CONVINCING PARENTS TO GET A PET
Arisheniah, 10, (aka deoxys123)
I never ever had a pet in my life, not even
fish. So I started reading books about rabbits.
The one thing that convinced my parents the most
was that they were clean animals (means that
they donít do accidents everywhere). Another
thing is responsibility. My sister and I said
that we would do all of the work. We will clean
and wash out the cages, feed it, refill its
water bottle, and let it have exercise. The
third thing is that during school we will put it
in its big cage with a toy so it wonít be bored.
We also need to know how to hold it. I also need
to pay 1/4 of the vet bills. So we went to the
pet store to see the pets. Thatís when I spotted
the rabbits. They were only $29.99! I could pay
for them myself. I showed my dad the pets and
heíll say weíre going to get it in two weeks.
Iíve also told my dad I did 5 1/2 weeks of
research. So all it takes is some research and
convincing. These are the steps to get a pet.

are afraid you wonít have a lot of time for it? I
suggest a small animal, then. A fish, guinea pig,
rat or mouse, would be good.
If you do have time on your hands, but donít want
your pet to take up your entire life, hereís what I
suggest... a small kitten, rabbit, or turtle.
If youíre positive youíll be able to care, nurture,
and spend tons of time with your pet, I suggest a
dog. Pets are a lot of responsibility. I would know
because I have 3 dogs.
Even though pets are a bit of trouble, itís all
worth it when you look into the face of someone who
always wants to be with you. Trust me, itís a great
