Birds are real nice and can be trained. In my opinion, you should get a cockatiel, small white birds with a mohawk. They are sold in pairs cause they can get lonely but if you are willing to spend time with it, a single bird will be happy. they are easy to take care of. the hardest part is clipping theyre wings which can be done at home or at the petstore. There are a large variety of birds. They say they make lots of noise, but that depends on your birds personality, surroundings, type, and how many you have. They can be silenced by putting a cloth over the cage.
I think that dogs are the best pet so if u like small pet get a small dog like a dash hound they are so nice but if u do not what a dog fish are good pets to! If u are looking for a dog or cat u should go to a local ospca they have very cute animals there!
