They do - or...2 of them, at least. Under a "BOGO" sale as well. And its horrible! They look as though they have mites even worse than Graham does. Definitely brought it in on her. I feel horrible for them though. They don't look so happy.
On top of that, they're keeping guinea pigs in a 1x1 foot tank. Fully grown. The water bottle looks too low to floor to reach! I'm appalled by their rodent care. They do to pretty good with reptiles, though, so I'll credit them for that. And the chinchillas had a big ferret cage. But...the smaller pets were doing horrible. I'm ready to place a complaint, I feel so bad for them all! I'm glad I got Graham out of there though. Not a pretty fate if she'd stayed there.

This is a pointless little rant but that store is worse than petsmarts / petcos. And that's saying something.

I've found that little pet stores are just as bad as the big ones, sometimes even worse. Maybe because they're under less scrutiny? I bought a parrot from a little pet store once. It was good at the time; they had a cockatoo who was allowed to fly free range around the shop, the guinea pigs were in nice big tanks, and they even were hand-raising baby cockatiels. But within a year, the place changed management and turned to garbage. That poor cockatoo was locked up in a tiny little cage where he could hardly stretch, and don't even get me started on the koi they had out back. It was a graveyard. I don't think I've ever been to a good pet store, but Petsmart and Petco are not the worst I've seen by far.

Oh pet shops make me so sad, the way they keep small animals. There's one near me that keeps hamsters in teeny tiny glass cases, really overcrowded.

On a related note, I once saw an online ad selling mice that advised a diet of "leftovers and occasionally some hamster food". In the pictures I could see that their food bowl had rainbow sprinkles in it (the kind you get on ice cream) Shocked That's the worst mouse care I've ever seen.

They're always very sad. Leftovers and occasionally some hamster food? Poor mice. I mean, I bet the mice themselves don't mind it, but it's so bad for their health. Poor babies.
