Pets are wonderful to have and can be great company. Some people like to more than one pet as they can be so wonderful.

All pets require feeding and looking after. Some animals don't require much care, like cats, while others require regular exercise such as dogs and horses.

Some pets don't need much to eat and are not expensive to buy. Horses are quite expensive to buy, and you need to pay a lot for boarding and food.
