I can't believe that people do not research these exotic animals before they buy and that they truely think they are better off in a cage.... man talk about naive !

Poor things...its like buying a fish and letting it swim in a soap dish or something...poor things...I hope this trend fades fast...maybe if the original advertisement would do a smart ad on how not to get meerkats as a pet would help the situation...????

It breaks my heart to read things like this. People can be so cruel. The RSPCA needs to have more power so it can stop the sale of animals like this. Makes me so mad.

Cute little things but think I'll pass. Fads like these contribute to problems like Florida has now with pythons.

#1 reason why I believe there should be laws disallowing the breeding, owning or importing of exotic animals by anyone other than a highly regulated zoo. Even zoos need to stop importing animals that they do not have the facilities to handle all the animals needs. Sadly, it is stupid people who make stupid decisions like this all for the all mighty dollar and their own selfish interests.
