i thought it was only a mynah story

Think carefully about your life and about your pets. You sit reading this, your cat in your lap or your dog at your side or your gerbil smoking round on its wheelything. You're safe. There's not going to be any late night knock at the door threatening you to give up your pet.

Or is there?

I went looking today for mynah bird stories and found an excellent one from Sri Lanka that offhandedly managed to remind me that some people live their lives and love their pets in states of unrest we can't even imagine. They do this with calm and sense, and their mynah birds live to an old age of 18. Even if the neighbors sometimes don't.
