I react to pretty much all critters with hair or feathers. I can't last more than a few minutes in a house with cats (require loads of meds, caffeine, and an open window). And some folks are allergic to pot-bellied pigs. Explore a bit, though. You may find something which works for you.

I've always heard dogs (for the most part) are more social and are therefore more prone to depression if they're left alone a lot.
