Hi

Postby summer » Tue May 17, 2016 3:24 pm

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to introduce myself and say Hi.
I have researched on this forum numerous times, but never had any input or knowledge to share. I love exotics ( I have limited experience with them ) but I have owned and cared for a variety of animals and birds over the years.
In the next year or two or three I hope to adopt a few exotics after researching and doing some more homework and I felt this was a great place to start :)
I live in Pa, so if anyone else is from here, or has info to share about our states laws please feel free:) I have been in contact with the PGC, I would love to one day legally own a fox or smaller exotic cat. From the sound of it all, I have a lot of hoops to jump through. Not to mention the required two years of experience.
Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself and pop in every now and then, so if I do ask questions I don't feel totally scammerish :)

Welcome. If the PA regs give you a headache, you can always move over here to Ohio which is fox friendly. Not so friendly to most exotic cats anymore however.

That is a great idea @minervasden I have family in Ohio :) Unfortunately, there are unimportant things such as life and jobs that are higher on the priority list then a fox. And I have a slightly romantic view of cats unfortunately. As a child we went to a cabin in rural Pa right down the road from a retired zoo keeper from Florida. He had bobcats as house pets, and walked his mountain lion cub and wolves on a leash. I have no idea how legal or okay this all was, but it made a very big impression :) He still lives there...maybe one day I will get my nerve up and visit. He had amazing enclosures built and I am sure could be a wealth of information. However, living in such a remote area, I always had the feeling he wanted to be left in peace :)

Welcome to the forum! So glad you could join! : )

Its so awesome that you are doing research before you get them. It always helps so much (take that from personal experience). What species do you most want? There are so many awesome choices out there, it can be so hard to decide. Maybe finding a local breeder of one of the species will make it easier to choose?
