A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of pets.
Google defines the term ‘pet’ to be “a domestic or tamed animal kept for companionship or pleasure.” Pets, in fact, are also commonly known as companion animals.
Statistics prove that about 33% of the people on Earth are pet owners. Surveys also reveal that dogs and cats are considered to be the most owned pets here.
The most commonly owned pets are, in fact, dogs, followed by cats, fish, birds, and guinea pigs. Ferrets can also be seen to be considerably popular. Among birds, Parakeets or Budgies, Cockatiels, Finch, Love Birds, and Doves are common pets. Among fish, Goldfish, Guppy, Corny Catfish, Killifish, and Betta Fish (Siamese Fighting Fish) are widely kept as pets in mini aquariums are several houses.
Some people prefer to have not-so-common pets as well! Some of these include Fennec Foxes, Tarantalus, Degus, Hermit Crabs and even Cockroaches!
