But I want to know your guys option.
I want a normal pet that is small.
I love Cute Pets.
I want to be able to keep it in my room.
I want to be able to take it with me for vacation. (optional)
Please make a list of pets you think it’s perfect for my birthday present.

hamster(had 2)
mice(DO NOT get males.. they stink no matter how often or how good you clean the cage but they were fun to play with)(had 2)
gerbil(had 1)
2 rats(getting 4 this week)
guinea pig(had 2)
rabbit(had A LOT)
if you like fish get a betta fish(had 5, have 1)

reptiles:
bearded dragons
geckos
corn snakes
red ear slider turtle(had a baby one)

exotic:(a lil more expensive)
hedgehog
2 sugar gliders(need a lot of attention and a big cage)
chinchilla
ferret

i would personally get either 2 rats(very trainable, you can teach it to do tricks) or corn snake(they’re cool and smaller then boas and pythons, they are a great first time snake owner), you should research on those and see if you like them. leopard geckos would be great too.

get 2 rats!!

    Hi kate,

    Leopard Geckos might be something you could look into. They are small, can be kept in your room, are quite easy to care for, and are inexpensive to maintain.

    I have my own, and last year i bought my girlfriend one for christmas. Her and her two younger twin sisters absolutely love her, and get great fun from bathing her and feeding her.

    Best of luck finding your new pet. Remember, and pet isnt just a pet, its a bestfriend, and they like to be treated that way.

    I didn’t see "an easy to care for" pet. Are you ready for the responsibility of keeping a pet? Vet visits, food, cleaning up after it, training it, etc……???

    You need to get a turtle! I’ve always wanted a pet turtle since I was seven, but they had no turtles in stock so I got a dog. Fish aren’t that fun all the time and you can’t play with them. Turtles aren’t that super messy since I’ve seen my friend’s turtle. She told me that if I touched it and didn’t wash my hands before eating that I would get some type of disease, so you may want to know that already. Red ear sliders are the perfect pets to get if you’re not used to turtles. I heard that they’re very easy to care for and they are very playful. You may want to buy 2 or 3 so one doesn’t get lonely. I once had a bunny, but she pooped a lot and often didn’t like me. Small pets like hamsters of rabbits poop a lot. I also had 4 birds before, but they always pecked me and flew around the house and hid every time we let them out of their cage, which was huge and well decorated with branches and little bowls with food and water. I guess it depends where you get the bird because when I was 4, I had the same type of bird, but he was shy and very kind. He didn’t poop a lot, but he got sick easily and died. You may have to get closer with the turtle though because when I had once petted my friend’s turtle, he hid in his shell and didn’t want to come out. You should buy a big tank though because your turtle(s) will love to explore, and they get a lot bigger after 3 years or less. (These turtle facts are experience from a friend.) Here’s a website that sells turtles and turtle supplies: http://turtleshack.com/store/

    Hi!
    The moment I saw this question, I knew the correct answer! Geckos are NOT the right pet because they can stress out and die if u hold them. You can’t really cuddle with them and play with them everyday. What your looking for is a guinea pig! Tons of people keep their guinea pigs in their room. Guinea pigs need attention everyday and love it! They need someone to cuddle and pet them everyday. They also need floor time. It’s when u put them on the floor and they run around. They at least need to be played with for an hour. I have a 5 month old guinea pig, so I know a lot about guinea pigs. They’re are many responsibilities if u want a guinea pig though. You need to clean their cage twice a week and pick up their poop once a day. You have to wash them once a month with warm water and baby shampoo and trim their nails once a month. Guinea pigs live up to 8 years IF u play with them everyday, cuddle them, clean their cage twice a week, and leave them toys. I hope u liked my answer and by the way they’re are many more things about guinea pigs that u need to know, so be prepared before u get a guinea pig! Good luck with your pet! :)
