I last blogged about the Meerkats in December as it was bought to our attention that the new craze was to have a Meerkat as a pet and this was causing concern.
Following the Compare the Market/Meerkat campaign, some thought it a good idea to have a meerkat as a domestic pet.
Meerkats are wild animals that should not be reared or breed at home and should remain in the South African deserts which is their natural habitat. They are group animals and get very distressed when they are not in their natural habitat or in a social group.
The Captive Animals’ Protection Society has set up a new website to help protect Meerkats and other ‘exotic’ animals from the pet trade.
