Except for those who are not attracted by the animals, people are all, in principle, good candidates to have a pet at home as a family member. To choose the right pet for the family, you have to consider some factors such as household size and resources at your disposal.
In any case, experts discourage impulsive behaviors to adopt or buy a pet because you see them “sad" on display at a store without previously evaluating whether you can meet the minimum requirements to ensure their welfare.
For this reason, this article will demystify how to choose the right pet.
Does each person have a perfect pet?
There are many benefits that animals provide to people of different age and conditions. Animals are used in therapies for older people, adults, adolescents, children, and people with autism.
While you recognize yourself in the role of good pet owners, it is not always the case that the pet chooses you during playtime. This is often seen in family dynamics where one of the members, usually the mother, is responsible for feeding, grooming and day care.
However, the pet will go to another family member to have fun and play. For this reason, I think one of the most important questions to answer is, why you want a pet? The honest answer to this question will be the key to finding your perfect furry companion. You have to conduct a study about your inner personality, tastes, and lifestyle. Here are a few clues that can help you think about the ideal pet for you:
Love and fidelity – Dog
Companionship and affection – Cat
Intelligence – parrots, and rats
Fun and joy – guinea pig
Affection – Rabbit
Beauty – Fish
Animal instinct – Ferret
Alternative beauty – Reptiles
Regardless of the pet, you choose either a hamster or a St. Bernard; you must not forget that that animal is domesticated and therefore entirely dependent on you. It has never learned to fight for their food or seek shelter from adverse weather conditions. In return for your minimal care, you will have love and full of unforgettable moments. Whoever shared their life with a pet will understand that they are part of your family. You will never forget, suffering their departure as any loved one.
