    Moving into a house next year, I would really like a pet, been wanting one for a LONG time but... mum can't stand them :>

    Any ideas? Something low maintenance but likes a good stroking everything now and again! No cats or dogs as per the landlords orders

    Rats make nice pets if you can stand the smell, although it isn't as bad as people make out as they tend to be quite clean. They're very intelligent animals and better than any hamster.

    Rats make superb pets They're so sweet and very intelligent, and MUCH cleaner than hamsters and mice. They also really don't smell, provided you clean the cage properly, particularly if you get females (which is recommended).

    I really wouldn't recommend getting a pet at all in your student years, but if you must get one, something small and manageable like a hamster or goldfish would be best.

    Fish, geckos, lizards, spiders, hamsters, etc. You want a pet that is fine on it's own for a while and doesn't take up too much space whilst not producing much mess.

      I'd check if your Landlord allows pets 1st. Then either a rodent or fish would be a good bet. Rats are amazing to have
