    I'm 13 and I am interested in doing pet feeding to raise funds to buy a caique parrot (I adore birds). I would go in and feed and check on people's pets while they were on holiday. I am aiming to become a vet in the future and feel that this is a job that would help me get the experience I require. I would advertise my services around my town using flyers through doors. I'm very responsible and I have a lot of experience with animals (I have looked after/have experience with chickens, ducks, a tortoise, budgies, guinea pigs, rabbits, cats, dogs, gerbils, parrots, snakes, tarantulas, insects, pigeons, lizards, geese, scorpions, frogs, and fish [marine, tropical and freshwater]). I also have spoken to my school about this (they say it would be ok). I was wondering what people's thoughts on this were? I'm aware people aren't comfortable with teenagers doing dog walking but I guess this is different. How much do you think I should charge? Do you think it's ok? Also, I've checked the laws and rules and you wouldn't have to worry about insurance. I would say no to any dangerous pets (such as aggressive animals or those that are extremely poisonus) or those that require care beyond my abilities and I would be willing to clean cages, change toys, etc. if necessary.
