Parrots may be adorable pets and beloved additions to a family, but that doesn’t change the fact that a parrot is still a wild animal. A domesticated animal is genetically different from its wild counterpart. Dogs are a prime example of this – though they all descended from wolves, they have been selectively bred over many generations and are now genetically distinct from their wild ancestors.
Hamsters are undeniably some of the cutest little animals in the world. If you’re anything like me, your heart instantly melted when you first saw your new little fur ball sit up and hold a treat in their little paws. There truly is no joy quite like watching your pet’s eyes grow wide as you hand them a little tidbit that quickly becomes a favourite treat! Our hamster, Bonnie, has been in our family for just over a year now and we still find new favourite treats every day.
