Question by liebekatz2: How do I tell my son I had to have his pet mice destroyed?
My son is 10. The mice have been sick for quite a while with mange-mites. We had the mice to the vet, who prescribed medication for them, which didn’t help. The only thing left was to have the mice destroyed. I have to pick my son up from school in an hour. How should I tell him?
Answer by ♥ButterFlyAngel♥ I wouldn’t tell him. Just play it like they got loose and got out of the house because he may get so upset with you for killing them.

*Audio is a bit crap so maybe use a set of headphones for less crap sound* Felt like recording a little solo tonight. Wanted to try out a few new ideas, some went well some went not so well (tapped slides!) but I wanted the video to be spontaneous, got a bit silly towards the end. Enjoy the faces!

Dog food manufacturers have acknowledged the priceless bonding between you and your pet. In their advertisements they confirm your pet is not a property like your TV or your car. No, you have a real relationship with your furry pal and it deserves the healthiest dog food. Then when your dog dies after eating it, it suddenly returns to being just property and you get the animal’s market value plus the veterinary bills recovered. Is that fair?
Animal rights lawyers and pet owners now argue these laws are outdated and fail to consider the position of pets being companion animals in today’s society. The growing legal recognition of pet’s value is in the spotlight because of the dog food recall affecting over 100 brands in the USA. Animal rights advocates aim to upgrade the legal status of pets to somewhere between property and humans. Dog Food Blog | Best Dog Food Guide
