Woman leaves husband for pet rats ( Vermont )
WPTZ ^ | Mar 12, 2013

Chantal Banks says she loves her rats more than she loves people. So when her husband told her he didn't want rats in the house anymore, she moved into a two-bedroom apartment so she could keep her 19 pets.

...

"My husband will never have the type of bond that I have with my rats," Banks said. "My rats don’t judge me. They love me for who I am. When I cry, they lick my tears. And when they’re hungry, I feed them."

Husband should have poisoned the rats before she left.

I’d be willing to bet the husband is not too broken up about this turn of events.

And, when you die all alone in your rat infested apartment, they will eat you.

When I was a kid I had two pet rats. One turned out to be female, which resulted in baby rats. After the mother died, and the babies ate her, my mother and step-father made them all disappear.

I’m reminded of the rather bizarre music video by the rather bizarre Tori Amos, featuring rats crawling over her in the Hindu “rat temple” (the temple of Deshnoke), and scenes of Orthodox Jews and Pentacostal “snake handlers”, for some reason.

Yep, she’s a nut.

Well,at least you learned a valuable lesson.It's a rat-eat-rat world out there.When I was a kid (long ago) there was a pet shop near my school that had a monkey in the window.I *begged* my parents to let me have one but they said no.It wasn't 'till years later that I realized that the fact contained in my tagline might have had something to do with their refusal.

Monkeys are vile creatures, which gives credence to some views that Liberals descended from them.
