why dont you just look for an apartment near the local zoo?
you wouldnt have to see the that way but get to smell them and
visit them everyday.

I dont see the big deal
I friend of mine years ago was into raising rats so he gave one to my girl friend and we brought it home ,you grow to like the little guys,he had a cool personality.
His name was Dwatster.
After we had him a few weeks we could let him walk around in the yard or watch him in the walk around in a room in the house ,then after he got his exersize we would put him back in the cage .
We figured he needed company other than just us humans so we bought him Mrs.Dwatster.
Before you knew it there was a ton of little ones eventially we took them to a wilderness area and let them live free.
It was a good experiance and each and everyone of them had their own personality.
Some were nice ,some were very anti social towards people ,some were playful and some were lazy.
Anyway i dont see why your dising someone that is raising of Gods creatures .
Maybe its not your friend that has the problem .

ok well maybe it wasn't 50 cages... maybe 2 or 3 but the rats were so big they looked like
they took up the whole place... with big yellow teeth and drooling slobber AND LOOKING AT ME LIKE I WAS DINNER !!!!
Then the snake thing.... OMG. I was surrounded and maybe miscounted the exact number of cages and rats but there were several, seemed like 500.

But there was only one very big snake, I'm sure of that. The snakes body was big around as a big fat watermelon. It could have eaten me in one bite !
He said it was a pyhton.. arent those deadly? ugh !

He should have told me his affection for all that. I am a person who likes cuddley, soft animals who are cute and warm.
:)

Keep in mind, if your screaming inside, you could easily miscount.

:)
maybe? it was 6... 10 pound rats ? either way... his whole place was filled with yucky
stuff.

Lots of folks have pet rats.
However, wild caught rats don't make good pets--they are not docile and can carry disease.
Also, he seems to have way too many of them. Have you considered reporting him to the authorities? It sounds like a health hazard to have so many.

here's a question for ya. To bring this into the context of dating again. If you met the woman of your dreams (whoever she is to you) and she was scared of snakes (or rats, whatever ... girls switch it to guys and the exotic pet of your desires) .... who would would you get rid of??

Reply
If i met a women that had unconventional pets [lizards,rats etc],I would have no problem with it and would actually think it was kinda neat,with one exception ,if she raised Roaches and kissed them on the nose like most people do with their pets ,I would have to say we have no future.
I realize that Roaches are also Gods creatures ,but i have a hard time not getting discusted ,I also realize this is my hang up not the Roaches.
