Top Ten Best Pets

The Top Ten
1 Dogs The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore. It is active all around the world, and is one of the most popular domestic pets as of 2021. They come in more than 350 breeds.

Over tens of thousands of years dogs and humans have literally become genetically designed to be companions to each other. No other animal, not even cats, are this close to humans. We have hunted with and shared our beds with dogs for at least 40,000 years. Cats were first domesticated 4,000 years ago in Egypt. Pretty long time but not long enough to become as genetically attached to humans as dogs are.

They have really big hearts and r only agresive if you teach them 2 B. Great company and seem 2 know when you need a cuddle. I think a mixed breed is the best because they don't get 2 many health problems, for example, I have a cavalier and his eyes pop out so it is easy 4 him 2 jget things in it, he had 2 have his eye removed because it got some grass in and went round the back setting up an infection, they can also have heart murmurs where as my grandparents had a cross and he never got ill, he died old and only because he got hit by a car so, although pedigrees r lovely, I would reccomend a cross breed.

I also have 2budgies and they're fantastic 2,

Thanks 4 reading

I voted for dogs simply because they are the best! They have every quality possible! They have such great and diverse personalities. Cats just in my opinion kind of lack personality. And no dog has the same personality. Trust me. I have 5 dogs and they're all so different! One is my HUGE labradoodle who's 100 pounds.mhe isn't very smart but he is the sweetest dog I've ever met. He looks big and scary but he's a huge softie and lays his head on you. He also hates water, unlike my other dog who's also MUCH smaller. This dig is also easily 10 times for dignified than the big doofus. He throws up IN A TRASHCAN, maybe you didn't need to know that but still. He is very smart and can be trained to do many things. All of my other dogs are different too but the one thing they have in common, is they are the most caring animals on this earth. They're the one thing that loves YOU more than they love themselves. And that's a fact

If you don't have a dog you won't understand. I've seen that the people in the cat comments are getting triggered because of there past experiences with dogs. If you haven't lived with a dog you just don't understand. I love my dogs and they can become your best friend. I get what they can hurt people but it's not there fault it's there owners fault. Dogs them selves are more loyal,lovable, cutest animals ever! If your ever sad they can make you happy. If your bored there always up to play. Dogs are the best pets ever!

2 Cats 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.

I like dogs but cats are so much better. They need food, water, petting, a litter box and that's about it! Cts cost less money and live longer. Cats are shy to people but don't usally care about when you leave them as long as they have food and water. Cats are easier to pick up and easier to cut thei nails. One thing people do to cats is declaw them. It is anoying and it should be stopped because what if they're in a fight with a dog or even another cat? They only have their strong teeth and that's a last resort so why don't people declaw dogs? I don't know! Cats are just simpley amazing and have always been a part of my life. I taught my cat how to sit, stay and lay down. See? Cats are smart and cats are way more funny and always cheer you up with their purring and make you happy. Cats can save lives as well and if a cat had a fight with a germen shepherd and the cat was as big as the shepherd, who would win? Cats have sharper claws and sharper teeth and their saliva can infect! Cats ...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.

More people die from dogs than cats and I don't think cats have ever killed anyone just injured people. cats are more family friendly and no breed is dangerous.

also I never liked cats until we got ours my opinion on them quickly changed and they became my favourite pet maybe animal. just give them a try

Cats are great pets I have one at home they are cute and easy to care if you are looking for a pet for you and for your kids I would get a cat. Dogs are stupid all the time people don't know much about cats. Cats are great pets. So get one. Cats do bite but they don't bite hard and it tickles you no bite marks and you won't go to the hospital.cats do claw on thing it doesn't destroy your stuff and they are nice to you and give you a a lot of attention. But you can't tell a cat what to do unless it really wants to do it. A cat will come back if let outside. A cat is clean if you want to get a pet that is clean and less work a cat can do it if you say dogs are man best friend its not true they can bite and jump on you. Cats are quiet and cute and they are funny when they run around.
I hope you agree

3 Guinea Pigs The guinea pig, also called the cavy or domestic guinea pig, is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia.

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 such good pets. They are adorable their little faces are so cute! My guinea pigs are very entertaining. They look really cute when they lay on their side it's really funny. When you're holding them they try to jump out of your arms and onto your shoulder

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.

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

4 Rabbits Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world. Rabbits are known for having long ears, and for being agile, as in having a notable ability to jump.

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.

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

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.

Rabbits are fun pets it's great to put dandline leaves in a line next to there basket they will eat them until they get to the last one which will be in the basket and then shut the door quickly

5 Fish

Many species of aquarium fish are more intelligent than people give them credit for. Goldfish do not have a 3 second memory and can remember things up to 5 months as well as recognize their owners. Betta fish have unique personalities and can be taught many tricks.

They're not boring- find the fish you like- they have plenty of personality. My oscars are like puppies and greet me when I enter their room! Most fish are easy to take care of, but less easy than some people may think. They don't have short lifespans if they're properly taken care of (please do research to give them their best life). Fishkeeping isn't for everyone, but if you decide it is, beware- it's addicting. One tank can quickly turn into a whole room full of 'em.

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

This is barely a pet really. Fish in my opinion are the worst pet. They just sit in their tank doing nothing all day. All you can do is look at them and feed them. There is basically no point of having a fish. You should just let it free into the ocean so it can swim around in big spaces and be happy, instead of a small tank.

6 Hamsters Hamsters are rodents belonging to the subfamily Cricetinae. The subfamily contains about 25 species, classified in six or seven genera.

What? Your hamster lasted a month or 2? And that one was the one that lived the longest? What the hell did you do to your hamsters?! The average lifespan of a hamster is 2 years... Well maybe they were sick or something was wrong with them when u bought them
and in the beginning, hamsters are not easy to take care of. and they only bite when you provoke them. watch Victoria Raechel (a hamster channel). I don't know about after youve had them for a while tho it gets easier

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.

I think hamsters are a great pet to have because you have to be really responsible. Also they are cute and friendly, but if you keep pestering the hamster it will bite you (I have learned that the hard way).

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.

7 Birds

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!

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.

Chickens are by far the best pets. they are great pets for kids and also very loyal. We have had 10 chickens and they are amazing. We now have three and we have had a chicken for 10 YEARS! unfortunately she died. why are lions and tigers on this list whoever put them on the list are the craziest people in the world.. Please vote chickens they are the best pets ever

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.

8 Turtles

I think they are awesome plus they are not so hard to feed I have one in my Classroom and She I awesome they really cool.

You would probably find one in the grassy plains or regular box turtle in your yard but I think you should get it at your public pet store just to be safe '. '
But anyway there Awesome! Hope you enjoyed Please make it at least to top twenty!

Turtles are awesome I have 4 and they didn't bite (once I trained them). The one and only negative thing about turtles is if you use gravel the tank gets filthy. But they are pretty cool because they hunt fish when I put feeder goldfish in with them.

I 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!

Turtles I think are great pets, they are very low maintenance, they only need a? warm place to live lots of fruit and one worm each day if I were you I would follow this info and just wait to find a box turtle in the wild.

9 Lizards

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!

Why 52? I do not have one but they seem SO awesome! They are like lizards but bigger!
Like lizards, they are: Cute, awesome, and probobually cuddly! by the way, lizards are wizards! (They are magical! ) Also I don't have a lizard "-" but they crawl up your shoulder and cuddle you just like rats! I don't even have a rat either! You can put your bearded on your arm and they won't jump off probobually! Same thing with lizards Lol P.S did you
Know I like lizards?

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.

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.

10 Chinchillas Chinchillas are two species of crepuscular rodents, slightly larger and more robust than ground squirrels. They are native to the Andes mountains in South America and live in colonies called "herds" at high elevations up to 4,270 m.

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!

Ok, you shouldn't have chinchillas as pets. Why?
1. They are WILD and are not domesticated enough
2. The people you bought that chinchilla from probably doesn't know enough about them
3. They are SUPER shy and do not like cuddling, they get extremely unhappy when forced to cuddle
4 they're endangered in the wild and many times you don't know where he/she came from.
If you are going to get one ADOPT one from a reliable adoption center such as the SPCA because if you have watched what happens behind EMPLOYIES ONLY doors, especially illy at big time pet stores? It is inhuman, and mean to the animals. PLEASE IF YOU ARE GETTING A CHINCHILLA, ADOPT ONE FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHINCHILLA.

Chinchillas are very good pets for children 10-14,they are not very hard to take care of and rarely bite but their cages take up a bit of space. I would highly recommend them because their snugly and teach responsibility.

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

The Contenders
11 Rats Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents of the superfamily Muroidea. "True rats" are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black rat, Rattus rattus, and the brown rat, Rattus norvegicus.

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

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 should be ranked much higher than this. They're so smart, even smarter than some small dogs. I have tons of pets at home and my favourites are my dogs and rats. They get along very well and they're actually quite similar. They're way more friendly than a hamster and way more affectionate. It's really sad to see their reputation be so false. They're the cleanest rodents, so easy to take care of and they all have such different personalities. One of my rats; Ruby is shy and friendly and once she gets comfortable with someone she is so affectionate and cuddly and my other one; Jackie, has such an extrovert personality, loves to explore and loves everyone. I love them both so much and I encourage anyone looking for a pet to get a rat.

Very social
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.

12 Tortoises

I vote tortoises because they don't make any noises, kids love to see their pets eat a lot and well that's what they do also I have one and it is so great to have. kids also get to grow up with a tortoise. and I should know because this is a kid speaking here!

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).

Cutest Reptiles ever tortises are really good pets if you take good care of them

13 Snakes Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears.

Most people are afraid of snakes- because our culture teaches us to fear them. Books, movies, and media portray them as blood thirsty monstrosities- But they are very inquisitive and friendly creatures. I have nine snakes, one of which is wild caught, and all of them love being held and exploring the house from around my shoulders. I really have a hard time understanding the fear some people have of them, because I understand how gentle and innocent they truly are. They make great pets!

I have dogs and cats and am happy with them, but if I could, I would also have a snake or two with me. I tend to think of them as legless cats; calm, comforting (believe me) and not hard to look after. I just love corn snakes and milk snakes in particular. Snakes are so underrated.

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

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

14 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.

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!

Horses are the most beautiful animals on earth, and they are the greatest also. But seriously, these should be in first place, they are so amazing. I absolutely love their intelligance and abilities. I know a horse who can steer his way around the forest on his own, so if someone gets lost, he knows the way!

This should really be tied with dogs, a lizard being better than them is just pure mistake. Unlike lizards, horses are affectionate and you can do so much with them. These people really need to start getting real about pets that are actually good.

15 Hedgehogs A hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae, in the eulipotyphlan family Erinaceidae.

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!

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.

Yes! I am 10, but when I am older I want to move to Portland, Oregon and own a pet hedgie! They are so cute, friendly, lightweight, (unlike dogs and cats) don't bite, cute, low-maintenance, mobile and so much more! NYC should allow hedgies... I want one. Anyways, this should be like, 4th or 3rd or something!

The most cutest pet in the whole world very affectionate! I love Them because they funny and intelligent!

16 Ferrets The ferret is the domesticated form of the European polecat, a mammal belonging to the same genus as the weasel, Mustela of the family Mustelidae.

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.

Ferrets are so awesome and cute. I Want one so bad. They should be 3rd on the list. I have guinie pigs right now and they are not that great. They make huge messes because there pigs. They can't control there batters at all. They just let it out. Ferrets are as or better than cats because they actuallyy love ypu back. They give you attention so I've heard.

Ferrets are extremely intelligent predators of the mustelid family. I have a ferret who is the most gentle, kind, tame, and loving animal I have ever known. They learn tricks. They will form deep bonds with owners. Not as large as a cat but not as small as a mouse or rat. Ferrets are perfect pets

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!

17 Gerbils A gerbil is a small mammal of the order Rodentia. Once known simply as "desert rats", the gerbil subfamily includes about 110 species of African, Indian, and Asian rodents, including sand rats and jirds, all of which are adapted to arid habitats.

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!

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 5

Gerbils are awesome pets. They're like hamsters but easier to care for, more fun to play with and they poop way less

18 Frogs Frogs are a diverse and largely carnivorous group of short-bodied, tailless amphibians composing the order Anura.

Frogs should be much higher in this list! People might think that frogs are gross, nut they are actually cute! They aren't too hard to take care of either.

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 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!

Frogs are the best pets ever! The only cons are they carry salmonella and aquariums are expensive.

19 Pigs

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.

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.

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! 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!

20 Mice A mouse is a small rodent characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, a body-length scaly tail and a high breeding rate. The best known mouse species is the common house mouse. It is also a popular pet.

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!

I'm surprised mice aren't in the top ten! here's why I think they are really good pets:
1) mice are heckin adorable
you might be scared of mice, but nine times out of ten if you have a tame pet mouse you will grow to love it. they are soft and cuddly, and I've never been bitten by one (we've had four mice before and we're thinking of getting another two) the only one that did bite was the one who bit the vet because she had skin cancer (rip marshmallow) but the majority are sweet as heck and super cute.
2) mice are smart
you can train them to come when you call! isn't that so cute? (but please don't let your mouse loose and expect it to come back if you haven't trained it thoroughly) they can learn other things as well, like spinning in a circle and jumping onto your hand.
3) they aren't long-term commitments
it's sad to admit it, but mice only live about 2-3 years :( however this can be considered a good thing because if you can't take care of a pet for very long, ...more

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.

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!

21 Hermit Crabs

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.

How the heck does this hermit crab come after a freaking RAT and I am not talking about the band I have a hermit crab not a rat who do you think I am the people from the freaking Geico comerical

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 know they don't do much stuff but they are cool. I want one so much. They carry their shell on there back it should be heavy. I say they should be number one. There so cool

22 Skunks Skunks are mammals known for their ability to spray a liquid with a strong odor. Different species of skunk vary in appearance from black-and-white to brown or cream colored, but all have warning coloration.

Skunks make strange but wonderful pets.

Skunks are cool looking but smelly

We have one! They're cool!

Skunks are horrible!

23 Sugar Gliders The sugar glider is a small, omnivorous, arboreal, and nocturnal gliding possum belonging to the marsupial infraclass.

I have one named Sweetheart. And she is such a sweetheart, so the name fits her perfectly. Except she doesn't like my dad. Whenever he comes over, she bites him on the neck lol. She LOVES my mom though. Same with my brother and wife. My little 7 year old son is kinda scared of her and thinks that our dogs will protect him lol. We don't want our dogs around for when we let Sweetie out because, y'now. Predator and prey stuff. He is so attached to our dogs. We have six lol. A Bergamasco, shiba inu, Rottweiler, greyhound, Gordon setter, and Keeshond. by the way I love talking about dogs, so that's why I told you their breeds. Because...I like talking about...ok, yeah you get it. Yeah, gliders are AMAZING! Fabulous!

I don't even have a pet! I think sugar gliders are really cute. They are really cool, they could jump off walls! My parent don't know if should even have a pet. But I looked at other ones they'er not that cute exept dogs, bunnies, and hedgehogs but I thingk I want this one!

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 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

24 Squirrels

Red squirrels are very cute

Nicole Anderson has one ❤

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

25 Lizards Chameleons or chamaeleons are a distinctive and highly specialized clade of old world lizards with 202 species described as of June 2015. These species come in a range of colors, and many species have the ability to change colors.

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...

Lindsay Lohan has one ❤
