I am not sure what to do…I purchased a Bearded Dragon after already having one Crested Gecko and one Leopard Gecko.
My dad had stomped his foot after the Leopard Gecko and said no more animals.
This is going to be the last reptile I get before moving out. I just wanted more of a companion lizard. One that wants attention and is basically like a dog but a lizard. I found the perfect one on Morph Market and made my purchase.
I told my mom that the lizard would be arriving on Tuesday and that the person gave it to me for free…I completely lied out of fear.
I put the pros and cons together before purchasing the animal and knew that there were twice as many pros than cons. I also have everything to take care of the lizard. I had SEVERAL extra items from my Leopard and Crested Geckos. He will be getting somewhere with a happy home.
My mom wants me to rehome him…yet, I paid a lot of money on him and really want to care for him and can. I never purchase animals without the equipment that I need for them.
What should I do? I don’t want to give the animal up…and I can care for it…but my parents are the ones that do not want the animal, however, they are not the ones paying for it. I am using my own money to take care of my animals. They helped with start up costs and that was it.
They will not even give me the reasons why they do not want me to have the animal. The only thing I get is “When you move out you may have to get an apartment that makes you pay extra per animal.” The thing is…I do not have to buy those apartments.
What do you think?
