Talking Oopsie.

Someone came in tonight to visit their dog and made the mistake of mentioning they had a chinchilla and had gotten it from a pet store. I had to. I just had to. I asked what she was feeding it: "Some sort of pellet with sunflower seeds and banana mixed in."

I printed her the 26 page article I've been working on, as well as a source literally down the street for her to get Mazuri. She probably regretted mentioning it when I was done.

I'm hopeless!

Ha ha Jade. I would SO have done that!!! (Would've prolly had to contact you for the 26 page care sheet!!!)
That does just show though how pet stores are. I believe that all animal food should be rated somehow on a scale or what not on how good it is... And ALL petstores should require you to read up on the animal before you purchase it and then provide a test or something to take before you get the animal... You know? Yes- this would take a long time but how long does it take to adopt a child?

You're great...

Who among us wouldn't?? I've been admonished many times by my husband for getting on my animal "soap box". He has finally stopped trying!

Give it to 'em, Jade!
