What pet should I get? Finding the best pet for your personality
Pets aren’t just for those who have time for walks, grooming, and feeding. There’s a pet to match everyone's commitment and energy level.
In Australia, we love our pets. According to the RSPCA, 61 per cent of households have at least one - equating to about 29 million pets in total.
It’s not hard to see why. Pets bring companionship, happiness, fun, love, and can increase our well-being. During the pandemic, our love for animal friends skyrocketed, to the point where over 60 per cent of owners referred to their pets as ‘part of the family.’
Depending on the variety of pet you get, it can require a lot of commitment, care and responsibility, and there are many things to consider before bringing one home. Cuddling a dog or bunny rabbit may be a cute idea, but there may be a lot of work and responsibility to consider for the remainder of this pet’s life, both outside and inside the home.
So based on your personality and lifestyle, which pet should you get?
