The dog was the first species to be domesticated, by hunter–gatherers over 15,000 years ago, before the development of agriculture. Due to their long association with humans, dogs have been bred for a wide variety of tasks.
The cat (Felis catus) is a domestic species of small carnivorous mammal.

I love all animals, but I especially adore cats and dogs. I get so much joy out of watching them play and cuddle together.
Chickens might not be the first animal that comes to mind when you think of common household pets, but raising backyard chickens can be SUCH a great experience. If they are exposed to you and raised by you since being chicks, it is much more likely they will be less afraid of you and will be more open to interaction and cuddles 🙂
Yes, there are some chickens that will cuddle with you, which is super adorable. However, you must do your research in taking care of them to prevent attacks from predators such as foxes. Overall, chickens are adorable, clucking pets that will bring so much joy into your life.
I’ve had four Syrian hamsters as pets, and each one had their own personality – they made for great overall pets! It’s better to get them when they’re baby hamsters or younger so that they have a chance to get used to you earlier on.
Both females and males can be sweet, but females have a musky odor when they are ready for breeding. I would recommend a hamster for a responsible child or teen – someone who is willing to take on the responsibility of a pet. They are fairly low-maintenance and cost-effective pets. They are also smart and can be litter-trained. They make for very good pets once they are used to you and are also super fuzzy and cute!

My friend and I caught two small lizards. I forget what kind they are, but they are both males, indicated by the two brilliant blue spots on their necks. Sadly the younger one, Pal, died, but his brother and best friend, Buddy, is still alive. They make great pets and are very bonded with their owners if they have had a lot of attention from them as babies. If they are bonded well, they will ride on your shoulder all day!
Guinea pigs are more like rats with better haircuts. All credit to them, they’ve got some serious style.
