The Top TenXW

1DogsDomesticated house hold pets that have evolved from wolves . They are sometimes bred with other species of wolves or dogs to create desirable purebreds or a new species of dogs.

I voted for the dogs because the are awesome and loyal great fo kids and play time

they are he most awesome and loving little animals a person can have - Okami

I LOVE dogs! They are cute and affectionate. I used to keep a dog too. My favorite breed is the golden retriever.

Dogs can kill skeletons and zombies and are loyal

2CatsThe "House Cat", also known as the Domestic Cat or the Feral Cat, is a small feline, a good hunter, and comes in a variety of colours and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated.

Cats simply rule. Hunt mice and eat spiders. (As long as they don't eat Steve. He's our tarantula. =3) - icepaw99

Wow you have a tarantula. I wish I had one but my cat would have eaten it lol.

I absolutely love cats they are such playful creatures! They will curl up on your lap and will make you laugh with the funny things that they do though I'm a kid and super hyper I dot need a hyper dog I can still have fun with my cats! Besides I could never hate cats I have read every single warriors book through into the forest through the last hope! I'm looking forwards to dawn of the clans : the sun trail and tallstar's revenge. I am a proud warrior! If you are a warrior lover please vote for this comment! ~Blizzardstar proud leader of Blizzardclan

The only animal who can live in a house with you and is still free and wild inside it's heart... Cats are the best definitely!
I once made a long list with the advantages and disadvantages of cats and dogs; and the cats' advantages were by far more than the dogs'!

Get lost, yourself. I'm not a 'dog person', I'm a 'dog and cat person'. Surely you can come up with something more original and intelligent than 'cats rule dogs drool'.

Dogs (even though I love em) are always in the same mood and sometimes I wish they could understand and then adjust. Cats always understand and funnier. They never fail to brighten my day. Every time I think about my cat, I smile.

3RabbitsRabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.

Aw rabbits with floppy ears are the best - Jeheffiner

To be honest, I've had two rabbits in the past and rabbits aren't very good pets at all. They're really cute, don't get me wrong but that's all they do, they're just there to look cute. Rabbits often times don't want to be bothered with you and never really form bonds with you like other pets (dogs, cats, rats) rabbits are extremely destructive and poop EVERYWHERE! And PEE! Especially males. They are super hard to potty train and whenever they're out of their cage, there's poop all over your floor! ' they chewed the baseboards and ripped up my carpet and also tore my curtains. If you want a pet who is moderately difficult and expensive to care for, doesn't actually love you, is destructive, smells, bites and scratches, but is cute, then get a rabbit.

I don't know why some people said they aren't good pets because they do not just sit there and look cute. I have 2 rabbits now and they are sweet and like licking me but sometimes they throw little tantrums. If you get one then please research because they aren't easy to take care of. They don't smell like some people said if you take care of them right. Only the pee smells but so do humans pee but that doesn't make us smelly. If you litter train the bunny which is very easy then it won't smell and please please please do not give the rabbit a bath because bathing can kill rabbits. And do not ask me why there aren't dead rabbits outside when it rains because when it rains they aren't submerged in a pool of star and they go in shelter before it rains hard and wild rabbits aren't domesticated they aren't the same.

My best friends got two rabbits and one just had bunnies I literally visit them every day after school

4Guinea PigsThe guinea pig, also called the cavy or domestic guinea pig, is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia.

I have 2 guinea pigs...They are adorable, intelligent, and easy to take care of! They are still a little shy (they will always be, just a little less over time), but they know who I am and are generally less scared of me. They are just the cutest little things! Unlike most rodents, they rarely bite, they will NOT pee or poo on your shirt, and they can eat a whole variety of things! Each one has a different personality, and it's SUPER fun to experiment and know more about them and their unique personality overtime. For instance, one of mine is super social, super friendly, and will chew on everything (how precious)! My other one, however, is very shy, and will only come out for people she recognizes. They were both rescued, and it makes me feel so happy to finally give those 2 a good home...I wouldn't trade them for the world!

I love Guinea pigs! I have 1 and his name is ferb. He doesn't squeak much but he is so cute. I couldn't live without him.

How can a monkey be above a guinea pig? They just sit their and squeak, eat whatever you give them and are chubby and cute and you don't need a license

Guinea pigs are so chubby, cute, soft, and sweet! I have no idea why some people eat them!

5Fish

You may not be able to interact with fish like dogs or cats (I also have 2 cats) but there is such a variety! Comment to random guy who commented that fish are edible THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH KEEPING A FISH AS A PET IDIOT! but really there is a great variety, you can get the simple lovable goldfish, giant 6 foot long fish in arowanas, a very colorful bunch in african cichlids and so on. And you can't be allergic to fish (well as a pet anyway) but fish can make a beautiful edition to a household. And amaze all of your house guests if you're good enough, all in all. Fish are one of the greatest non interactive pets to have

How the heck is this on 12? It should at least be at 3. Fish are easy to take care of. I have a betta and he seems happy. They don't make any noise and their much easier to take care of than a dog and cat.

I have two decorative fish ponds in my back yard. They have koi and goldfish in them. One is small with a bridge over it, and the bigger one is by a deck so my family can eat dinner while overlooking the pond. The ponds are really fun. People who say fish are boring are really ignorant. - Ku

Get a betta! You will get entertained easily and you don't need to get a big tank! But Lizards are wizards

6HamstersHamsters are rodents belonging to the subfamily Cricetinae. The subfamily contains about 25 species, classified in six or seven genera.

I had an amazing hamster, he's the best thing in the world, I love him so much and I really miss him :( if you're thinking of getting a pet, buy a hamster, by giving them plenty of cuddles, love and attention and healthy food with nice, safe toys, you can easily change an average hamster into an amazing one, they're so adorable and if you look after them properly, they are absolutely amazing animals

I have a hamster and he is so cute and really friendly
Moreover he is adorable and they love playing

I had a hamster once... He was awesome and so cute - Jeheffiner

I love hamsters

7Birds

Birds are so cool, I have a new cockatiel, and he a lot of fun.

Birds are amazing. They are sociable, easy to take care of, live a decently long life, cheap (most of them), and very beautiful. You also have to consider their superior intelligence to other animals. Whgen you take a ratio of work put into an animal to the output you get, birds are best.

By birds I like parrots you could spend lots of time chatting with parrots. - 50500505

Parrots are great

8Rats

My rats are what brought me out of depression. Knowing that something depends on you, and can't wait to see you is so important. The thing about rats is, they are extremely expressive. You always know what they are feeling. Which is why they are very good for people with mental disorders. They are easier than people. And so affectionate. Mine hate it so much when I leave that they will run and climb up my leg as soon as I stand up. They each have their own personality. And are much safer for children due to the fact that they only bite when they are terrified or in pain. Hamsters bite when they are grumpy (which is always because they sleep so much) and they are much easier to handle. People freak out about their teeth. They have the same size of teeth that a hamster has and the same amount of pressure. They are just easier to see. Yes they chew things, but that's because they are rodents. Which means their teeth will never stop growing. They are actually considered the cleanest of ...more

I have 2 rats and they are absolutely spectacular, like another post said; I have NEVER EVER been bitten by my rats. They're both girls and are so loving! They kick my hand and follow me around. Whenever I walk into the room they will climb up the bars on the cage and when I open it they will run out and greet me, often climbing onto my arm and sitting on my shoulders while playing in my hair (a sign of affection-- grooming) They are both girls and are the cutest thing ever, they're super easy to care for, I clean their cage every two weeks and let them out to play everyday. They don't even need to play everyday when they have a friend so they're great when you need to leave! They also eat almost anything you can eat so it's fun to give them treats. They're inexpensive, loving, and extremely smart! My girls learned their names in the first two months of having them! They can learn it even faster if you have a little more determination than me

Rats are the smartest animals on this list. They bond to their owners so fast and well and I have NEVER been bitten by my rats. They are like smaller versions of dogs. only cuter.

If I had a rat, whenever I get sad or angry, I would take it out of it's cage and play,

9Lizards

LizardZ ARE AWSOME! Keep bugs out of the house and love to Explore. LIZARDS ROCK!

Lizards are awesome! I have a bearded dragon. It is pretty easy to take care of her and she is in no way destructive or annoying. She doesn't bite or harm people unless you are being very harmful to her, and she is ADORABLE. Sure you can't play fetch with one or cuddle with it, but overall they are the best. - pandagirl

Lizards can make a great companion for any kid when you start with a Bearded Dragon or a gecko making them the nicest and non aggressive pets and loveable best buddies to have around.

Lizards are wizards! Finally people understand! But I do not have one! I wish I had one! I enjoy watching wild lizards! But a lizard you can pick up!?!?!? Yay! Vote for lizards! Lizards are wizards!

10ChinchillasChinchillas are two species of crepuscular rodents, slightly larger and more robust than ground squirrels. They are native to the Andes mountains in South America and live in colonies called "herds" at high elevations up to 4,270 m.

They should be ranked a little higher in my opinion because they are easy to take care of and are extremely great with other animals and also are great with younger children and older too! They don't have teeth so they can't bite like dogs, cats, rats, etc. They are one of the fluffiest animals in the world and they pick up cool tricks very easily its really fun and when you have to go somewhere the most of the day they will be sleeping so you don't have to worry about them getting lonely!

This is most reasonable cute and easy to take care of

Chinchillas rule the world! They're so cute! (And fluffy of course :) ) They're the only ones that don't have water baths!... They have Dust baths! I think you should vote for this pet! They're easy, I MEAN REALLY EASY to take care of. They make great pets for kids! Have a merry Christmas! 11-21-13

They are soft and hot like a hot water bottle

The Contenders

11Turtles

I have three turtles, and they are amazing! Just like dogs, cats and any other animal, these little guys have AWESOME personalities! I absolutely love my turtles, and plan to get a tortoise in the near future!

They are wayy cute. I love turtles. Turtles are the best pets on earth. How could they possibly only be number 9 ont he list

Turtles are awesome I have 4 and they didn't bite (once I trained them). The one and only negative thing about turtles is if you use gravel the tank gets filthy. But they are pretty cool because they hunt fish when I put feeder goldfish in with them.

I love turtles! They are my favourite animal ever!

12Tortoises

Easy to look after and incredibly cute as well. They are good with children and adults and eat cheap food as well!

I think they have insuring personalities and are personally for me at least No.3!

I vote tortoises because they don't make any noises, kids love to see their pets eat a lot and well that's what they do also I have one and it is so great to have. kids also get to grow up with a tortoise. and I should know because this is a kid speaking here!

13SnakesSnakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears.

Most people are afraid of snakes- because our culture teaches us to fear them. Books, movies, and media portray them as blood thirsty monstrosities- But they are very inquisitive and friendly creatures. I have nine snakes, one of which is wild caught, and all of them love being held and exploring the house from around my shoulders. I really have a hard time understanding the fear some people have of them, because I understand how gentle and innocent they truly are. They make great pets!

I have dogs and cats and am happy with them, but if I could, I would also have a snake or two with me. I tend to think of them as legless cats; calm, comforting (believe me) and not hard to look after. I just love corn snakes and milk snakes in particular. Snakes are so underrated. - PositronWildhawk

Snakes are awesome. They have no legs or arms, but they can still go very fast. Snakes aren't mean, they just look weird. You can put one over your shoulder and it won't even bother you! - gymnast82

Snakes are awesome and so harmless

14MiceA mouse is a small rodent characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, a body-length scaly tail and a high breeding rate. The best known mouse species is the common house mouse. It is also a popular pet.

I had a little mouse and she was adorable always kissing me and playing, I miss her, will get another one.
I would come back home and call her...she would come straight away!

Mice are so awesome! I love it when they squeak. I never actually had a pet mouse, but I know of people who have. Mice are another one of my favorite animals. Along with cats, ants, frogs, rabbits, and Guinea pigs. - VIPbunny10

I like rats more because I have heard that mice are like fish in a fish tank. They are both really cute I don't know how people can kill this little guys.

I hate mice and rats. They ruined our peanut butter.

15Gerbils

Gerbils are awesome pets. They're like hamsters but easier to care for, more fun to play with and they poop way less

Gerbils should be ranked much higher! I have one and they are fantastic pets because they are active and fun to watch, they are easy to take care of, and they are inexpensive!

Gerbils are fun to watch and they are almost exactly like hamsters!

I love gerbils but if one dies it can annoying

16Horses

People think horses are expensive but their not really. I have a horse and all you really have to pay for is their feed and a bag can last almost a month. What money you do pay is definitely worth it horses are so lovable! My pony follows me around when I go in the field and snuffles me as well which is so nice and tickly. I have such a great bond with my pony and I would NEVER dream of selling her. I can't believe horses are only 12th they are definitely the gbest pets, along with cats and dogs!

I absolutely adore horses, they're beautiful, useful, and actually quite intelligent. I would advise you do your research before taking in a horse because they take quite a bit of work to keep them healthy, but they will practically pay for themselves if used correctly. You must take very good care of them, otherwise they may end up costing you more than you can afford in vet bills, but if given the proper care, they really aren't as expensive as people think.

I'm surprised this wasn't added until now! Horses are quite common on farms. :) Anyway, I don't live at a farm, but I'm getting a horse. They don't cost as much as people think. Only about as much as a cellphone monthly. - Splashstorm

Great 4 kids and tame with kids!

17Ferrets

I think that they are very sweet animals and I would love to own one someday! I've went to a pet store and got to hold one, and it acted like a cat and looked like one too. If you like a playful yet gentle animal, I recommend you get a Ferret!

I love ferrets! I am a ferret freak! They are so cute and they are awesome pets for an adult with work because if you go to work early in the morning, you could wake up a little bit earlier like thirty minutes to forty five or more and you play with your ferret till it's time to go! Ferrets love attention and they sleep sixteen to twenty hours in the day time.

I am surprised no one has added this yet. They are so adorable and fun to be around. They always love playing games with you. I want one super bad and they are my favorite animal

Did you know that people used to use ferrets to hunt rabbits?

18Frogs

Frogs are very cute and easy to take care of and they're great pets! Just because they have slimy skin doesn't mean they're gross or scary. They're actually very friendly and fun!

I have a dumpy tree frog and I love her shes amazing! Shes really pretty and loves be held shes really nice, loves to be held, and very easy to take care of! :D

Frogs are so cute and they make great pets! There are so many kinds of frogs so you can really make sure that it is a great species of frog for you. They are very fun! They are not gross or slimy, either.

My favorite animal - Frisk

19Hedgehogs

No offense to all of those ferret lovers out there, but how are ferrets better than hedgehogs? These little ones are adorable and pretty easy to manage, the only problem is that it's hard to take them on vacation to temperatures they're not used to. But who wouldn't want to petsit these sweet little bundles of joy? I'd pay to!

Hedgehogs are adorable and easy fun pets to have I want to get one so badly but I just got some new pets so I need to wait until they are settled in

The most cutest pet in the whole world very affectionate! I love Them because they funny and intelligent!

I love hedgehogs

20Sugar GliderThe sugar glider is a small, omnivorous, arboreal, and nocturnal gliding possum belonging to the marsupial infraclass.

I 100 percent agree with you! As a matter of fact, I'm trying to get my parents to let me have one! So far its not working to well. I love Sugar Gliders

Amazing is the only word I can possibly think of to describe sugar gliders. They are relatively cheaper than a dog or a cat and don't need to be taken to the veterinarian as often.

I have a sugar glider she is the sweetest thing the only thing that is bad about having her is that I have 6 other curious much larger pets that could eat her

Sugar gliders are awesome! We have one!
