So you’re back from school or college and you open the front door. What’s your attitude towards your pet?
It’s box set time! And the scene looks like this - you: on sofa, with snacks and a drink, you’re in this for the long haul. Where is your pet?
What about the practical responsibilities of pet ownership? Let’s start with food - who feeds your pet?
And all that food’s gotta go somewhere, so let’s get brutal - what is your attitude to … um … toileting arrangements?
And finally, what are your hopes and dreams for this pet?
You got ....
Ok this is gonna sound tough but we’re thinking entry level pet for you. So something that doesn’t need too much … interaction? And putting it bluntly is hard to kill. Fish are very pretty. But you do need to feed those. WE’ve heard people have a lot of success with giant snails?
Something fluffy and small
So there’s some choice here but we’re basically suggesting something fluffy and small. Because you’re dependable and you’ll keep it clean, and maybe you can get some of those toys it can play with when out of the cage? Hamster? Guinea pig? We'd suggest gerbils but someone we know got two boy ones of those and within months had 20. Because they WEREN’T both boys … and no one needs that kind of complication in their life right now.
It's the dog zone.
Because you’re all about enthusiasm and energy (think walks twice a day people) and that pathetic tongue hanging out jumping up excitement when they see you. And you don’t mind picking up poo. Which matters.
You’re a cat person
Because you want love and hugs, but on your terms. I mean, we’re not saying you’re a TOTAL cold fish, but you like your animals to have SOME level of independence and the ability to get on with life on themselves. And if they can clean themselves up and learn to pee out of doors - well that’s even better.
