Frogman, I have a snake. He's a six month old ball python named Loki and he's a super adorable ball of squish. When I tell people about my babysnake, people respond with things like "I'd kill it if I could! Snakes are gross!" It really upsets me because he's my babysnake and I love him, but I don't know how to respond to them. I know some people have phobias of snakes and I don't want to invalidate them, but at the same time, he's my babysnake and those jokes hurt. How do I talk to them?
Well, first I would tell them they are jerks for wanting to kill my pet.
Then after slapping them with a fish…
I would kindly tell them that a domesticated pet snake is very different than finding a snake in the wild. You are raising it, getting it adjusted to humans, and keeping it well fed and healthy so it doesn’t have a crazed temperament that hunger can cause in animals.
If they have phobias, they don’t have to see or touch the snake. But telling you they would kill your pet is just a jerk move… even if it is in jest.
I would let them know that isn’t cool. Offer to prove them wrong and have them meet Loki. Tell them he makes you happy and you don’t appreciate the death threats and talk of him being gross. Maybe ask how they would feel if you said that about their puppy or kitty. Turn it around on them.
Personally, I think snakes and lizards and all manners of herptiles can be quite cute. But if I found a wild snake hiding in my closet I would run screaming with my arms flailing and then call a braver person than myself to take them back to the wild.
People need to realize that pets and wild animals are very different things. Even the more slithery ones.
Snakes are cool. Give Loki a pat on the [wherever snakes like to be patted] for me.
My corgi always manages to pee on his little stubby feet every time we go for a walk. Does Otis do that? I don't know how to get him to stop peeing on himself.
Otis recently learned how to lift his rear stumps to more accurately claim bushes for Wales. He hasn’t had any trouble peeing on his feet, though he has fallen over when he lifted his leg with too much enthusiasm.
I’m not really sure what advice I can give. Perhaps someone can leave a tip or link in the comments. Maybe you can get him little rain boots like this piggy has.

do action movies know they can have more than one female character
Someone should make an action movie with all girls except for one guy and have no explanation or mention of it in the movie and then pay all of the actors to act surprised like they’d never noticed when they get the inevitable storm of questions.
This one male must have a shower scene, be saved by the protagonist at least once, and fall in love with a lead female.
