Do you have young children who constantly cajole you into buying a pet? Miniature pets, for one, are very popular these days. Birds, teacup poodles, Shih Tzus, and more are just some of the cute and fancy pets that seem to mesmerize young kids especially since you can carry these miniature pets around like small babies. However, you may be apprehensive because you feel the kids are not ready for such a responsibility. Moreover, you know that your home is not ready for a pet, no matter its size.
Indeed, having a pet is more than just having fun, enjoying the company of a fancy animal. Having a pet around the house is a major decision that requires careful thought. It means assuming the commitment to attend to the pet’s overall needs such as health care and safety, grooming, exercise, diet and vaccination. Getting a pet entails getting familiar with various responsibilities.
