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! ;)

Okay!

1) I am getting a female rat in about 2-3 weeks. Then, I am on the waiting list at three different ratteries for a dumbo rex, preferably a blue. I think I'm gonna have to wait a while for that though. But, by the summer I should have one.

2) A doggie. Actually, my roommate is getting the dog! I'd just help care for it and love it and spoil it. Right now our apartment is too small, but we're moving up in April. If we get a large enough apartment we are going to get a small to medium sized dog. If we end up getting a house with a nice yard we're going to get a medium to large dog. We wanna mutt. A scrappy, adorable, little mutt. :) But if we end up in a small apartment for some reason, this won't work. :(

3) Male rats. I REALLY want some older male rats. I *might* get in contact with my local rescue to see if they have a pair of neutered rats. I'd keep them seperate from the girls, but I'd want them neutered anyway because I have an escape artist, and I wouldn't want any whoopsie babies. :)
