Be it puppies, kittens or any other young of your pets, have you thought about selling them? Personally, I think that is a great idea and I have started to do it. I have discovered that it saves on cash. There are some pets you can not handle this way e.g. the goldfish as they have a really high death rate. Actually, I think they are the most delicate pets. I have bought my kid a goldfish so many times and one way or the other, I always end up flushing the dead goldfish in the toilet. Sometimes the cat eats the pet and my daughter cries so much. I am currently in my third generation of pets. I started off with two puppies, a male and a female one. I also had a male and a female kitten. The four grew up together so they did not fight, like many cats and dogs do. After the dogs and cats reached maturity, I had a litter of puppies and kittens join the family. Soon after that I kept two puppies, male and female, and also two kittens, male and female. I sold the rest of the young, and also both sets of parents. The process occured again and now I am rearing my third generation. I think it's a pretty good idea and now I don't have to buy pets all the time.
