Getting a Pet That Doesn’t Match Your Lifestyle

Are you an indoor person or an outdoor person? This is one of the first things you need to think about when deciding as to whether you want to get a cat or a dog. Cats are generally indoor pets and don’t require to be outdoors. Dogs, by comparison, may require walks and generally love the outdoors, whether it means going to dog parks, going camping, or otherwise. People sometimes have a tendency to get a pet that doesn’t match their lifestyle, and the last thing you want is a pet that is unhappy. Do some research on an animal before deciding to bring them into your home.  Most Dogs require frequent walks, and if you’re the type of person who isn’t outdoorsy or doesn’t enjoy being active, consider a cat or other sort of pet who doesn’t require regular exercise to be healthy and happy.

Being Away Too Often

Plenty of people love animals and think that loving animals is enough to be a good pet owner. While loving animals is a great quality to have as a pet owner, there’s plenty of other things required of you if you want to take good care of your pet. One of the common mistakes made by pet owners is being away from home too often. While dogs and cats can be left alone for hours and be fine, both require varying levels of care and attention. In addition to frequent walks, dogs need to be let out of the house a few times a day to use the bathroom. 

In general, dogs also require more attention than cats, as cats are more independent. Whether you’re someone who travels a lot for work or pleasure, or works long and late hours, being away from your pet for longer periods of time is not only unfair to your pet, but it can also affect their mood, especially dogs. What good is having a pet if you are unable to spend time with them? If your schedule doesn’t allow you to be able to spend time with your pet, you may want to consider a pet that requires less commitment on your end, or simply wait until you are able to spend time with them.
