FML - The follow-up
damselfly Say more :
OP here--had to get an FML account to comment. To my roommate's credit, she had the mess all cleaned up by the time I got home--only the smell was left. I can't blame her for having snakes, either, since I moved into the apartment knowing she had them, and being ok with it. Can't say I'm too thrilled with her storing the rats in the freezer, but they do have to eat, and I least I was able to put my foot down on her thawing them in the oven (seriously, WTF?).

As a fellow snake keeper, I also have a freezer with mice in them and unfortunately the same thing happened to me once. To be honest, the smell of the other meats was WAY worse than that of the mice, they smelled kind of... Earthy. What I hated more was all the wasted lives of the mice (some might call me a hypocrite for that, but I think feeding a pet is still a useful goal, while throwing them away isn't).

I'm glad you wrote that, #45. Rats are my absolute favorites in the animal kingdom, and I've been keeping them for a few years now.

But it always comforts me to see that some snake owners see these animals as living beings, not solely as food. It shows respect towards all living creatures and an understanding of the food chain, however cruel it may be.
