Everyone wants to keep a home clean from all kinds of mess—clean-up has never been considered as an enjoyable chore to repeat for several times a day, and it quite exhausting to do so, admittedly. Sometimes, those who have been considering bringing home a cute pet to take care of have hesitations. I wouldn’t blame them. Concerns about upkeep and maintenance will always be at the top of the list, and even you, as an interested reader, would most likely agree with me when I say that the animals who can take care of themselves on a decent level are more preferred to those who are messy and require constant surveillance.
To give you an idea on some of the cleanest pets which can fit into the role of being your next perfect buddy, here are some creatures that could make the cut:
Their constant vigilance on licking themselves clean is already a clue in itself. You might think that cat baths are dirty as a whole but in contrast, these are not. Plus, as long as they are trained to go to their litter box as soon as they feel that something is coming up—or down—then you as an owner would have no problem with their mess.
They stay in one location and don’t roam the house to cause havoc. Fish may not be the most sociable of pets, but looking at them causes a sense of relaxation and enjoyment that many of us would find enjoyable. Plus, as long as they would have a decent supply of oxygen and food, you would not need to worry about anything else. If the fish tank has the luxury of having a filter, clean-up can be done at least once a month.
Maybe they are not your typical pets, but leopard geckos are absolutely easy to take care of. They do require meals of small animals such as crickets or worms, but they only require a small space to live in and they’ll do all right. Adding to the fact that they don’t need to eat every day, they also designate an area in their aquarium or small space as their bathroom, so clean-up can be done in a breeze as well.
No matter what you would decide to bring home, keep in mind that proper care and nourishment is still much more important than the concern on cleanliness. All of us create waste, and it is up to us to be responsible in taking care of our pets in all manners possible.
