    According to my college website & the residence hall handbook, i am allowed to keep a pet in my dorm as long as 1. They are contained in a cage/aquarium 2. They don't have strong odors 3. They are in good health What are some pets that fit into that criteria, i was thinking of a pet mouse (i've had a pet mouse before) because they do kinda fit it, i never experienced my entire room smelling bad because of my pet mouse, but i'm not sure if my college will agree with me on that.

  • When someone's pet dies, isn't buying another pet of the same type of animal kind of a dick move? Like an "insult to their memory"?

    or something like that? Am I overthinking this? If your kid died, wouldn't having a new one, just for the sake of having a new one, an insult to the former kid's memory? If not, wtf exactly is?

  • One reason there are so many unwanted pets is because landlords/apartments are able to ban them?

    Best answer: True. It's not only landlords. I have a place in a condo and I can't have pets because of some stupid policy. It's my place. I bought it so why can't I have a pet.

    This sounds like an odd question, I guess. I'm not going to tell you my ENTIRE life story but I will tell you some of it... I'm almost 18 years old and I'm planning on getting a job once I turn 18. But here's the thing... I have major depressive disorder, and what helps me get through it is all of my pets. I have a couple of ferrets, two hamsters, a hedgehog, and a cat. What is the best kind of job that I can get with all of my pets that will still get me a living? I'm currently in home school so my schedule is pretty much completely open which is one reason why I have so many pets. Also I still need to be able to take care of all of my pets with the job that I get... Does anybody have any tips for really anything in this question about like how to deal with depression, how to have a ton of pets and a job, how can i make a living with a ton of pets, etc, etc, etc......

  • Is it ethical/okay to take a veterinary course that uses dead animal to test on?

    I want to become a vet or a veterinary nurse but the only courses available use dead animal to test on, I'm a vegan and I don't agree with the use of animals in this way but it's also the only way I could become a vet/nurse. Is it worth it? What do you think?

  • Are you afraid of bats ?

    Best answer: Their erratic flight, especially indoors, can have people anxious. I can assure you though,the bat will not harm you in any way. It wants out more than you welcome the bat.

    Best answer: Their erratic flight, especially indoors, can have people anxious. I can assure you though,the bat will not harm you in any way. It wants out more than you welcome the bat.
    Best thing you can do is remain calm an not frighten the bat more than it is. When it lands, it may try to roost, then a matter of catching it in a small box and piece of cardboard and release outside. The longer it flies indoors, the greater risk to the bat sustaining injury. Don't try swatting at the bat with a towel etc.
    Bats are just not offensive animals at all, but they can bite if mishandled or grabbed in hands.

    If the bat grounds itself, you can use a thick towel and gently wrap the bat and take it outside.
    Unfold the towel,and the bat will soon take flight, if not, you can pin the towel to like a clothsline and the bat will leave in time.
    I rare event you should get a bite, capture the bat so it can be tested for rabies.
    No you don't get rabies just having a bat in your house.
    No, I don't fear bats at all, they are one of my favorite animals, been up close and personal with many.
    Please don't handle bats with your bare hands, for your safety as well as the bats.

  • Why are there so many idiots out there breeding animals?

    Best answer: Because they don't care or don't know better. My aunt and uncle piss me off. They get animals from pet stores even though they know (and even joke about it) that they are supporting mills. The reason they get animals from pet stores is because they might want to breed them and need the animals intact.... show more

    I would really like to know people's advice and suggestions such as pets for people (like me) who just like it when an animal sits in your lap and sleeps all or most of the time without getting rowdy or jumpy or bored. I've done some research and so far I'm looking at a chinchilla or a hedgehog, however chinchillas are kind of rowdy and hyper but hedgehogs sleep a lot and are boring pets which I like, because I want a pet that can sit with me for a few hours while I play my PC or do homework and other things like watch tv. Any suggestions on other pets? I have a cat already but he sleeps with me, so I'm mostly looking for animals that stay with you during the day (Yes I'm an animal lover).
