Never get a puppy because you want a puppy, get it if you want a dog. A kitten will grow into a cat, a duckling will grow into a duck, and bunnies/goldfish can live over ten years.
Don’t get a pet if you’re not willing to commit.
And ADOPT and RESCUE *them*. RESEARCH. Do not buy them, do not breed them. Save a life, don’t add to the deaths of millions of companions a year. This is so important.
And most importantly don’t let them shit in my room :)
