I was just wondering how old legally do you have to be to own a Small Pet such as hamsters, gerbils, mice etc.?
Also is the age limit different for owning a rabbit or guinea pig?
Thanks for your help! XX :D
(Please no rude comments… I’m not saying I’m actually thinking of buying a pet myself, i was just curious!) X
If you want to know the age requirement for *buying* a small animal, this depends on where you live. It’s usually 18 years, or whatever is considered as "adult" in your area. You can be younger if your parents or another adult is with you.
As for having a small animal as a pet, you can be any age as long as your parents or guardians allow you to have one.
