Simple Things You Can Do to Be a Great Pet Parent
Do more research and ask some people who has pet before getting a new pet
It's important to consider what kind of animal is right for your family and lifestyle before choosing one. If you are not home often or not a big fan of running outside or not really like play always an energetic puppy or kitten might not be the right choice for you. It's not fair to the pet and your life, and your house may most likely suffer the consequences. A little bit older dog or cat might be a better option, as they’re lower maintenance and don’t require as much attention. Also, research which breed is right for you. Whether purebred or a mix, each breed comes with its own distinct personality type and care requirements. If you love them, you should give them the life is good for pets.

Your pet will likely spend most of its time in the house so it’s important to make them comfortable in their environment. It is ok if they don't stay in the bed you bought for them. Sometimes cats love boxes more than any cat bed you bought. Just need to make sure to do things like always keep their water bowl full, give your dog has access to a potty area whether that be a doggy door or indoor potty pad, keep your cat's litter box is fresh and accessible, and provide a bed for them to snuggle in so they don’t have to lay on the hard floor all day. Enjoy your sweet time with your lovely pets.
It is important to let your pet have an ID or necklace
No one wants their pet to get lost, but accidents happen. The best way to help prevent losing your pet for good is getting them a comprehensive, digital pet ID. You can buy it in any pet store and put your number on it. It is not necessary to bring a necklace to cats because many cats don't like it. But if you have a cat outside, a collar is a good idea. When your cat is friendly to other people, it may not be friendly "adopted" because its collar means "I already have a mom/dad."
