Somewhat. You need to be able to budget for them.

They are a luxury to someone who can't afford veterinary care or a pet-friendly home.

No they are part of the family. However, if you don't have the money to properly care for a pet you should not get one.

No pets are a must, a necessity as they are good for humans especially for children. Besides they don't ask for much, just love and care and in that respect they make us more responsible persons.
