People always argue that whether dogs or cats are better, but I really think that these people are missing something. There is one type of animal that is way better than a dog or a cat. Well, guess what is it? Can’t guess? Well, the answer is very simple and that pet is fish!
Here I am going to tell you why fish makes better pet than a dog or a cat.
1. VARIETY :-
I will admit that dogs do come in different sizes and shapes. There are amiable labs, dutiful german shepherd, energetic beagles and many more. Cats, too, come in different varieties but their differences are so minor that if the people asked which kind of cat you have? Then most of the people will answer a black one or a brown one. On the other hand, fishes have different varieties with more than thirty two thousand of species. There are frilly fish like lion fish, classic fish like the goldfish, dangerous and enormous fish like the white shark ( however I would not recommend to put this fish in one of your aquarium ).
2. THEY ARE SILENT :-
The best part of having fish is that you won’t have to listen to the noises make by the cats or dogs as they are silent as compared to dogs. You can even sleep with peace in the night. If you will have a dog or cat, they will bark or meow all the time which can be frustrating sometime. But if you have a fish, you can do all the important work with peace.
3. FISHES ARE HYPOALLERGENIC :-
Many people are allergic to some pets and I genuinely feel sorry for it. I think it is hard to not having an animal buddy to welcome you when you reached home from work. Luckily, fishes can tolerate by noses, even the most sensitive one! You can actually keep any of species of the fishes in the tank and you do not even need to worry about that.
4. THEY WON’T PEE ON YOUR CARPET :-
This reason is quite self – explanatory, am I right? Well, it is quite true. Fishes can be the best pet for the people who likes to keep their house clean and with order. If you will get a cat or a dog then initially they will definitely do their “business” on the floor or your carpet. Honestly, it is NOT a good work to do, I mean its smell – ewwwwww plus you will have to clean it out. on the other hand, fishes obviously can’t pee on your carpet.
5. THEY DON’T TAKE UP MUCH SPACE :-
A dog or a cat can even make your large apartment like a tiny one, thanks to all the toys, foods, and beds which we buys to make their life good and comfortable. But on the other hand, fishes do not take up much space. All you have to do, in order to keep your fish happy, is to buy a tank or a bowl, some food, and water. Having a cat or dog makes your house to look like a tiny house but if you have a fish then you need not to worry about this problem and it will also make your house more beautiful!
6. THEY ARE COST – EFFECTIVE :-
Having a dog or a cat can make your pocket lighter. They have certain types of need which includes food and groming to keep their bodies and fur healthy. However, it does not cost as much per month as human supplies and food but it can quite take the bite out of your pocket or wallet. On the other hand, fishes do not require all of this. You only have to buy a fishy flakes from any pet store and you are done! It will be good to go for several upcoming months. The special part is the cost of this is not much, less than ten dollars which should be good for you. They do not even require to visit the vet whereas dogs and cats can accumulate thousands of rupees in the vet.
7. FISHES ARE BEAUTIFUL :-
Yes I admit that dogs and cats are beautiful and adorable but fishes are more beautiful than them. In the advertisements, if they show dogs and cats with fishes then you have to admit that cats and dogs will look dull as compared to fishes.
8. THEY DO NOT NEED YOU TO ENTERTAIN THEM :-
Yes, fish doesn’t really care if you are there with them or not. They usually entertain themselves by playing aroumd the trees in the tank but dogs and cats needs you and if you could not spend much time with them because of your work, then they can even become depressed. Fishes spend their days eating, sleeping and swimming without thinking if you are with them or not. The only thing they do is to helps you to relax. They don’t need you to entertain them but you can be entertained by watching them.
