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 have a boxer and they are the SWEETEST little guys ever. Dogs are the best that's that cats literally scare me and I had to go to the HOSPITAL once because cats are haters of humans. Dogs save so many lives and there are service dogs police dogs etc. Also just companion dogs what do cats do?V 373 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
I know a lot of people see cats as evil psychopaths that don't care about you and just attack and he a pest for no reason but most cats are friendly you just have to get to know them first. My cat is so sweet even when I wasn't very nice to her at first she somehow seems to find the good in people and I just didn't even see how this was possible in cats and people think it's unique to dogs. They are often seen as the villian. And yeah there are a lot of old nasty cats but this is only around 5 percent of cats and if they are like that just leave them alone there probably just bored of life
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.
Cats are cute and cuddly plus they make purrfect outdoor and indoor pets. The "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 colors and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated. They are highly intelligent and good at problem solving.V 260 Comments
Rabbits are amazing I had 2 but sadly I had to get rid of them do t the fact that my house is full of to many other pets but in that year I had them their amazing though their a lot of work
My rabbit was a scaredy-face and he was scared of Sparky when he first came to the house even though the cat was smaller than he was. And Oreo (the bunny) never let anyone play with him. I hope he likes his new owners more...
PS, we gave him away because we couldn't take care of him anymore, not 'cause he was boring. - Firemist
Aw rabbits with floppy ears are the best - Jeheffiner
Used to walk mine on a leash - blackflowerV 93 Comments
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 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 the best there a lot better than bunnys
Guinea pigs are THE BEST!V 90 Comments
As a ichphiophobic that made me very angry
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
They are so easy to take care of! - AliciaMae
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.V 46 Comments
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.
Love the picture - Mr_Zebra24
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 animalsV 66 Comments
I had one bird, then he flew out the door... - codgtamk34
I love parrots, all types the big ones and the small ones
I love dogs, guinea pigs and birds. Calling someone birdbrain should not be a insult, because birds have a impressing cleverness. There are lots of types with diferent colors, vocalizations, friendliness and sizes, so everybody has tons of variety when chosing one. They can be trained to do nice tricks and can fly! My heart melts when watching lovely parakeets, cockatiels, cockatoos, parrots, conures, macaws, finches, canaries... And you can play a lot with them and scratch their heads!
Yes, they can scream, but because they want more attention.
Yes, they bite, because you deserved hurting or taunting it.
Yes, they need big cages, because they need room to fly and play.
Yes, they need pellets, seeds, fruits and vegetables, but you need variety in your diet as well.
Yes, they need to be trained, because they need mental stimultation and taming.
I'm gonna get a pet quaker parrot in some months. Plenty research and time, but birds are the best.
Fluffy adorable balls that are of low maintenance and are as intelligent as a baby? I'm in!V 67 Comments
I have a turtle myself and they are so easy to take care of and I am just ten!
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!
They are wayy cute. I love turtles. Turtles are the best pets on earth. How could they possibly only be number 9 ont he listV 37 Comments
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
3 leopard geckos, all cute
LizardZ ARE AWSOME! Keep bugs out of the house and love to Explore. LIZARDS ROCK!V 29 Comments
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. - SassyEquine
Chinchillas are the bestV 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
Ideal for children 8 & up
Will enjoy a cage mate
Intelligent, can learn tricks
Lives 3 to 5 years State and local regulations may vary. Pricing may vary by store location. PetSmart stores cannot match the price below for this pet. Ask a store associate for details.
Fancy rats enjoy living together in pairs. It is best to house two females together, as two males may become territorial. They are the smartest of all small pets, and can learn their names and simple tricks. They have tons of energy and are really fun to watch. Fancy rats enjoy running on wheels and in exercise balls. Calm, curious and fun-loving, fancy rats love to play and interact with their Pet Parents.
1. Rats are clean and cute
4. Saved the universe, becoming the strongest avenger.
Rats are the best. They need to be in the top 3. So many people are weird about them but they are the best. They have personalities and will cuddles you and do everything to try and love on you. They are the bestV 83 Comments
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).
Tortoises are the BEST PETS IN THE WHOLE FREAKED WORLD!V 3 Comments
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!
Snakes are amazing. Religions, books, and movies do them no good by portraying these awesome animals as evil. Actually, they only attacking if scared or angered, and most snakes are actually pretty cute. Also very simple to care for, and unique creatures
Snakes grow big sometimes and like to crawl around you and it feel like leather or somethingV 27 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
Cute and not too hard to own, only if you are okay with picking up inscects with your bare handsV 26 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
Ferrets should be like, third on this list. GO FERRETS! GO GO GO!V 40 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
Pigs are the best! You can teach them tricks! And no they are not dirty like everyone says. You can train them to be potty trained too. They are very friendly and affectionate. They are nice are kids and wouldn't hurt them! I would very much recommend a pig!
Pigs are the cutest animals! They also are the smartest pets. They can learn tricks faster than dogs! I really want a little teacup pig, but obviously no one wants a pig in the house. They are very loyal and loving animals. They are also usually pink! All pigs aren't always dirty and covered with mud! Only when you let them. They also don't shed usually or at least not much. They are a fabulous pet.
They are friendly and cute! And clean! I make up little cartoon characters and most of them are pigs, like: agent Friendly, Sheldon, Loof, and Lawn.V 10 Comments
Mice aren’t mean
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!
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 15 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!
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...
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
''Sex is the best''
Get off this website you pervert
I have 12 cool chickens :) mines love to be petted and they always give free eggs!V 9 Comments
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 great they will just chill out on you're shoulder and they will let you pet them any ages can have them and they have fun all day long plus who dosn't like to watch a lizard swim in a pool
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 8 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
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
Beavers are so cute and adorable. They are might favorite animals and I think they should be number 1. Someday I want to get one as a pet.
Why do everyone wants to keep wild animals as pets! Be a zookeeper to keep wild animals
They will ear you trees
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 great
Awesome pets, remember to ADOPT one.V 2 Comments
Um no - codgtamk34
Skunks make strange but wonderful pets.
We have one! They're cool!
Skunks are horrible!V 4 Comments
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!
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
THEY ARE WILD ANIMALS YOU can't HAVE PET KANGAROOS! Volunteer at a rescue do not have them as pets.
Can you even do that? Pretty sure it's illegal and Where the HECK would you even GET one
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
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! :-)
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!
Sarah and duck
I didn't know millipedes could be pets?
Tigers make great pets if you raise it well it will become your best friend and will protect you
NOT A PET. IF YOU HAVE A TIGER AS A " PET" THEN I HAVE LOST ALL RESPECT FOR YOU. - SassyEquine
Gucci gang all the way
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.V 13 Comments
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!
Awesome, yet dangerous! - SplashstormV 4 Comments
Who would want a pet spider? They are super creepy ( my worst fear )
Why not! Spiders are creepy and cute! Just read charlotte's web!
I had a daddy long leg and it was so cool RIP felix
Spiders are tarantulasV 4 Comments
I would love an owl! I would also like my acceptance letter to hogwarts but sadly nither are going to happen in my lifetime! - DasyInYou
If I had a hawk why not a owl they are probably easy and also adorable and eat mice so not rodents in your yard
You can't have owls as pets.
Owls are so cuteV 1 Comment
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
There actually not that unusual as pets
Aaa huh they’re so lovable! I love the ears it makes it even cuter! - IceFoxPlayz
These are my fave animal ever! Wish I had one.
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

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
