Thank you so much for taking such good care of my Shiloa. A part of her is now back on the biking trails she loved to run with me. For those of us who cherish our animal companions, the service you provide is such a comfort. We will always use PWW when it's that time for our future pets. You are appreciated so much.
You may know that you want to have a pet, but remain unsure about whether a dog or a cat is right for you. Some people have clearly defined dog or cat loyalties, but other people simply know that they want a furry companion to join the family. Here are some things to consider as you choose a pet:
Size of Your Home
Big dogs require plenty of space. Apartments tend to be too cramped for most dogs. In fact, many landlords won’t allow large breed dogs on their properties. Dogs of any size need to go outside frequently and need space to run around for exercise.
Cats, on the other hand, have minimal space requirements and can be kept indoors at all times. If you live in an apartment or small home, a cat may be your best choice. If you do choose a dog and have a small home, pick a toy breed and be committed to walking it at least once a day.
Time You Have Available
Dogs need lots of attention. In addition to regular exercise, they need regular playtime and grooming. Cats tend to be much more independent. If you live alone or if your family is always on the go, you may not have the time to care for a dog properly. However, cats do require daily care, so be sure that you have the necessary time to devote to a pet before adopting any furry friend.
Amount of Money You Can Spend on Care
Cost is another factor to consider when choosing a pet. Larger dogs tend to be more expensive to care for than cats and smaller dogs, as they eat more food. However, both cats and dogs require regular veterinary care, so be sure that you are financially stable before making the commitment of owning either type of pet.
Whichever pet you choose, you’ll be rewarded with love from your new furry family member. At Paws, Whiskers, & Wags, we’re here to help you when your pet passes on. We offer pet cremation services and compassionate support in this difficult time. Call us at (404) 370-6000 to learn more about our pet cremation and pet memorial offerings.
