Pets For Keeps

So you want to keep a pet?

Keeping a pet can be fascinating and great fun. You don’t have to be an expert either. But it is important to choose the right pet: one that will fit in with your family and surrounding, one that you can afford to keep, one that you will enjoy looking after, and – most importantly of all – one that will be happy with you.

This book is packed with useful information about budgies, hamsters, cats, guinea-pigs, mice, rabbits, gerbils, canaries, bantams, rats, goldfish and dogs – any one of which might be the ideal pet for you!

Dick King-Smith’s expert advice, and his amusing stories about some of the hundreds of pets he has known and loved, make this a practical and entertaining book that will be enjoyed by animal-lovers everywhere.
