About This Quiz

People want pets for different reasons, and while the most common reason is for companionship, other people want pets to become more responsible, and there are also those who want pets to show off to their friends and family. 

We all live different lives, so finding a pet that fits our specific lifestyles may be very difficult. A number of variables must be taken into consideration, including how busy your schedule is, the size of your living space, the person you live with and the amount of time that you spend at home. 

Most people chose to go with dogs because they are very playful and loving animals, while some go with cats because they are fairly easy to take care of. Others have more of an exotic taste and purchase animals like snakes and lizards.

Which of the many different types of pets out there is perfect for you? Will it be one of the most common pets in the world or will it be something for people with particular tastes? Will it be an animal with four or even eight legs or will it be an animal that needs space to fly? If you would like to find out, then you need to take this quiz!
