Hehe, my mom is warming up to kermit, She wasn't ever against me getting it except because of money issues that i have never had a problem with I will get things for my Kerm before me which she now admits. The only pet she had a problem with was when I got my first rats, then she loved them as much as I did. She thought it was soooooo cool she could call my rat from the other room and she would run to her. ALL of my family tell everyone they know about how i have an iguana and it is over 3.5 feet long to everyone they know, so I get told about how my aunts coworker has an iguana, and my moms coworkers cousin used to have an iguana. And since I have had lots of animals and am really interested in them my roommates think I know everything about every animal on earth.... I don't... at all. hehe.
