I went to Pet Valu today to talk to them about my new "gift", and am still very stressed out about it. I bought him more food but my heart is just not into keeping him. My stomach's been in knots since I got him, and i'm having a hard time eating anything. I've asked Pet Valu if they'd take him back, but the person I spoke to on he phone needs to speak to the owner I guess then get back to me. I called about 1/2 hr ago, so i'll give it a bit then call back if I don't hear from him.
If they don't take him back, I don't know what i'll do. I've been reading up about Chamelons and they're not really a "child friendly" pet and there's always a risk of salmonella. With Mya's immune system not being what it should be, I just don't feel like it's worth the risk. Even if it is a low risk... :(
I know Ed's heart was in the right place when he bought him for me, and I do love him for it, but when I said it was sooo cute & I wanted it, well for me it was like saying this...
Oh he's sooo cute! I want him! (not really!)
So, now i'm having to do a LOT of care & upkeep when my plate was already filled to brim as it was.
Anyways... i'm off for now. Haven't done anything today but stress out and burn food. :( I'll update once I find out what's going on.
Hope everyone is enjoying their day! :)
Update: The pet store will NOT take him back... they can't resell anything that's been used and it's too stressful for the pet. :( Sooo... I guess I try Kijiji or resign myself to caring for a Chameleon for the next 5 years or so...
