DO’S AND DON’T OF ADOPTING A BABY PET
- By Kavya Sinha
We all have this ultra soft corner for babies and when it is a baby pet with its adorable features and innocence you just cannot resist it. Who doesn’t like a pet that you can see grow and change over a time period. To see your pet learn and respond to you is one of the most amazing feeling one can have. There are endless benefits and best part of adopting a pet babies where on one side you offer unconditional care to them they make sure that they give unconditional love in return by either their actions or behavior. But there are certain don’t and do’s of pet.
1.Do Extensive Research
It is extremely important that one must have complete knowledge about his pet. It ranges from what kind of food your pet requires to how often he needs to see a veteran. Mostly pet owners are of the view that a certain pet eat drinks and sleep just like the other similar pets they have come across throughout their life. But that is wrong; every pet even if it belongs to the same family differs at some point. It is important that you do extensive research of your pet.
2.Don’t Over Stress Your Pet
If you just got yourself this cute little fellow and you want the whole extended family and neighborhood to come over and see it how adorable it is, please DON’T do it. You will be over stressing your new mate. You need to realize this is a new place for him and before anything else it needs to settle down first.
3.Do Ensure That Your Pet Receives A Balanced Diet
There is basically no difference between a pet baby and a human baby. Both of them require the same amount of care during their early days. Therefore it is necessary that once you decide to adopt a baby pet that you provide it with the best diet to ensure that the baby pet is healthy
4.Don’t Adopt Because Of An Impulse
I know that it is hard to look away and resist a baby pet when you first see it and then get to hold it but do you really need a pet? Just because you think that the creature is cute and adorable. You need to realize that adopting a pet and a baby pet in particular is quite a big responsibility and not everyone has the capability to handle this kind of responsibility. So if you think this is just an impulse then let it go. You can play , adore but don’t make decisions that you will not be able to handle in future.
5.Do Spend Quality Time
Spending time with anyone around us helps us to grow as important it is for us as a person, in similar way it is important for your baby pet. If you spend quality time with them it will not only ensure that they are growing with you but it will also help you to make a connection with them so that understand their needs.
6.Don’t Adopt At A Very Early Age
There is a fine line between adopting a baby pet and a newborn. You need to realize that the newborns have special needs and requirements which can only be fulfilled in their surroundings and not with you. As a human child they too need their mothers for the nourishments which only they can provide. Adopting pets at a very early age will not only put you in trouble but also the baby at risk too.
7.Do Interact With People with Similar Pets
Who doesn’t like to have friends? Pets are just like us in this. They like you and everyone around you. If you find some people who have similar pet either in age or breed or type interact with them , try asking them the challenges they face and look what is not normal. Interacting with such people is not only beneficial for you but your new baby pets too he will get to meet new pets but make sure you don’t leave him alone or someone might hurt him.
8.Don’t Adopt If You Cannot Commit
This by far the most important concern when you decide you want to adopt a pet. Adopting a pet especially a baby pet is no easy job. As mentioned earlier it is as difficult as an human baby. You need to be there with the pet which includes compromises. Lots and lots of compromises to be honest in this case. This will be the case not only for the first few days but for a really long time. Your pet will need on every basic need, start from eating taking out for dump and even for the social exposure that you determine. Any lack during this age will do irreparable damage to him. So you need to think a lot before making this decision.
All in all if I were to sum up this whole case I will just say three things. Think at least twice before you take this decision. Discussions are important but from relevant people only. People with pets and experience are good. Don’t get fooled by those who act like they know it all. And lastly ask yourself are you ready for this. Because the cuter it looks from the other side the messier it is from here. But it is a life changing experience. Good Luck!
