If you are thinking about getting a pet for your family the three most important things to consider are:
1. Your Time or commitment factor- how much time do you really have to devote to this animal?
2. Size, how much room do you have- do you have a large yard, or do you live in a unit or apartment.
3. Price how much money can you afford to spend on your pet. It’s not just the initial price of purchase but also the ongoing costs of care such as food, medical bill etc.
Once you have answered these three questions you can then move onto the fun part which is actually choosing your pet . Cat, dog, rabbit, bird, fish, skink, hermit crab, frog, alpaca the list is endless .
I know that baby animals are so adorable but there is a lo to be said about rescuing an animal in need, more often then not these pets turn out to be the best ones. So before you rush off to the pet shops or breeders why not have a look through the animal shelters first or the even trading post, you just never know what you might find, your new best friend could be there waiting eagerly for you.
