Kids With Pets Do Better at School- Especially Rat Owners

Kids with pets tend to do better on their homework with rat and mice owners the best of all according to a new study which consisted of a survey of 1000 pet-owning children aged between 5 and 16. 79% of those surveyed believed their pets had a positive effect on their homework and schoolwork. Owning a pet can increase a child's sense of responsibility, nurture a more caring attitude, develop self-confidence and can even encourage a child to be more active or get outside more in the case of having a dog.

A pet is said to resemble their owner which I think is funny when I interact with my guinea pig, Professor Gerbils. Pets are entertaining and help comfort the owner when times are tough. It's like they know what to do to cheer you up whether it be a cuddle, lick, or Eskimo kiss!

Snakes are beautiful

I know many people are afraid of snakes, but I believe them to be big sweethearts. I've had two ball pythons since I was twelve years old. King and Queen are my cuddly scaled babies. They have never bitten any member of family! They actually enjoy the grass in my front yard, being held and bathes! I could never be afraid of them. I do understand people's fear though, why trust something the has sweated teeth? I think people need to expand their hearts, that logic can be used for more than just snakes!

Dressing up Dogs!

I find this adorable and funny. It reminds me of my chocolate lab before he passed. As a little girl, I would dress him up in my dress up clothes and parade him around my home. I miss him!

Did you know that is in fact legal in many US states and other countries to own skunks, fennec foxes and capybaras as pets? Skunks were originally used to scare rodents away from crops and require a fresh diet of insects, fruits, small rodents and eggs. Fennecs can become stressed in captivity, sleep most of the day, need a fennec buddy or owner that will stay with them most of the day and are the smallest canine. Capybaras are the world's largest rodents, can be kept in almost every state, you'll need to adopt at least 2 of them to keep them happy since they are social animals and their name means "water pig" which is fitting as they are semi-aquatic.

Cuddle Clones

There is a company that makes stuffed animal "clones" based on your pet. All you do is send a picture of your pet and answer some questions. Although they charge $199, the results are spectacular.

This is a recycling bin in the park. When you put in recyclables it dispenses food for the stray pets!
