Best Pets For Apartments!
While apartment living can often mean no pets or simply… small ones only, there’s in fact a number of options when it comes to apartment-friendly pets. Kitty Bingo brings an exclusive blog to help you find your next apartment companion. And we’re not limiting ourselves to kitties this time!
Bunnies are social animals, but they do not like to be held often. What’s fun about them is that they’re curious by nature and their ears go pointy when around humans. Rabbits are a little hard to train, compared to common domestic animals. Plus, they like to chew and dig (instincts!). If you got some dangling wires around the house, then you better secure them if you don’t want Mr Bunny to nibble on them.
If you’re looking for social pets that can be easily tamed and handled, then Gerbils are a good choice! These cute little rodents do best in same-sex pairs. They tend to be active, on and off, throughout the day. You can breed some without the need of a huge cage. A simple glass aquarium or hamster cage will do the thing. Their tantrums and social antics are surely fun to watch.
There are a wide variety of reptiles that can be adopted as pets and iguanas tend to be the first to go from pet shops. They are beginner-level pets and require no expert knowledge to breed some in captivity. To properly keep one as pet, you simply need to get a good space for the aquarium, some special lighting and heat sources. Don’t forget to stack up on the veggies; iguanas are herbivores.
A classic pet for apartments, for sure! There may be no pet with that much side gears as gold fishes. You need tanks, stones, plants, structures, cleaners, filters, food, light… the list continues with a dozen items more. But they make great apartment pets. Just remember to feed them when needed. Feeding once or twice a day and cleaning at least once a month seems like a good deal, right?
Sugar Gliders are a cuteness package! They are social animals and get along pretty well with their owners, specially if cared since a young age. They are mostly territorial, so it can be a bad idea to have two of the same sex! The only challenge with Sugar Gliders is that you need to keep up with their nutritional needs. Get educated before you decide to buy one. Because they are playful by nature, they might require a large cage. But keep in mind that they prefer height more than floor space!
Of course, these animals will do equally well in a house. They are definitely alternatives if you want no cats and dogs.
