Default Pets You Will and Will Not Own.....

The older I get, the more I whittle down the list of animals I'd like as pets. As a kid I would have taken any pet, but now I'm finding that I'm more picky. So what pets do you enjoy owning, or would like to try owning and what critters are a no-go?

Here is my list:

Willing to Own--
Dogs (duh-lol)
Horses (any equine really)
Small to medium sized parrots
Finches
Rabbits
Various poultry--everything from chickens to peacocks
Most kinds of fresh water fish
Cats
Hedgehogs


Would Not Own--
Reptiles
Creepy crawlies--tarantulas, scorpions, hermit crabs
Most non-rabbit rodents
Ferrets
Chinchillas
Cockatoos, toucans, or the very large Macaws
Pot bellied pig
Most non-avian exotics
Salt water fish

I'd own...

Dogs
Horses
Cats
Rats

Would definitely NOT own...

Ferrets
Rabbits
Birds
Most reptiles


Everything else is sorta inbetween. I haven't a terribly huge list on either side yet.

I don't count fish. They seem like more of a decoration or hobby to me than a pet. Like plants.

The only things I will absolutely not own are venomous animals

Oh, I wouldn't have a sugar glider either. We have a strict "one vagina per being" rule here.

Will own:
Dogs
Small Rodents
Small furry animals like bunnies and chinchillas
Birds

Will not own:
Cats
Monkeys *I know they aren't common pets but I have seen people own them. Honestly I know I may be weird but monkeys scare the crap out of me*
A lot of non interactive pets. I get if you like watching them but for me if I don't really interact with it i feels it's a lot of work for not enough payout... if that makes sense

Would: dogs & cats

Would not: most anything else. I've had almost everything else (well, the typicals) and I don't want to repeat that.

This. I've always wanted a sugar glider... then I watched Jessie's 2

There's really not much that I absolutely wouldn't own, though. Heck, I'd probably even own sugar gliders if I came upon one needing a home.

The only absolute definite I have are dogs and ferrets, and horses when I have land
