It's incredibly important that no matter what kind of small friend you bring into your life, you have the proper small animal supplies to go with them. Because its worth noting that whether you are bringing home a mouse, bunny, chinchilla or ferret, they all need things to keep them safe, happy, healthy and of course, to make your life easier!
Small Animal Bedding
Small animal bedding and litter is a very important part of keeping most small animals. It gives them a really snuggly soft place to play and sleep, while also being a safe litter of sorts that you'll want to clean out regularly. Now, there are dozens of different options when it comes to bedding and litter, and lets just say that very rarely is there a truly wrong choice, it's more a matter of what's right for you and your pet, which is why we have a nice list for you to inspect below.

Small Animal Collars
Small pet collars aren't just cute accessories, they can also be very important if, much like a dog, your baby happens to make it out of the house unsupervised. Now, I know this is the thing we all strive to avoid and I have no doubt you are very careful, but stupid things happen to the best of us and it's always best to be prepared.

Small Animal Harnesses
Moving away from collars and why they are important for unexpected trips, harnesses make planned trips safe and sound! Small animal harnesses are really useful for when you want to take your little buddy out and about, because it's good for your bunny, ferret and rat friends to get out into the grass too! And these are specifically designed so that your little critter won't wiggle out of their harness! They are escape artists, after all.

Small Animal Leashes
And of course, what would a harness be without a leash to attach to it! You've got your choice in length and of course, color! It's always nice to have choices, so that you can make the right fashion decisions for you and your family. Of course, figuring out what length you and your small pet like is also pretty good.

Small Animal Food Bowls
Having something to put all that small animal food in is important too, so having sturdy bowls is really important. Having ones that either attach directly to the cage bars or is heavy enough not to get knocked around becomes especially crucial when you're trying to avoid additional mess in your buddies home.
