I was just wondering, what kind of pet would be good for me? What is your favorite pet?

Well we can't really decide what pet would be best for you because we didn't get any information about you...do you want an animal you can cuddle with, do you want one that's really easy to take care of? Dogs and cats are of course the most popular pets, so if that sounds like something you'd be interested than go for it! (ADOPT from a shelter/rescue, don't buy from a breeder!! ) Snakes are easy to take care of, but you do have to feed them mice (they can eat frozen mice). Just make sure whatever animal you get you read up on them and learn how to take care of them properly. Ask someone at the place where you adopt your new friend how to care for them-they'll be happy to tell you.

My son just got a Chinese Water Dragon (lizard) she is pretty cool and is pretty laid back. She is much cooler than my daughter's gerbil. Both are fairly easy to take care of. The lizard is fun to watch and it's neat to see her eat her crickets.

I really hate pet animals because they make so much unnecessary sound which i really don't like.

I don't have pet such as cat or dogs but I do consider the kids ones. Most of the people keep dogs as their pet and I think it is good for you too. It looks nice to carry your pet specially when you go for walk.

i had a pet dog.my family always liked dogs,we never liked cats at all for so many reasons,resons i think better left unsaid here. i also liked fish but they are cold blooded and sometimes i just find it expensive,not like dogs,they can breed and can be adopted without any fees charged. whatever you want to take care of,it is really good to know the advantage and disadvantages of taking care of them.

How much time are you able to afford, taking care of the pet? If you do not have much time in hand, maybe you can consider pets that require minimum attention and will survive with/without human interaction.

I think you should get a pet snake. Not many people own a snake, and they think they are scary and slimy, but they are actually really cool. They don't bite, and they can sense when you're scared holding them. They are really cheap to own, because they only need to be feed once ever 2 weeks up to a month. So, I think you should get a snake!
