Which Small Pet Is Right For Me?

So you've decided you want to get a small pet, but aren't sure which one is right for you. This fun quiz aims to give you an idea which would suit you best. Note: I'm not a vet or other professional, and your quiz result might not be your best choice in the end. Consider this quiz a guide of what to consider and not a directive. In the end, the pet you adopt is up to you. Be sure you're ready for the responsibility and can take good care of the pet you get, including spay/neuter and shots, if applicable.

    Which small animal is first to catch your eye at the pet store or shelter/rescue? (Adopt, don't shop, if possible!)

    Which budget for your pet is closest to what you can afford? *Keep in mind that, aside from accessories and feeding, there will likely be vet bills associated with pet ownership. Spay/neuter (where applicable) and vaccinations are essential, and it's also a good idea to carry health insurance on your pet if it's available to you in case it gets hurt or sick.

    How long of a commitment can you make to a pet? THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. You should under NO circumstances abandon an animal just because you've gotten tired of it or cannot afford to keep it. Choose very wisely, because its life is on the line. How would you like it if your parents or guardian abandoned you?

    How many pets would you want to keep in the same cage?

    *Keep in mind the health and happiness of your pet(s) while making this decision. Would you want three or four other people in your room with you? Some types do well in groups and others should be paired, ideally with a same sex buddy.

    What do you plan on doing most often with your pet during out of cage playtime?

I used to really want a hamster but then it suddenly died after two weeks but by then I completely loved him. It was so painful for me but now I think I might want another pet just not a hamster. I need a pet that is at no risk of dying quickly any suggestions?
