I routinely receive emails from people stating their support for the right to own exotic pets. Some samples:

"You have as much right to care for those animals as I do my own cat or dog."

"Reading your page on why they should not be banned really convinced me."

"Some people don't understand, and even criticize exotic animal lovers thinking that they are uncaring and bad people; when in fact it always seems to be just the opposite."

I routinely receive emails from people in all walks of life stating their support for the right to own exotic pets. These are unsolicited, unscripted, and come from the heart. I am priviledged to reproduce some of them here. Legislators, take notice!

"I just wanted to share with you that I thought what you are doing for these animals is wonderful. Some people don't understand, and even criticize exotic animal lovers thinking that they are uncaring and bad people; when in fact it always seems to be just the opposite. After reading what you do for these animals, and how you care for them as if they were you own flesh and blood, I don't see why anyone (i.e., the government) would want to take that away from you. You have as much right to care for those animals as I do my own cat or dog. Well I just wanted to share that with you, and let you know that I think you are doing a great job for a great cause." Erin R.

"I had never heard of a serval before, but wanted to drop you a note to say how much I thoroughly enjoyed your site! It's clear that you love your cat very very much, and the information in your site is very well thought-out and presented. I never knew much about owning an exotic animal, just never gave it much thought except "oh, probably it's not a good idea". Reading your page on why they should not be banned really convinced me - and I especially liked the opening about the Dihydrogen monoxide - I thought that was a GREAT point and really gets the reader to open their mind. People seem to forget to look at all sides of a situation before passing judgement." J.D.
