Over the last couple of months she has been begging and pleading for a pet, and here is my reply:
A. I don't want anything thing that barks, claws, poops, has hair, or needs my attention
B. Martin and I are both slightly allergic to dog and cat hair
C. Don't like the smell of pets in the house
and the list goes on.....
Naomi did some VERY extensive research and is very happy with the outcome. Guinea Pigs! With all of her money and some of mine we took the leap and got them. They live outside so no pet smell or hair all over, she takes care of them and they are even better than I thought they'd be!
The white and auburn one is named Scarlet and the brown short haired guy is named Schocolata, (Chocolate in German) he also answers to Tiger and Brownie.
