I live in Birmingham and I'm moving to a different part now but a WEEK ago my mom pulled up to the gas station and my mom told me don't get out * while locking the doors * because these two sketchy a*s guys were there and I was wearing my fursuit so they are like meow meow I am awkwardly laughing but after one of them look in my window because I rolled it down my window about 2 inches and one said I'll take you to my house and we can have so much fun looking toward my b*****s after that my mom rolled up the windows and we got the h**l out of there did I mention it's was 12:54AM
