Does it rapidly go from a smiley to a frown face back and forth as you're porking it? Would be hilarious honestly.

I've got a tortoise and he's awesome. We let him scoot around the apartment pretty much every day.

I had a blue tongue skink and she was fantastic. Great little kiddo. A reptile that snuggles. I really miss her. They're super chill, and she loved to nestle in our hoodies.

Get a fish but let it freerange around the house so it's not in a water tank all day.

Leopard gecko might be up your alley but them salmonellas.

You might try a rabbit as well. They can be litter trained and they are surprisingly smart. You can also eat it if you get tired of it.

Good thinking right there. If it gets uppity, threaten it with a sauce pot rather than a rolled up newspaper.

Gravy packets. You threaten rabbits with gravy packets.

I'm personally a huge fan of rats. If you buy females, you can expect them to be docile and sweet all day long and probably never to bite anyone their whole lives. They don't really smell, and the maintenance costs are very low. Don't buy albinos, though; they're inbred and sorta weird in the head!

Rats are intelligent, sweet, and full of personality. They can tell people apart, and they'll have preferences based on how nice you are to them and how much you interact with them and stuff. Very low maintenance and cheap too.

Alright. Roll with me, here: What do you think about rats? Don't give me that look! F'real. We're not talking sewer rats. We're talking those white spotted ones you see in pet stores. I had several when I was younger, and they are truly some of the best pets you can own. They clean themselves pretty obsessively, believe it or not, and you can actually potty train them to an extent. They'll happily sit in the cage when you don't want to handle them, and you can load them up into a hoodie pocket or even just carry them on your shoulder whenever you want to go out. I used to take mine to school, lol, and she'd sit in the hood and just sleep most of the day.

They're just smart as hell, too. My first one, Kelpie, I got from a friend who bred hers. She would, somehow I never found out, get out of a locked wire cage once or twice a week, again SOMEHOW ,whether by leaping or falling, get down 4 feet from my dresser to bed, climb up and sleep on my chest. Scary as all get out, the first time you wake up and see that, lol. I smacked her across the room a couple times. I had her trained a bit with voice commands, she knew simple things like "yes' 'no' and 'left/right', but others like stay just wouldn't happen.

The only problem is: you don't really want a 'first gen' rat, straight from the pet store. Those guys tend to be nervous assholes, cause they don't really get any human contact. What you need, are the second or even better third gen rats. It's tough to handle second gen while they're young, cause the parents are more nervous and protective and don't like you handling them. Third gen, the parents have been with you their whole lives, and should trust you if you've been handling them a bit. They'll let you handle the babies younger, so they'll be more used to you in the future. Domestication is cool shit, lol.

So, that being said, you'll either need to be prepared to spend, like, a couple months breeding rats (most of which the pet store will usually happily take off your hands if you give them for free) until you find a couple that you bond with enough to keep OR you might be able to find a local breeder/friend who can help you out.

Females are best, they aren't as aggressive and won't fight each other which is good because you honestly should have at least 2. Rats are highly social, they need somebody to interact with on their level when you're not handling them.

I hope you find something you like, at any rate. Any more rat related questions, I'll be more than happy to try and field. Cheers!
