    what breed?
    Husky, Alsatian, Beagle, Spaniel, Shibe are all cool, I like medium sized dogs, sausage dogs are an interesting novelty.

    In terms of being interesting to interact with, maintenance costs, and just general fluffiness.
    Interesting question. Lot of cat love n these forums. If i had a choice it would be cats. 2-3.

    I think you bond more deeply with dogs but they are way higher maintenance.

    1/5 - Apply yourself

    Husky, Malamute, Tibetan Mastifs and Havanese are the only cool dogs.
    The problem other then dogs being begs, is that they stink. I've never been to a dog owner's house that didn't stink.

    I have a soft spot for those, because my mate's Havanese was a pretty cool dog.

    Cats are also cheap to keep. I have 4 and I spent about £10/15 a week on food for them - if you only have one cat then it'll be a lot less but £15 isn't too steep either. Cat litter is very cheap too and a big bag lasts for weeks. To save more money on the litter front, you can always train your cat to use the human toilet with a special toilet seat called The Litter Kwitter. Two of my cats are now human toilet trained :teehee:
    Omg, I can imagine me telling my daddy about this. I think he would cry at the thought of our two cats human toilet trained :rofl:

    I was going to say cat but since everyone has said it i'm going to go with a bird.

    You can train them to sit on you and teach them tricks, fairly cheap and their food doesn't cost much plus you can give them fresh fruit and veggies. Plus they're so cute with they're small

    they grow too quickly, so you have to buy a big tank to give them space, plus you have to clean the algae off them every so often

    Cats are the best hands down. They catch and eat any spiders, flies, mice, anything else creepy and crawly that you wouldn't want around.
    Um. My dog does all that and more..

    I'll take your word for it. They aren't exactly playful or good company either.

    Cats if you're looking for fluffy and companionship.

    My favourite non-fluffy pet is a fish. I've around forty currently between guppies, mollies, bettas, tetras, and catfish. My favourites are male Betta splendens. I keep five in my bedroom and they are gorgeous and have so much personality. 🐠
