- Make sure that the person you are gifting really wants a pet and can give them the proper care and attention.
- Are they allergic to the pet you have picked out? This may seem like a dumb thing but it is very common for people to be sensitive to dander, so check this out before you make the leap.
- Do you have enough space for they to live a long and happy life with your family.
