Question by Nadiya O.: What Small Pet (preferably a rodent) Is Right for Me?
I have little experience with pets. However, I would like to get one that will be accustomed to my lifestyle. My life is undergoing some change, including divorce and the possibility of moving (I am a minor). I have two households, for my family is separated. As a result, transporting the pet may be an issue. I would have to take the pet back and forth to each household every several days; the size of the cage and materials may get in the way of this.
My mother has a single two-floor home with a fenced backyard of 900 square feet. My father has a two-bedroom apartment room with an outdoor community area (his landlord permits pets). I have enough space to house its cage and provide some playing area both indoors and outdoors. My father has a 25 square foot area in his living room in which it could stay; my bedroom has 150 square feet of free space.
I could devote at least an hour a day to playing with and caring for my pet, but I would probably do so for a couple of hours per day, but I am not too active. I have a sibling of 7 years who may occasionally interact with the pet, of course she will do so with supervision.
My parents do not want to be too involved in the care of the pet, but they will regularly take it to the veterinarian and purchase supplies for it.
They are prepared to spend up to $ 30 monthly for the care of the pet. The cost of materials is not a concern, but seeing that it is a rodent, my parents believe that it should not be higher than that.
My mother may be getting a cat, mostly likely a kitten, although this is not certain and may not occur.
I would like the pet(s) to be fond of cuddling. It would be nice if it were affectionate and intelligent. I am willing to be committed to it, although I will be going off to college in five to six years. It should be at a relatively low to moderate maintenance level.
Ultimately, I am looking for a companion, a soul, that I will give love to and that will (hopefully) love me in return.
I attend school from 7:30 in the morning (I get up around 6:30 or so) to 2:40 in the afternoon. I usually have two to three hours of homework per night. I would be willing to get up earlier for the pet.

Question by MATTHEW: Are there any cat carriers that will fit onto a bike?
I have 2 cats and live in a village with no public transport. I do not have a car at the moment and need to take my cats to the vets for their annual injections. I usually cycle everywhere. Has anyone seen a device/carrier that can be used on a mountain bike to transport my 2 cats to the nearest vet which is 4 miles away. No other way to get there until at least March when I get a new car.
Answer by Read More Books!
They make great backpack pet carriers that would probably be safe and work well, but I’m not sure how well 2 cats would fit into it. I guess it depends how large they are and how much they would care for 4 miles.

Not sure. I will say that I tried this with a baby once at the ball pool at McDonalds and it was frowned upon.

Question by Rhea: Has anyone had any experience with an international pet relocation service?
Has anyone had any experience with an international pet relocation service? We will be moving from US to Bahrain and will be moving our 3 dogs as well. I have been researching different pet relocation companies but wanted to see if I could get a different response on here. Any information would be helpful.

The best thing I can reccomend is looking up information online. I do know that the animals have to be updated on their vacceins and stuff 30 to 60 days before you go anywhere. Airlines like Delta will fly dogs that don’t fit in small carriers, and that weigh over 20 pounds, in cargo for $ 75 one way but will not do it during hot months due to the embargo act, and dogs smaller than 20 pounds and that can fit in small carriers can go in the cabin with you, and can fly anytime since the cabin’s temp can be adjusted. I think it’s one animal per passenger and they only allow 2 animals per plane, so you’d have to book ahead.
I’m sorry I couldn’t have been more help to you. I hope I did help in some way though.
