The 7 Best Pets to Raise with Your Boyfriend ...


Are you and your boyfriend thinking of getting a pet?

There are many factors to consider in making your choice, such as the expenses involved and the time commitment.

It's best to stick to animals that are easy to care for, unless you have the experience to care for exotic species.

So here are some ideas of suitable pets …

1. Caged Birds

Caged Birds

Caged birds can be delightful pets, and don't necessarily require a great deal of space, so they're ideal if you live in a small apartment.

Some birds, like finches, prefer company, so you may need to get a pair.

Budgies are entertaining, noisy little companions that can learn a substantial vocabulary if you start teaching them when they're young enough.

What about a dog?
My boyfriend and I have several rats. Soooo adorable!! We have a fish too.
I'm glad the author mentioned ferrets & babies:If you have a baby or are expecting please keep a ferret away from the child under all circumstances. In addition to being destructive, Some breeds are sensitive to high pitched noises (baby crying) and have attacked and killed infants.
I agree @Katie. I have a black Lab puppy an she is the best thing EVER!!! So sweet...
Absolutely Cats are great I had my first pet a kitten at age 44 thinking it would be a complete & utter disaster being so old with a new pet added to the family- it's so a happy ending - we adore Drake to bits he fits in while entertaining us daily!!!!

Love how the cover picture is a dog yet you don't mention it as a pet .... That would be the ONLY pet I get with my boyfriend lol

I assume dogs aren't on the list because they are considered more high maintenance than some of the other species listed. Rabbits aren't necessarily easy keepers either.
