Hi Rocky! Happy early birthday!

So if I clean one of my bookshelves of all the clutter and put that in boxes until I move, I think I can fit a mouse cage up there. We'll see. I have so many books that I feel like they are going to fall on me and bury me.

Another option is if I clear out the fish in the bathroom. But then I'd be worried about the little critter breathing in cat litter dust. Plus, the bookshelf is up high, no cats can reach. Why do I want another pet so bad? It must be a sickness.

Stupid DVD recorder/VCR is not fixed so it will the first year since 1997 that I haven't recorded the Broadway acts from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. :(

Silver, I'm so sorry about your girl. :(

That fish looks like a darter or a goby. Darters would be coldwater, goby would be brackish.

Mouse? Is that a good idea with 7 normal cats and 1 electric one?

Olympia, haha, yeah, that's what my mom thinks. I'm like, "Who cares? I want a pet!"

Kinetic, I actually want rats but for those I definitely have to wait until I move. Mice only need small cages so I think I can I get one. I hope. :)

Hey Sakura, You are going to get a mouse? Cool, so somebody named Hidden Walrus with a thread called
Betta laying on bottom, flashing, shaking, rapid breathing
that you might be able to help with I have no clue what it could be, but maybe you might?

Yeah they're probably one of the few critters that can actually use those cages with all the tubes.^_^

Of course that hamster keeps getting put on delay because amazon keep messing with me by raising the price of the cage...>.<

Yuuie, how long was the power out? If it was longer than 6 hours, then some of your beneficial bacteria may have died and that's what caused the water to go cloudy.

Kinetic, link me to the cage you're thinking of?
