There’s a drive in most people to have some sort of pet. Introverts like them because they don’t demand tedious things like “conversation” or “socializing.” Extroverts like them because they can run and fetch and swim alongside. Some folks have practical pets, like the farm cats whose job it is to catch the mice in the barn. Others have show pets that are pampered more than most people. It doesn’t matter if you have acres of space or a teeny-tiny apartment, you can find the right sized critter to keep you company.
Here’s a list of some popular pets. Which is your favorite?
The most popular pet. Owners will argue forever about why their breed is better than all of the others.
Running an extremely close second in popularity, but number one for aloofness. Cats see ownership the other way around.
A very popular pet in the UK. They’re as soft as puppies, as quiet as cats, and don’t need much room.
Colorful and excitable, birds can be a lot of fun to watch. Some can be kind of harsh on the ears, though.
Tiny, furry, and easy to take care of, hamsters will often be a child’s first pet. Plus, your whole room will smell like cedar.
I would only keep fish to have an excuse to get more bubbly toys and black light props for my aquarium.
As someone who feels the cold acutely, lizards are my spirit animal. If I could go out and sun on a rock to store up heat, I would.
It takes a special kind of person to keep snakes as a pet. Good for you!
