  1. Hi!! I’ve recently come upon your website, let me just say how wonderful it is! So much information! I love reading as much information as possible about my pets so I’m loving your site! Anyways, I’m going to download a few of these cards. But I also have Degus, a turtle and Axolotls! Could you make a printable card for those three as well? I would be so appreciative!

    1. OR one card to cover all my pets! I have many. Dogs (one is in her senior years and takes daily medications), cats, mice, rat, turtle, fish, Degus and Axolotls.. So it may be easier on my wallet if I had one card to cover all my fur babies instead of eight!

  2. I love these cards i have these in my wallet & Boyfriends wallet. We need ducks too. I have pet ducks if you could add that in.

  3. I think this is a fantastic idea. Myself being a senior at 74 y.o. I have some health problems. If I suddenly go in the hospital I would need someone take care of my pets till I come home.
