  1. Cat

    You need a cat!

    Cats are fun but sometimes a little bit challenging. A good thing about them is that they don't need as much attention as a dog, for example.

  2. Dog

    You need a dog!

    Dogs are filled with joy; a sunshine walking on four legs, so to say! But they need a lot of attention, so be careful!

  3. Hamster

    You need a hamster!

    Hamsters are crazy little guys, but not every hamster becomes tame. Some may never want to be touched by their owner. What a hamster needs is a lot of patience!

  4. Pig

    You need a pig!

    Pigs are somewhat special because most people wouldn't think of them as pets. But pigs are quite cleanly, even if you don't believe it. But they can get very big and need a lot of space and preferably a garden where they can dig!

  5. Parrot

    You need a parrot!

    Parrots can be challenging but very worthwhile companions. They are very smart, but not all learn to speak. They need space to fly, though!

  6. Snake

    You need a snake!

    Snakes are very exotic pets. But most snakes can't be pet and prefer to be left alone. But watching a snake can be very interesting!

  7. Rat

    You need a rat!

    Rats are smart rodents that like to play and are very cute. But rats shouldn't be held alone and need more space than you might think! And they usually don't get very old, which is quite sad.

  8. Chameleon

    You need a chameleon!

    Chameleons are very cool, but the biggest problem is giving them the habitat they need. Chameleons need a big cage that resembles their natural habitat. It should be ventilated and warm. And chameleons take a lot of time adapting to a new habitat. That means they need a lot of patience.

  9. Alpaca

    You need an alpaca!

    Alpacas are very cute! But they need a lot of space. A looot! Fenced land with a shelter is ideal. You can keep approximately five to ten alpacas per acre. So if you have a farm or something, why not getting yourself a pet alpaca?

  10. Goldfish

    You need a goldfish!

    Goldfish are cute and do not need as much care as other animals. Fish are ideal beginner pets!

  11. You don't seem to be ready for a pet


    But your answers didn't seem like you're ready for the big responsibilities a pet means. Pets are not toys, they're living creatures with needs.

  12. Tarantula

    You need a tarantula!

    Tarantulas are fascinating. They don't need a lot of space and are easy to maintain. A big downside is that they're hard to interact with, so you may just be watching them do their thing. And they are quite delicate. Falling from your hand to the floor may cause a broken leg.

    Another downside: They can be quite dangerous. They have a lot of defense mechanisms that can be a threat to people.
