If you love animals, then there is often room for more than one pet in your life, and if you like a bit of variety, small animals can make great pets. Small animals need plenty of looking after, and of course their own cages. It is especially important to give them a space of their own if you have other larger pets such as cats and dogs or small children. When choosing a small pet, it is a good idea to look at just how much work is involved. While they don't need taking for walks, they will still benefit from being able to exercise, and of course, small animal cages need cleaning out on a regular basis in order to keep your pet as healthy and happy as possible.
