I recently lost two baby rabbits and the frogs I had been raising for over a year. I walked into PETCO and decided I would cheer myself up. I was going to get myself an animal. I weighed my options and decided I had time and money for a hamster. I found a cute hamster and stood around for about 30 minutes waiting for SOMEONE to come ask me if I needed help. ..I started walking around looking for someone. Finally I went to the cashier and said I wanted to buy a hamster. She told some guy to do the paperwork. First he doesn't even care to see my ID. He is really rough taking the hamster out and throws stuff on other hamsters. I was really disturbed that the one hamster had a bad eye problem and possibly what looked like wet tail but mine looked fine. He gave me the paperwork with no instruction and didnt say hi or give me any information. I didn't even get eye contact! But I was too happy to have a new baby to really worry too much about the service. I was just in a rush to get home and set everything up.
I get home and the hamster is in complete shock! He's so scared and injured from what the guy did! The animal started freaking out and screeching. And i tried to calm him down but to no avail.
He died a while later and I was too devastated to take him back to petco so i put him outside.
Good job petco.
Alot of the animals there looked very sick and depressed to begin with. The worst part, there was a dead ferret in the one cage!
So much for cheering up.
I don't even want a fish at this point.
