Therapist Needed After Visit To Local Pet Shop (Part Two)
Posted in the Port Angeles Forum

The mistake I made was telling her she was full of it when she said it would cost her $300.00 for 'quarantine' if she took the little hen back- I'm not stupid. Puh-lease. Don't try to feed me the same B.S. I hear you tell others because you're creating false
impressions and not all of us are going to fall for it.
The police told me I was banned from 'Taboo' for the rest of the day- that being saturday, the bird would have to sit until tuesday.
I waited all weekend, like a little kid, I had my heart set on this little 'keet who is a sibling to the two I had already purchased.
My husband had planned to go pick up the bird for me but I foolishly thought that, being adults, the incident was behind us and as long as I kept my mouth shut why wouldn't she sell me the bird?
She started the minute she saw me:'Are we in a better mood today?'
Me:'I just came to buy the bird.' She didn't think she wanted to sell it to me. I embarrassed her in front of people.
Well, quit telling everybody the government 'oversees' your store- you are obligated by law to allow inspection of your exotics, it's
not like you report to them that you can't be bothered to teach your employees how to catch birds without scaring them to death and pulling out their feathers.
I called the veterinarian's office- she said this particular vet
office 'ran' her store- and was told no, they did see animals for 'Taboo' from time to time but weren't involved in the operations of the shop.'Taboo' owner's answer to that? I spoke
with the wrong people, they didn't know about it.
She called me a liar. She said she didn't know that I was providing a good home for the birds. I gave her my address and told her to come over any time. And worst of all- purely out of spiteful & vindictive selfishness- she wouldn't let a bird in her store get a knowledgeable and considerate owner (me) who considers
the trust of an animal a privilege. I love watching animals become
confident, happy, healthy individuals who have no fear. There's great satisfaction in it.
I don't know why she didn't just ban me from the store completely.
Why tell the police I can come in but refuse to sell me the bird when I do show up- unless there is some kind of power she gets from having something someone else wants or something.
Anyway, I went home with no birdie- my husband said he knew that
would happen, and I felt really sad because I was so excited to
bring home the bird and instead I was immediately picked at by a
person apparently incapable of adult behavior, truthfulness, and
any sort of consideration for the many 'inmates' she exploits
on a daily basis.
It's just really sad. I feel so disappointed- poor birdie.
At 'Taboo' the patient is running the asylum.
What kind of 'small' is a person who robs a small bird of a great life just because her nose is out-of-joint?
'Taboo', indeed. Well, the air purifier for my bird-room came yesterday. I guess I'll go set it up.
Anybody willing to go buy the bird for me? [email protected]
