That in the state of NJ it's illegal to buy & sell turtles.
The Bobster & I had decided that Cheeks was old enough for a pet.
I wanted low maintenance so I suggested a turtle.
Little did I know, they poop & you have to constantly take care of them.
I found this out after the fact.
Off we go.
Local chain pet store.
Ask the associate for turtles & she says
"Oh, I'm sorry, they are illegal in NJ"
Is this like illegal aliens? They will move in, get health care and govn't spending?
Oops, sorry, had to be a bit snarky there.
It's illegal to sell them.
Apparently you can get disease from them.
So Cheeks is still petless.
I'm thinking goldfish.
Change the water, feed it, your done.
What kind of pets do your kiddo's have?
