I love cats! My cat, Toby, plays fetch, greets me at the door every day, sleeps with me, and knows how to sit and roll over. Rats are awesome, too, but I've never had one, so I couldn't really know.

Need you ask?

Well, if you're set up for the sugar gliders and $$ isn't an issue I'd go for them. Then get the kitty a few years down the road if things are going well and $$ still isn't an issue.

Kitty! My friend's cat got into the parrots cage and fell asleep... she put the parrot in it without noticing the cat, and came back hours later to find the two of them 'talking' to eachother peacefully.

O_O Strange. I think I'd go for a cat if I were you, but it's personal preference.

I loved our sugargliders but they are just not for me they required a lot of work for how small they were. I would go with cat but that's just me.

ive just had so many bad experiences with cats...
the only cat ive ever felt attatced to was my old siamese (and i couldnt deal with the kind of demand of a siameses voice right now) and my grammies devon rex...if i was getting a kitten id either adopt one that "falls" into my lap, or id purposly search out a good devon rex breeder, i LOVE the rexes...*giggles*

If your looking for less of a lifetime commitment, I would go with rats .I love them to bits, They are the greatest little critters. I will NEVER be ratless. I do rodent rescue, so always have a bunch of rats in. I prefer male rats over female, they tend to bond better, and like being pet and kissed. Big squishy man rats are the best

Never had SGs and can;t anyway, they are illegal to own in California.
Calicoes and tortoiseshells are always female... >.>

Er, anyway. I say rats or cats. :P

Even though their life expectancy is short, I'd go with either rats or sugar gliders (though I don't know much them as they are illegal here). I love our cats, but I'm slowly becoming more of a dog person.

And cats are such an average pet... I'd break the mold and go for some of the unloved, or outlawed, animals out there.

well i contacted a woman whos rehoming her 6 month old male, i have the space and would love to eventually find him a frined if i got him, so we'll see if that goes anywhere...
theres also a rescue neerby that has a pair of female blue dumbo rats...so i droped them an email to find out more and if i can visit...


ive decided, if im getting a kitten im going to hold out and get a devon rex from a breeder or breed rescue, if one doesnt wander onto my doorstep before then...

for now i think im going to look into adopting an animal thats not as likely to find a home, gliders are so much work that most wont adopt one from a shelter or take on a young/adult, and rats are well rats, again not as likely to get adopted...so yeah i have cages to suit both, and the diet for eithers not an issue...

ill keep ya updated with pictures
