Ok i am an animal lover since i have been a little girl. I always told myself that i will either work with animals or children. I work with children instead.
But anyway i have always wanted a hamster or gerbils. My husband told me i could get gerbils so i went to the pet shope and i went to petco. the petshope didn't have a better slection of them so i went to petco. I got Princess and daisy. Well about 4 days later Princess was acting funny and i just assumed it was from stress and she would get over it. one morning i walked in and i found princess dead, i took her back and got my money back and petco told me it was probably and Respitory viruse they missed. SO i went home cleaned the cage and put daisy back in. i got a new one named Lila. NOw about 4 days after i got Lila daisy started acting funny. SO i called petco they told me bring her in and they will take her to the vet and have the bill since she was at the 15day mark. I did, and i waited for the call. they called and told me she had internal bleeding and and that there was blunt force like someone squeesed her or threw her, and then told me that they think that it is what happened to pricness. and i can't buy anymore geribls from them.
Now i am afraid some sort of animal services is going to come after me even when i didn't do anything to daisy or princess. I don't even know if they told me a lie or confused me with someone else's pet.
and to top it off they also sold me a gerbil play thing and not all the parts are in it. I feel horrible on what happend to daisy and princess and now i am afraid when i go pick up the cage they are going to have someone there and arrest me in front of my sons.
