About

Hi. My Name is Nicole

I’m the creator of WeeWhiskers.com. Wee Whiskers is a one stop shop for caring for, understanding, and providing useful information for owning small animals.

I grew up in an “animal house.” As far back as I can remember, we had cats, dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs and rabbits. I think back now and realize how lucky I was to be surrounded by the unconditional love of animals. Not to mention the responsibility of caring for and maintaining their environment.

So six years ago when my daughter was born, I realized it was time to pass on the family tradition. We welcomed a bouncing baby girl and not long after, Thelma and Louise.

Three years later, our son came hurtling into the world and there hasn’t be a quiet moment since. Unfortunately Thelma and Louise are no longer with us but we now have Daisy the hamster, I’m involved with the local guinea pig rescue, and my daughter is eyeing rabbits now.

Why This Site Exists

After many years of owning and fostering small animals, I believe I have some knowledge to share. This is my hobby and passion and I hope it shows!

Also, owning small animals should be a source of joy in your life. I’m hoping that by good information, more people are inspired to adopt animals in need without fear (but realistic expectations).
