Having fish can be a fun, worthwhile and satisfying experience. Contrary to popular belief, fish are intelligent creatures and form tight social bonds.
Soft fur. Cute, round eyes. Fluffy tails and noses that are always twitching. Just looking at a bunny is enough to make any heart melt, which is why they’re a common and much-loved children’s pet.
Hedgehogs, part of the Erinaceidae family with seventeen species in total, are popular pets. These spiny mammals are endemic to Europe, Africa, New Zealand, and Asia. With spiny backs and fur-covered faces, the number one reason for getting a hedgehog is undoubtedly the cuteness factor.
If you’re looking for a new furry friend to keep you company, but your lifestyle or living situation aren’t suitable for a big pet such as a dog or cat, a hamster can be a great choice. Hamsters are small, relatively inexpensive, and can be left alone for many hours during the day since they are naturally nocturnal and will simply sleep while you are away at work or school.
Getting a dog is a huge, life-altering decision that should always be preceded by thorough research. Dogs can enrich your life in many ways, but they aren’t for everyone. There are a myriad of factors to consider before deciding whether to bring a new canine family member into your home, such as your lifestyle, health, and financial situation.
Cats make amazing pets. They’re affectionate little fluff balls who perfectly fit into your lap and enjoy cuddling with their owners. They’re also hilarious and will keep you entertained with their quirky sleeping positions and natural instinct to hunt and play. What’s more, cats can live longer than a lot of other popular pets — 10 to 15 years on average, although the oldest cat we know of lived for an unbelievable 38 years — so you’ll get to enjoy your furry companion for a long time.
