Maintaining a borrowed item


Should I borrow an item which requires feeding (or other normally anticipated maintenance), I would be obligated to maintain it throughout the period of the loan.

Should I borrow an item, and the item would deteriorate through normal use, then I would be exempt from liability. Should it deteriorate due to my own deficient care, I would be liable.

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 340:4)

Have a great day,
