Dogs and cats demand a lot of care, love, and attention.
But people these days are busy and impatient. They do want pets but cannot devote a lot of time and efforts.
We understand the plight.
From guinea pigs to rabbits, here are some low-maintenance pets that can surely make you feel loved without demanding a lot from you.
Guinea pigs are one of the most active and lively pets to have.
Initially, they might seem inexpressive, but once they settle down with you, you will be able to understand their emotions.
All they need is a spacious cage, fresh water, regular food and proper ventilation.
Further, they are easily available for as cheap as Rs. 600 and live for about 4-6 years.

They are available in almost all pet stores and can live for 5-15 years.
It is ideal to buy them in pairs.
Turtles can live up to 80-100 years. So, it is likely that if you pet one, it might turn out to be the oldest member of your family.
