Re: Help me decide on a pet!
I'm late to the game but I wouldn't rule out a cat. I've found my kids are WAY less interested in actually playing with our pets then you'd think. And the cats are great because they don't demand a ton of attention. Even our kitten is happy to play like a nut by himself for a while then pass out in the middle of the kids toys and sleep for hours. We got him at eight weeks and he's very tolerant of and completely unphased by the kids. They aren't rough with him at all but he's great at just walking off and finding him a spot where they can reach him when he's done with them.
