Best Exotic Pets for an apartment living

Rabbits: There are nearly 50 breeds of rabbits that people like to keep as a pet. Most are social animals but they do not enjoy being held often. Rabbits are a suitable option for apartment living since they can be litter-box trained, groom themselves, and are relatively quiet. Many people allow their rabbits to roam free in their homes, which is a good way for them to get exercise. One drawback to keeping rabbits is that they like to chew and dig. You will need to ensure that you put enough effort into rabbits proofing and also training the animal to prevent any future damages. If you’re only allowing your rabbit outside the cage for a limited period of time then ensure that the cage your providing is large enough so that they have enough breathing and playing space inside the cage.

Guinea Pig: Guinea pigs crave socialization and are typically easy to handle. They make a “wheek” sound as a vocalization especially when they are searching for food, but it is not loud enough to disturb neighbors in an apartment setting. Their enclosures are also a manageable size. At the minimum, these rodents need a cage that has a 2- foot by 3-foot footprint. Height is not critical; they don’t tend to climb, so it does not need to be taller than a foot or 18 inches. It is best to keep them in same-sex groups. Hamster: They are an ideal apartment pet since they do not require a lot of space. They are quiet, clean, low maintenance, and don’t shed. Most allergy sufferers can live comfortably with a hamster in the house. Hamsters are easy to tame with regular handling. All a hamster needs is a 2-cubic-feet cage equipped with an exercise wheel, items to chew, absorbent bedding, a hiding spot, food, and water.

They can be very entertaining to watch. Hamsters are usually most active at night but they can be easily tamed and handled when they are giving regular attention.
