I dreamt I had a pet rat. It was a white rat. It had hurt its leg and my ex wrapped its leg up in sellotape. I took it to the vet. The vet said oh no all this rat’s legs are burnt from the electric fence. The police had put up electric fences everywhere and they were killing people and animals because the shock was too strong.
The vet had to amputate my rat’s legs and tail. I was worried that it was cruel but the vet said “we’ll see”. I looked after my rat and cuddled it and it purred. I taught the rat to make a special meow when it needed to wee or poo and I would hold it over the loo.
Someone said “It’s not fair if the rat can’t swim”, so I put the rat in a tank of water. It could swim very well and come up for air. It liked digging in the gravel at the bottom of the tank. It even play fought with the other axolotls.
