About Animallama – Small Pet Care Blog

by Monika Kucic

Welcome to Animallama, a blog educating small pet owners on how to take good care of their adorable pets!

My name is Monika and I started this blog because I wanted to help pets and their humans on their journey. Our goal is to take part in educating and informing small pet owners of the best ways to care for their fur friends.

If you’re an owner of small pets such as guinea pigs, rabbits, rats, mice, or hamsters, make sure to read through our posts to find valuable tips on how to keep your pets happy and healthy! Our blog posts are written by experienced and knowledgeable small pet owners with years of experience.
