My girlfriend and I have wanted a pet for a while now, but cannot agree on what to get. First, let me say that we live in an attached condo, so there is no yard for our creature to run around in, it would basically be inside at all times unless we took it out somewhere with us. She wants the typical cat or dog, more specifically a Pomeranian 'cause "ooh! They're so cute and cuddly!!!". Her sister has one now and all it does is run around like Speedy Gonzales and **** and piss everywhere. Real Cute. You should see her carpet. Besides the obvious downside to a monster like that, I am allergic to pet dander (read: cats and dogs) so we might be better off with some other less common type of pet. I was thinking something more unique like an iguana. Our place is small enough so it could run around on its' own (no cage) once it was large enough - maybe 1+ ft long. I don't know too much about iguana's but I think it would be cool to have one. We haven't really considered anything else, but what other animals make good, relatively inexpensive pets?
