You know how pets here are officially called "companions" and not "pets"? Well now the city is considering a proposal to ban not only the sale of cats and dogs, but also rats, Guinea pigs, chinchillas and other "pocket pets." ABC 7 alerts us to this disturbing story, and the reason for the proposed ban is that these pocket pets keep showing up in shelters where most people don't even know they're available for adoption. Fight for your right to buy a chinchilla, and to buy local!
