Here are a few questions to ask yourself before choosing a pet. If you get a pet that fits what you are wanting in the pet, there is a much larger chance that your experience in pet ownership will be a happy and fulfilling one.
(1) Do I want an active pet? Some pets, such as horses and most dogs, require a lot of exercise. Do you have enough time to exercise the pet every day? If pets don’t get enough exercise, they can become obese and destructive.
(2) Am I or anyone else that will be living with the pet allergic? You and any others who will be living with the pet should go meet the type of animal you might get as a pet, unless the pet doesn’t have fur or feathers.
