* The pet shop in ''Film/TheBirds'' includes some exotic animals among its stock, including a keel-billed toucan and a monkey. Toucans are very active birds that require a full aviary, not a modest-sized cage too small for their wings to extend within, and monkeys in general make ''terrible'' house pets.

speaking of a lifetime of late night screaming, their life is fucking long. around 30 years. so when you get tired of the non stop owl shit and pellet cleaning and the fun of having an owl wears off, youre stuck with them. you cant just dump them in a shelter or release them. and even if you find an owl rescue to take them in youre still fucking them over because they will either [[DespairEventHorizon become depressed from the absence of their ‘mate’]] or [[AxCrazy act aggressively toward other humans they have not imprinted on]]. [[TearJerker they will never be able to be released into the wild]]\\

'''wire-man:''' Not to mention that as far as birds of prey go [[TheDitz owls are pretty dumb]]. The majority of their skull is occupied by their eyes. Their brain case is super small in comparison. This means they spook easily, will not learn commands easily (if ever), and will cause all sorts of mayhem on a regular basis. They’re best left in their natural habitat.

* Anyone attempting to feed an obligate carnivore (such as a cat or ferret) on a vegetarian or vegan diet is all but guaranteeing that the animal will starve to death, even if it actually eats the food. Obligate carnivores ''need'' the proteins found in flesh to survive. A vegetarian or vegan diet can be pulled off for canines, but only with special vitamin supplements and close monitoring. Please don't try it without the help of your vet (and really, if meat-eating is an issue for you, consider sticking to herbivorous pets - it's just simpler and easier on the animals). One couple in [[http://www.heraldsun.com.au/leader/west/kitten-nearly-dies-from-vegan-diet/story-fngnvmj7-1226682108386 Melbourne]] nearly ''killed their kitten'' while attempting to force the cat to go vegan.

* In the History Channel's documentary ''Film/{{Hippies}}'', the narrative of how LSD was invented is backed up by footage from early experiments with the drug, including a shot of a hamster trying to chew its way through the bare metal mesh at the bottom of its cage. Exposed wire-floor cages are ''terrible'' for pets' feet. (Also a case of ArtisticLicenseBiology, as the context implies that the animal is chewing the wire ''only'' because it's drugged out of its mind, but gnawing on objects and attempting to dig its way free is perfectly normal behavior for a hamster, and any other rodent, that feels frustrated.) Research animals were often kept in bare metal mesh cages back in the day. Things have gotten [[SocietyMarchesOn MUCH better nowadays]].
