The house was really warm and cozy, it is desirable to have at least some kind of animal. But not to forget that we are responsible for those who tamed. Therefore, a pet must like each family member, and care must also be correct. But what kind of animal you can make a home? Who could it be – nimble the mouse, phlegmatic, good-natured cat or dog.

At the same time, to herbal pick up fleas almost anywhere, and even if the animal is not facing the street, it is still at risk, as fleas can be brought into the home on shoes and clothing.
