You are a big animal lower, but you have a small apartment so you think you can’t have pets? Well, you can’t be more wrong! There are lots of low-maintenance pets suitable for apartments, even the smallest ones! We give you five easy pets to have – just pick one you like the most!
Goldfish are one of easiest pets to care about and it’s not coincidence that they are called the classic lazy man’s pet. They take up a limited amount of space, you have to clean their tank once a week and they only need to be fed once a day. Fish are also one of the most decorative pets to have in the apartment because their aquarium can usually enhance the looks of any space. Put in a couple of accessories such as fake corals, castles and other decorations and it will look great. Plus, fish food is really inexpensive and long lasting – what more do you need?! Well, there is also one negative side of a fish pet – you can’t really play with them or interact with them at all.
Unlike a dog, cats don’t need to be taken outside to do their business â€” owner only needs to change their litter every day or every second day. That is the best part of having a cat instead of a dog. Even though some would think different, cats really like to cuddle and it’s nice to have them. The negative side is an increased risk of damage to your precious furniture. They have a natural urge to file their claws somewhere. But, if you are a patient human being, that won’t be a problem, because you can train them to scratch on some special places, instead of the couch. One thing to remember – if you have problems with allergies, forget about cats and move on!
Birds are a perfect pet. They can be kept in a cage and they don’t really eat much. If you buy some nice cage and colorful bird, it can also fit perfectly into your apartment design. Plus, maybe you get some free music from time to time.
