Introduction:Pets give companionship and love, but not every pet is right for every person. Many factors have to be considered before getting a pet - space, finances and time. For those wanting a low cost and low maintenance pet, parakeets may be the best choice.
Parakeets are inexpensive to buy and have low maintenance costs, making them great pets. You can purchase a parakeet for around twenty dollars and bird seed is also cheap. Save even more money by buying a used cage instead of a new one.
Parakeets, unlike cats and dogs, do not require yearly vaccines. Parakeets need vet visits only when sick. Keep those costs at a minimum by caring properly for your parakeet.
Parakeets only need a little space, making them perfect for apartment dwellers. Landlords that say "no" to cats and dogs often will say yes to a parakeet.
Parakeets need a clean cage, food and water. Their physical care requires less than 15 minutes a day, making them a great pet for busy people. You wont have to brush them, walk them or clean up hair balls.
These little birds entertain and engage us with their sunny personalities and their social natures. Parakeets love human interaction and are trainable. Some parakeets even learn to talk. Put on some music and your parakeet may sing and dance for you.
Consider your decision to get a pet carefully. All pets require a certain level of commitment. Remember that when you adopt a pet, you are responsible for the animal for as long as it lives. Be sure you are ready before bringing any pet, even a parakeet, into your home.
I love this list...there are many pets who are abandoned or given away because the owners had no idea what they were getting into. Investigate, investigate, investigate, is what one needs to do before choosing a pet. Highfive!
I loved having parakeets! I had them in all colors in a large glass case for sever years. I kept them all but never replaced them. They were a lot of work to keep clean. I enjoy my friends parrots now.
I like your final thoughts - even parakeets end up at the local humane shelter over here. Great list.
Excellent list about Parakeets for pets.
