I am frustrated. VERY frustrated. Why? Okay... Here goes.
So, lately i've really been missing the company of my rats. I mean, before I was missing them, but that was just it - I was missing THEM. Now it's their company - or rather, lack of - that is really pestering me. So I got thinking.
I've kinda (okay, maybe really) always wanted ferrets. Hell I even named my rat "Ferett" (Purposeful spelling btw). So I've been doing a bit of research on ferrets as pets, chatting with ferret owners, calculating costs etc. And I decided something.
I want a ferret. No, wait up. Make that two. Yes, two ferrets.
So I had this cage thing that I used to use as a rat run for the ratties for their free range time when they weren't inside in their much smaller cage. The rat run cage was 5 stories, as high as from the ground to my shoulders (and i'm TALL), and over 1 metre wide. It was about 60-70cm deep if I remember correctly, as well. Basically what i'm trying to say is that it was MASSIVE. It was advertised as a "cat cage," and cost $650 new. Second hand, they can still sell for a good $300.
Damn, it was the Presidential Suite of cages. LUXURY. The rats worshipped the time they spent in it.
Okay, cutting to the chase now.
Don't know how exactly to describe this, but basically the other day one of my parents decided it would be a good idea to give my $650 cage away to a stranger who we obviously have not seen since.
We don't know who he/she is and have no way in hell of contacting them.
I am PISSED OFF. Like, beyond pissed.
MY good cage that I could have used for ferrets/rats whatever, or sold and made myself a good few hundred dollars. I could've even given it to a friend. Hell, I could've been ASKED or even TOLD that they had given away MY expensive and perfectly good cage to a complete freaking stranger! D:<
Well that turned from a random blog into a rant. Meh.
