This is mostly just a fun thread but I am also curious because I will be moving to an apartment this summer prior to beginning vet school. Most all of the apartment complexes available to vet students allow pets. I would love to eventually get a dog or a cat but I know I won't have time for one during my first year. I currently have a crested gecko and a betta fish. Both have been perfect pets throughout undergrad. Now I don't have to hide my pets for inspections though so I can go with something more conspicuous. I won't be jumping into anything anytime soon but I am having fun imagining and researching. I have a really nice ferret cage that I could use. I would also love to establish a fishtank. Some pets I have thought of are rats (I've heard they can be smelly though), hedgehogs, or a veiled chameleon (I have wanted one forever despite the fact I know they can be tricky to keep) What have you kept in an apartment? What other interesting pets have you kept?
