Hi all, Actually i wanted to have a pet at my home, thinking of what to keep. My kids are really insisting me a lot to keep any. I wanna keep a pet that has a bit less management to do, as i don't have enough time to take care. What do you have as a pet, myself thinking about any birds or fishes(less time consuming), what you say??

I have a ferret but I wouldnt suggested on getting one of those they are very high maintance and love to play. How old are your children? Depending on age fish are usually a good pet to start out with. I got my children each a betta fish. Also hermit crabs are not so bad either.

My kids are 5 years and 3 years, and as kids we never had pet (atleast not me), so don't know much about maintance..., that's why thinking of some smaller ones only..

get 1 betta fish. and a small little tank. you can clean the take twice a week or use a turkey basser to suck out the stuff at bottom of tank and add water. I got my kids a betta fish at this age the 5 year old will be able to help with feeding which would be every other day

No I wish I had a dog though but my parents dont want me having one for some reason they think I wont take care of it wich I think I can handle a dog. Only problem is when I work wich will be hard for me to take care of one but I still want one and hopefully one day ill have one.

perhaps you can have some goldfish or beautiful little birds since you dont want too much trouble.i do have a pet, a dog as my very good friend but i think a mom with your kids may not have the leisure to walk and play with dogs.
