Human and animal relationships can be very close like friends, such as the following animals that are safe for toddlers to keep.
Keeping animals or adopting them can bring good benefits for your little one, including teaching children about responsibility and so that they learn to empathize . For Mommies who plan to choose a pet for their beloved baby, here are some safe choices.
Not all cats are suitable to be your little one’s best friend. This is because there are several types of cats that do not hesitate to scratch or bite the hand that wants to touch it. In a site that discusses AZ about cats, there are 10 types that are possible for your little one to keep. Some types are not available in Indonesia, but five of them are available in Indonesia and are known to be docile and not afraid of new people they meet. Mommies or your little one can choose the type of cat: Persian, Maine Coon, Siamese, ragdoll, and exotic.
When small, some children usually choose fish as pets. The aquarium in the shape of a round jar cannot be separated to be placed in the room, complete with a filter to ensure that the water circulation is always clean. However, once a week the aquarium must be cleaned, so that the fish are kept healthy. Of course, this activity can be helped by the husband so that it can also be a bonding activity with the Little One.

Animals with soft fur and stocky bodies are indeed very adorable to be an animal choice that is safe for toddlers to keep at home. Avoid keeping rabbits that are 2 months old, because their health is still very vulnerable.
Therefore, you should choose a rabbit that is at least 3 months old. The best rabbit food is grass and carrots. However, Mommies can still give kale and cabbage as long as it’s not too much because both types of vegetables contain a fairly high gas and cause rabbit urine to smell pungent.
Your little one can also choose a bird to be a pet, besides the chirping that can give a different atmosphere to the house, the colorful feathers can also be a reference for your little one to learn to recognize various colors.
Instead, choose a cage that is rather large so that the pet bird can flap its wings more freely. Invite your little one to clean the cage regularly so that he understands that the consequences of raising animals mean that he also has to take care of the cleanliness of his cage.
If you want to adopt a dog, choose a dog that is adapted to the conditions and size of the house. Because large breed dogs (golden, herder, pitbull, rotwailer, dalmation, etc.) of course need a bigger and wider space, especially the yard to express the dog’s energy and motor “lust”. In addition, pay close attention to the cleanliness factor of the dog, the environment and the cage, regularly check with the vet for vaccines and check the health of teeth, mouth, ears and nails.
Also make sure the dog does not eat the same food as us. If your little one chooses a large breed of dog, make sure he is always under supervision when playing with his favorite animal. Because sometimes dogs can’t control their happy emotions.
Whatever type of pet you want to adopt, make sure you and your little one have a big commitment to take care of them with all your love. Because they are also living beings, who deserve to live properly 🙂
