All About Family Pets: The Mom Hour, Episode 71

If you’re a regular listener, you know all about the kids in Meagan’s and Sarah’s houses. But we haven’t shared much about our furry, feathered and scaly friends on the podcast. In this week’s show we talk about family pets – including the ones we own and have owned – and how they impact our lives as we raise our families.

(We also discovered something that neither one of us knew about the other until we recorded this episode. Who knew!?)

For tips on adding a new pet to the family, what kinds of caged creatures tend to work better than others, finding pet care while you’re traveling, dealing with the loss of a pet, and just how much help to expect from older kids who promise they’ll help take care of a new pet, listen to Episode 71 now!

  1. My husband is allergic to cats and we have had great luck with Siberian Forest cats. You have to go through a cat breeder which is mildly creepy, but these cats are total sweethearts.
