I’m so tired of people getting pets without learning how to take care of them
Dogs are omnivorous, cats are carnivorous.
If you don’t feed your cat meat, it will die.
Dogs need exercise every single day, not just when you feel like it.
Betta fish need a MINIMUM of 2.5 gallons sized tank.
Most pet fish you’ll see are tropical and need heaters.
Most reptiles need a humid environment. Your living room is neither warm enough nor humid enough.
Rats and budgies are highly social animals and need to live with others of their kind. Read: always get more than one.
Rats like to climb and need a cage taller than it is wider.
Goldfish grow to be 10"-12" and live to be 10-20 years. Yes even that cheap $0.50 one. They’re pond fish. And yes, their bodies actually do stay small if they’re kept in a small environment but their organs will continue to grow and will eventually crush each other, killing the fish prematurely.
Some fish will fight, kill, or eat each other and it’s not “just a fact of nature” it’s you not doing your research and putting the wrong species together.
It takes a few google searches and maybe twenty minutes of link clicking to learn the basics.
It’s not the responsibility of the pet store employee to teach you everything you need to know. The pet store employee might not even need to know what you need to know. All it takes to be a pet store employee is to be more than 18 years old.
I’m just tired of seeing uninformed people put their pets in poor situations. Just. Research. Just a little bit. One google search. Please.
take good care of your pets. keep them warm and happy. feed them the right stuff. pet them and tell them how much you love them and how good they are. you are all this animal has. they love you and their life is in your hands. don’t take your pets for granted.

For anybody who wonders how I have so many animals. (Some people assume my apartment must be gross and chaotic with 14 animals). This is my wall of love 🌹(minus my snake Sharron and my fish Robert)
The stairs help my 8 year old ferret get up and down and the bench is also a chest which opens up and holds all their food and supplies.
Nova fishing for peas. She was quite dutiful, going back and forth to make a little pea garden in the litter tray. It’s a shame her hard work was spoiled by her two cage makes sneakily stealing her fished peas instead of getting their own!
-pets have their own right to live and be happy
-they are not on this planet only to please you
-you are responsible for the health and well-being of your pets
-if you cannot or choose not to provide your pet with what it needs, you are being abusive (yes that includes birds, reptiles, rodents, and fish)
-having an animal in your life is a privilege, not a right
