    If you know a neighbour that works and has a dog, you could offer to drop in and pet the dog and take for a short walk etc. Your little one still gets to interact with a dog and share in the responsibility of caring for a pet without the commitment on your behalf.

    Totally not the same as having a pet but just an idea!

    Any animal can be low maintenance if you want them to be, but they'll probably be miserable.

    I could leave my bunny outside in a hutch every day and pat her once or twice a week but I bet she wouldn't give me the kisses and cuddles that she gives me now if I did.

    Not saying they have to be indoor animals of course. But if they're outside, they're easier to forget.

    I agree RR.

    You can technically keep a bird in a tiny cage and do nothing but feed them and clean their cage... But they're a lot happier like this...

    All of them get let out daily... And that mess in their cage is 2 days old... Lol! They are very messy creatures and require lots of cleaning!

    Aww.. She is so cute! Makes me wish i wasn't so horribly allergic to rabbits.
    Although with 4 ferrets they probably aren't a good choice of pet anyway..lol

    Sorry mama, I wasn't implying that's what you did.

    I was just saying that I think a lot of people think rabbits are low maintenance when I've learnt since having Betsy that she is probably more work than my folks dog is.

    And it makes me sad because I had outdoor rabbits that I can see now weren't treated the way the deserved to be by me as kid, and so I think unless an adult is also invested in having a rabbit as a pet, they're not a great choice for kids only.

    Those who have chickens, can you have them with pet cats?

    Rainbow Road, that has made me miss my indoor rabbit soo much. We had to move in with friends and they didnt want him indoors so he had to go outside...poor darling I ended up giving him to a friend of mine who let him free roam in her house and backyard all day and hutched him at night. Made me feel much better but I miss him soo much. Ive just told DP when our cats pass Im getting another indoor rabbit
