Hi, my name is evilcresyluna, and I don't need any more pets right now. But I want to know:

1. What animals would/are you planning to get in the near future? What holds you back?

2. What animals would/are you planning to get if things work in your favor over some time? Same reservations?

3. What animals would you LOVE to get but really doubt you'll ever be up to caring for? Or have the time for?



For me:
1. Small parrot. I have a long list of species that I'd get one of tomorrow if I didn't have $0 moneys and no car. Once I get a chance to volunteer at a rescue (closest is 1.5 hours away) I'll have a better idea of what species would suit me, and start planning for that.

2. Some male rats (probably a trio) and ferrets. The trio of rats because I love boy rats, don't feel that they'd be too much to care for in addition to the zoo and seriously want to help one or both of the rescues my current rat girls came from (no breeding, don't worry). The ferrets my bf really wants, and I gotta agree they're cute boogers. If we settle into a house in the next few years, I'd like to have a dog.

3. Sugar gliders, guinea pigs, one of the large parrots (particularly cockatoos or a lorie/lorikeet), a snake. Snakes I love from afar because I'm none too sure that even with frozen/thawed I'd be comfortable keeping rats/mice and a snake, but I do so admire them.

Okay, 'nough of me babbling, next! ;)

Awesome post!!! I love it :D

Near future? A dog. My next pet will be a dog most likely. Probably a mix, a senior from a shelter. I want my first dog to be something... relativley easy. I havn't owned a dog in years and don't want to jump right in with puppyhood. I have to wait because I do not have a)the time b)the finances or c)the lifestyle to support a dog at this time

2. What animals would/are you planning to get if things work in your favor over some time? Same reservations?
I've mentioned this a few times on this community, but I want a chinchilla. I was supposed to have one already but my cats found me instead. Now I'm waiting for the chinny :) I picture myself with a farking zoo one day :D Cats, dogs, little critters, etc. I want a Newfie. That's my dream dog. Reasons why I dont have them are the same as above!

3. What animals would you LOVE to get but really doubt you'll ever be up to caring for? Or have the time for?
a horse and birds of any kind. I will never have enough dedication to be a good bird owner. Ever. Best if I realise that one now eh? And I've always loved horses, I picture myself with a little hobby farm with one horse or two and lots of other animals running around. But I know it'll never actually happen!
