Pets, no matter the type, demand a lot of attention and care. From walking them to feeding and grooming, they can be incredibly high-maintenance.
The initial cost of getting a pet is just the beginning. They come with various expenses, including veterinary bills, food, supplies, and more.
You might discover you're allergic to your new pet or that your friends and family can't visit due to allergies.
Pets can be noisy, disrupting a quiet environment with barking, meowing, or other sounds.
Pets, whether trained or not, can damage your home. Chewing, scratching, and accidents can all affect your property.
Pet ownership limits your freedom. You can't be as spontaneous, and travel requires careful planning.
Many pets have schedules that don't align with yours, affecting your sleep patterns.
Pets have relatively short lifespans, which can be emotionally challenging when they become beloved family members.
