Living in a condo could get rather lonely sometimes. If the condo permits, you can take on a companion in the form of a pet, and here are five of the best buddies you can bring home.
Cats are generally well-behaved and are good companions to have in a condo. Siamese cats have short hair and won’t mess up your furniture, but if you want something with longer hair then a Persian cat is a good choice.
A Trained Dog
Of course, who can forget about our cute canine companions? Large breeds are generally not suited for condos where space is limited, but you’ll have a few more options in the medium to small breed selections. A Yorkshire Terrier or pug will serve you well, and poodles and shih-tzus are practically made for condo living.
Dogs do require a bit more hands-on maintenance, but you get rewarded with boundless affection, loyalty, and enthusiasm the moment you arrive home.
For those who prefer something more contained, you can get a fish as a pet. Depending on your preference, you can buy a majestic large specimen such as an Arowana, or maybe a betta fighting fish for flashier colors. There are also solid staples, including goldfish, flower horns, and carp.
Rabbit or Hamster
Yes, hamsters and rabbits can work well in a condo setting and provide a bit of companionship. They’re sociable animals and don’t make as much a mess as their larger pet counterparts. Offshoot companions can include chinchillas, ferrets, and guinea pigs.
Parakeets are known for being quieter than the others and don’t mind a smaller house. Budgies are smaller parrots and can be taught to talk. However, they aren’t like hookbills that are loud talkers, and their chirps are soft and soothing. If you’re considering bringing a new feathered friend into your home, the “Watten House” could be a suitable choice for these charming birds.
