[suspicious snape voice] “you’re saying your friend named remus lupin definitely isn’t a werewolf”
[shocked, disappointed james potter voice] “remus lupin, a werewolf?? is it because he’s named after a guy raised by a wolf? is it because his surname literally means wolf? well. you’re wrong. his middle name is john, there’s no way he could be a werewolf.”
Regardless of how you feel about other people’s pets, whether they’re rats or snakes or spiders or lizards or whatever else, don’t be a dick. Do not make jokes about killing them, do not comment on how disgusting they are and do not act like the animal is a contagious disease that you need to get away from. These are our beloved pets. You wouldn’t like it if someone treated your pets like that, so please don’t do it to ours just because they’re a little bit different.
