Websites every pet owner should know about – Part 6

If you want a new pet, (what is a Kiss Me I’m Irish Eclectus, anyway?) or if you have questions about the pet you have, (can I teach my pet rat to play with me?), the Internet is a great place to look for information about breeds, pet care and sites to talk to other pet lovers online. For casual users of the web it is difficult and time consuming to navigate through dozens if not hundreds of sites to find the one you need. This collection of sites include those with information, advice and special features, as well as sites where pet owners are welcome to share and brag about their pets and meet other passionate pet owners. Many go beyond dogs and cats and have information on small animals, reptiles, fish, birds and even insects for the adventurous pet owner.
