That is entirely the point. I was feeling depressed so I started looking up lemurs and then didn't feel quite so depressed any more.

One of my friends and I have been arguing on and off for awhile about his racism against the french (except it's not really racism because the french aren't a race, but whatever), and yesterday I said that I would respond to the next person who asked me if I was racist with "well, of course! I don't think gorillas are smart enough to understand the current human sociopolitical structure, so I believe they shouldn't have voting rights" and he said "but gorilla could be interpreted as a racial slur for black people, like chimp". Confused, I said, "so, what about orangutans?" and he said that was better. "Gibbons?" Much better. "Oo, what about lemurs?" and he said "Best. No one ever tried to insult someone by calling them a lemur."

Wow. Those things are....not so cute. They scare me a teensy bit.

I just found out today that lemurs and tarsiers are both primates. I thought they were some sort of rodent. haha. Thank you, Internet.

Here is another primate....I think this little guy is freaking adorable.


Aww, hello little marmoset.

I hate ferrets :( My mom tells a story about having a guinea pig and a ferret as a kid. The ferret got out and ate the face off the guinea pig.

I love guinea pigs more than anything in the world and I was five when she told me that story. I was horrified for life.

I love Hedgehogs, however. Also, hamsters. Because we used to feed our hamsters meal worms. Cool. as. shit.

Yeah, I feel the same way about one of my guy friends.

On a side note: I totally just bought a bunch of cat toys. Like, an unreasonable number of cat toys. And I bought them because my dad wouldn't let me buy a guinea pig. So I was like "ha, I can still spend unreasonable amounts of money on an animal.". Because I have a cat. And she hates me.

Aw, I love guinea pigs. Mom always complained, but I know she got a kick out of them too.

Example - We had just gotten a new little girl the night before. I got up uber early due to the bladder, and wandered into the kitchen.

Mom - "Did you name the new pig yet?"

Me, groggily - "Noooo... why?"

Mom - "How about we call her 'Little Shit'?"

Me - "Uh... okay. I'm going back to bed."

And from then on, she was dubbed Little Shit.

In my experience the main reason for children to have guinea pigs is to learn about sudden unexpected death.

My guinea pig lived for 8 years. I am led to understand this is...unusual? Dude had ass tumors at one point, too. Got it removed. And then he was like "cool, thanks, bro. Gonna live FOREVER NOW". Then my best friend found him dead and I was sad.

My dad accidentally killed my brother's hamster when he was 7 and I was 3 and my other brother was 4. It was traumatizing. We knew what death was, because we had hella animals. But, my dad killed it by brutal crushing it by diving to try to catch it as it ran by.

Iguanas are chill.

Older cats hate  kittens.  They remind them of the fleeting nature of popularity. 


More importatly, when the kittens reach young adulthood, they start beating up the older cats, stealing their toys and treats, usurping their place at the food dish, etc.  It's weird. 

(we have 4 cats, one 15, one's 14, one's 3 and the last is 2, and it's really weird watching how the younger ones gang up on the older ones)

I like your reasoning, and it probably helps explain why the two cats don't get along. The younger early on started pouncing on the older, and he seemed dominant. For a while. Now, I think she's re-established dominance.

The last time the neighbours had a litter of kittens, one of them came wandering over to our house. Our own cat was looking at it like it was demon spawn.

Also, I had a dwarf hamster once. I went to the vet with it because of a weird lump on its ear. They decided to give it an injection for something, which cost twelve-year-old me €25. Then the incompetent shit of an assistant put it right into its lung. The hamster died of suffocation later that day. I now distrust veterinary medicine even more than I distrust human medicine.

We have three cats. Two are my mom's. One is mine. Mine lives indoors and whenever she gets scared, which is often, she runs to me for comfort. Then slaps me in the face if I pick her up. She was a stray we brought in about 10 years ago. Shes about 12 or so. Albert is also 12. He was born here, so we've had him a while. Then, little Alvin is 3. He was born here, also, and immediately started picking on Albert for his rightful place as king. He tried picking on Emma, my cat, and she smacked him so hard he runs from her.

My dad won't let me get anymore pets. Especially not kittens. He hates kittens. And cats. and my happiness.

Zingoleb- You crack me up, seriously. Although, for the record, when I was about 10, we used to have a creek running next to our house. My guinea pig and I were chilling outside and he made a mad break for the creek. I think he was trying to kill himself.

My friends do the same thing. Maybe, when exposed to me, animals feel too much joy and just can't handle it...

Ferrets are really freaking cool, but I just can't get over the stink. A friend of mine had one and...urrfghhhhh..


I'm starting to think that all rodents are just little poop machines. My 2 guinea pigs are as well. Once during floor time we calculated that each of them poops once every three minutes*.

Wild hedgehogs, no. As far as I know, its illegal to keep a wild animal as a pet (Depending on the locality). You could have an Africa Pygmy Hedgehog (or domesticated hedgehogs as they're commonly known) as a pet.

Just a few things about them though;
  • The don't hibernate, but prefer warm temperatures (roughly 27C or 72F).
  • They can be fed a high quality High Protein/Low Fat cat food. Treats can be cooked, unseasoned meat, mealworms or fruits and vegetables.
  • You really can't have any other pets if you have a APH, either larger pets accidently kill them, or they check out the hedgehog and get pricked by the quills.
  • You can use a hamster cage sans the plastic tunnels, but they do benefit from a larger cage, which will put you back a couple hundred dollars/euros, especially to keep it warm. Bear in mind as well that the little guys do like to travel about at night and can become depressed if kept in too small a cage.
  • They are prone to several diseases and illnesses, such as cancer and Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome (This isn't a joke, it is very similar to Multiple Sclerosis in humans, and it will lead to the animal being unable to control its own body)
  • They are also allergic to wood oils, so avoid using wood chips as bedding.
  • They are great if you're allergic to cats and dogs, because they produce next to no dander, and are often allowed in buildings where you can't have pets.

Cousin had one as a kid, and she liked it. Poor thing ended up needing to be put down for WHS though.
