By Cody Subscribe to RSS | February 27th 2012 | Views:

Squirrels are among the cutest pets in the households. They are quick, energetic, and loving pets. These days, most pet lovers are increasingly showing interests in gifting their toddlers with pet squirrels. However, finding the right pet squirrel is not going to be as easy as it might sound. There are certain things you need to keep in mind while buying a pet squirrel.

Things to remember while buying a pet squirrel

The first thing you got to do is just check whether the laws in your state permits having squirrels as pets or not. Check with the local authorities whether housing squirrels in your state is allowed or not. For this purpose, you may surf the web and get the contact details of the Local Wildlife department and check with them about the do’s and don’ts involved in owning a pet squirrel in your area. Just to be on the safer side you may also check with health department in your area to gather more information regarding squirrel ownership in your place. Once you realize that the laws are in your favor then the next thing that you have to do is to find a potential breed of squirrel. For this purpose, first you have to surf the web and find the names of the popular dealers of squirrels in your area.

Next, the trick lies in finding the right breeder. This may not be as easy as it might sound because there are lots of breeds of squirrels available in the pet stores. Make sure that you find the most experienced dealer in your area who is an expert in selling exotic pet breeds of squirrels. If you don’t have much knowledge about the breeds then you may go on and ask your dealer which breed would be good. You may sit and spend some time gathering information on getting familiar with the various breeds of pet squirrels and their habits. There is nothing wrong in being extra careful in finding the perfect breed of pet. Just make a small comparison among all the breeds with respect to their appearance, size, color and other things. Select the squirrels that have smooth fur/coat on their body. Also see to that there is no the pet squirrel has a clean nose, bright eyes, average-weight, and an overall good health.

Finally, you may choose the domestic captive breed of pet squirrel from the lot. Make sure that the breed is easy to take care and easy going when you have them in your hands. After you take them in your hands and if they remain calm or if they are inactive then it means there is something wrong with that particular pet. So choose the one that is active, energetic, bubbly, and playful. However, as a word of caution I would also like to bring out the fact that choosing a pet squirrel that is too energetic and lively is also not advisable for the pet lovers. This is because; the ones that are too energetic may not give you a bit of headache at home as well. You may have a hard time managing and looking after them especially if it is unlocked from its cage.

And coming back to breed of the pet squirrel just make sure that you don’t select a breed that is too rare in your area. This is because, if any one of the pair is gone, then it would be difficult to find the pair for the one that is left out. So that is in brief about how to buy the right pet squirrel. To know more about the behavior and habits of the pets, you may watch TV programs on cable connections powered by any of the popular connections such as the Time Warner TV.
