How on Earth do you convince your mom to get a pet?

I've made a lot of deals with my dad to get a kitten, but my mom won't give in. I think it's either cause she's scared or some allergy that doesn't trigger when she's around my neighbor's kitten. So, lately, I've been thinking about getting a caged pet. And, before I mess everything up, I am going to ask you folk. I've checked all those "Ways to Get Your Parents to Get You a Pet", but my mom doesn't belong to any of those categories.
Please, please, please, help! I'm so desperate!

except, obviously, for a cat. And some of the things won't apply (walking it, picking up poop, etc.) but the general idea still applies.

I used these to convince my parents:

-learn alot about the animal you want and tell them different facts about it at different times (they will feel like you really want it)
-say how it is taken care of or show in a presentation and you will take part in the care of it
-tell them the pros of the animal but don't leave out the cons because it will seem like you are hiding something
-if it is an expensive animal say you will pay for it (ONLY IF YOU CAN)
-calculate the price it will be to gather the beginning supplies (like a cage,wheel,etc.)
-figure out where everything will be stored and tell them
