So You Want a Pet? Start here!
Looking after a pet is a BIG responsibility. A pet is not just a playmate for you. A pet needs lots of care and attention (as well as love) – just like you really – so you need to show the grown-ups in your home that you are willing to help look after your pet, as well as play with him/her.
Looking after your pet means you will need to help with:
- Cleaning (such as grooming, cleaning out the cage or cleaning out the tank)
