    Gf and I wanna get a new pet, any suggestions?


    She absolutely adores dogs, but I’m more of a cat person myself. In an effort to compromise, I suggested we should get a different type of pet instead. I was thinking of getting a bearded dragon or maybe even an exotic breed of fish. Any suggestions for alternative pets that are fairly easy to take care of and doesn’t require much space? We’re living in a tiny apartment in the city and want something that can live contentedly in a small enclosure. Plus we're going on a Ukraine ski trip soon and we were hoping it would be the kind of pet that doesn't get lonely easily. Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forum! I am also looking for a pet, I had a cat 7 years ago. Maybe a hamster or a guinea pig? They are cute pets and pretty easy to care for! Birds are also good pets, finches are one of the best kinds. But you need to let the finch out of its cage to fly around the room a lot.

    (I might get a finch!)

    she's extremely scared of anything looking close to a rodent so hamsters are a no-no

    Even a rabbit?
    An inside cat is a safe cat.

    Whatever pet you decide on, before you get anything do your research on the pet you are thinking of getting to be sure it's the right fit for your lifestyle and that you know what kind of care it will require.
