I am a pet owner, and as such, I’ve had my share of inconveniences when having them. Having a pet at home changes your life in many ways. It is a question of sharing space and having to give up a few things for the companionship they bring. For some people, this is worth it, while some may find it a little difficult to bear. But in the end, what’s more, important is what they bring to the table.
When someone hears the word “pet,” it is usually cats and dogs. There are a few pet owners who prefer birds. Each different type has its unique set of pros and cons. As far as birds, I guess that the biggest pro, if you’re not that big on exercise, is that you don’t need to walk them. The only thing you need is to keep their cages clean. They might throw a little birdseed on the floor every now and then, but that’s as messy as it’s going to get.
There’s a wide selection of birds you can choose from depending on your needs as a pet owner. In terms of safety, birds are not very dangerous. There are a few that can bite and do sometimes. In these cases, you may want to keep a close eye on your kids. Remember, kids, are very curious and love to poke at things and animals to see what kind of reaction they can get.
I have seen some birds biting back when they are poked, so watch out. You should also keep in mind the noise that the birds can make. Some people don’t like noise very much, they like it quiet. So, if you’re one of these people then parakeets are probably out of the question. They can be very noisy, especially if you have several of them. They are usually quiet at night but if they hear a noise that wakes them up, that can be enough to get them going.
No, when it comes to dogs and cats, noise can be just one of the issues. Dogs and cats are very different. Cats are very quiet animals, just like their wild relatives. They are usually exploring every corner of your house, especially the minute you bring them into your house. It is natural for them to want to know how everything works and be prepared for a quick getaway if need be.
They will sometimes surprise their owners jumping on them. What they are doing there is testing their ambushing abilities. Remember that cats are natural hunters so that behavior should not be considered aggressive. For the most part, when they’re not exploring, they can be seen sleeping everywhere. At night, they are mostly asleep.
Or at least that’s what these owners were thinking. They were being awakened at 6 a.m. every morning. Some of the times they would even get startled, so they set up a hidden camera to see what they could find out. When they checked the footage, their jaws dropped to the floor!
