Dogs not your thing? Does the thought of a cat running around your house, jumping on your counters, leaving cat hair everywhere make you crazy?
Turtles might just be your ideal pet!
Don’t let these little things fool ya! Turtles do require specific care but once you learn how to keep them happy and healthy you’ll have hours of enjoyment, and a pet hair free friend! He won’t bark, need baths or need walks. He won’t sit in front of you begging for that last bite of hot dog or savory steak you just cooked on the grill. Turtles are cool pets for the right type of pet parent and people in Muncie, Anderson, Indianapolis, South Bend and the Michiana areas can call sit-stay-play to help care for their turtle or other pets.
Should you rescue a turtle or buy one from a pet store, we recommend you consult with a ‘turtle professional’ so they can get you hooked up with everything you’ll need to make the transition your home peaceful.
List of Turtle Supplies You’ll Probably Need to Buy:
- Water Plants
- Filtration System
- Aquarium Lights
- Heating Stone/Rock
- Turtle Food
- Turtle Treats
- Vitamins and/or Supplements
Take into consideration too that you might need a pet sitter for your turtle, yep, that’s right folks, a pet sitter. Should you decide to be away from your home for a couple days or longer Mr. Turtle will need a visit by a turtle savvy human. He can’t survive on his own for a prolonged period of time so having a pet sitter willing, ready and able to help is crucial to being a responsible turtle parent.
Hiring a pet sitter will be a huge relief for you and you won’t have to call your neighbor, friend or relative to help out. A pet sitter can feed your turtle, make sure the water level is appropriate, they’ll make sure the lights and thermostat are working in the aquarium. Should you have a power outage, the sitter will help take care of the issue and call your landlord or electric company if necessary. If the light bulb burns out we can run to the store and buy a new one.
We’d love to be your turtle sitter if you decide to bring a turtle into your life. Please contact us if you need a pet sitter. We work in Muncie, Anderson, Pendleton, Noblesville, Fishers, Indianapolis, South Bend and Michiana areas.
