Reading: pets



Having a pet can provide hours of fun, interest and companionship. There’s a pet for everyone, no matter what your lifestyle, space limitations or desires.

Getting to know a pet can certainly be wonderful but you need to find out if the pet you want is the right one for your lifestyle.

So … which pet will suit your lifestyle?

Cats: Cats are very independent animals and can be left alone all day, but you have to give them a lot of love when you get home. With proper care, cats can live for sixteen years or more, so don’t get this kind of pet  if you think you are not prepared to look after an animal for such a long time.

Dogs: Dogs should never be left alone for long periods of time and require exercise. They lovecompanion-ship and will enjoy being with their human family whenever possible.

Small animals: Hamsters, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits and other small animals are excellent pets for children as well as for adults, and are suitable for most families. These small animals don’t often live for long, which is ideal for children or families that don’t want to commit to a long-term pet.

Birds: Pet birds can be lovely companions and are available in a huge variety of types, from very small birds to big ones. They are intelligent, sociable and often amusing. Small birds are good pets if you live in a flat. Large parrots can also be fine if you can spend plenty of quality time with them. So keep them company whenever possible and talk to them.

Fish: Fish can fit into any lifestyle. They are quiet, need no vaccinations, and are beautiful and calming to watch. Cold-water fish like goldfish are cheaper than tropical fish that live in fresh warm water or marine fish that live in salt water. Fish may be boring but they are excellent stress-reducers.

Reptiles: Reptiles are fascinating pets but people wrongly imagine that they require very little care. In fact, they need very specialised care, including specific food, lighting, heat, humidity and enclosures.

When you decide which kind of pet to adopt, visit for some help to choose the particular animal which will suit your lifestyle best. This pet lovers’ website offers you a lot of good advice on how to choose the right pet for you and keeping it happy and healthy.
