I did some research. Guinea pigs are fearful at first but can be very friendly once they bond with you. They also urinate very often and can smell. Hamsters of today at aggressive. I agree. Gerbils also make good pets and aren't solely nocturnal. However, they are very social and you need to have more than one as they aren't happy living alone. Mice make good pet, but are nasty. Rats are clean and don't urinate often and you can let them out of their cages and play with them without worry that they'll run away once you have bonded with them. I am about sold on getting my DGD a rat. All these rodents aren't much different except in size and tail length.
