I have 2 cats and a chinchilla (how’s THAT for a “C” word??) I would love to have more critters but apartment rules and the stern disapproval of Mr. POSSLQ every time I bring up wanting a new critter have kept me (thusfar) from actually getting more critters.
In my life, I’ve had cats, a chinchilla, a rabbit, several mice, there were (very briefly) rats in the apartment (they weren’t mine), a bearded dragon and a russian tortoise. If I ever have the good fortune to (finally) move into a house, I’d really like to get a hedgehog.
Mr. POSSLQ had ferrets in the days before he met me. He couldn’t bring them with him (long story) and I think he’d probably prefer to not think what became of them. Were they less work and easier to maintain, we would probably have gotten a ferret by now.
I’ve never had birds. For a brief time growing up we had a dog. I used to love to take our tortoise outside and let him munch on the dandelions in the yard (oh the row we had with the landlord who wanted to put poison on the lawn to kill the dandelions!)
So, bloggy friends, do you have any critters?
