    Need help with picking an animal

    I am a student at a trade school and my class is an animal science class. We currently have two dogs, three rabbits, and a cat that stay in the class that we use for various thing. We have the chance to get a new animal, but we have to adhere to certain rules. 1. They have to be able to stay for the weekend without any care. 2. They can't have any strong odors (So no ferrets sadly.) 3. Nothing that would be dangerous for us to have. We have a kennel room and have plenty of space to put more cages. If anything comes to mind please let me know!

    Welcome to the forum. I don't agree with animals being locked up over the weekend without any care at all - especially dogs and cats, who need plenty of exercise. Your trade school should amend its rules so that animal welfare is priority. As for a suggestion for an animal which could be left unattended, I would think a snake would be the best idea. But even that is a little risky, say if the heating fails during the weekend....

    Re: Need help with picking an animal

    The reason we have to leave it for the weekend is because our teacher isn't allowed to go in during the weekend to provide upkeep. I forgot to mention that the dogs actually go home with her for the weekend since they are her dogs. The cat and the rabbits stay for the weekend though. Once we get a holiday break they will be taken home as well. Since the cat has to stay for the weekend, is there anything we can do it make sure it gets enough exercise?

    I'm glad that the dogs go home at the weekend. Could some arrangement not be made for the cat to be taken home by someone? If it is possible for holidays, could it not be arranged for the weekends, too? Every best wish for your studies!
