4 Condo-Friendly Pets You Can Own
Many of us lead busy lives. This is one of the reasons why people look for places to live near their work, such as Fort condos for sale, to avoid traffic and other commute hassles. Adding another thing to take care of can be stressful but that doesn’t always have to be the case. If you are looking for companionship yet you don’t want a roommate then consider adopting a pet.
Feeling hesitant? Don’t be. Pets may require attention and dedication but those are nothing compared to the benefits they will bring in your life. Contrary to popular belief, not all pets are high maintenance. Here are 4 pets that you can easily raise in a condominium:
- Guinea Pig
These gentle rodents are often overlooked in favor of hamsters and gerbils. Guinea pigs are actually great pets especially if you have kids or you want a pet you can cuddle that is not too big. They rarely bite, they like to play, and they squeak in excitement whenever they see you. They also do this thing called ‘popcorning’, where they jump up and kick their heels in the air whenever they are feeling happy. If you haven’t seen a guinea pig do popcorning then you are in for a treat.
This bird can be kept by itself and does not require much. Keep it healthy and happy by feeding it with protein and fiber-rich food (consult a vet first!). Provide a toy or two to keep it entertained. A swing can help keep your canary happy but be careful not to overstock on the toys because these can just clutter up the cage. Your top priority must be ample space for the canary to fly around so avoid putting too many toys in the cage. Putting some damp grass on the bottom of the cage will be good too since canaries in the wild like to roll on damp leaves or grass.
- Betta Fish
Skip the common goldfish, which are kind of fragile and require a fairly elaborate tank and filter setup. Instead, go for a Betta fish. Also known as fighting fish, these brilliantly colored fish with long, flowing tails are happy in a small tank with the occasional plastic plant which your fish can hide into in case he is feeling shy. Feel free to decorate the tank and even consider adding an aquatic snail in the bowl to keep the algae at bay. A friendly advice though: if you want to buy another Betta fish, keep it in a separate bowl unless it is female. They are known as ‘fighting fish’ for a reason.
People will definitely fall for this bundle of fur with big eyes and a personality that can match their owners’. There are a lot of dog breeds out there so choose one that can fit your lifestyle. Are you someone who loves to do outdoor activities? Get yourself a German Shepherd or a Siberian Husky. Do you have a hectic schedule? Breeds like the Chihuahua, Greyhound, and French Bulldog are some of the dogs who will do just fine if their owner works all day. Just remember: dogs require a reasonable amount of your time. But if you devote yourself to them, you will find a companion who will be willing to lay down his life to protect you no matter what.
