Hi, I'm thinking about getting a new pet and was looking for ideas of what to get. Myself and my OH are in the process of building our first house and will be looking to get a pet after we have moved in. We both work full time although come home for lunch. We will have a small/medium garden. We dont really mind how much the pet and cage (if needed) costs within reason. We are looking for something that is friendly and can be handled and cuddled etc! It doesn't have to be a small furry! Ideally I would like something a little unusual or exotic that doesnt need a cage! I have had rats before and although I love them I was after something a bit bigger and that has a longer life span. We were thinking maybe ferrets, chinchillas or something really different like a fennec fox! Any ideas?
