keep your fish, birds, reptiles, hamsters, guinea pigs, etc. warm in the winter.
Alot of us keep our pet cages and aquariums near windows. It allows our pets to get some sunlight and see the outside world. In the winter try to cover their cages and aquariums at night with a blanket, if you don't already. It will help keep them warm and sheltered from the drafts, and help them sleep better. Remember to keep an eye on the blanket edges, and not let them hang where some of our mischevious pets can get to them! Always keep an eye on your fish and reptile thermometer. You may have to bump it up to keep the temperature constant. Also, try to not put your cages in front of door where the cold breezes can affect your pets.
