Do animals help you relax?
I'm considering getting a couple of hamsters, gerbils or guinea pigs to have something else that's alive in the house.
I don't want a cat (don't ask) and a dog would take too much time. Goldfish die on me rather rapidly as I can't seem to get the water or the feeding right. So it has to be one of the above. Unless you have a better idea.
What do you think?
