If your little ones or maybe even the big kids in your family have been pestering you for a puppy or a kitten but you just don’t want to agree to such a large commitment then why not opt for pets that need slightly less space and attention. Even better, get pets that can live happily in your back garden.
Here are our top 3 garden pets:
Rabbits make excellent family pets, they are cute, cuddly and often affectionate and the best part is you don’t have to take them for several walks a day. Providing you have a large cage and a spacious run they will be more than happy in your garden. Rabbits are very sociable pets and they don’t like to live on their own so always try to get at least two. Male and female rabbits get on best together; however you need to make sure they’re neutered unless you want to end up overrun with baby rabbits.
Chickens can be the ideal addition to the family, not only are they friendly and fairly easy to care for, they can also supply you with tasty free range eggs for the whole family. When it comes to keeping chickens the most important thing is that you have adequate space in your garden for them to roam as well as a strong and secure chicken house to keep them safe during the night.
3. Guinea Pigs
These little creatures are incredibly lovable and easy to care for. They can live outside all year providing they have plenty of shelter from the cold and any draughts as well as lots of bedding to keep the warm. Just like rabbits they love company so you need to have more than one guinea pig.
If you’re looking for a feathered friend or a cute and fluffy companion for your family then you need to ensure you have all the right equipment, starting with the cage.
