Whats the perfect pet?

We are thinking about getting another pet we have two cats but they are inside outside cats, they have a cat door and we don't see them much. They spend most of the time sleeping or hunting. So we are thinking about maybe getting a puppy or a couple of love birds maybe something more exotic like a ferret, skunk or chinchilla, what does everyone think. My son is 11 months so I want it to be something he can enjoy too, Or am I crazy and should just stick to my independt cats??

  • Well if you get a ferret beware if you have cats coming in and out of your house do to the intestinal parasites, upper Resp Infections ferrets are VERY sensitive and catch everything including if your sick they can get very sicks. I had 4 ferrets. Birds are the same way! If you get a puppy make sure your cats that are indoor/outdoor are on flea preventative because the will give your puppy fleas and tapeworms.
    I have a house full of animals I want to save them all. Lol
