Paws to make a proper pet plan
As any owner will tell you, caring for pets
is a big commitment, but they will also
tell you that the challenges are more than
outweighed by the rewards.
A pet is part of the family, and whether yours
is a cat, or dog, a rat, or perhaps all three –
the decision to make a home for an animal
is one that will change your life.
The RSPCA website contains tips on
fi nding a good breeder, and advises that
puppy buyers “always make sure you see
mum and her pups together, and never
buy a puppy if you have doubts about
the breeder or situation.”
Of course not everyone opts for cats
and dogs for their family pet, and with so
much space, Argyll is also a popular place to
some larger pets, from ponies and donkeys,
to some more unusual ones, with alpacas and
peacocks among the eye-catching creatures
that can be spotted in the region.
Whatever the animal you choose to keep, you
will fi nd everything you need to care for your
pet available either in Oban, or close by.
