You should set her free. She is morose because she is being kept in
captivity when she is by nature a free creature that Mother Gaia created
to soar the thermals, not sit in your livingroom as a conversation piece.
As for the rats, I suspect you are a serial killer in the making.
Something is wrong with you and you should seek professional help as soon

We gotta make a change...

Let's change the way we eat, let's change the way we live
and let's change the way we treat each other.
You see the old way wasn't working so it's on us to do
what we gotta do, to survive.
