Your Kids Want a Pet - You Don't 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 constant attention, they don't need to be walked, and they don't need to be let outside to pee….that's awesome already isn't it?!  Hermit crabs are kept in smaller cages and live inside of a shell.  They eat hermit crab pellets and drink their 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 (or buy shells already decorated) and then the new shells can be 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 when a crab has chosen his/her shell as it's new home.   

There is obviously a bit more to owning a hermit crab so do some research and g ive hermit crabs a chance…
