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'!

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.
Rabits are awesomeV 81 Comments
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
I have two guinea pigs and they are adorable pets, there names are west and papa west is brown with a bit of white and papa is pretty much all golden if I had to pick my favourite it would be west.V 82 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
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
I love fish, great pet to have they should be number oneV 43 Comments
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
They are sooo cute and fuzzy!V 56 Comments
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!
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.
Birds are cooler than dogs and cats in my opinion. Can you teach your dog full sentences? I think not. I have a bird and I love him SO much. He and I have a strong bond together. Birds Rule!V 63 Comments
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.
I think they an awesome pet because they love to have a fun and nice time with you.V 22 Comments
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.
YA WOO GO TURTLES! - TurtleKittenV 35 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 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.
Very goodV 72 Comments
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
You're so cute you have to see themV 48 Comments
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!
Tortoises are really nice, and if you
Get a turtoise or a snake or a ferret
Kids will be growing up with a pet
Which teaches them responsibility.
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!
Gerbils should be #1! Because they are: 1. Cute! Awesome! Coolawesomecool!
2. Easy to care for, they pretty much only need food water love and a mate to keep him/her company! 3. Entertaining! They run around here, run around there, and I could watch a gerbil all day!
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
So cool wish I had oneV 54 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!
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. - VIPbunny10
Mice are easy to take care of and you can teach them tricks. They come in many different colors and love there owners.V 13 Comments
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
They shouldn't be pet's but free! But then again there so cute!V 23 Comments
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!
My mom had a hedgehog as a kid and she loved him. I always wanted a hedgehog and they're really cute!V 20 Comments
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
There the loveliest and funniest pet in the world!V 35 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 5 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 her

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.

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!
I have 4 chickens, (3 hens, 1 rooster). I love them, the hens lay eggs FOR FREE! They have cute patterns on their feathers. Chickens will eat the grass and critters that roam around in your yard, not to mention, they are such wonderful and entertaining pets. - Catacorn
I love chickens!V 5 Comments
I have a passion for monkeys, especially finger monkeys, but you need to understand and read up on them before you take one home.
YOU can't KEEP WILD ANIMALS AS PETS. It's awful that we would snatch them from the wild and keep them cooped up in a cage. If you want a pet monkey or tiger, volunteer at a rescue center.
I love monkeys but I wish I had 1
OK, no offense, but I think monkeys are wild, and should never be kept as pets...V 3 Comments
I have one and its awesome
They are easy fun and cute
This goes in the frog category
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!
Go berdies! I have a sixth moth old Beardie at home and I have to say, I love him! He's a foot and a third already and still growing! although, he can get a little smelly at times, he still is my sweet boy. When I first got him, I almost thought he would be like a wild lizard without a real distinguished personality, boy, was I wrong! He loves to curl up on the couch like a dog for naps, explore, and be down right mischievous! I would advise this pet to anyone who has dog or cat allergies and would like a sweet animal to curl up in their lap occasionally and add a little spice to their life!
A dragon that has a beard! That's another story but an awesome one
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 poolV 6 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
I had a hermit crab when I was a baby, #numberoneV 10 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...
We have one! They're cool!
Skunks are horrible!
Skunks make strange but wonderful pets.

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!
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 soooV 2 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
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! :-)
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!
They are cute but violent - PatrickStar
I wish I had one but its illegal in my state :( - venomouskillingmachineV 10 Comments
Cause they are so woolly and cool looking
Alpacas are so cool!
Sarah and duck
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_StormClan
Uh uh! *shakes head*
I do have a passion for big cats,
But that, I say, is for keeping them free,
Freedom! I know, they ARE cute!
But if you have one, they will escape
And eventually get shot by a somebody who is
Scared or even animal patrol.
Groundhog are awesome because they dig for youV 1 Comment
I didn't know millipedes could be pets?
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!
The are very dangerous but cool and to me they are protective to their ownerV 4 Comments
Goats are the best, if you pay attention and neuter the males on time. The males will start to smell and act more aggressive. I know this first hand, I was feeding my goats one day when the large male of my herd charges me into the fence! If you don't breed goats, I would advise neutering as soon as possible if you have a male as a pet. Females are generally good natured and kids are playful and just fun to watch! Anyone with a good backyard and the time to care for one should have a goat!
I think there furry and there friendly!
+ they are not scared of humans!
You see on farms... Why not at your house
They are basically lawnmowers. Entertainment, and also cuddyV 1 Comment
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.
I agree with the one below me Alligators are the worst pets everV 2 Comments
Pure wolves are wild animals, but they when they become part of your pack, there is no getting rid of them nor would you want them to, they are very protective, loyal, and smart. Fun Fact: Unless if you bother a wolf, he won't eat you unless if you intrude on his territory, otherwise, he'll just run.
I had an Arctic wolf mix. He was the most loving and the most amazing dog that I've ever had in my life. He was the complete opposite of a wolf. A lover.. Not a fighter.
I have a wolf that I have raised from three weeks old and she has been a better pet than any dog I have ever had.
Wolves are the best protector for everyone!V 6 Comments
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!
Don't KEEP WILD ANIMALS AND SAY THEY ARE PETS CAUSE they're NOT!
I wish I had one!
they are the cutest pets in my opinion
I love sheep! The thought of it makes my gecko lightnings little tummy soft!
