If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?

Any animal, fictional or real, wild or domestic. It would be guaranteed not to harm you or anyone close to you, and you would have the means to take care of it for the rest of its life.

Mine would be a grizzly bear. Bears are my favorite animal, because they can be both badass and adorable, sometimes at the same time. It would be awesome to be able to wrestle with a bear on a regular basis. Plus, ain't no one gonna fuck with a guy who has a bear guarding his house!

One day, I'd love a pet skunk. Our neighbors had one when I was growing up in Michigan, and she was really pretty sweet...about as tame as a cat, or a rabbit. Very independent. The skunk was de-scented, and had only a very faint odor, nothing that you'd really notice.

There's a festival each year in Ohio (Skunkfest), for skunk lovers, and pet skunk enthusiasts; many are bred in captivity, and have been slightly domesticated. Still, they are wild animals, and a person is going to have to learn to put up with a certain amount of untamed mischief. But I'd only get one if I had the right place to keep one, and the time.

Also, it'd be really fun to see the reactions of people who didn't know you had one about!

Ferrets. No contest. At least three.

Foxes are apparently fairly domesticable, but they are rather high-maintenance beasties and having a dog that eats furniture and steals kitchen utensils has been enough of an adventure. Maybe if I had a large enclosed space, like a really big walled garden, I'd go for it, but I'm not so sure.


A kinkajou! I held and played with one at a pet expo and it was really cool. But right not I'm stuck in an apartment complex and I don't think the apartment manager would like it very much if I had a kinkajou in there. I don't think a kinkajou would appreciate living in an apartment either.
