Big box store...
So several years ago my Dad adopted a very small kitten from here. It had been put in a cage with some older cats that were beating on it and preventing it from eating enough food. Being the poor animal sap that he is, he decided to adopt her. He said she was about 4-5 weeks tops when he got her. She had supposedly been tested and was ready to go. What he didn't anticipate was undiagnosed illness. When he took her to her forever vet she was diagnosed positive for feline leukemia. Furious he contacted the PetSmart and the rescue they worked with. As luck would have it, they wouldn't even respond. It was rough as Dad had another older kitty that probably shouldn't have been exposed to this, but there wasn't much to do at this point but to test those waters. She lived for nearly three years before the disease got the best of her. Poor Sasha got very ill, had to be hand fed, and given IV fluids and drugs before she was simply too weak to care for herself. At that point Dad thought it best to give kitty some relief. The story here is that PetSmart while trying to make a minor difference in the community didn't stand very tall with their partners on this one. They simply vanished into the red tape. Stores like this often do and it's why I try very hard not to support them. For those that read this review. When adopting a kitten do some homework, quarantine your new animals from your old ones and by all means pay a few bucks to a trusted vet to do some basic health tests and checks to make sure your match is healthy for your family. Don't rely on what someone tells you. While sick animals need homes too, you shouldn't risk the health of your other animals for the one.
I got my kitty cat a new name tag here. Its pretty nice for a Petsmart. Clean at the time.
