Even though I said I wouldn't get anymore girls until I settled in a
different place I couldn't resist. I went to buy a male parakeet for my
female who was missing her late Blue II. The rats were right by the birds
and I just couldn't help myself.
I was just telling the young boy who helped me that I should make a
decision and leave because someone always comes in and buys a rat for
feeders. And sure enough....I stopped him from buying a rat but he did get
a mouse. He was decent enough to do that when I asked him not to buy a rat.
Still it upset me that anything was bought.
Anyway, my point was that I was on a site somewhere and they were starting
a letter writing campaign to various "reality" shows (like reality is
picking a rat up with your mouth) and I thought if you all were interested
I'd try very hard to find the site again. I really despise that show and
wonder what kind of human beings these people are. Personally I think it's
frightening that anyone could do the things they do.
I also wondered if anyone had heard of the snake food that was being
developed that wasn't moving and I guess didn't use any sort of animal in
it's making. It's one thing in the wild and quite another to drop a living
creature in a tank.
Rosalind, I guess I am actually combining your two posts together in my
one. But I really agree with you and like you said, "enough said"!
Thanks all for letting me vent about my pet store trauma!
