Do/can intact male mice get hormonally aggressive/fight each other like rats can? Went to the pet store with my mom and they had intact male ‘fancy’ mice that looked like they’d been fighting (closed scratches everywhere but seemed to get along fine then). Or maybe they had just been introduced recently? Just curious because I don’t know much about mice
Male mice should never be housed together past 4 weeks of age. They will fight, and can even kill each other over territory. That pet shop is being cruel to the poor little fellows.
im not ashamed to admit that id let 26 year old Joe Biden hit it
We will call it the Tiger Defense League. We will bear a great shield on our arms and scowls on our faces.
Our purpose? The fierce protection of Sebastian Moran.
Because it stings me something wicked when people step all over him for their agenda. Sometimes they insult his intelligence by making him an idiot and they use him as comedic fodder against Jim’s brilliance. Sometimes they turn him into nothing more than a pet. Sometimes they erase who he is and turn him into a baby sitter and I always feel so damn protective of him. (And Jim. But Jim has his defenders already.)
I keep my mouth shut because I don’t have the energy in my body to get angry about something I can ignore. It’s such a small thing, it doesn’t really matter what some random person thinks so long as it’s not being thrust into my face. I don’t believe in war amongst your own ship. I don’t even believe in war amongst opposing ships. It’s foolish to waste energy arguing instead of enjoying what you love simply because someone enjoys it differently.
But you better believe that I will cradle my grown ass, morally fucked masochist of a sniper and call him my baby. I will protect him dearly because I don’t need to lash out, I just need to try and preserve everything that he is. Everything that I know and believe him to be.
This isn’t some call to arms. I’m not trying to incite a riot. Do what you’re going to. It’s just that sometimes, for a few minutes, I get violently protective of Sebastian Moran and I needed to get it off my chest.

Let me tell you about my little Mormor apple trees. Yes, you heard right. Fuckin Mormor plants. Shut your face.
(click photos for captions)
They began as seeds from the same apple, and were raised in a jar of wet paper towel until leaves sprouted, and their roots were strong enough to support themselves. As little sprouts (2nd photo), they were separated and potted into two old pasta sauce jars, where they remained until I could bring them home and get them some real pots. One has a reddish brown stem and darker leaves; the other has a green stem and its leaves are a little brighter. They were both roughly the same size at the time.
Being me, of course I had to experiment. Once separated, I began to feed diluted crushed vitamin tablets to one plant and not the other. I stopped this after a few weeks because it appeared to stunt its growth, since the red sprout was an inch shorter than his green brother. It was the height difference that prompted me to name them Seb and Jimmy, after my two favourite criminals. (Jimmy, not Jim, because it’s cute. Shut up.)
Since then, however, Jimmy has outgrown Seb in both height and leaf count (1st photo). Perhaps all the difficulties he endured and overcame in his youth has made his systems stronger. Seb, who has been spoiled with clean water and no major problems, has fallen short in contrast. They now seem to resemble their counterparts in a metaphorical sense rather than a physical one.
Both are now fed with diluted tea and coffee whenever I drink it, since caffeine helps promote plant growth! *off I go to hide in a corner*
*SQUEAL* It’s the Mormor apple babies! >O<!!
THEIR SYMBOLS. PANI. WHY ARE YOU SO ADORABLE.
