I am an avid animal lover, plain and simple. Many of my pets were rescues, abandoned, unwanted, until I took them in. They help with my depression, and I give them the best care and love (and giving myself an empty pocketbook, hehe) I possibly can. From rats, to reptiles, to invertebrates such as african black millipedes and death's head and giant cave cockroaches, I love them all. There's even exotics, such as an egyptian spiny mouse, and a short-tailed opossum, in my house.
