    Did you ever have to give away a pet to move into an apartment or other reasons?

    Have you ever had to give up a pet to a new owner due to having to move into an apartment (that doesn't allow pets), or in case of other reasons? Back in college I had lived with a few friends, we were allowed pets at this location, so we thought we'd be good there until we got good jobs...

    Actual pet sharks you can legally buy

    I would love to have an aquarium with a few sharks, but the real ones. I am aware there are some smaller fish classified as sharks, but I want real deal sharks, like the ones in Jaws. I know, not going to happen, but are there any smaller sharks that come close to that look?

    Have you ever walked your cat?

    One thing I find people don't really do, is walk their cat. I know some people who do it, but it seems to be something people don't like to do much. Do you take your cats out for walks? If so, do they like it? If not, why not? I think cats love to go for walks if given the chance. And it's a...

    Do you ever cage your dogs?

    I used to cage my dogs when I first became a dog parent. Thankfully I no long put my dogs in any cages. Do you ever put your dogs in a cage? Maybe a small kennel or something along those lines. i used to, but we stopped because I felt like it wasn't really needed. It was more for potty training...

    Do rabbits get along with dogs?

    As long as you have trained your rabbit well enough, he/she should be able to handle living with a dog. It probably would be best to pair them up with each other at a young age, so that they're used to each other.

    The rare tropical fish

    What are some really rare tropical fish that you can actually get as a pet? I love the idea of having an aquarium for tropical fish, and would love to include some rare ones if possible. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    Can a hamster be kept with a gerbil?

    Looks like there's already a topic similar to this here: But I'll asnwer it here. It's probably not a good idea to put two species of animals together, even if they're close in look and all that. I wouldn't put gerbils with...

    Should cats be punished for wrong doing?

    You should never punish your cat. For one, they don't know what they're doing is wrong. Like Pumpkin said above, your cat doesn't know that clawing your furniture is wrong. So berating them because of it is not helpful in any way. If a cat is not stopping with the furniture for example, buy a...

    Do cats meow only for humans?

    Yeah it's like a way to catch your attention. I think dogs even have their own type of bark geared towards humans. But with cats, they're a lot smarter, in that they meow for your attention. And that's the only purpose of them meowing, to key you in on important things. it may be because the cat...

    Rabbits , rodents?

    Well no, rabbits aren't the same species as rodents, they're part of the Leporidae family of mammals. Rodents are part of the Rodentia classification, so a bit different from one another for sure.

    Having one goldfish, is this doable?

    The current fish may be socialized with other fish, so including at least one or two more should be helpful. Of course, she can keep the fish all by him/herself, but it may give the fish more life to include some friends.

    Have you ever had to give a pet away?

    Years ago, before we got pets, my dad found an abandoned dog on the street. He was a cute little guy, but wasn't trained at all. At the point too, he was fairly old, and likely had no training at all. We tried to take care of him, train him, but it didn't help. We decided to give him to a...

    Field Mice as pets

    So this is weird, but my parents house has a field mice problem. They keep getting in under their sink and their cat keeps catching them. The other week my dad was able to catch one, and he admitted, they're cute little buggers. Instead of the cat killing them, or us tossing them outside, I was...

    Do bigger goldfish exist?

    I was thinking, it would be cool to have a tank with a few big goldfish. Do any exist that get bigger in size? And is it safe to have these bigger goldfish in with standard sized goldfish? I just want to make sure they can all coexist with each other.

    Plastic or metal hamster wheel?

    It's a given that when you get a hamster, you want to include the usual stuff in your cage. The big one is the hamster wheel. Those big boys need to workout from time to time. But, what is best? A plastic wheel or a metal one? I figure a metal one could cause more damage if another hamster is...
