which rodent best for me?
i've been trying to decide which rodent is best for me, besides syrian hamsters, because i already have one. i may be getting another rodent in the near future along with my current hamster, so i need some help. anyway, i'm fine with keeping more than one animal. i have a limited budget. i can't drive myself to the vet. i prefer the smaller animals. i really need something that is friendly, first of all, and not intimidating. by intimidating, i mean something that has a VERY hard bite. like rats. i know they are least likely to bite, but then every once in a blue moon when it does bite, i won't be prepared for the pain. if i get something that bites all the time, but not very hard, i will get used to it. anyway, the appearance to me doesn't matter very much. i need something that i can get away with cleaning the cage once a week, sometimes i might be late a day, i can't have the cage smelling really bad after only 8 or 9 days. i'd really like something that comes in more colors than it's natural color, like agouti. i need something that can fit in a cage the size of a 15 gallon tank at most, not necessarily an actual 15 gallon tank, but the size of one. and i think that's it, please reply, thanks.
