Owning a pet can be rewarding, but it doesn’t come without challenges. Anyone who has brought home a new animal for the first time has likely experienced the sudden feeling of not knowing what you’re doing.
Have you ever wondered if your snake can climb out of it’s tank? What about whether or not your pet hedgehog can get up and down your stairs? These types of questions tend to only come up when you realize you don’t have a plan to handle it.
With Fur, Wings, & Scaly Things, our goal is to answer all of these not-so-obvious questions so you can focus on enjoying your time with your new friend, instead of worrying that you’re doing something wrong.
