My partner is not the least bit interested in my herps. My last purchase, a BRB, is my last herp. I made that promise to him ( of course, my BRB's name is Promise) that no more. This is his house too, and I respect that he does not enjoy having herps/fish in every room of the house (they aren't, but they are in most rooms). Not to mention the financial aspect of it as well.
He would not leave me or kick me out if I brought home another, but it would cause some serious probs, and I won't jeopardise things.
Bottom line....he doesn't like my herps, but deals with them pretty well. If I was unable, he would feed and care for them.
Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with stupidity
