The "Carpet Shark" is an adorable creature (when it's asleep). When you first see it in the pet shop you can't take your eyes off it, you start thinking of a name, where it's going to live and how great a companion it will make. You make the choice to purchase it and suddenly your hit with a reality which you were not expecting.

Actually, your new purchase should come with a tag saying " From now on... I am the center of your universe and you are my slave."

You find yourself dreaming, thinking and talking about your new companion... all the time. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as they do provide a lot of love, happiness and entertainment in your life.

There is a lot you need to know in order to keep them healthy and happy. This is why this website has been set up. I have researched and chosen the most relevant information so that you have a much easier way of finding out about the good, the bad and the ugly in fuzzy ownership and care.


I would like to thank Binxi, Bear and Sammy for inspiring me to build this site...your the best friends a human can have!
