Top Ten Best Pets
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 all
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
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.
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.
I've had my fair share of cats in my life (More than 40 in total) and they have been on my top five list on my favorite animals ( they're #1) they are A LOT easier than dogs and I've had my fair share of those as well.
The best pet for life!
Aw rabbits with floppy ears are the best - Jeheffiner
I lost one of my little guinea pigs today. She was killed by a dog that escaped into our back yard. She was a little angel though. Totally recommend them if you want a small, reliable, trusty little pet who is guaranteed to make you smile and laugh. - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior
@oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior I am really sorry to hear that.
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.
They don't give a crap about anything. If they get attacked or hit by an object or another fish they will just move on. They can't get bored, they can't cry, get angry, or run away they are just pure savage.
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
Sarah Hyland has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
Debby Ryan has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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?
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
Birds are cool I take photos of them sometimes - trains45
They poop and coo a lot, some live near our window my father get woken up by coo, coo.
Ducks are nice to take photos of - trains45
Vote ducks there good as
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!
Brenda Song has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
Turtles are so cute they are not slow and they are amazing you don’t always need to feed them
I have a turtle myself and they are so easy to take care of and I am just ten!
Leopard gecko life
I have two lizards
Love this pet
Best pets ever you can watch them, play with them and they are just cute!
Love them so much!
Chinchillas are the most fluffy animal and it is so cute
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!
Zendaya has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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
Rats Are the cutest most misunderstood animal that is cute why do people hate on them 1. They Hate cheese 2. They are really clean 3. Their faces are so cute when they boggle
Rats eat cheese
Cutest Reptiles ever tortises are really good pets if you take good care of them
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
Bella Thorne has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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 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.
Britney Spears has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
U don't even need to grab up a bug just take the hedgehog to it
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!
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!
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!
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
Horses are my favorite animals
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 think that horses are the best animals in the world people vote on horses
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 have two and they are the cutest things, the male we have is Pepper he is black and the other we have is Cinnamon she's brown.
Very Cool animals I don't support ferret hunting but they are very naughty
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!
Cutest animals they are really awesome pets for basically anyone with experience.
Sabrina Carpenter has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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
Like Chinchillas + Guinea Pigs + Mice the cute rodent can chew a lot though
Laura Marano has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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!
Pigs all I have heard of are amazing. Anyone who disagrees is crazy. However much I love dogs they bark, pigs only snort which sounds better then a loud bark everything about a pig is adorable please vote pigs.
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
Best pet very good mice my 3 girls are living the life in a 6 feet fish tank but people keep them in tiny cages made of wire.
Mice are just so fun to have!
Vanessa Morgan has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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!
Its funny how they just hide
Sofia Carson has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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.
Victoria Justice has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
Skunks make strange but wonderful pets.
We have one! They're cool!
Skunks are horrible!
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
Fluffy! Very Fluffy like chinchillas.
Annelise Van Der Pol has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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
Nicole Anderson has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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
Lindsay Lohan has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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...
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 though
Madison Pettis has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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
Lucy Hale has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
Cause they are so woolly and cool looking
Alpacas are so cool!
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_StormClan
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!
They are cute but violent - PatrickStar
Kelsey Chow has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
Newts aren't bad there like salamanders
Ariel Winter has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
These are my fave animal ever! Wish I had one.
There actually not that unusual as pets
Kimberly J. Brown has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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
Their awesome their supposed to be like little dogs and their tarantulas so they should be with tarantulas
Rowan Blanchard has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
I love finger monkeys
Ahh so cute I really want 1
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.
Yes, they are great but better in the wild.
Chelsea Staub has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
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_StormClan
China Anne McClain has one ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon
My dad is a farmer and we own sheep and we get all the orphans and they're so fluffy
I love sheep! The thought of it makes my gecko lightnings little tummy soft!
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.
Now wolves this doesn't seem like a pet list... it seems like a list of animals that shouldn't be pets, dangerous animals and endangered animals! - DasyInYou
Pointless. I'm eleven, so I know. Get a beta instead. Much better. I have one in a ten gallon with a mystery snail and six other fish (look at lists to see what fish go best:
Pointless but everyone wants them when they are kids. - ozzydog12
I'm eleven but I still think there cool very very cool NEVER GROW UP
So scary and creppy ugly gross nasty
I had camel spirders ther good
Ants are awesome! They are great and easy pets.
They are very easy to take care off
Rats never rats are dusting
Rats should be first on this list! They are like dogs for kids who can't have them!
Zophobases (giant MealworMs) make great pets. I have some myself.
WORMS SHOULD BE #1 they are so simple just make a cool bowl into a masterpiece and also THEY ARE SO SQUISHY
Worms do not deserve to be 4 just saying
Woo worms awesome they should be #4!
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 LOVE GOATS! I've been to the Columbus zoo in OH. I have so much fun with them! I am begging my parents to get me a pygmy goat!
I think there furry and there friendly!
+ they are not scared of humans!
They are basically lawnmowers. Entertainment, and also cuddy
They are lovely animals, very intelligent, it does take a while to tame then, but when they are tame they can be very playful around you instead of being scared of you like when you first got them.
They are cute and small
They are awesome lizard they are the best
Oh yeah! My baby leopard gecko will love you even more!
They're great pets! This should be number 7.
Make this number one
Oh yes most dangrous land animal as pet - lemur
HIPPOS aren't PETS! - DasyInYou
Oh, yeah, brilliant! Let's all own an endangered, massive, sharp-toothed wildcat in our house! Sounds safe and humane, right? - Emberflight_of_StormClan
Never! Jaguars shouldn't even be on the list! It is mean to keep a wild animal as a pet! They should be erased from this list forever!
No they are wild animals that belong to nature some pets on here are suitable but not this SO NEVEr!
Jaguars are endangered species so no they would not make good pets - Mcgillacuddy
These are strange, yet adorable creatures that are fairly easy, they are not good for social interaction though because you can't touch them but are great for science labs!
1 copper, 1 melanoid, 1 albino, 1 leucistic, 1 wildtype, 1 golden. Can never get bored of them so entertaing. So exotic and you need to get them if you haven't got. Get them if you are thinking about getting something aquatic. Forget fish, forget newts, get an axolotl!
I disagree I have a female crayfish and I have had her for like 3 months now. I hade 2 her and a male but I gave it to my friend for a red backed salamander. I THINK SHES PREGNANT!
I have two crayfish, and they are extremely easy to take care of. The one that is almost grown up is so cool when she moves her rocks around, and the baby one is so cute.
