Important ❕Things to Consider πŸ€” before Getting a Pet 🐢🐱 ...


There is a right of passage in every humans life, be it the day one steps into their first apartment, the first glance of the sold sign outside of a freshly bought house, the big begging eyes of a child, or even a now long lived life looking for a companion in slower years. The instance that sets it off is different for everyone, yet the conclusion is the same β€œI want a pet.” There are some things to consider before getting a pet.

The eternal love and devotion is something that has always gripped the heart of man, and why wouldn't it? A warm furry body to cuddle up to on cold days, a scaled beauty to slowly fall in love with, or a feathered heathen to sing and mock you around the house. There is a pet for everyone so now the question is, β€œhow do I know it is time?”

Getting a pet is not a spur of the moment decision that can be made in an instant. There is planing and questions that need to be made and asked and even then most people are caught off guard the first morning they see the loving face of the being that is now dependent on them. Here are five things to consider before getting a pet.

1. Space

One of the most important things to consider before getting a pet is how much space you have. Though people have tried to fit a mastiff in a studio apartment, this is not the best idea. Take a look at your home. Is it a small space that is perfect for one person or is it large enough to share? Now look again. Can you see a pet bed, food dishes, toys galore? Does it all fit? Even when getting a small animal, the amount of space they take up is massive. Nothing is sacred any longer, kibble will find its way into couches, toys into shoes and a strong excited tail can easily take out wobbling items.
