Links to Animal-specific Websites (and other misc. things!)
Everyone seems to have a favorite type of pet. Dogs and cats are certainly on the top of the list around
the world, but there is an increasing trend in the popularity of small animals and exotics. Before you adopt
any type of pet, make sure you have done your homework! It is up to you to provide the proper environment
and lifestyle for your new friend. You can start your research by visiting the websites below. Enjoy!
- Madame Alto's Cat House - good tips on cat care plus the ongoing adventures of the online cats in the house!
- The Dog Owner's Guide - it doesn't get more complete than this! Anything you want to know about dogs, including a comprehensive list of the different breeds and their personalities.
- Dog Breed Info - do you need help in selecting the appropriate breed of dog for your lifestyle? Then search no further!
- The House Rabbit Society - a wealth of info about rabbits and their care. Please pay special attention to the section
about why you should never buy a bunny for Easter! Also includes a listing of associates in different states. The associates can help you find a bunny and rescue it.
- Heavenly Feathers - a site for all of the pet birds. I am being a very good kitty to include this. ;-)
- Exotic Pet Info - very thorough site about small animals and reptiles. I am confused as to why this woman thinks that
ferrets, mice, rats, hamsters and gerbils, and guinea pigs are exotic though! Oh well, there is good info there, worth checking out if you love the unusual critters.
- Ferret Central - nothing fancy about this website, but there is a wealth of information on fuzzies!
- A listing of ferret shelters - provided by the American Ferret Association. These are listed by state, and some of the shelters have e-mail and homepages.
- Equines of the World - dedicated to providing information about horses and their health as well as ending horse abuse!
- Tropical Fish World - because I spend so much time looking at the fish in our aquarium (and trying to figure out how to catch them I might add!), my female human
decided that I should learn more about them. This is a good site to do just that!
- Love pot bellied pigs? Check out this site for lots of great information on their care!
- Tetra Fish has a website that tells you all about keeping an aquarium as well as their products. The coolest thing about this site is the interactive
aquarium which is either a fun game or a tool to help you set up your aquarium correctly!
