Mine is either guinea pigs or ferrets but I would never want a ferret! (They really stink!) http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/wink.gif Just kidding!

Hey all. My favorite are guinea pigs and gerbils (I also love rats!). I honestly don't think a ferret can qualify as a rodent, they have canines and inscissors (like a dog or cat), I have been bitten by enough of them to know! But I may be wrong.

I don't think ferrets are rodents either, but I could be wrong too http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif If they are rodents, they are my definate favorite. I have wanted one so bad for so long. When I was about to get one, Shiloh came into my life and the chance hasn't come up again.

I also love rats. The boys I babysit for had my favorite rat ever. As soon as I got to their house every time, I'd go get Freckles and he'd ride around on my shoulder all evening.

Ferrets are in the weasel family. I think they are all cute (including the ferrets) but I have never owned any. I have pet sitted (sat?) for a chinchilla and a guinea pig, though, and adored them both.

my favorite rodent is the chinchilla. though i never liked ferrets, i'd have to make a single exception for my mostest favoritest single rodent in the whole wide world... my neighbor's ferret sandy. i didn't like ferrets, she didn't like most people, but yet we set that aside and bonded. i became one of five people she actually liked and one of three that she'd "coo" to.

factoid. true but strage...cats are actually rodents.

My favorites would have to be guinea pigs and hamsters. The rodents with the long tails give me the creeps. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

I have to say that guinea pigs just melt my heart... Are hedgehogs rodents? If so, I like those, too.

mice are the best! they are easily trainable and they like to be held and to ride on my shoulder. I own seven of them with more on the way posssibly to be born today!

Right, they are weasels! (See my same message a few posts up.) So are minks, sea otters, wolverines, badgers and even SKUNKS! By the way, I think they are ALL cute! I have always loved weasels!

I love anything that doesn't have a long tail, so that takes out mice, rats and gerbils for me. I think guinea pigs are nice, but "high maintenance", so I'll stick with Hamsters!
