Think twice about pocket pets

One of the most common things you hear about pocket pets like budgies are that they are low maintenance, easy, hardy, and social, a good 'starter pet'. What they don't tell you is the many hours of work that need to go into pocket pets to get them comfortable with humans. Budgies are easy to teach basic tricks, but first you need to sink hours into teaching them not to fear you. If you want a pet to snuggle, one that's happy to see you, and low maintenance, a budgie is only going to tick one box.
