I am an exotic pet person. This came as quite a surprise to me when I moved to a new city and called a vet specializing in small animals to see if they could fit in one of my guinea pigs who had developed a sneeze during our move, but was told that the vet did not treat "exotic pets". Surprise! Both of my guinea pigs and my little mouse are exotic pets. I assure you they all felt quite fancy when I informed them of their status. (I also have enjoyed the upgrade to exotic pet person from crazy rodent lady.) As it turns out, rabbits, chinchillas, hamsters, turtles, frogs, snakes, are all exotic pets. And as un-exotic as your exotic pets may be, they can still pose a lot of difficulty when it comes to signing a lease.
