I would have snapped at Grandpa Simpson a long time ago. That's disgustingly rude and inconsiderate and GAAAAHHHH I would have told him to get the hell out! That's so terrible >.<
Something else that's terrible is that I'm going to tell you I'm going through the same thing at the moment, as my remaining gerbil seems to be on his deathbed. I know to most people that doesn't even compare, but I love my animals more than I love my own family. They've my fluffy/scaly children, and I've already had to unexpectantly say goodbye to 2 of them this year. Now Old Man Pickle looks like he's finally going to join his brother. I've been away for a few days and he's held on, but he and pippin were the first pets I bought myself 3 years ago and I don't want to have say goodbye to him ='(
So I'm here for you Panda if you wanted someone to talk to. I know I'm not Lady Friend, but I'm here for you. =] xxxx
