No, I don't like to have any animal as a pet, we used to have a dog at my parents' house and I think taking care of a pet is a huge responsibility. It is something you should do from the heart, with love and affection. Budgies, doves and penguins are so beautiul, and I really enjoy watching them but I hate seeing birds kept in cages..

Yes, I can see some of them everyday. Some birds they are living in the nests, and the cockroaches are live in sewers, and the fleas are living in the air, whereas the crabs, penguins, frogs are living nearby the water, and which are living on the roof and wall that are the spiders.
I can take the budgie as a pet, but it lives in a cage at home, it is very nice bird and can to talk with owner fluently.

Is this all the words, or am I missing something?

Yes. I could. Yes. I would.

There are many swallows, doves outside in my country. Also you can easily to see an insects like beetles, cockroaches in the garden. There are not animals and birds such penguins and budgie in my country.

There aren't penguins where I live. I would like to have one budgie as a pet, because I think it's very fun.

My family used to have a huge cage where a number of bugies were kept. They were given water, green vegetables, and seeds. One night, a cat attacked the cage and some bugies and chicks were gone. It was a tragedy!

yes i can see some of these animals where i live, especially insects. i usually see cockroach and beetle on a floor, millipede on the ground in the garden. Sometimes i see frogs near the lake, I'm really afraid of them. I've never seen penguin. I like having a couple dove as a pet because they symbolize peace.
