These are my favorite animals as pets.
#5. Rabbits – I had a rabbit when I was a kid. These guys are cute, smart, and pretty clean. They also do not make much noise. They poop in little pellets which does help in clean up. Unfortunately, they drop hair and they aren’t really good for anything but dinner. LOL JK They make good pets if they get used to being handled. And what is cuter than a little bunny?
#4. Betta (fish) – The great thing about bettas is that they live in a little filterless tank. They are happy in a small enclosure, easy to care for, easy to move around, beautiful, and they only live 3 years (give or take a little). That means they won’t burden you down with their care for too long. Get a pair and put them in two tank beside each other and watch them flare up ready for battle. Did I mention that all the most beautiful ones are males?
#3. Cats/Kittens – Admittedly, I would never want a cat in my house. They make the house smell, they are aloof, they require attention to prevent hairballs and destructive behavior, they drop hair everywhere, and they are natural hunters which makes it hard to have some of the other pets mentioned in this list along with the cat. However, they can be cuddly at times and when they are in the mood make great hands on pets.
#2. Parrots – I am a fan of birds because they are so smart. They look at you and you can tell they are thinking and problem solving. They can be mischievous and noisy at times, but they are good pets. They also can be kept in a cage while you are gone at work and you don’t have to feel guilty.
#1. Dogs – Of course, did you think any different? I love dogs, puppies, big dogs, little ones, mean looking dogs, cute dogs, long haired dogs, shaggy dogs, short haired dogs, it doesn’t matter. Dogs are man’s best friend! They look to you for protection, food, shelter and love. When you come home, your dog doesn’t care if you had a great day or a lousy day at work. He just wags and licks as always. No pet in the world can compare with a loyal dog.
