So, are you relaxed and laid back? Or do you prefer to be on the go and outside? These are two very important questions to ask yourself when considering adopting a pet such as a dog or a cat. Do you have time before and after work to walk the dog? Will you be heading to the park daily, going for a jog, or meeting the kids at school? Can you make time before bed to take a walk with your four legged friend? A dog will fit this lifestyle and enjoy being with you or any member of your household. If you work long days or have job that keeps you traveling, you may want to consider hiring a dog walker so that your dog is not cooped up for too long. A bored dog can be a very mischievous dog and get into things you wouldn't even think about. Are you more of an introvert, homebody, and loner? A cat may be the pet for you. Cats need you when they need you - that's it! For the most part cats are loners, independent survivors. All a cat needs is food, water, liter box, and a window in the sun for bird watching and napping. A cat does not need to be walked or exercised as drastically as a dog. Although it is suggested that you get a few toys and a scratch pad to entertain your kitty cat. Whichever decision you make, you will be welcomed home by either pet every time you enter your home. They will make your long day at work or school so worth it.
