The best Slough accident claim solicitors for injuries caused by animals
A cat can be an animal that brings joy to your life, and so can a rabbit, dog, and even smaller animals like hamsters, lizards and even fish can have a calming and happy effect.
It can be hard to decide which would be the best pet for you.
Many people are dog lovers, but if you don’t have a very big home, or find it difficult to get out and give them the walks they need every day, they can be tricky to keep. They can demand a lot of time and attention, eat a lot of food, and generally cost more than other animals.
But dogs can also be very loyal and loving, and are fun to watch and play with. They will keep you fit and give you a good reason for regular walks, and often seem to know if you’re upset or sad, coming to you to give you comfort.
Others prefer cats, since even if you don’t have a garden you can just keep them inside. They don’t take up much room, and don’t need walking. They can be a bit messy (as can dogs), leaving muddy footprints everywhere and shedding their hairs on furniture etc.
But it can be very lovely if a cat jumps on your lap and settles down to go to sleep, or starts purring when you stroke him. They can also be very beautiful, and fun to watch as they run around.
If you have even less room, a caged animal like a mouse or hamster can be good. Bear in mind that hamsters normally like to sleep during the day, so might not want to play when you want to. You also have to be careful when you let hamsters out of their cage or tank, that they don’t escape and take a long time to find again.
Hamsters can also escape from the cage itself, since they’re excellent climbers, and you might wake up in the morning to find little Chewwy gone. It can be pretty sad when a cat finds him before you do.
A Fur Allergy Doesn’t Mean No Pet at All
If you have an allergy to fur, a lizard or other reptile could be the solution.
But sometimes pets can bring diseases and can be vicious, attacking people. A cat could scratch you and it could get infected, leading to eventually a need to amputate that limb. Or a dog bite could cause rabies. Lizards carry salmonella, which can infect you even if you just touch them. And cat’s waste can also cause brain disease.
