Bettas, close! I got a baby rat. :) I was going to get a hamster but the lady sweet-talked me into rats because I mentioned I wanted one anyway. She said a baby rat could live for a while in the size cage I was getting (the only cage that will fit in the space I have). When I got home, I doublechecked it with Pitluvs and she said that was fine as long as I upgrade. :)
I'll post a pic of her tomorrow, the light was all bad and she's hiding under her exercise wheel. Also, Pitluvs told me to get her a friend so I'll be doing that.
And the best part? My mom, who was very much against me getting any kind of rodent, actually really likes little Delilah and said that if she and the friend I'm going to get her really do need a bigger cage, she'll let me put it in the rec room. *dances jig of joy*
It was a good day, except for the nasty lady at the Petsmart parking lot who accused me of scratching the paint on her car when I accidentally knocked it with my car door. Both my dad and I looked and saw absolutely no damage but she insisted on getting our information to file a claim. She was gonna call me the b word but I guess she thought twice with my dad standing there and just told me I "was being a B about it." I said, "Right. Happy Thanksgiving and have a nice holiday." She didn't know how to react to that. She was mad because I asked her if she wanted my social security number (she wanted my date of birth, for pete's sake) and if she did, I wasn't going to give it to her. My mom was scammed by someone who asked for her social security so I'm extra wary.
Anyways. Also picked up the Fluval Spec V since it was half off, going to put it in the bathroom. And here I thought I was doing so well saving money this month. >.>
