You’ve heard of a pocket watch, but what about a pocket pet? That’s right, a pocket pet is a small, furry little pet that can fit straight in your pocket! The pets that fall into this category are animals like rats, hamsters, hedgehogs, gerbils, and their slighter larger counterparts such as chinchillas, or guinea pigs. While these pets may not require daily walks or get excited about belly rubs, they’re still fun and unique animals.
Before you decide to go out and purchase a pocket pet, it’s important that you know what type of living arrangement it needs, what it eats, if it needs exercise, and what type of veterinary care may be necessary. Each of the tiny pets listed above should be cared for just as traditional pets. To learn more about each of these pocket pets, read the articles below.
