Small animal pets make for great family friends as they are easily fed, caged, and cared for
In general, children less than 7 years old should always be supervised around a small animal pet that is outside its habitat. Responsibility for feeding the pet, cleaning its habitat and looking after its needs should not solely be a child’s responsibility. An adult must oversee the small animal pet’s care.
The ever-curious ferret is a furry ball of energy when awake and a limp ragdoll when asleep. Ferrets live for about five to seven years and are full of personality. Some are shy, while others are rough-and-tumble characters. Ferrets should be neutered or live in same-sex pairs/groups. A ferret can be kept as a single pet as long as the owner is attentive. All ferrets require a few hours of out-of-cage playtime or free-roam of a ferret-proofed room. Most ferrets won’t mind being held but typically prefer to be off exploring. Grooming needs are a bit higher than other small animal pets because, in addition to regular nails trims and occasional coat brushing or baths, ferrets need regular tooth brushing. Yes, ferrets can be litter-trained. Special note: Young ferrets are known to go through a nippy phase, and the hammocks or sleep sacks ferrets need must be laundered at least weekly.

No! Please, never ever get an exotic pet! Arctic foxes deserve good habitats, and the only place fit for them is their natural habitat...the Arctic Circle! It is animal abuse to get one, not to mention illegal, inconsiderate, and flat-out crazy! If they get lost, they are a very dangerous to other pets, small humans, and their own selves! If you really want an Arctic fox, get a dog that acts/feels/looks like Arctic foxes!Dogs and cats are wonderful, but they aren’t always the right fit for every pet parent lifestyle. Small animals are ridiculously cute and easy to care for making them the perfect pet friend! They even spend about two hours a day self-cleaning - how cool is that?

But what’s life like when your animal friend is the size of your palm? Tonight, takes a look at pint-sized pets and their owners who care for their not-so-tiny needs.Fancy mice can be fun little pets. They come in all sorts of colors, fur and ear variations. They come in curly fur, satin fur, long fur, normal fur, and no fur just as an example. They can live happily in a cage as small as a ten gallon tank and females can get along great in groups whereas males generally don't get along with each other and can be quite suited as single pets. Some love exercise wheels and they can be very interactive and sweet with their humans. Unfortunately their lifespan is only 1.5-2 years and they have an outrageous smell, particularly the males. A couple drops of vanilla in the male’s water bottle may help with this but it’s still quite offensive and the reason why I didn’t pursue mice longer! They are prolific breeders and are often sold in pet stores as food for other animals so they are usually very cheap, $2 or so for an adult.
