Exotic Pets that Need to Be Under Lock and Key


Queen- Dedicated to My Pet

Before choosing a new pet, no matter how unusual or exotic it might be, one should make sure that they are able to adequately care for it (for the long-haul) even once its novelty has worn off. Pets need food, fresh water, daily grooming, discipline, frequent exercise, and attention. Patience is also a plus! Pets can be destructive, but they can also provide excellent companionship, and even help us to better structure our daily activities of living!

Exotic Pets That Need to be Under Lock and Key!

I have an exotic pet!

It is a guillotine

that I enjoy taking

on scenic, country walks;

No need for anyone

to worry their pretty head;

I normally keep it

subdued with locks!

Sometimes, it gets

terribly hungry,

and this is when I feed it

a delectable fish head;

But, no matter how much

it desperately pleads with me,

I never let it sleep

with me in bed!

My guillotine has no tail to wag,

so when it gets excited,

it smashes its sharp blade,

up and down;

It can be so loud, at times,

that I often think it just might

awaken this entire

sleepy town!

So, you might

very well wonder

why I have a pet guillotine,

instead of a dog or cat?

Well, I find that it provides

great protection,

especially from those who come to my door

with their superficial chat!


Under Lock and Key

I really do not have an exotic pet guillotine, nor do I behead those who come to my door with their superficial chat. I love all of my neighbors! Furthermore, the pets that I do have (dogs and cats) will only attack actual predators and intruders. I will, too, for that matter :-) Ha Ha Hahaha...

      Definitely unique pet. Where can I get one?

      Strangely, I do not get too many solicitors at my door; it’s weird because I do have my pet locked up rather well...not even does the Avon Lady come around, anymore. Oh, well... (lol).

      I bet you don't get too many of those door-to-door political canvassers with this. Here in Virginia, we have a hotly contested governor's race set for November 7 and the political folks are out in force. I am no longer answering my door.
