So we have the best pet. Her name is Betty. She feeds herself, poops everywhere, (but I don't have to clean it up), is totally self sufficient, and my kids love her. She is our housefly. Yes I have a housefly pet and I love her. Ask my kids about the fly flying around my house and they will be the ones to tell you that it is "Mom's pet Betty."
The joke started a few weeks ago when the kids were begging me for a dog. A fly happened to fly by and I simply told them that we already had a pet! I told the kids that the fly's name was Betty, and honestly they accepted that and have not bugged me since about getting a dog!
