I have always loved animals and have always had pets. I have had a wide variety of pets during the course of my life. Growing up on a country farm in rural Pennsylvania I had cats, dogs, and rabbits, Hamsters, Gerbils, and Turtles and even a pet Rooster. So I’m writing this blog in dedication to these pets and those that love them. I hope that it is both fun and informative. I hope you come away from this piece with a new view point on the creatures that bring so much joy into all of our lives. This blog is also there as a resource and sounding board for the rest of the pet owners of the world, so feel free to contribute and share your story with us as well. Conventional pets are fine of course, but I am most interested in hearing about more exotic pets that are kept in different parts of the world. Thank you.
