I know you didnt mean me but I wanted to show that I put thought into obtaining my animals as well. As a former rescuer (I had to stop I was being over run by vet bills and I punched an idiot so I knew it wasnt good for me to actively rescue anymore) I know what happens to animals that dont have alot of thought put into it. Ones that are purchased just because they are cool and people want them. Also not only do you have to consider the specific animals care requirements and the cost of everything but also how many animals you have. Even with a very good paying job and being able to support as many animals as you want doesnt mean that you should own as many as you can support. There is a point that you need to look around your house and ask if you are a hoarder. The time and effort needed to care for the animals properly can get overwhelming and is emotionally draining. I have been at that point where I had several clutches of sulcatas, 6 hatchling cwds, 5 red eared sliders, and 4 beardies all these animals had medical issues and were rescues. Then in addition I still had my 6 dogs + my aunts 2 dogs + my sisters 1 dog, 1rabbit, 1cat, 2 tortoises, 2 land turtles, and my 7 toads. It gets overwhelming fast. Even though I had all the money for it and the room I still had to set aside 4 hours a day for light cleaning and feeding of all animals not to mention all weekend was spent deep cleaning everything.
