Don't beg and cry for one because that will just show them that you are not responsible and you will only beg for smoething you want. Trust me I have had 20 pets in my lifetime! By the way will this be your first pet or have you had pets before? It helps to know!

ANSWER #2 of 14

u could prove you're responsible. clean your room, if you have a pet pay attention 2 it, do your homework, do it without being asked. then when theyre in a good mood, ask then, tell them how responsible you r and you would feed it clean it play with it and all that stuff. tell them they dont have to answer right away let them think about it.

well I was having the same problem but what I did was research on them and I tried to impress her. she asked me like 50 questions and I knew them all. she did get impressed but then she thought I wouldnt take care of it so I did a lot of chores, dropping hints that I rea;;y wanted one, and saved up my money. I pretened to cry every night to where she got very annoyed. finally she said I could get one so I will be getting one very soon now! :D

ANSWER #10 of 14

Chinchillas are really hard work! ever have a bunny? Thats exactly what they are. BUt if your looking for a cuddly and fun-to-watch pet, I suggest the gerbil! they poop two times less than a chinchilla, dont smell far as bad, dont eat or drink as much, you only need to clean their cage once in two weeks ( for the chinchilla, probably 2 times a week) And they are fun to watch, and VERY social animals. plus, they dont like to bite! ITS A great package in a pet!
