I recently asked What signs should I look for in my children to know they are ready for a pet with the hope that it would be a somewhat canonical question for a question I think we are going to see regularly.

I considered creating a are this would describe the content, but it is pushing into the meta tag area (or at least too broad of a tag) as it could almost be applied to most any question on the site.

  • I am not sure if I should down or upvote this answer. Whatever, I agree that pet-care would be too meta for the site.
