Having a cat or a dog, or even both, can be a commitment that you have to make and not one that you can easily get rid of by paying someone else off to take care and clean up after your pets. Having them in the first place is a full-time job and even if you could afford to have someone else feed them and clean up after them, it’s really likely that they will get fond of their caregiver and not really much of you even if you do take the time to play with them.
That said, the basic idea is that if you don’t think you will have the time to care for your animals or you just don’t want to do the hard work, then that is a great sign that having pets is just not the thing for you. One thing you will find yourself doing really often is having to clean up their mess and not get angry at them. They will leave their hair all over your furniture and it sticks to it like crazy. You’ll need a great product like a vacuum cleaner if you want to ensure that it all gets off conveniently and reliably
If you’re lucky, none of your family or friends are going to have much of an issue with your pets either. But sometimes someone is allergic and that means that you will have to choose either them or the pet and that is a really difficult decision to make if you have had a pet for a really long time. Even if someone comes around to visit but they are allergic, you need to ensure that there aren’t any traces of it in your home or they will be sneezing all the time and that’s the best-case scenario.
