Exotic pets???

Do any of you, or someone you know, have exotic pets like birds, reptiles, small mammals? If so, has there ever been a need for a sitter? Would you, or have you used a sitter for your exotics? It seems many friends, family and neighbors find these pets interesting but want no part of caring for them while you're on vacation.

Depends on the level of care needed. I had snakes as a kid. 4.5 ft ball python and a 9 ft red tail boa. A good feeding before you leave and no worries.

I had a bunch of snakes years ago. As mentioned, above a feeding before you go and a reliable heat source and you should be good.

Animals such as lizards, birds, and others require more constant care than a snake.

Yeh, I know snakes are easy. I was thinking mostly about birds and small mammals like ferrets. Maybe fish and lizards that require daily feeding and/or live food.

I've managed exotic pet shops and owned exotics. Work is hard to find, so I'm thinking of starting a sitting service. There's lots of birds and small mammals in the NE Atlanta area.

Gotcha. Your post makes more sense now. I read it as you were looking for an animal.

That's cool. I would maybe go make a post over at atlantareefclub.org or if there are other clubs in the area, post there too. You may have to make a few other posts just to show that you know how to care for them. All you need is a few clients to start to start he word of mouth referrals.

I have two names I'm considering for the sitting biz, Suburban Safari and Parrots to Ferrets. Which one do y'all like?
