The Pet List – Types of Pets Requiring Low-Maintenance Care

A lot of people think that owning a pet means having an adorable and furry friend to keep you company, but what they don’t realize is that it entails great responsibility. If you aren’t that ready yet for the big responsibility but you want to experience owning a pet, then consider buying low-maintenance pets for the meantime. Here’s a list of some animals that require only a modicum of maintenance:


Fish are among those animals that require minimal care and that’s the reason why they are popular among people who have less time to take care of their pets. They are also perfect for children who are just starting to learn the importance of having pets. Unlike other common pets, most fish species are not that expensive, so buying two or three won’t definitely hurt your pocket.


Pet Turtle

For people or kids who are looking for an exotic pet that do not need a lot of things, the best animal to buy is a turtle or tortoise. Turtles basically don’t need anything expensive at all. Plus, they can live up to 40 years. However, just make sure not to drop them or it might injure their internal organs or even their shell.


Cats are another type of pets that only need minimal care. You can even leave them alone for several days with only food and water, and they’ll definitely manage on their own. Most domesticated cat species are also not messy, so you won’t have to clean up after them. Apart from requiring less care, cats and are sweet and very cuddly.

Guinea Pig

Guinea pigs are also part of the list of pets that are very easy to take care of. They are very playful and unlike most rodents, they are active during daytime. They also do not bite and do not require an exercise wheel to keep them fit.

Negotiate with the Apartment Caretaker

No matter how well we were able to negotiate our monthly apartment rental, there will be times when funds will be short and we won’t be able to afford the monthly rental. In this case, we have the option to ask our landlord for some leeway.

Now, what if you’ve tried asking for leeway in the past, but it didn’t work? Should you just forget about asking and find a way to get the necessary amount instead, even if you have to take out a loan? Not really. Perhaps you simply need to learn how to negotiate properly.

Keep a Cool Head

Bear in mind that landlords really do not appreciate excuses. This is especially true when money is involved, which is why you need to a keep a cool head. If you come off as insistent or demanding, there’s a good chance your request for leeway won’t be granted.

Explain Thoroughly

There are several possible reasons why you may not be able to afford apartment rental at that time. Perhaps you needed to take care of unexpected expenses in connection with getting a master’s degree. Maybe you just lost your job because the company you worked for went bankrupt and you’re still looking for a new job. It doesn’t matter what your reasons are, you need to explain it as clearly as you can.

Pay Diligently

If your landlord grants your request, be sure to show your appreciation by always paying the rent on time when you already have enough cash. Being late on your payments even when you can clearly afford to pay on time will only get you on the bad side of your landlord.

Final Thoughts

Although apartment landlords may seem overly strict, they’re actually easy to negotiate with if you just take the time to talk things over in a calm and reasonable manner.
