    I was having a look on the facebook group 'Pets For Sale In South Yorkshire' after seeing it mentioned on another thread and some of the people on there are shocking. Like this conversation for example..

    Josh was asking Emma about getting some ferrets from her friend and it got to-

    Emma T- u only want one?

    Didn't you know that swapping stuff was actually legit? I swapped some chewing gum for Phoebe, it was Extra Spearmint :rolleyes:

    Unfortunately in a lot if not most peoples eyes animals are just property to be bought, sold, swapped or discarded. The smaller the animal the less socially valuable it seems :(

    Argh. Terrible. I try not to look on websites offering pets for sale too much - it really gets me angry. Animals aren't pennies, nor are they possessions. Why don't people understand that? I don't think I'm alone when I say that the animals in this household are all like members of the family - they even get birthday presents if I know when they were born. (ugh... I was in the shops with my mum the other day, and she was asking me when I thought her birthday was. I got her birthday mixed up with the rat's, and couldn't for the life of me remember her proper birthday... what a lovely daughter I am, eh?) Swapping a family member for a hockey table or whatever would be considered barbaric, but swapping a ferret for a coat is fine?!

    It's times like this I don't even want to be on this planet anymore. :nonod:
