Pets are incredibly common because of the companionship and love they offer to an individual or family. However pets can be a huge responsibility and it can be difficult to take care of a pet if you have a busy schedule or lots of other responsibilities. So what are the easiest and most difficult pets to care for? The easiest pets to take care of are small and lower maintenance pets that often live in an atrium or crate environment instead of in the living space. These kinds of pets such as hamsters, rabbits, or guinea pigs are common and in addition to being good pets for people who can’t have a dog or cat living with them or don’t want to they are also good starter pets ways to learn the responsibility of having a pet for younger children or first time pet owners. Other pets can be more difficult to provide proper care for, first of all are larger pets such as dogs and cats animals that require more space and more attention can take more effort in addition not all apartment spaces allow larger pets. Other difficult pets to care for are pets that require specific heat or other environmental requirements.

Another factor in getting a pet is money so some pets require expensive atriums or food and these expensive elements make pets harder to care for.

So when making a decision about what pet to get take into consideration all the factors including your own resources and experience with the type of pet.
