Of course, I will find out what to do if I don't want it, anymore. I just found they live for 30 years, and I'm not surprised.

Bad enough we are subjected to YOU. No animal should be.

I came. I saw. I blew your lungs out past your backbone. Thanks for the target practice.

I know, my hamster was funny.

Re: Should I get a pet?

The best advice is to start off with a house plant. Do you have any? Have you been successful with them in the past?

If you've been able to nourish a plant and sustain it for a good length of time, I bet you'd have lots of love to give to an animal.

Re: Should I get a pet?

I thought of that, too.

Re: Should I get a pet?

You just got rid of your hamster because of your unsettled life. Is this really the best time to be getting another pet?

Re: Should I get a pet?

I don't think the hamster would be allowed in a group home, otherwise I would keep her. Yea, they live in water, and some people have big aquariums. I might only be able to fit sea monkeys.

Re: Should I get a pet?

Looks like a hermit crab to me, Christina? I had some of those when I was a kid. None of them ever lived for very long though. Though under ideal conditions, they might.

You have to keep a variety of spare shells around, so as they molt, they can move into a bigger home. I’ve seen them use some wacky stuff, when it’s all they had.

Here’s one that used a dolls head. That’s the sorta stuff that could haunt a little girls dreams well into adulthood :D

Re: Should I get a pet?

Yea, I just learned that, too. Interesting picture. I have to be able to provide for it if I get it. At least, it won't bite me if I try to clean the cage, like when I had a hamster.

Yikes. I didn’t know that. I thought the hamster only tried to nip you when you picked her up. The crabs are slow moving, so you won’t have to worry about that. I don’t think they need much water. They do need something like a little miniature pond, in order to hydrate, but I don’t think it’s much. They mostly spend their time on land.

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

It helps if one doesn't squeeze them.

Re: Should I get a pet?

Aren't you moving to a group home? Would they even allow a pet? I agree with whoever said get a plant. Maybe get a bunch of little succulent plants. They're kinda cool and they're hard to kill.

Re: Should I get a pet?

Good idea. A plant might be healthy during the pandemic.

Re: Should I get a pet?

People have already suggested that you try taking care of a plant. Try a Snake Plant.



They are beautiful and very easy to maintain! Plant's are wonderful living things. They are great for the environment. They will add beauty to your room when you move. Please consider this.
