From reading my previous post, you now know about the responsibilities that comes with pet ownership. Hence, it is time to test yourself  and see if you deserve to continue your journey to getting a pet by participating in this little test I designed.
'The Responsibility Test', is the second of many tests as well as checklists to come for you to participate in this series of 'Pet Ownership' segment of mine. Here is the starting line on your journey into the world of pet ownership guided by me.

All you need for this test are:
  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Calculator (if you prefer)

In this test, there will be a total of 15 questions. Each question comes with 3 selection of answers accompanied by it's value that you have to choose. When you have chosen your answer for your first question, write down it's value on your piece of paper or add it into your calculator. Move on to the second question and add the value of your chosen answer to the first value. Finish the test and you would have the grand total which will refer you to your result.

There are 3 outcomes to this test. One is good, the other one is not so good and the last one is just bad. I wish you all the best of luck.

Congrats! Your instincts on pet care is just spot on! Kudos to you, feel free to move on to the next test and continue on your journey to pet ownership without having to repeat this.
If you scored in between 16-30 (AMATEUR HOUR)
You did good. I'm sure you could do better. Better luck next time.
If you scored less than 15 or higher than 30 (CLUELESS)
Fail. I'm afraid you are not ready to have a pet yet. Do more research and I'm sure you will be on the right track to pet ownership.
