>>2071547 I know they sell odor control litter for cats but I don't know how well it works. I have ferrets and a daily cleaning is usually enough. If it starts to smell, I can clean the cage, litter box, or do a deep clean of the plastic carpet runners I put under the cage and litterbox. After that it never smells. If you're still having issues after that, I know they sell cage sprays/deodorizers.
>>2071547 Cats usually aren't all that hard to deal with. Just odor control litter and a litter mat should be enough. For ferrets, you're going to have to clean daily, even then they still smell pretty bad. Rats are better, easier, and less smelly, but you still definitely have to clean weekly. I think rats are the best middle ground for easy, affectionate, cheap pet. Pretty much any dog or cat will do if you're not interested in small animals. Since noise is a concern for dogs, I'd make absolutely sure you get a well-bred and well socialized dog. Depending on how much time you have to actually play with them, since you work from home, you can get pretty much anything that's fine with small spaces regardless of energy level.
ferrets smell with their bodies, cats not so much (at least not as far as I've experienced). you will always smell the poop of any animal that you don't take outside to poop. But for cats at least, there is indoor cat food that greatly reduces the smell of their poop
DOG - If you're home a lot dogs are the best. Breeds that don't shed are ideal. Dogs are also a great excuse to get out of the house for walks and socializing.
CAT - If you're at work/school most of the day cats tend to be quiet and have the litter box for their bathroom needs.
FERRET - If you plan on caging your pet all day then cats and dogs will be unhappy. Ferrets need to be caged or they'll poop-mark your walls. They're also pretty bipolar which can be funny when they're happy, and not so much when they're down. They need to be de-scented which will be an added vet cost. They also must be neutered, especially females since when they go into heat their genitals puff inside out and stay that way until they are mated. In that condition they are very prone to injury and infection. Picture for educational purposes.
The ideal caged pet is a RAT. They're smart, trainable, and don't smell anywhere near as much as a ferret or a cat's litter box.
>>2072621 >cats are good if you don't want to train an animal
WOAH BUDDY, don't go 'round givin people the wrong impression now. You want a little beasty that spent five minutes in the litterbox to jump on your counters where you prepare food? What about bitin your ankles whenever you happen to walk by your bed?
>>2071547 When I lived in a bachelor during university my trick for litterbox management was to put the litter box directly by the front door so everyone was immediately blasted by the smell and knew what they were getting into if they entered.
Still managed to pull vagina somehow.
