i live in florida, and speaking of not being able to walk into a pet store and buy them...i wish it was like that here
to make a long story short, i was looking into buying a chinchilla from the petstore (before i did all of my reading!!) and they happened to have a glider there, well i asked if i could hold him, and told them i was interested. they simply gave me the glider to hold, and ran the price by me, and asked if i was going to get it. it made me very very mad, knowing that there are people out there that Dont Care where the animals go, if they are in good hands, and they know anything about them. i didnt know anything from how to hold them, to what kind of cage they stay in...or even if they talk like birds. i didnt know a thing, and they were ready to grab the money, shove him in the car...and we would be on our way
well, now i look back and wish i wouldve gotten him, to put him in a better home, a slowley take my time with him... but theres nothing i can do now, cause i went back in there and he is gone...i hope he went to better parents!!!
well heres my question: does anyone feel that if they are in pet stores of any type, do they get sad or depressed like chins do, or are they fine, as long as they have everything they 'Need'?
