Both. I like having company, but I also need to be free of unnecessary obligations and I want to be able to be completely ridiculous sometimes. So if I have to live alone, I'd rather live alone with a pet. I thought about getting a dog one day, but one that doesn't smell bad, doesn't need to be put in bath every day, doesn't pee everywhere and is a little modest about greeting me (so doesn't hump me right when I come home). That would be a dog that's practically kind of like a cat that needs to be walked every day and can learn tricks. If someone invented something like a catdog, I'd definitely be interested. And if I had to live with roommates, I'd want roommates who don't make useless schedules for me and don't get mad when I walk around the house naked.
If you could cross two species of animals and keep that hybrid as a pet, what hybrid would you make?
