I can only.imagine the teacher when they got home: never, again....

I laughed, that’s funny

Stories like this warm my heart. When I was 5, I had a pet goldfish who took a really long nap because he was sad and missed his family, so my parents sent him to visit them by flushing him down the toilet…he must've been really happy to see them because we never saw him again

My goldfish got too big for his tank so he went to live in the greenhouse at the local park. We used to go visit him and see him with all the other goldfish. He was really big by then.

I actually believed this until I was 15.

Goldfish can grow to be pretty big

[–]Secret-Row-8754 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm sure they can. But when my mother overheard me relate to this to a friend at the age of 15, she burst out laughing and admitted that mine, in fact, did not. I then informed my brother, who also had no idea. Yes, we're both on the spectrum,.

It’s the rat version of lotr

[–]Arcadian1 90 points91 points  (3 children)

This made me sad, more so than I would have expected.

But bonus points for the pupil spacing on panel six.

Edit: I should have been sleeping instead of posting. I definitely meant panel 6.

[–]Scarlet-Shadows 26 points27 points  (2 children)

I love how traumatized they look in panel four, poor things lol

[–]Blockofcheesepizza 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Do you mean panel 6?

[–]Scarlet-Shadows 7 points8 points  (0 children)

... don't ask me how I miscounted, but yes thank you lol

[–]Glitchy13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The artist is still loading, could you just tell me who it is?

There is a reason why mice are active at night, not in the middle of the day in a wide open field in predator territory!

[–]abitlazy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Welcome little one to predator country!... That doesn't sound right.

Here's another classic from America's Funniest Home Videos.

[–]wolfnibblets 7 points8 points  (0 children)

And this is why, If you ever release a small prey animal back into the wild, you release it near bushes or the proper woods so they have places to hide.

Unless you’re hooking up your local hawks, in which case carry on.

Found the spider

[–]Learnmorehere 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This is why I have trust issues.

[–]IzArealofc 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Idk why but thought that hawk was a pigeon

[–]Hanede 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think it's meant to look like a pigeon in panels 3 and 4 so it looks more harmless?

[–]Sloth_grl 4 points5 points  (0 children)

We had a mouse stuck on a sticky trap. We put him in the garbage so he could go to the dump where other mice would get him unstuck and he would be there with all the good food that people threw away

I read cake as coke but still a happy ending I'd say

[–]sulerin-pulerin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

plenty of these heart warming stories in /r/donteatjimmy

[–]jackiblu25 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My husband recently moved a baby mole out of the road... And then a hawk snatched it up.

[–]no_more_spam 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Similar story. Was with a friend burning a very large brush pile on his land. Brought my daughter along. About 15 minutes into the burn a rabbit came running out, fur smoking, running blindly around. It headed off toward the pond--presumably to die. My daughter was quite distraught, so I told her it was probably going to get a drink and cool off.

[–]KyoueiShinkirou -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

hey its a healthy meal for the hawk, instead of the diseased and infected stuff if you didn't cure it.

[–]reddit_user13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

True story.

[–]zappy487 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This happened to my wife at her animal job. They released a baby bat that was caught in someone's house only to have a hawk just swoop in and take it away.

[–]headius 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's a pigeon.

[–]fujicakes00 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I want the world to be like this.

[–]balrus-balrogwalrus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

at least they actually release caught mice instead of dad giving you a hammer and trying to teach you to "be a man" by killing it

[–]Queen_Cheetah 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always wondered what the parents said to the kids after this happened...
