My mother and I lived in an apartment most of my childhood, so we never had pets. Honestly, I don’t even remember asking for one, but I enjoyed other people’s pets when the opportunity presented itself. It wasn’t until later after we moved into a house that I did get a pet, two actually. They were hermit crabs.
