Are you allergic to cats and dogs? If you are allergic to cats and dogs, Apartment Therapy offers pet alternatives.
Apartment Therapy offers suggestions like amphibians and reptiles. You might also try raising domestic rodents like hamsters or chinchillas. If you choose amphibians, reptiles, or fish, you could purchase the appropriate sized tank. Learn what is needed to feed your new pet and how to make its environment friendly.
If you choose a guinea pig, a ferret, or a hamster, you will need to buy the appropriate cage and learn how to take care of your animal. Most rodents are hoarders, so you don’t want to over feed them. Birds also make great pets, but the chirping can be a too much for you.
Before you purchase a new pet, visit your TriBridge Residential community office to learn about your apartment pet restrictions. Search the internet or visit your local library, to learn about different pets. Find out which pet is appropriate for your lifestyle. Drive to your local pet store, like PetSmart or PetCo to purchase your new friend and the appropriate pet care materials. When you purchase your new pet, post a picture to the TriBridge Residential Facebook page, let us see your new family member.
