a while back my friend went to a pet store with me b/c i wanted to buy a salamander. i left with nothing, she left with a $300 black dsh kitten. it wasn't a special purebred cat, it was just a plain kitten. cute, sure, but all kittens are cute. it wasn't about the breed when i adopted, i just wanted to rescue a needy animal. my cat is very handsome though!! where do these kittens come from and do a lot of people buy them? it was totally an impulse buy for her. i mentioned adoption, but i guess she saw the kitten and wanted it that second, or wanted the one that meowed when she held it b/c of the immediate connection with the cute creature. lol. i don't think it's right for pet stores to sell kittens b/c there are already so many of them in shelters, and since so many people impulse buy them, they probably give them up to shelters when they realize it is too much work. i adopted my cat and he's had a couple health problems, but he's doing fine now. i adopted him for $50. i don't know, maybe pet store cats are better bred or guaranteed healthy. her cat is a real demon!!!
