Choosing a Pet

Pets can add so much to our lives, becoming extra members of the family. However, owning a pet is a responsibility and it is wise to ask yourself the following questions before committing to getting an animal, which ideally should stay with you for life.

  • How much will the pet cost, and how much are the ongoing costs of ownership?
    Non-pedigree animals can often be obtained free of charge from animal shelters, friends, neighbours and newspaper advertisements. Initial and ongoing costs include (for cats and dogs): vaccinations, neutering, pet food, flea remedies, kennels (when going on holiday), bedding, possibly pet insurance or unforeseen vets bills, cat flaps and (possibly) dog doors. For cats you may also need to buy cat litter (especially if the cat is to be housebound, or you have a young kitten who you have not yet let out); for dogs you will need a collar and a lead. You may also wish to consider having your cat or dog microchipped, so it can be identified and you can be informed should it go astray or get run over.
  • How much time will I need to spend caring for my pet?
    Dogs can be quite high maintenance. They need walking everyday, grooming and bathing. A responsible dog owner will also need a pocket full of polythene bags for picking up doggy doos when walking down roads and in parks. You will also need to vacuum your house and car more often to get rid of hair and dirt that the dog will spread. Cats take less maintenance, unless you have a long haired cat such as a Persian, which will require daily grooming as otherwise their fur becomes tangled and knotted. Small animals including rodents (mice, gerbils, rats and hamsters) will need their cages cleaning out regularly.

lucy This is Lucy, my cat. She is nearly five years old now. We got her from a neighbour who knew of some farm kittens that needed a home. Lucy is the most intelligent and affectionate cat in the world, but of course, I am biased.

She sleeps on our bed at night (so no additional bedding costs) and spends a lot of time playing with my two sons. In fact, I think she believes that she is my third child - the furry daughter I never had.

 

OK, enough about cats, I want a dog. How do I decide which breed to get?

Choosing the correct breed of dog is important, as dogs have vastly differing temperaments. You will need to do some research on the breed that you are thinking of getting. The sorts of questions you may wish to consider asking include:

  • Is the breed good with children?
  • Is it easy to train?
  • Is it boisterous or quiet?
  • Will it require a lot of grooming?
  • Will it be friendly?
  • Will it get along with my existing dog / cat?
