Default Re: Kind of a Rant

These kind of wheels are one of the only problems I have with the exotic pet store near me that sells hedgehogs. They do pretty well as far as pet stores go - they separate males and females, they include igloos, wheels, and have proper heating, and they use Carefresh bedding instead of wooden shavings. The only two points where I disagree with them is they feed hedgehog food (a mix of several hedgehog foods, I'm not exactly sure which ones they include, which makes me wary), and they have those wheels. I tried asking an employee about them once and he said they've used them for years and never had problems, so they won't switch. Ah well, I said, they generally do pretty well. They're also very strict in general with customers handling any of the animals in the store - it's not allowed unless you're seriously interested in buying the animal, and only then. For some animals, like the large parrots they sell, you're actually required to visit the store several times to handle the bird and get to know it before taking it home, and for reptiles/amphibians, you have to buy the set up at the store, or show a picture of the set up & know the water levels to prove that you know how to give the correct habitat. Definitely could be worse! Just wish they'd change the dang wheels!

Some pet stores don't even know, but I think one look at how fragile hedgehog's feet are, I would put two and two together. I just hope that the word gets out about this website to more people. When I got Bruno, his owner had the water bottle so high up I doubt he got nearly enough water, he'll be getting a bowl as soon as I get home today as I'm a student. I guess it's just people being uninformed.
