I would love to get a pet for my little boys but don't know if we live in the right environment. We live in a very small house, too little space indoors but we could probably manage a small hutch in the garden.
In the summer we travel to Cornwall (from London) for at least one weekend every month and the whole of the summer holidays.
Is a Guinea pig or rabbit a good choice? Is it cruel to travel with pets and keep them outside?
I agree its sensible not to get a pet unless you have a lot of time for it. rabbits are the most neglected pets in the UK-they have it pretty bad. And defo need alot more cleaning up after than a cat so its good youve decided against them. What about regular visits to your local rescue/rspca centre - they always need volunteers for dog walking, cat 'cuddling' and generally helping socialisation of the rabbits & guineas?
I love the immortals! But on a serious note, your tank has probably been set up for years and you've got great ph and bacteria levels. I once had a 3 spot gourami that got to 9. He was a miserable thing, always on the prowl for my neons.
The immortals are really immortal. They get topped up with tap water, they seem to thrive on being forgotten about. I think if we took them out of the tank they would still live. They do resemble the Cullens in a less pale, fishy kind of way. Best outdoor pet would be an earthworm, needs no looking after and every time you dig the garden you would see it.
