J-Bird & I have been thinking about getting a pet for a while now. Thing is, over the past couple days, we’ve made a few big decisions (like we’re staying in the Amityville house & helping to fix it up) so now that we’re in a semi-stable environment, we thought it might be a good time to consider a pet.
We’re on a tight budget, so we need something pretty cheap & I kill things easily so something really resilient would be terrific too. J-Bird doesn’t mind reptiles (well, I don’t really either, depending on what it is), but I really want something fuzzy that I can play with. We’d prefer something in a cage so it doesn’t bother the roommate.
So, I give you, our list.
- Lizard. I might make it a fur coat to make up for it not being fuzzy. Potential names: Ozzy or Leslie.
- Chinchilla. Perhaps a little out of our price range…but sooo darn cute. Potential names: Tilley or Carlitos.
- Frog. Again, not fuzzy, but I can forgo the fuzziness because its J-Bird’s favorite animal. Potential names: Tenacious D or Petunia.
- Hamster. I think these bite, but J-Bird’s impression of them makes them cute. Potential names: Ben or Molly.
- Lionhead rabbit. Probably my favorite on this list because they have bangs. Potential names: Chaz or Midori.
- Hedgehog. Perhaps a little prickly & hard to care for (they hibernate), but very cute. Potential names: Limeade or Francesca.
Alright. There you have it. Now I need your opinions. Own any of these? Want to? Don’t think I should? Tell me!!
