Posted in Wikinut>Guides>Pets>Tips & Advice

Another challenge for Wikinut writers. Share your knowledge and experience with owning a Pet. Good articles will be listed here so people can learn about owning a pet from somebody who has actually owned one and shares their details, and tips, of pet ownership and responsible pet care.

To the Writers and Readers

To the Writers

Write an article based on your experience with owning a specific kind of pet. Pick a good title - something like "What is it like to Own a _____" is far better than "Guide to Owning a____" simply because there are more of the second type of article already out there, and less of the first.

Be as specific as you can about your pet, do not just say "own a fish" say "own an Arowana".

People want to read articles based on real experiences and your article will help. Use your own pictures if possible, or get copyright free ones from morguefile.com or wikimedia commons.

To the Readers

These are articles written by people on their real experiences owning real pets. Remember every pet is different, but the experience these folks have had may help you in deciding if a certain pet is the right one for you, or may give you some care tips and ideas on how to care for your pet that you may not have thought of.

I'll enter into the challenge the Mynah bird I taught how to talk only I wasn't able to take a picture of him/her, after I've finished the tourism article. Thanks, Mark.

I think I'll take you up on this challenge, Mark, but it probably will not be before the weekend because I'm one of the judges at the Centennial State Tournament, a public speaking and debating tournament for students in 7th through 12th grades. It's a four-day even starting later this morning so my time is going to be pretty tight starting today. Maybe I will be able to get to this article on Sunday--God willing and the creek don't rise.

I've already done a 'What's it like to Own a Cat?' piece. So I think I might be out of the running. Unless I can take my mind back to days of yore when I kept a budgie.
That might work. I think I might give it a go - but only MIGHT!
What great challenges you set for us Wikinutters.
And you're right - the title DOES matter - A LOT!

My darling cat is very ordinary, even though I've written about him several times online. Another great challenge here Mark.

Once we had pet animals in my house. I love the pet animals. This is the good idea to share the knowledge about pet animals to take utmost care about them. Thanks Mark.

No wonder you are a Star Page...love the animals galore. Also, love the idea of having pets brought to nursing homes...they are so therapeutic.
