What do you do if you askk your parents to let you buy a guinea pig and they keep saying no?
This is hard to take when you really want a pet. You can show them that you can be responsible. Ask them to try out a live plant for awhile to show them you can take care of a live thing. Get a live plant and take care of it for a decided amount of time and that will show your parents you can be responsible for a live animal.
