Re: What kinds of pet(s) do you have, if you wanted the pet FOR your lo?
I have a poodle and a cat. I never intended to have a child in the dog's lifetime but he is wonderful around the baby. If I were you I would consider a rat for a pet. They are so affectionate, smart, and just really sweet. Rats are way better than hamsters. They need their cages cleaned very regularly though and need the cage, food, bedding, supplies, etc. that all add up to being one expensive rodent.
