With the recent surge in pod living has come the need to accommodate some of our four-legged friends in increasingly tighter spaces. And, while inviting your rat Cheesy into your bunk might present fewer issues than that dude who wants you to step over his bullmastiff every day on your way to the frozen yogurt stand, many so-called traditional pets are finding pod spaces painfully untenable.
Enter genetically-modified organisms. The miracles of modern science have paved the way for all sorts of modifications to be made in the selection of pets we have to rule over. So, even if/though you can’t control your own life, science lets you control the lives of just about any of man’s best friends — from the tiniest crustacean/bacteria hybrid to the elephant-rhinos lodging on the grounds of Jumbo Pods & Chili Fries in Galveston, TX.

Quite the chimera, this favorite among Satanists is compact, independent and full of character.
The already associated pair were an obvious match — first for safety, then for the added benefit of edibility. Yum!
Again, an existing association yielded space-saving results: when you’re done playing, just lay him out for the night!
The popularity of turtle chairs made this one inevitable. Often coupled with sofahippos in roomier settings, chairturtles come in red, green and yellow, with blue and pink units soon to come!
