A well-known fact that kids and Pets get along well together. Most children just love kittens, puppies, hamsters and Guinea pigs. There is a family that from generation to generation has already been made to have in the house Pets. Child birth is in the company of four-legged friends, and can’t even imagine that there is different.
But not everyone has the opportunity to buy a puppy or kitten because of time constraints, or from a mere reluctance to Tinker. Usually in such cases the children clamoured, and sometimes require to have a hamster, fish, parrot, dog, chinchilla, well, at least someone! The list can be continued indefinitely. To acquire a living being, a true friend to communicate with him.
Animals are friends, not toys
The beneficial effect of animals on children’s psyche proved a long time ago. Living beings create a sense of mental equilibrium and complete fusion with nature. We must not forget that the co-existence of the child and the pet will not be as perfect. First of all, it is a huge responsibility.

Perhaps, the selection of animals fit to fulfill this goal, one of the most important tasks to be decided by the breeder when organizing home farms. From its correct decision depends on many things: will you continue to engage in farming? as the fate of wildlife to you? how you spend the funds and what will get the profit? Etc.
People who have no practical skills in housing, feeding and caring for your Pets, we can recommend first to breed rabbits unpretentious and learn about their biology, and then to purchase predatory fur-bearing animals. It is much easier for the novice breeder, and practical experience you will gain faster. Rabbits unpretentious, they have a fairly limited need for care, they offer an undemanding to feed.

Everything is obvious and simple – the way the more natural beauty than Manichev her pretentious and “alien,” the cat in General smarter.
