But in the content of the cats there are both pros and cons. Talk more about that.

The drawback in the content of cat can be:

Some cats in a certain period of time like to put labels all over the apartment. And some even poop.

Cute pussies often sharpen their sharp claws on your favorite sofa.

It is very frustrating when played as a pet in the gambling mood jumping on the curtains and climbs on the table.

The pluses for the acquisition of cats are:

They do not need long walks several times a day.

Exotic animals

For most people the choice of pet is reduced to arguing about who’s better, dogs or cats. But, some connoisseurs of the exotic increasingly thinking about purchasing an unusual, rare animal.

Before acquiring an exotic pet think carefully. Will you be able to provide the necessary animal care. Do you have any conditions for its maintenance? Or your goal is to brag to your friends strange beast? Give yourself a clear answer to these questions, only then you can seriously think about buying “exotic”.

If you do decide to buy exotic animals, it is important to understand what type of animal suits you better. There is a great variety of exotic animals suitable for living in the house as Pets. We list several of them:

Reptiles. This group includes various types of lizards, turtles, snakes and small crocodiles.

Primates. This includes the suborders lemuroid, Arievich and some other small monkeys.

So, the choice is yours. It doesn’t matter who you prefer; cats, dogs or exotic animals. It is important to know that a pet is not a toy, and not a showpiece. It is a living being, care and protect. Remember, we are responsible for those who tamed!
