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

2Cats

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'.

Cats are one of the greatest pets there is. They are fun and loving especially when act funny.

3Guinea Pigs

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

I had one and he was the best, super smart animals. Mine was grate with dogs. They don't cost a lot. Mine was only ten dollars. Wish they were number 1! They are so cute

They are so chubby and cute! I have a Guinea pig named Lucas (I used to have one named George so if you put them together, it would be "George Lucas," the creator of Star Wars.) He's the sweetest! - Ku

4RabbitsRabbits 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.

When trained properly, rabbits can learn tricks and even use the litter box. I've owned many rabbits, primarily mini rexes. Each one has had a unique personality. One would even hop to the door when someone arrived so she could greet them. Our current rabbits know the Commands "beg" "down" "up" and "bedtime". And rabbits can be very loyal. Our oldest rabbit loves to get pets from all of us, but she greets my dad as if she knows she was his present. When my bunny passed away, her mom and sister grieved. They were lethargic and had tears dried on their faces. So, overall, bunnies can be very complicated, but given the right care they can make outstanding family members

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

6Hamsters

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

Hamsters are not stupid, they are cute animals!

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

Birds are so cool! They can talk!

8Lizards

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!

9Rats

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,

10Turtles

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!

They are wild animals! If you want to have one,be a zookeeper of a wildlife rehabitator.

The Contenders

11Chinchillas

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

(does not know what Chinchillas are) (reads comments) (does not know what Chinchillas look like) YOU SHOULD GET ONE OF THESE

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

I can't get one because I have a rabbit and plan on getting a two rats and the snake would want to eat them but snakes are nice pets I just don't like feeding them live or dead animals because it is hard to watch especially with the live ones.

Worst pet ever

14Mice

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.

Mice are totally better than rats. Duh dud duh

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

16Ferrets

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

Ferrets are so awesome and cute - ChaunceyButler

17Horses

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

I love horses don't have any but I used to go to camp at Grace Adventures Horse man ship it is amazing just like horses

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.

Sometimes frogs hop in my pond. They are very exciting! - Ku

19Sugar Glider

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!

20Hedgehogs

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!

Hedgehogs are so cute.
