Most Helpful Girl
My family has always had dogs. And when I was around 10, we got rabbits. Over the years we've had or have hamsters, gerbils, dogs, cats, fish, and a horse.
I personally own 2 rats in my college apartment. They're my first pair, and in a year or two more or a small dog or cat would be a nice addition if they weren't too interested in rats, haha.
