Best Friends, The Best in Pet Care
One of the great things about being a bird lover is that there are so many different species to enjoy. However, choosing the right bird for you can be a big decision. For example, some species are easily startled and may not be suitable if you have a noisy family home environment.  On the other hand, if you live in a small apartment, a bird that needs a large cage to fly around in will also not be appropriate.
Specially bred for their looks and temperament for at least one hundred years, pet rats are curious, intelligent creatures that are easily tamed and can make rewarding, inexpensive pets. They have been described as dogs in a smaller package!
Specially bred for their looks and temperament, pet mice are lively little creatures that make rewarding and inexpensive pets. These low maintenance pets are not noisy or demanding and take up very little space. Mice are highly social animals and watching them play amongst themselves is very entertaining.
Guinea pigs are small tailless rodents also known as cavies. Best kept in pairs or small groups, these vocal little creatures make wonderful low maintenance pets that rarely scratch or bite. If you get a friend for your guinea pig, make sure it is of the same sex or at least one of the pair is desexed. Guinea pigs are quite hardy and can be kept indoors or outdoors, but you do need to spend time with them each day so that they remain healthy. Handle your guinea pig often and it will happily sit on your lap for cuddles.
