Owning a pet – the pros and cons -animal waste

Buying a pet is something to think about. Many people are rushing to find that they made the wrong decision afterwards. The choice you make not only has consequences for your life, but it is also a choice you make for another living being.

An unwanted animal is a very unhappy animal, even if its material needs are met. Every year, thousands of dogs, cats, rabbits, turtles and hamsters are thrown into the streets by their owners because coming to the wrong decision was too easy.

Being a caring and responsible person, you want to make sure that you only get a pet if you can give it a good life with you.

So let’s start with the advantages of owning a pet before we get to the facts against keeping pets.


  • A pet brings happiness and joy into your life.
  • A pet gives you the opportunity to share your love and care.
  • If you live alone, a pet keeps you company.
  • Animals give unconditional love – they don’t care who you are, what you are, or how much you earn.
  • Pets are great companions for children, helping them in times of turmoil or emotional problems as well as educating them about nature and humans.
  • Children learn to become more understanding, patient and responsible in their actions when they grow up with a pet.


  • Owning a pet means being responsible for another being who is completely dependent on its caretaker. This responsibility may sometimes be tested as a burden.
  • If you lead a very busy life, you may be responsible for the physical and emotional needs of a pet too much.
  • Who will take care of your pet when you go on holidays or, God forbid, if you have to go to the hospital?
  • Animals have physical needs just as we do. They need to eat food and get rid of waste. This means that you will have to put up with certain smells in your home, no matter how clean your pet is. If you are very homely proud or perhaps a bit compulsive when it comes to bacteria, if you like a clean place to live, animal hair and dander may not be for you.
  • Keeping a pet can be very expensive. You need money to feed the animal and provide health care. Depending on the species, this amount can reach a large amount each month.
  • I know many good-hearted people who underestimated this important factor only to find themselves in serious debt after their beloved animal fell ill. Just imagine the grief of putting a pet to sleep just because you couldn’t find the money to pay for the necessary surgery or treatment!

However, there are many animals on the market that suit all different lifestyles, we must never forget that animals are sentient beings who are completely dependent on their people.
