For most of us, the perfect thing to complete a household is pets — and lots of them!
Not only do pets keep you company and give you lots of love, but they will also keep you occupied whilst providing you with lots of memories to cherish. From the small and slimy to the big and hairy, we’ve got you covered for the animals every household needs!
Fish are great for those who may not have the time, money or ability to own any more large pets. Even if you often travel on short trips, you can purchase fish feeding blocks. Be prepared to research water temperatures and which fish can be housed together. And remember to be careful of your other pets prying eyes (and stomachs)!
There are a variety of smaller pets that we’re sure your heart and homes have room for. Bunnies and guinea pigs are great for those who want outdoor, ‘hut-living’ pets. Otherwise, rats and mice are great for the indoors and—despite their bad rep—they’re adorable and sweet! (Or at least that’s what we hear…)
The first animal that generally comes to mind when you’re thinking about a furry new family member is a dog. Dogs come in all shapes and sizes, and with so many breeds and personality types to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect fit for your family. Have we mentioned how happy and loving dogs are? There’s nothing better than coming home at the end of a long day and having your canine pal greet you with sheer joy and excitement.
A cat (or two or four) is a must have for all households. They are amusing, fluffy, loving, interesting and at times, downright strange. Every cat may be unique, but they have one thing in common; they will take over your life and your social media accounts. Okay so not in the violent kind of way, but in the “I love you so much I’m going to watch you do cat things all day long” way.
Whether you choose to have parrots, love birds or lorikeets, birds are such great pets to have. Birds are extremely underrated, and despite them being less common than some other pet choices, they can be very affectionate, loving and have hilarious personalities. If you’re looking to own some birds, it’s a great excuse to start an outdoor project by building an outdoor aviary. For those who want a self-sufficient household, why not get chickens? This way you can ensure the eggs you eat come from well looked after chickens.
