    I always wanted a ferret growing up. Do they really need a big house? Also don’t they shit everywhere? I had pet rats for years (some of the sweetest animals I’ve ever met), do ferrets treat the whole world like their personal toilet like rats do?

    I am so sorry for your loss anon <3 Please know that NDEs are real and prove that there is an afterlife and that your cat is enjoying paradise right now <3

    And NDEs are more real than this world, in every way. For instance, NDErs report expanded intelligence. One NDEr said that the greatest supergenius who ever lived, with the help of the greatest supercomputer of all time, would be immeasurably dwarfed by the intelligence she had access to while in the light, so much so that it would be closer and fairer to compare the intelligence of Einstein to that of an ant. Literally and seriously. And as another NDEr described their cognition during their life review:

    >"I looked up, and saw four translucent screens begin to appear - and form a kind of gigantic, cubed box all around me. It was through this method that I was shown my life review. Without ever having to turn my head, I panoramically saw my past, present, future - and there was even a screen behind me that displayed a tremendous amount of scientific data, numbers, symbols and universal codes. I was in complete amazement because (as all of this was occurring) I realized I understood absolutely everything I was seeing - even in the most microscopic detail! There seemed to be no limit to the thoughts I was able to think or the ideas I was able to absorb. In this space, what we tend to think of as a limited comprehension or single-mindedness here on Earth, becomes truly infinite and limitless here! I kept thinking over and over how true it is what they say: that when we go back home - we all really are of one mind!"

    From here: https://youtu.be/U00ibBGZp7o

    Another way NDEs are more real is how one NDEr said that he saw more than 80 new primary colors in the NDE world, compared to the 3 primary colors we have here.

    From here: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/mysteries-consciousness/202204/does-afterlife-obviously-exist

    So heaven is undeniably real.

    there's pretty much nothing that you can ethically keep that lines up with your requirements
    another anon said birds but they are a huge huge money & time sink and are impossible to ethically keep with the space you have (also, not furry)
    some anons are suggesting different small animals like guinea pigs etc but all those are going to have a much shorter lifespan than dogs or cats which i'm guessing is what's hurting you right now.
    this might just be a time in your life where you need a break from pets anon. i'm sorry about your cat, they're great animals, it's good that it lived a nice long life though.

    Similar situation. My issues is that I don't want something that will
    1) jump onto counters/tables
    2) get into my walls
    3) require a cage
    4) be primarily nocturnal (crepuscular is okay) or
    5) be particularly large

    So my option is probably skunk and that's it. My son wants a dog but that ain't happening, at least not until he's older and can take it for walks and clean its shit. I was thinking bunnies but he doesn't like how they look because they "have side eyes" rather than "face eyes."

    I own my house but it's among the smallest in my development, measuring 700ft2 for the first floor and 450ft2 each for the second and basement, and I've no room for expansion.

        He wants something furry.
        So do I, actually.
        His mother wants a bird, but I don't like the idea of caging the thing.
        No one wants a reptile or amphibian.

        Jumping spiders are furry, diurnal, don’t need much space, and aren’t rodents. Most smaller mammals that aren’t rodents usually require as much space as a ferret, if not more. Even small birds need a lot of space.

        >jump onto counters/tables
        Skunks can be pretty nice pets, but I wouldn’t count on them staying off your counters and tables if there is actually something they want up there.

        Guinea pigs have somewhat more forward-facing and less creepy eyes than rabbits. They’re a bit too filthy to be entirely “cageless” but any short barrier that’s about 8 to 12 inches tall is enough to contain them. I used to have one of those slightly sunken living rooms from the 60s as their cage.

        >Skunks can be pretty nice pets, but I wouldn’t count on them staying off your counters and tables if there is actually something they want up there.
        Yeah? I knew a girl with a skunk and the thing couldn't get up or down stairs, needing to be carried. It just lived on the first floor and they kept the basement door closed always because they have shit eyesight and it could just fall down the stairs and hurt itself.

        >Guinea pigs
        Yeah, I had a dozen of them as a kid. I'm

        >Guinea pig maybe, they're gonna WHEEK 24/7
        Mine only did when they heard things rustling or when my dad came home from work. One of them was obsessed with my dad and always wanted his attention and begged him to pick her up and shit.
        They were otherwise quiet.
        We kept them in a central part of the house with people constantly around do if they made noises, we'd definitely had heard them.

        He doesn't like them, either, especially not Abyssinian ones. I tried to push him towards guinea pigs but he simply wasn't a fan.
        He really likes how stoats look, especially when they turn ermine for the winter but I explained that they can't be pets and we're not getting a ferret

          My only experience with skunks is secondhand though my neighbor as a kid, but they definitely were capable of wedging themselves in a tight corner to use in climbing up the cabinets or pushing shorter stuff around to hop on top of to get to the table and higher counter. They didn’t bother if there wasn’t anything tasty up there, but they also had fallen off the same counter more than once.

          The fact is, you are a loser. No, you can not have big fancy pets. You can not have outdoor hobbies that are not allowed on other peoples land. You can not even work on your own car for thrift or for pleasure. And you may not be able to own more than one vehicle.

          The simple fact is, you are not a free man. This has nothing to do with politics, it's an apolitical fact, you are not a free man, and you are worse off than someone who owns land and a house in every single way.

          You are a slave. You can have fish, mice, rats, or caged birds. That's it.
