The next couple of posts are going to be about responsible pet ownership.
Part 1 will be a bit about animal psychology, the mental and emotional behaviors of prey animals vs. predatory animals, and bonding.
Part 2 will be about minimums of care and the finances of pet ownership, and who should and should not have pets as well as when is a good time and when is a bad time to get a new pet.
Part 3 will be addressed to people who like the idea of pet ownership more than the reality of pet ownership and are what I call "serial dumpers".
Part 4 will be about what I call "private rescue".
