A couple of entries back? when I said think of the bunnies? There are two at the local pet store and I suddenly Want a Rabbit.
I had one for a while -- a mentally negligible number (named Bertie of course). It didn't require much to keep it entertained and happy, and its nose action alone was worth the price of bunny chunks.
The husband has announced that a kitten is out. And no puppies. He stamped his little foot about it.
But more furry things in this house would be good. The mice that are moving in for the winter don't count because I rarely spot them.
