Your Kids Want a Pet, You Dont Want To Pet Anything


"Mom, can we get a puppy?" Who hasn't heard that line before? The kids think it's time for an addition to the family, but you know you don't have time for a family pet.

We've got the perfect solution to make everyone happy!! Hermit Crabs!!

Now before you start to panic because you just heard the word "crab", just listen! They're not that bad. Trust me, I've had a few and after a while they were definitely part of our family.

Let me tell you why you should be convincing your kids to get a hermit crab:

1. They don't bark, chirp or meow
2. They won't pee on your carpeting
3. You don't have to train them
4. They won't climb up your screens or run away
5. They're very easy to care for
6. Your kids will love them more than a puppy!!

Hermit crabs do not need attention every day or even need to be feed everyday?.that's the best reason already! Hermit crabs live in smaller cages and stay in side of a shell. They eat hermit crab pellets and drink water from a sponge.

Believe it or not, hermit crabs are even FUN!! Because they live inside their shells, you can buy shells for your kids to decorate how they want and then the shells are placed inside the cage for the hermit crab to switch shells and live inside the painted ones! It's so neat and your kids will be so thrilled.

Give hermit crabs a chance?
