Top Ten Best Pets11111
The Top Ten
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.
I've got two dogs at home and I think they're perfect other than their fighting but I think dogs are the most popular pets because they are very loyal and definitely love people most of the time so why are they our favourite I see most people were like cats but dogs and then cat and they all look so different Reptiles and junk but I think dogs are the best of them allV 390 Comments
I voted for cats because for one thing, I'm a cat person (obviously). But not just that, we have had tons of cats and dogs throughout my lifetime and I can say from experience that cats are better and JUST PLAIN EASIER. Going on vacation? Just leave out cat food, water and a litterbox and you're good to go! Whereas with a dog you have to hire someone to let them out multiple times a day and some dogs have separation anxiety or are just plain naughty so they destroy your house. What about cost-wise? I don't pay for the vet bills because I'm 14 but my mom says that cats are WAY cheaper. The larger the dog, the more expensive the food, medicine, boarding etc. Plus, if you're cats are indoor cats (like ours) they really don't need flea and tick medicine. Cats take up a lot less space than dogs, although little dogs are an exception. Cats are a lot less demanding of your attention than dogs, although Siamese cats (like ours) are VERY demanding. Because cats all come in almost the same ...more
Reasons to get a cat:
They don't have to go outside to use the bathroom.
They don't have to be taken on walks.
They don't require as much attention.
They can do tricks (I have seen many people saying only dogs do tricks. This is false, many cats, including my own, can do tricks).
They can sit on laps (only small dogs can do this).
They can catch mice and bugs.
They are much easier to take care of.
They don't jump on you all the time (I know that not all dogs do this, but many do).
Also, for those of you saying cats can't save lives, there have been many stories about cats saving lives, including one where a cat saved their owner from a seizure!
All in all, cats are just amazing, and I encourage you to vote for cats.
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 have two cats of my own. One is an outdoor hunter the other is an indoor loving machine. I used to have a dog but once my little brother was born he was allergic so we had to give her away. We got cats after that and we all loved them. They are way easier to take care of. Plus, everything for cats are less expensiveV 267 Comments
So sweet fun and great for kids
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!
Guinea pigs are easy to take care of
They like to squeak and purr
They need a large space
They need exercise
They are not like hamsters Because hamsters need exercise wheel but guinea pigs not
Guinea pigs are great begginer pets
And great with childrens over 6 years old
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.V 91 Comments
Rabbits are amazing for family and kids and adults which make them in my opinion the best pets they are destructive but I love rabbits to play or to cuddle just like a baby
Rabbits are the best
I love bunnies
For me rabbits are like so cool and very playful although they are destructiveV 101 Comments
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
As a ichphiophobic that made me very angry
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 love fish. A lot of people think they are boring, but they are awesome! I love saltwater reef tanks, I got a few clown fish, a blue hippo tang, some assorted snails and crabs, and a yellow tang. I got 2 pieces of coral too. I just stated this tank 2 weeks ago so it doesn't have much in it so far.V 46 Comments
I've had two hamsters and have both escaped, they are amazing pets, but I advise getting a Syrian hamster not a Russian or other as Syrian hamsters are a lot friendlier, tamer, cuter and funny.
Hamsters are furry, soft, and very cute! Not Scruffy though... (my hamster)
What is that picture?
Hamsters are cute and easy to take care of, but if you don't care for them in the right way, they just die. I've had like, four hamsters and I took great care of them but three of them died after two weeks. One of them lasted a month or two, though, because he had an expensive cage.V 69 Comments
I have a turtle myself and they are so easy to take care of and I am just ten!
Turtles are so cute they are not slow and they are amazing you don’t always need to feed them
I like turtles
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!V 38 Comments
I have budgies (parakeets) and they are so cute
I had one bird, then he flew out the door... - codgtamk34
I love parrots, all types the big ones and the small ones
Birds are much more intelligent than people give them credit for. My cockatiel and green cheek conure can do more tricks than most dogs! Keeping birds as pets is not cruel. These birds were bred in captivity, and cannot survive in the wild. It would be cruel to set them free because it would get eaten by a predator or freeze in the winter, or starve to death. As long as they're allowed to fly around the house every day (wing clipping is wrong), are interacted with, and have a good sized cage with lots of toys for when you're not home to supervise them (for their safety), pet birds can be very happy. Birds are extremely affectionate and bond deeply with their owners. My cockatiel even asks to be scratched when he bows his head down!V 68 Comments
Best pets ever you can watch them, play with them and they are just cute!
Leopard geckos for life! Please subscribe to saph party ( my gecko's Chanel )
Bearded dragons are personally my favorite because they are friendly and good with kids, They are kind and playful. Lepord geckos are good pets too because they are noctournal so they don't need too much attention but they are so cute and lovable.
Bearded dragons are amazing
And can be playful
Chinchillas are the most fluffy animal and it is so cute
They are sooo fluffy. I wish they were at leasy third place
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
Not easy to take care of, they require a constant room temperature or else they die, they need LOTS of space, and volcanic ash to roll in. DO NOT get one of these of you are uneducated. I don't think they should even be pets, they're so high maintenance. - SassyEquineV 49 Comments
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 like dogs the most but I voted them to get them higher. They should be top 10 in my opinion. - IsaacM
Rats are easily the best rodents to keep as pets.
They are docile, affectionate, low maintenance and cute.
Rats are the best pets exceeded in affection only by dogs, which are much higher maintenance and often aggressive (unlike rats).
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 meV 85 Comments
Tortise are a,axing I have one and he is awesome they are fun to play with and live for long times I bet longer life then any other animal on this list
Tortoises are calm great and easy to take care of
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!
Having a tortoise is kind of stressful sometimes but they are really cute and super fun to play with and you can teach them tricks (at least that's what I've heard, mine doesn't know any).V 4 Comments
Snakes are amazing I think they should be one 1
My mom said I could have a snake when I am ten. I really think that corn snakes are the best
Ye most people are scared of mine but shes nicer than most cats!
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!V 30 Comments
I am only voting to share my opinion.. I have never owned a hedgehog before, but from what I've heard from a few youtubers (AnimalWonders, etc), is that they need plenty of space, and if they don't.. Well.. Prepare for their enclosure to be covered in poo. Yes, poo. But otherwise (from what I've heard) they can be semi-good pets.
U don't even need to grab up a bug just take the hedgehog to it
I have a hedgehog named Louis.
He's sooo cute as cute as a new born baby.
And their sooo easy to take care of.
Yes they bite.Because u've did many bad things in your life
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!V 25 Comments
I think that horses are the best animals in the world people vote on horses
There is massive opportunity for cosplay involving horses. But have you ever seen someone on a horse during Halloween? - RubyParagon
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!
Oh, I LOVE horses. In class, kids use to call me "horse girl."V 59 Comments
Ferrets do NOT smell horrible. Ask my ferret. He agrees. He thinks that rabbits and dogs smell bad and dogs are cowardly because he once scared a golden retriever five times his size. Also, he's CUTE. Ferrets deserve the TOP. GO FERRETS!
They smell horrible! I'm not kidding!
Their the best flippin animal in the world
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!V 41 Comments
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.
Frogs are the best pets ever! The only cons are they carry salmonella and aquariums are expensive.V 4 Comments
Gerbils are awesome pets. They're like hamsters but easier to care for, more fun to play with and they poop way less
Gerbils are fun to watch and they are almost exactly like hamsters!
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 very active and are fun to watch. They have they're own personalities and are very friendly. They should DEFINITELY be in the top 5V 5 Comments
I believe all animals on this list are amazing, but pigs are spectacular. They love to play and relax and are amazing, plus pigs aren't even my favorite animals so I truly mean this.
Pigs are the best
love pigs - tullyV 14 Comments
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 aren’t mean
Yes they are so nice and cute and I wish I could have one I met someone with one they let me pet it, she was fat though but she was the cutest mice ever. And there was a family of mice in my backyard but the STINKING LANDLORD killed them! - Puppytart
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. - VIPbunny10V 16 Comments
Chickens are adorable, but I love to eat chicken so I wouldn't get one as a pet. In my opinion, if you have a pet, you shouldn't eat the meat of that animal.
Sex is the best
I have 12 cool chickens :) mines love to be petted and they always give free eggs!
They lay wonderful eggs and are as loyal as a dog! They are the most entertaining pets ever! I can't believe these aren't number one! I mean, the eggs they lay pay for the care of the chickens in around a year and taste amazing!V 9 Comments
Love this pet
They are very clean, docile, and love to snuggle. Most beardies only poop in one corner in their cage. And are more easy to potty train them cats. They don't really smell, love to cuddle, and don't have fur to get allergic to. Very low maintence pets. And pretty indestructable too. They can go 3 weeks without food and like forever without water. If you handle your dragon every day then they will love you for the rest of their lives.
My Bearded Dragon died, but he was awesome, he was just on my shoulder when I’m reading
Beardies are very easy to care for. They are easy going, don't bite, and are very aware of what goes on in the room, much like a dog. Very loveable and actually enjoy a snuggle. Good for people with allergies-no hair or dander! Highly recommended, even my 2-year old loves him!V 9 Comments
They may pinch you, but they still are awesome. I have two in the same cage and they get along great so if you get them then you don't have to worry about them eating each other! They are also very cool to watch because the like to climb on the walls of their cage.
I just gotten a Hermit crab like a week ago and I got him a nice big container and so far I just love them my hermit crabs name is herbie thinking of getting a Nother one because I read about how they get lonely.
I have 3 hermit crabs all in one tank it's so fun just to sit and watch how they move and climb and interact with each other they are a great pet in my opinion they should be in the top 10
Hermit crabs are awesome especially if you like arts and crafts because you can make a shell for it I don't know why their called Hermit crabs their very social and funV 10 Comments
They are cute and can do many things for you
Pigeons are very cute and easy to take care they are social birds I have two Pakistani pigeons and there name is alex and blossom
i give them enough time to play I would be correct that we should not keep birds in a cage because it is like destroying a birds life so I am not keeping them in cage
Pigeons are beautiful and make great pets. They come in so many pretty color combinations, although being black and gray and white
Pigeons have no idea whats going on. Its greatV 3 Comments
Not a pet people NOT... A... PET...
They are one of my favorite animals
Not a pet, but they are extremely intelligent and beautiful creatures. My favorite animal by far, but it's illigal to have one as a pet sooo
THEY ARE WILD ANIMALS!
Um no - codgtamk34
Skunks make strange but wonderful pets.
We have one! They're cool!
Skunks are horrible!V 4 Comments
You can get any chameleon at your local pet store. They need a good sized humid and wet cage with a heat light. They do need plant, both artificial and real, to climb on and eat and hide. They change color so it may be hard to find them. They also need plenty of bugs such as crickets to eat.
I love them when they change colors.
OK, you can get one if you WANT to, but they get freaked out easily, get one, hold it, and I would not say the next day it is alive...
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 herV 19 Comments
I found the little baby squirrels at the edge of the street one day and I adopted them so now they come up to our house and we feed them and I love squirrels
For a pet? That ain't right
THEY ARE WILD ANIMALS!
Can you even do that? Pretty sure it's illegal and Where the HECK would you even GET one
THEY ARE WILD ANIMALS YOU can't HAVE PET KANGAROOS! Volunteer at a rescue do not have them as pets.
You can not have a kangaroo as a pet they live in certain places - PatrickStar
You can got a kangaroo they are expensive thoughV 2 Comments
I love cows. Who says they can't love like dogs can? They do! They make great companion animals, along with horses. - SassyEquine
I live on a dairy full of cows and I love every one of them
My aunt has a farm, so I see cows every month - Catacorn
They are awesome and calves are so cuteV 1 Comment
I'm pretty sure they're a protected animal
They are good pets
Gary! would be a great pet lol
I own one and they are very easy to take care. Also when they are moving it is very entertaining.
Easier than worms
Snails are awesome! My brother used to have one! You don't even need to feed it! SO easy to take care of! And cute! But short lifespan ;'( but they have a great life! Like I said! You don't need to buy food! It eats Algie which it pretty much CREATES!V 1 Comment
Cause they are so woolly and cool looking
Alpacas are so cool!
They're great pets, but they cost to much! I agree completely on making this guy number 37.
They sit on your arm, so wonderful
They are very nice to have :)
Just there bite may Hurt '. '
Parrots are pretty mad but they are colourful and beautiful and they are really really really really really really cool! :-)
Vote ducks there good as
Ducks are great pets although never keep 1 duck this is cruel and don't FEED THEM BREAD this is very important it’s bad for them
Sarah and duck
NOT A PET. THESE ANIMALS BELONG IN THE WILD, NOT YOUR TINY BACK YARD. I DON'T CARE IF YOU THINK YOU'RE COOL, THINK OF SOMEONE OTHER THAN YOURSELF FOR ONCE AND CONSIDER THE PAIN AND STRESS YOU'RE PUTTING ON THAT POOR ANIMAL. - SassyEquine
U can not have part lion even if u could it would eat u duh.
Yeah sure you do. Lions are extremely dangerous and if you look away or look away they will snap. You can't ever domesticate a lion, tiger, hyena etc. because they will can turn at any moment.
Yeah, it's sure awesome having a wild creature in your house because it's 'cool'. Dude, you might as well be poaching to keep a pet lion! - Emberflight_of_StormClanV 4 Comments
Tigers make great pets if you raise it well it will become your best friend and will protect you
Do not have pet tigers. They are not meant to pace in a cement cage all day. It is as inhuman to have them as pets as it is to poach them. There as on 3000 left in the wild and if you want to have one as a pet, go volunteer at a rescue center.
Never have a tiger as a pet it breaks my heart and they should be 100 or off the list they are left in the wild not in a small cage in your back yard go watch BigCatRescues videos and you will change your mind about even considering the idea in the back of your head!
NOT A PET. IF YOU HAVE A TIGER AS A " PET" THEN I HAVE LOST ALL RESPECT FOR YOU. - SassyEquineV 13 Comments
Wolf dogs are the perfect choice when you love dogs and wolves. A wolfdog is that perfect mix in between them both.
How tasty did your friend look? LOL! - DasyInYou
My grandfather used to own one, He was the most amazing pet! He was extra protective and extra sweet. He was gentle around my little sister and I when we were little, I'd definitely suggest this animal as a pet!
I own a wolf dog. it is a great pet, but it tried to eat my friend!V 5 Comments
Newts aren't bad there like salamanders
Tarantulas are the best pets to have because they are really, really awesome to have. I have a tarantula and she is great. MY Chilean Rose is very docile and she loves me a lot and never bites ever. That's why they are lovely to have. And that's that's why in my opinion they are number 1
There like really small dogs
No offense taken when you said they were "harry"
I love spiders!V 1 Comment
I love finger monkeys
Ahh so cute I really want 1
This id a how to get a murdering pet list not a safe pet list! - DasyInYou
Okay, there are many stereotypes, but my grandma lives by a swamp on new Orleans, and I can guarantee you, as soon as a gator aces out, the entire dam street spent come out for two hours after he's gone
Alligators are very dangerous and are wild animals, not pets. My mother rescued one as a child, but he was still wild at heart and returned there after rehabilitation. They do not make very good pets.
I agree with the person who said don't get them. They are wild and are meant to be in the wild.V 3 Comments
There actually not that unusual as pets
These are my fave animal ever! Wish I had one.
Aaa huh they’re so lovable! I love the ears it makes it even cuter! - IceFoxPlayz
I don't have one, and they may be hard to take care of, but their cute factor is like 2000% outta 100! Come on, look at those EARS! And that itty bitty nosey nose! And those adorable big black shiny EYES! AWW! 1! 11!V 3 Comments
Right, so lions bobcats hippopotamuses jaguars are ok pets! how about crocodiles or komodo dragons or black widow spiders or box jelly fish! sound safe? No! plus the clue id in the name WILD animals should be in the..? hmmm that's a hard one... let me think about it... its on the tip of my toung... oh, I've got it! IN THE WILD! - DasyInYou
I love bobcats but sadly you can't have them as pets but I do. I have a pet wild cat
Bob cats really that's as bad as a lion even though they are cute
They are beautiful, but I find it inhumane to have them as a pet. - Emberflight_of_StormClanV 2 Comments
I like groupamouly
