They do don't they?

My kids are desperate for a pet. Me, not so much. I've said they can have one that doesn't poo. I'm safe now, aren't I?

Unless they ask for a robot dinosaur, yes, I suppose so.

Birds don't poo. It's called something else, cos it's wee and poo at once.....I think. Could they use that as a loophole?

KittyVonCatsworth Thu 19-Nov-15 14:49:24

Stick insects...I imagine they poo <goes to google>

Nataleejah Thu 19-Nov-15 14:49:41

Now they make robot pets that pee and poo

flanjabelle Thu 19-Nov-15 14:51:42

Owls make pellets don't they? Not actually poo?

KittyVonCatsworth Thu 19-Nov-15 14:51:46

and now we know...!

My mother had a red rump tarantula and that didnt poo as it spits out the parts of the crickets it doesn't eat. Hmmmm maybe not then lol

except now they're going to pester you daily for one of these.

In the end, you'll be so sick of trying to explain that you'll be begging them to let you get a gerbil.

I can recommend pet tarantulas, I have three smile

Tarantulas use practically all of what they eat (mine like crickets, hate locusts). What they don't eat is turned into a tiny little white gooey blob, no bigger than a grain of rice and completely odourless.

If they happen to eject it onto the glass wall of their tank, it looks a bit like a tiny bird-poo, else the liquid evaporates and you're just left with a tiny white speck. Tarantulas only need their tanks cleaned out once per year.

They are the ultimate low-maintenance pets!

Of all the suggestions I thought I'd get, and therefore seriously consider, I never thought there'd be bloody spiders! I would rather run poo on my eyebrows that LOOK at a spider!!!!

Stick insects poo. And they're an insect so that's out.

What's that picture? A gnu?

londonrach Thu 19-Nov-15 15:25:49

Sorry op this is so funny...you got spider suggestions and a two headed lama. Doesnt a cute genie pig or hamster look good now even if it does poo. grin

It's a push me pull me, isn't it??

Whatever you do don't get a guinea pig. They are so fecking pointless curses own childhood.

HoneyDragon Thu 19-Nov-15 15:28:57

One of your DC will get a pet tape worm now just to make a point.

CatThiefKeith Thu 19-Nov-15 15:31:52

grin at tapeworm!

londonrach Thu 19-Nov-15 15:33:07

Tapeworm grin

Arfarfanarf Thu 19-Nov-15 15:37:01

grin
Its a push me pull you. The original dr doolittle.
I feel old now

HoneyDragon Thu 19-Nov-15 15:37:08

if the op was planning on using this thread for proof I'm in the shit aren't I?

HoneyDragon Thu 19-Nov-15 15:40:09

What about a Mayfly? They don't have mouths so surely can't poop. They only live a month a most so turnover would be high.

Perhaps there's a subscription service, mayflies monthly or something?

diddl Thu 19-Nov-15 15:43:14

Ah yes, push me pull you-I was nearly right!

CatThiefKeith Thu 19-Nov-15 15:44:32

Or a pet rock? I'm fairly sure they don't either.

Poor kids, get em a pet. Something low maintenance like a hamster?

Wagglebees Thu 19-Nov-15 15:46:05

I thought everyone knew what a Push-me-Pull-you was!

<so old>

MantaRayBay Thu 19-Nov-15 15:48:20

A genie pig? Does it grant wishes? Surely you'd put up with a bit of poo if you got free wishes. You could wish the poo away for starters.

Seeyounearertime Thu 19-Nov-15 15:56:38

Snakes.
They poop but not very much and it kind of dries and turns powdery, like dust I guess.
Or ferrets. Yes they poop but you can train them to do it in a Small corner tray that you simply empty.

Or a pet Furby? They just poo batteries.

Or, if your the 8 year old me, chickens, they poo eggs for tea. smile
