I could never work at a petstore that sold hedgies cause I'd wanna take them all home
But I am glad you will put all your knowledge and experience to use and educate people and handle animals... and get paaaid
to do it too!
Sounds a lot better than a job you don't even like where you get yelled at more often than not
This fall I am going to volunteer at my local pet store to take care of the animals, especially when they have adoption fairs. Hopefully that will lead to a job there (several employees told me they were hired after being volunteers, so fingers crossed!)
So best of luck to you!! Let us know how it goes!
