The freshwater aquarium - the most popular being the goldfish. Watch the fish swim around just a few minutes a day can reduce your stress level. You can even submit a hermit crab in the aquarium for additional interest.
Cats - Cats are fun and very nice to snuggle in. They love to play and require little maintenance. If you are happy to train them to use the kitty litter for her toilet, this could be your choice. Cats still love the outdoors and it is not uncommon nowadays for people to walk a cat on a leash.
Guinea pigs, hamsters and mice - these animals take very little space because they live in cages and are also large animals if you have children. The cage can hold toys game like wheels and a sandbox. One thing to note is that Guinea pigs and hamsters are nocturnal animals which means that they prefer the night to the day.
