The rewards of owning such an animal are numerous, but so are the costs and responsibilities.

They are cute and childlike” but are not a substitute for human babies. Sure, they are often treated like babies by their owners putting them in diapers and strollers but they also act like babies, permanently, with all the messes and screaming included.

It’s important to consider the others in your household as well. Their personalities and schedules will also be factors in your decision. If you have children, you’ll need a pet that is easygoing and playful. The best pets are those that will fit in well with your family, so you might need to do some compromising.

Make sure to research specific care requirements for any new reptile pet.

Technically in the same family as dogs, these critters apparently act more like cats (and you know how we feel about those eternally-shade throwing mice catchers).

Most people are of the opinion that rabbits are excellent pets for children. There are, however, many things to be considered before thinking of giving a home to these animals, especially when you have young children. Cline KM (2010).
