I would like a pet skunk. Which I guess is essentially a rat in a fur coat. You can get them without the stink.
I think I want one just to scare people with. Not tell anyone we had one and then freak out when it waddled into the living room. That would bring me joy.
But, Kevin gives me Noisy face #5 when I mention it. And I would rather not think of the repercussions if Linus or Charlotte got the idea that skunks were to be played with.
