Pet wanted for my kids (7,5 & 2 year old)
We are family of 5, myself, wife and 3 kiddos aging from 2, 5 & 7 year old. They always wanted a pet. Me and my wife are damn busy with our work and taking care of kids as we are not sending them to any day care, as we prefer to care them by our-self as much as possible. Now they really wanted a pet but I don't think they know how difficult it will be to manage. What will be an ideal pet to take care with not much of attention & work. A bird, cat , bunny or a dog ? Any other pets, I don't like fish !
Other things to consider, now at least 1 person will be home 95% of the time but in future , once kids are bigger my wife may work full time, so 8-4 no one will be home, so pet may have to stay alone. Once, pandemic is over ever year we may go for 2-4 weeks vacation, outside of Canada !
So my question is that its better not to get any pets and try to console my kids by telling them the cons of it or buy a pet and deal with it !
