Something Furry Underfoot Review

Something Furry UnderfootSomething Furry Underfoot by Amy L. Peterson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

"Something Furry Underfoot" is an eclectic, humorous title which denotes that the book will probably be setup in the same manner. Once I started reading, I found it slightly witty with the usage of metaphors and silly expressive names used in context to share the phenomenon of stray animals having a place to stay in their home. These animals become part of the family, aside from their demanding degrees or careers of the parents (Mark and Amy) with four children already.

Amy L Peterson also clearly expresses tip points throughout the passages. The second tip stuck with me; clearly saying if you take one pet, you will easily take in another animal. So far, I took in a stray who was pregnant with babies of three and only kept one of the babies with the mother (so does this actually count for two? Then this rule would apply; otherwise, I do not plan to take in another). However, nothing like what was stated in the book where there are multiple animals in their household. 

Ironically, most of the animals are either exotic or pets that I would not typically want. I don't know how Amy did it, with a husband who kept bringing pets in and not sure if I would have dealt with it this long. Then they try breeding certain pets they've had in their home and realize it is not profitable as expected. I laughed at ferrets being like two year olds, not listening to orders. But the expense illustrated in the book, I see why I never wanted a ferret as a pet. Even to find one can be a difficult task as well as the expense of vet bills.

I agree that it is harder to say good-bye to a pet than hello as aforementioned in one of the tips. I still cry over one of my childhood dogs named Chico.

I would suppose those who are interested in pets, exotic animals, breeding, and a witty furry animal type of book as a pet owner may enjoy this read.
