What Pet Suits Your Lifestyle?

http://uk.tickle.com/test/petsuits/start.html

Alicia, your ideal pet is a wildbird!

Don’t be alarmed by the apparent contradiction between the words “wild” and “pet.” We just think that someone as busy as you would get more pleasure from creatures that can come and go as they please rather than be dependent on you for everything. Attracting birds to your garden is relatively easy and “cheep” and can be very rewarding.

It means you’re not committed to looking after an animal for years and don’t have any vet’s bills. We think that having an active bird table will appeal to the free spirit part of your personality, (no matter how well it may be hidden) and if you’re short of outside space you can fix one on your window. Soon you’ll be watching the antics of the different species from the comfort of your living room, from the kitchen while you cook, or even while you’re sunbathing in the garden!

Just in case you’re sceptical about being able to interact with your wild, feathered friends, you will soon find yourself greeted by a chorus of cheeky beaks when you venture outside. So try taking a walk on the wild side – you might like it!

Well, right on the mark since I happen to have a cat ;)
=========================================

xxx, your ideal pet is a cat!

Cool, self-sufficient and eager for a cuddle when in the right mood, you could make the perfect cat owner!

You have an independent side to your personality so you can quite understand the feline tactics of appearing at meal times, staying out all night and seeking out a cosy lap to sleep on. Just remember that while cats are certainly chic, they are not particularly discerning house guests. Your sofa will have the same attraction as a tree trunk when your moggy wants to sharpen her claws and new curtains make great climbing frames.

(Sheesh, now you tell me! :rolleyes: Tree Trunk is too generous for the way my furniture looks :tape: )

If you get a kitten you should remember that everything becomes a toy, especially if it’s hidden on a high shelf. Then there’s the well-practised feline skills of getting fur on your smart clothes and tripping you up if you venture out of your room in the night for a glass of water. (thanks for the tip wiseguy :ras: ) However, we think your appreciation for the mischievous side of life will ensure you will always forgive your cat for her pranks (too true), you may even catch her out with some of your own! :angel:

Lee, your ideal pet is a fish!



Most people would appreciate some tranquillity at times and with your busy life you may have more need than most. Fish may not sound that exciting but they come in a myriad of different colours and they are very relaxing. Scientists have shown that our heart rates drop significantly simply by sitting and watching goldfish.

You may not want to spend hours doing this every evening, but it does make a calming alternative to watching the adverts on the telly. Fish never answer back; never demand to be taken for a walk in the rain and never scratch the furniture. This means your pets will not intrude on those times when you need your personal space – especially after a hectic day.

They’ll also be quite happy for you to lie in on weekends. All they require is that their tank is kept clean and well aerated and that they receive regular food. If you’re away for a few days you can buy slow release food blocks to keep them happy in your absence. So when your life is busy and the chips are down, fish may be your ideal companions!

OK, so why I have 2 dogs + a fish tank + a scorpion?

Carlita, your ideal pet is a rabbit!



Eh, what’s up doc? There’s more to rabbits and guinea pigs than just giving them a steady supply of carrots; just like you, they can be sociable companions who may not adverse to a comforting cuddle when the time is right. They just need to be handled gently, but firmly.

In fact with a bit of patience rabbits can be allowed to roam in the home, as they can be house trained thanks to their habit of always going to the toilet in the same place. Just be wary of any nibbling habits they may have - bunnies have very sharp teeth and your furniture may look tasty. Rabbits and guinea pigs are always popular with children, not to mention adults who have retained a youthful edge to their personality. They are quite easy to keep, although they really need to have access to a run in the garden, or better still the whole garden at regular intervals. Just keep them away from your vegetable patch and make sure you have checked their sexes if you have more than one – they breed like, …well you know!

:lol: my rabbit Rafael :haha:

your ideal pet is a rodent!

Hmm, you may not be too excited to hear that you’re suited to rodents but you should be flattered to hear that you’ve got quite a few things in common. Admittedly, not everyone coos with delight when they see a pet mouse or hamster, but there’s a significant section of the population who think that both you and fluffy rodents are rather cute.

Who could resist those little beady eyes, delicate little paws and the way they devour cardboard toilet roll tubes? The hamsters, that is not you! Rodents are fun, active and always entertaining to watch, at least until they decide to start kicking sawdust over the carpet. However, be aware that many species are mainly nocturnal so it’s not advisable to keep them in a bedroom unless you find the sound of digging, scrabbling and chewing a natural sedative.

Just like you, rodents can be cunning when they need to, especially rats, as they make excellent, and very intelligent, pets. If other members of your household are not keen on the idea of “vermin” in their houses, you’ll just have to stay one paw in front of them to convince them otherwise!

:rolleyes: :unsure:
