Klara’s got a cold and she was even running a bit of a fever yesterday so I kept her home today. To cheer her up, I took her to Petco or whatever it’s called. What a great place, folks! We all know how I feel about nature but even I liked it.
There were mice who all live together in their own house! Plus, there was a very expensive animal called “assorted male chinchilla.” And a very cute ferret that made me feel bad for wearing a ferret hat back in high school. (It was back in Ukraine and you can’t get by without a fur hat. It gets really cold, and nobody had cars.)
There were also fish tanks and a large tank with beautiful live corals. They were amazing, I’d never seen such a variety. Some were quite expensive.
We also saw snakes, turtles and frogs but the best thing so far were geckos. I love geckos with an uncommon passion, and here there were some very interesting varieties.
I have no idea why people told me there’d be nothing of interest there. The store is fantastic and a great place for kids.
