Apartment living may not seem ideal for pet owners, but don't be deterred — there are ways to make it work. Some cats, dogs and reptiles do well in smaller spaces.
Cats groom themselves, don't need to be walked and even make use of vertical space. This means they find creative ways to entertain themselves indoors, like climbing on windowsills or shelving, according to PetMD. Plus, they sleep a lot.
Fish occupy minimal space and are a low-maintenance choice for apartment dwellers. According to PetMD, there are also health benefits to owning a fish.
Other tank pets, like snakes and geckos, "are excellent pets for kids and apartment dwellers alike," according to ForRent.com.

Ferretti said sales were "going well," though others have characterized ticket sales as sluggish with Brazil mired in its worst recession since the 1930s. Unemployment has reached 10 percent, as has the yearly rate of inflation. The games open in 2 1/2 months.
