 When DD was born we had 2 cats, a guinea pig, and a fish. No issues. :)

I would be careful with the ferret because they can sometimes be snippy & lose patience quick.

That's all a personal preference thing. I've had cats and dogs when I had the girls.

Personally, I think if you don't have any pets now, don't get any until; your child is 5 or 6. Littles ones can be very demanind of your time and money, as can animals. Trust me, I know first hand. I had a dog and three cats when my twins were born. It was rough. My animals lost out on a lot of attention for a while there.

 I firmly believe puppies + babies do not mix. 90% of the time the people become overwhelmed or don't have the time to potty train and get rid of them.

Kittens are good :) We had a kitten when our oldest was very small. They are best friends.

and turtles can carry salmanilla (sp?) so be very very careful with them
