Top 5 worst pets to keep at home

5. Hamster

They chew all the time, which in daytime is funny and amusing. But when the night falls, you will definitely regret buying it. Moreover, they stink and live for only around 2 years, which is clearly too little if you managed to develop an emotional bond with the furry ball.

3. Tiger
