Pets are fantastic and would always stick with you through thick and thin. I remembered my first trip to a pet shop, and you could imagine how wide my eyes went when I saw different animals. I couldn’t choose because I thought every one of them was perfect. But then again, my parents still had the final say.
Selecting a pet is something to be considered as a life-changing event in our lives. It’s more like choosing a car. You got to do proper research to find which kind of pet suits your lifestyle, budget, and your current situation. However, having a pet means more responsibilities. You would bombard your mind with a bunch of questions during the decision-making process. Do I have time to maintain it? Can I afford to get one?
Here are some basic things that might help you out:
Having a cat has several advantages. It is independent, works with kids and is also available at an affordable price. However, some people are allergic to cats.
Then, a dog would be an excellent choice. But, having a dog follows a great responsibility. It needs to have a consistent routine such as a daily walk and may be difficult to manage for long periods. If it is a big dog, one must also expect it to eat a lot, which will be very expensive in the long run.
Cats and dogs might not be your thing. So, maybe you’re considering some exotic pets. Lizards, snakes, spiders, you name it. However, it may not be a good idea if you have some curious, small kids. To add, you might need to get a permit for adopting the more exotic ones.
