New boy-who-needs-a-nickname has been very patient with my "um, yah, so for the second time in one weekend I cancel due to RATMERGENCY."
edit: Needs SURGERY. More than $500. And since she saw a vet it's animal abuse for me to just take her home and make her comfy, so no choice. I am now scary-ass broke, but Celeste will be ok (I hope - sometimes rats die of anaesthesia), and she will have a hilariously cute cone collar (on a RAT) so I'm trying not to freak out about food, and how I will buy it.
SRSLY. No more pets. REMIND ME.
