Some tips for wanna be pet owners:

Choose wisely when you purchase a pet. Remember, your the one who will probably end up taking care of it. Don't get an animal that you don't have the time to take care of properly.

Don't ever spontaneously purchase or take home an animal, even if it is the cutest thing that ever lived. Choose your pet carefully, research, ask other pet owners lots of questions.

While pet stores are a good place to purchase some animals, do not rely solely on the sales-persons advice. There are many knowledgeable people who work in pet stores, there are also many who don't know diddly.

Try to find a store or private business that specializes in the animal your thinking of bringing home. There is a plethora of information on the web and from news groups and personal home pages. You might find a lot of conflicting information to sort through, but you can get a general idea of what kind of care the animal will need.
