    Thinking about getting a goat. They get about as big as a large dog.

    In all seriousness, I would be pretty hesitant myself about adopting a goat as a pet in an apartment situation.

    I've never owned a goat myself, but I simply imagine they need (or, at least, would really prefer) to have a sizeable plot of land to frolic around in.

    Also, one thing I will warn you about regarding new pet ownership in general, and especially when it is a more obscure pet (not the traditional cat or dog scenario), you may also want to consider just how much noise they might potentially make.

    One night, over a decade ago, after some heavy drinking and a bit of MDMA usage with a few friends, one of them finds a duck and decides to bring it back to my place. The thing simply would not shut up all night, and it not only kept me up, but I also got some major complaints from my landlord the next morning (it was a basement suite).

    You are absolutely right.

    They're very environmentally friendly. You basically get a garbage disposal unit.
