Are you a pet lover? If you are, this is a post for you! Most of the people who love pets and sometime pet are hard to afford like dogs ?
There is also some things to take consideration before getting a pet. Ask yourself,
– Are you ready to have a pets?
– what’s the things that you need to know about the pets you want, like do they suit you or your families members?
Defiantly a lot of things to know first before you decide.
As for small animals, I guess it not much difficult cause they only need to be feed and of cause CARE is the most responsible!
So what are the small animals to have? If you love a dog but you couldn’t get it because it’s too ex and cannot afford for now, how bout consider having a small pets like:
Hamsters? Yes. They are small and tiny also in big sizes available. They only need a small cage to stay and some treats and food to feed. Most important is the bedding. They need to clean up once a week or maybe twice will be good.
Hamsters are cute little creatures when you bring them out of the cage for some exercise with a exercise ball or indoor running wheel. And the cutest part is sometimes they just stare at something and just stop down there (blank out) HAHA! Is fun when you take some nice shots or video to post on social media and share around the world!
They come in different breed, like small winter white, roborovski. The largest breed is Syrian. Syrian hamster size is about 6 – 7inches.
Check out your local store for more info on the hamster breed. The price range from $12 SGD onwards for hamster itself. For the accessories like cage, food etc.. will be $20 onwards. Some may depend on which store you find, those at HDB area will be cheaper than the mall pet shop.
Birds – Parrots or birds
Birds are cute! But they can be quite stink when you never clean them. Usually need to be clean once or twice weekly. That will be good because they live in small caged and they do shit a lot. Well, if you see outside birds you will know what I mean. HAHA.
Mostly birds can be found is birds pet shop which is seldom saw it around. But parrots will be available in those pet store that are in the HDB area. Some parrot may need to be in the cage, but some can be freedom without the cage but with the leg locked. I guess is to prevent them from flying away.
Some parrot can be train well, it will also depends on how you take care of it. It’s kind of fun to have parrot as pet and you can bring them out anytime. The price range is about $200 ++ or can be found lower depends on the bird breed or colour of the parrot I guess or maybe it’s already trained, that’s the reason why the price will be higher I guess.
Fish is defiantly most cheapest you can find at those pets farm and pets store too! Price range from $5 onwards or lower I guess. Of cause for people who love fish a lot suit to have fish. Because you can’t bring them out of play with them like others pets.
It’s kind of boring but depends on what you love to have. I feel is more for like seeing them swimming around the tank. Somewhat makes you feel better? Some people love fish because they are easy to maintain, They need to change water and feed them regularly. The fun thing to do is you can get the decorations to put in the tank make it like “Castle”. (You know what I mean. HAHA).
And also there are shrimps, hermit crab etc. to choose from. But compare to fish, these creatures might need to spend more for their needs like maintaining of water level. Cause they don live in just normal water.
I have a roughly budget which is about $100 min to spend on the tank, food and maintaining products for shrimps.
For fishes some need filter as oxygen to live some might not need. Still need to depends on the fishes. But to get advise more, do check with the shop so that you will know what to do and what to buy to prevent getting cheated.
The food and maintenance products price range about $15 onwards. Do check out some of the farm will have cheaper offer too.
So, these are the few pets that you can consider to have with a low-budget. Hope this info helps you. Most important is you need to have time to change and care for your pet. The key word is “Time”. HAHA.
– Don’t rush to get a pet if you can’t afford it. Take some time for discussion before you decide anything.
– Check out for breed or pet that you want to have before you decide getting it.
– Think about the budget that you have first. Because they might need medical support, food and some other misc. stuff needed.
Small pets needs products like vitamin, Treats or etc. that are important, but not as much as for dog or cat. Some products are not necessary to have it. But it’s still up to you as long as you have the budget that will be fine 😉
Hope this post will help you in getting your favourite forever pets!
