    Obviously someone must work at petsmart how else would they stay
    open. Yeah i think someone must work there for that to happen.
    that's generally how that works. I however do not work at

    Do you eat meat?? What about caring about that life or is life
    just important when its just more politically correct?? Or when
    criticizing what others do?? Do the edible critters not have
    feelings?? You people are so full of double standards. Point
    being whining on a chat board doesn't change a damn thing. Ya
    aren't gonna stop big Business. Period. And ya might want to
    start with yourself and your own consuption of animals/animal
    products (own any leather?) before critiquing others.
