What was/will be your child's first pet?

When my niece was 4, I thought it was time for her to have her own little pet that she cared for herself. So we went to the store, and she picked a rat. There were 3 rats in the cage... I was okay with a rat.. but then, while standing in line...

"Auntie... this rat will get lonely without her sisters..." Okay, should we get two? "YES!"...get into line again...

"Auntie... the one that's left in the cage will be lonely..."... sigh... we left the store with 3 rats.

What was/will be your childs first pet? I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with the old faithful when the time comes... a fish.

What about you?
