Bringing a pet into your home can be an exciting occasion. Perhaps you are looking for a companion or a new form of responsibility. No matter what the reason may be, man’s best friend can be a lot of work.

For those in search of less commitment, adopt our favorite succulent pet, Kalanchoe tomentosa ‘Chocolate Soldier,’ into your home.

Not only can you pet the plant with its fuzzy, velvet-like bristles, it is also low-maintenance. ‘Chocolate Soldier’ can withstand a bit of neglect so let it beautify your windowsill with morning sunlight and a bit of water.
