Thinking about getting a pet but not sure which one is right for you? I’ve had cats, dogs, guinea pigs, hamsters, fish and birds throughout my adult life. I think that makes me pretty qualified to help you decide on the right family pet for you!

5 Best Tips for Choosing the Right Family Pet

Right now, I have three dogs, three cats, two guinea pigs and an African grey parrot. Years ago, I also had an iguana, parakeets, lovebirds, fish and a hamster. My boyfriend has a ball python and I have an aunt who had a goose for a pet. Throughout my family, we’ve also had bunnies, turtles and several other types of birds. We’ve pretty much had them all! My grandfather really wanted a pet ostrich, but my grandmother drew the line at that!

Best tips for choosing the right family pet

The most important tip for choosing the right family pet is to make sure that you’re positive about your choice. It’s not fair to give an animal a home, and then change your mind. It’s traumatic to both your family and the animal. Be sure that you’re ready to make the commitment. Cats and dogs can live longer than ten years. I have a cat that is almost 18 and two dogs that will be 13 this year. Parrots live even longer. My African grey will outlive me! Have a family pet is a long commitment. If you don’t think you can care for them that long, please just get a fish.
