To pet or not to pet?

There’s no escaping the fact that pets are an non-essential financial burden – they cost money, sometimes lots of it… However, they also offer great mental health benefits, and possibly physical health benefits and if you already have one, we’re not going to tell you to get rid of it!  If you are looking for a new family pet, do spend time to consider the costs of ownership – including your time and energy as well as space for your pet to eat, sleep and have time away from the family.

Please consider re-homing an unwanted animal before buying from a private seller – this is not just morally and ethically more astute, it’s probably cheaper too with the money going to a worthy cause…
