My dd has three ferrets. Willie, Ryley, and Lassie. Two boys and a girl. She bought a ferret (or small animal) play pen for them. You should see them play. LOL Cute little critters, but they stink.

I also have a cat. My Valerie. She's part Tabby and part Calico.

Mrs.Maniac----I like that reference. Lizards are snakes with feet. LOL Lizards bring back a memory of when my DS was 2. We wnt into a pet shop and he saw a cage with lizards int it. He said, "Mommy look at the baby dinosaurs." LOL

Well I'm rambling, again.....

We just brought home 2 rats last evening. My almost 8 year old son is having trouble letting them get situated (we won't take them out of the cage for a day as reccomended) They are cute as can be. Ds has been wanting a pet of his own for some time now. We had 2 indoor cats which both passed away & have not really had an inside animal for about a year. Anyway, we had been leaning toward Ginea Pigs, but we talked to several differnt pet stores & they all recommended the rats. They are very inquisitive & friendly. I am a bit worried because the box we brought them home in (we were over an hour drive from the store to home,) had brown & green poop in it. Some poop was mushy. Also, one seems to be sneezing. Is any of this cause to think one could be ill? I think the mushy poop could just be that they went tee tee on top of it, but the green color? Sorry to be talking about bodily functions, but I am already attatched to them!

MKS--rats are wonderful pets!! The green poop could be either a result of their food, or the stress of moving to a new home. Also, if one is sneezing, it could be a result of a cold. I just wanted to give you a quick warning--that the pet store may not have told you. DO NOT use wood shavings(pine, cedar, etc) for bedding--the oils are toxic to rats. Also--they love toys--I buy mine the hard baby toys from the dollar store, lol.

I hope you enjoy your new pets--hehe, even my dh has grown attached to ours, and he was very "iffy" about having rats.

Mrs. Maniac, Thank you for answering! The poop in the cage is all normal looking that we can see. We got them from Petsmart & we talked to at least 5 different workers & 4 of them were rat owners. They were very helpful & knowledgeable. They did mention the bedding. We got the fluffy looking stuff. Now we are having a little trouble trying to pick them up. Now that they are home, I am timid & don't want to spook them or get bit. They like to sniff us & will put their teeth on us. I would call it nibbling. Certainly not true biting. I seem to remember one worker telling us not to put their shelter in for the first week so they couldn't hide from you. It is too late for that & their shelter is too big to fit out the door. They still seem happy & healthy. I'm glad for that.

I forgot to mention their names are Naked (he is hairless) and Squeek. Yes, my dh was also very hesitant & is slowly warming up to them. I hope to get some pictures of them, but they are moving or sleeping in their hide-y hole.

My dd's preschool teacher gave us a Brown Anole last Wednesday. It's a tiny lizard. It's actually really cute. We named her Annie Anole. Anoles don't like to be handled so it's a pet to be looked at only. I had to do a lot of research online because I had never heard of a Brown Anole before we brought it home. I had to buy her a new cage because they need at least a 10 gallon cage and I bought her a basking perch w/ hiding spaces behind it and Saturday I bought her a branch to climb on. She has a heating/basking light & a UVB light, I have to mist her cage w/ water at least twice daily, and she eats live crickets. The crickets are the worst part. They're hard to get out of the container, they'll eat each other, and they can bite the anole.

It's odd how you can get so attached to a pet that you didn't even plan to get. She's a reptile, but she's "my" reptile & I love her already.

If I can figure out how to make the pictures small enough to attach them I'll post a picture of her & her cage.

So now I have an American Bulldog (Bella), a cat (Shadow), two goldfish (Allie & Spidey), and a Brown Anole (Annie). My zoo is growing...and somehow I'm the only one who takes care of any of them. Remind me later that I don't want any more animals!
