We call that one Mua'dib

Ever watchful lest I relent and agree to a pet, the Girlfriend of the Flea is now angling for a Greater Egyptian Jerboa.

Or possibly a Long-eared Jerboa.

Maybe you could explain to her that rodents aren't pets, they are what pets eat.

More or less her exact words vis a vis regular mice. I am under the impression snakes smell so I am not entirely enthusiastic about the reptile option either.

Fish are relatively low-maintenance and don't generate a lot of smell, although they are not exactly demonstrative in their affections.

Yep. I once had the misfortune of having a housemate with a python, and without regular tank cleaning (usually the case!!) it would stink up the whole house.

A tarantula, perhaps? Or does that head into "trying too hard" goth territory?
