Since LJ was down, I didn't get to tell anyone outside of #asr that I went to my mother's place last night. And when I got there.. well, I don't know if LJ was up yet or not, I couldn't get online anyway because the rats had chewed over the cable again.
I should have known a woman who lets her rats chew over the same cable numerous times, and still doesn't keep a set of spares, couldn't be trusted with watching my cat. Well.. it never surprised me to hear she had ran away. But I had no other alternatives. Putting her in a pet hotel for three weeks would cost more than I make in a month. My dad was going to Thailand, leaving the same day I did (And he would have said no anyway). There were no one else I could ask. And I couldn't leave her here, alone for three weeks. No one I could ask to give her food and water every day.
Going there and her not being there really hurt. I went outside and called for her, even though I knew she must have long left the area.
Whether I blame my mother for being inattentive, or myself for leaving Odessa in my mom's care, or for leaving her.. doesn't change the pain I feel.
Hovland, the rat with brains
Didn't get a good pic of the other rat.
