Are You Ready For A Pet?
If you don’t have a pet already, you have solid experience with pets, and you’re totally there lifestyle-wise to take on all the responsibilities (and fun!) of caring for one.
You have some experience with pets, and you’re well on your way to having the mindset and mature adult habits to rock pet parenthood! Consider getting a little more pet-sitting under your belt and seeking some advice from your pet-owning friends before taking the leap.
You have little to no experience with pets, and you’re pretty into just having fun and ~doing you~ in your life right now. Maybe table the pet thoughts for the time being and check back in when your habits and interests are more compatible with the responsibility being a pet parent requires.
You have no experience with pets, and honestly, it doesn’t seem like a pet would fit into your life or be very much fun for you! Maybe get some cool succulents instead?
