Question A bit morbid but do you have plans?

I know we've lost a couple members due to health reasons which leads me to this question...

What would happen to your critters if you (and your significant other) were to die suddenly? Do you have your animals willed to anyone? Will your immeadiate family take care of your animals? If not do they know who to contact to have your animals taken care of?

I don't think the will is read right away after a death. could be month or even a year.

You know I've never thought of that before. I don't know who would care for them. I guess they'd sell them.

I never thought much about that before. I'll start working as a cop in the next few weeks. I'll have to do a will. I'm sure my wife would keep them. She has been involved in there care since we've had them.

hmm... good idea... I suppose my family would sell everyone (they arn't reptile fans) and I'd want them to keep the money... lol, I owe my mom money.
They know the reptile sites I am on adn I am sure would just post here and ask for best offer for critter and tank/enclosure.
*sigh* there would be so little to sell if i died, how sad!

God for bid it would ever happen, but my rents would deff sell them. They dont know anything about animals..but i think if i were to pass on they would tell the pet store near me, i got there a lot so they know me really well, and they would adopt all my animals. Or atleast most of them. I know my leopard would stay in my house causs my sis loves her. Doesnt know how to take care of it but she could always learn..

My lowly 19 year old self has actually thought about that...and I have NO idea. I don't trust any of my friends with my snakes. But I think I'd actually tell my parents and family WHO to give them to when I choose that person as well as write it in the will. That way they can take care of it immediately.

I have thought about this before, actually. My grandmother knows that if anything happened to me, she would have to give my snakes to Josie of Josie's Reptiles here in Tampa. It's the only solution I could think of, because I don't trust any of my family with my snakes - they don't care enough to research, really.

my business is willed to my son, which includes all my animals, who is only 10 at the moment so friends and family members would help him till he could take it fully on his own, but i know i am not going anywhere anytime soon
