Cats can catch dozens of birds a year and some dogs eat more in a day than a human.
I’ve never really been into the idea of having a pet before. My family had a cat when I was a child, but, to be honest, we never saw that much of it. However, now I find myself thinking how nice it would be to have the company of a pet in my (ground-floor) flat. But I don’t want to get an animal that is a big burden on both myself (I’m out most of the day) or the environment. Cats, for example, catch birds and mice. Dogs just mess everywhere. And a goldfish doesn’t really excite me. Is there such a thing as an environmentally friendly pet?
