If you're going to have pets, you've got to look after them. The expression "keeping pets" is a bit anomalous. You might be able to keep small animals and it would be a matter of maintenance, but for most kinds of animals kept as pets, it's more of a friendship. Pets enjoy membership of your family, and have to be involved to a greater or lesser extent. Dogs have a pack mentality and if you're not the pack leader you've got problems. Cats are more independent, but you've got to be sociable with them or they can be quite antisocial. We talk about "good value-for-money cats". If you're thinking about getting an unusual pet, for example a reptile that will grow to giant proportions, be sensible! You will have to look after it!

All pets need insurance. You can get pet insurance, or if not, you become in effect your own pet insurer and pay the vets bills, because pets aren't covered by the National Health Service!
