Animals

I need a pet again. I miss having something around the house.

I'd love to have a dog again, but I simply do not have the room for one right now. Possibly a very small one, but even then, I have Erik around. Erik, well, he has a tendency to fixate, and it's difficult to train a dog properly when you have a child that won't back off, and really, I don't want to ask him to do that. I'd just feel better waiting until I have more room and Erik grows up more. Him constantly carrying the thing around like a doll will just bug me.

Could have a cat again, but I have the same issue with Erik, and besides, cats in this house seem to not do well. I dunno why. Also, I admit to a bit of selfishness here, I want the pet for me, and a cat is a little too independent a creature for me right now. If it's not gonna come when I call it, then I want something I don't expect much out of.

I could always have rats again. I liked them, they were fun and easy to care for. Sure, I'd love another ferret, but that's more room and care than I want to deal with at the moment. As much as I like water, I don't want to deal with fish, I need something I can pet.

Wish I had the cash and knowledge for a big bird. Not canaries, etc. I'd love to have an owl around, dunno if they even can be pets, though. Even if so, probably a lot of work and stuff that I cannot deal with at the moment.

Hmm.
