Pet names - Tagging your Pet

Sometime we sit stumped trying to think of a name for our exotic pets or, for that matter, any pet. Naming a pet isn’t always as straight forward as it seems. Let’s learn a bit about pet names, the most appropriate pet names for exotic pets, but also dog names, bird names, and cats. In addition, how they got those pet names.

As you sit there perplexed, looking at your new pet, consider what you want the pet name to depict.

How to make Halloween Costumes for Pets

Making costumes for your pets can be simple, and inexpensive, if not free. Everyone has old clothing or clothing we don’t wear or need, taking up space, that could be used for other things. That size six wardrobe put away 15-years ago in all likelihood will never see the light of day again. We also have a whole lot of stuff in our junk drawers that could easily be used to decorate costumes. With a little imagination and improvising skills this could result in some mighty cute costumes.

How do we Learn to Value Life

How do we learn morals, how do we learn to value life and to respect all life? Why do some children learn to value life and others don’t? A tribute all parents who set a moral standard.

I had witnessed many atrocities over the years. During the year we lived in Oklahoma, we went on a drive in the countryside; one of many. On this particular ride we witnessed a pickup truck deliberately swing to the other lane to run over a beautiful painted turtle. We could hear the teenagers laugh as they roared off into the distance. Would there be less bullying?

Hamster - House, Feed, and Care

Hamsters can be excellent pets. My family and I have had many happy experiences with the exotic pet hamster.

How to feed, house, and care for the hamster.

Hamsters should be purchased between the ages of four and seven weeks of age. When the hamster is purchased young they are easier to tame and handle. Young children should be supervised 100% of the time when handling the hamster. The hamster could become afraid and bite the child or the child could accidentally drop the hamster injuring it. Hamsters are more inclined to bite than rats.

Exotic Pet Laws

I grow more concerned about the trend of the changes in exotic pet laws. I think you should too. These laws are taking yet more rights away from the citizen. It is usually the same people that call for less government. They create more. I am not referring to either political party as I belong to none. In all consciousness I cannot stand behind or proudly say I am a…..! Just fill in the blank, republican, democrat, etcetera. The current political parties dishonor our nation. They do not represent the people of the United States of America, they stand for the companies that seem to be running the country, and they stand for their own political agenda. They stand for reelections, for themselves or for their party. How can they possibly be fair about laws concerning exotic pets? Now that is off my chest I’ll continue. Yes, the Department of Wildlife or Department of Fish and Game, has a great deal to do with exotic pet laws, but don’t think for a minute they are not as corrupt as our other representatives are. They or fairly, many of them also seem to have a bug up their not so sunny place machismo (as far as I am concerned the female gender can have this affliction too.) An exotic pet does not necessarily equal a dangerous pet. What? If it were true we’d see these headlines! Stay tuned for the attack of the dwarf hamster! Mini lop rabbit wipes out apartment complex. Corn snake goes berserk hissing owner to…death by tickle? I don’t like making light of a serious matter, however some of the new rulings include non-dangerous animals. Our laws never made it out of the archaic epoch to allow ferrets in the state of California. Read the full article! Exotic Pet Laws

Pet Rock - Care Guide

Pet rocks were once a trendy pet, if your friend had one you had to have one too! Exotic pets seem to go in and out of style; evidently pet rocks are becoming popular again as people go retro. Pet rocks are popular exotic pets!

Hopefully people have learned their lesson. After the rocks were fashionable, the thrill was gone, pet rocks were released into the wild causing a serious overpopulation problem. When freed in a non-native habitat they can cause grave problems. They have been known to bite people’s toes when they least expect it. Read the entire article!
