But there's one near my house and I've been stopping by it nearly every day during my close to four months here. A few months ago, they got these adorable Scottish Fold kittens. 2 of them - feisty and active - in a relatively big cage.
Two months have passed now and no one's bought them. They're now in their own individual cages and have pretty much lost their spark. They hardly seem to move. It kinda breaks my heart every time I walk past them.
I want to buy them, but 1. I can't afford both and 2. I'm leaving Taiwan really soon. Plus, I already have pets back home.
If anyone is looking to buy really adorable kittens - please buy these two. I can chip in a little.
The problem is... I feel like this about almost all cats and dogs in pet stores here (((((

If you buy them, the greedy petshop owner will be laughing (probably most of that high price is pure profit) and he'll just buy another pair. If they don't sell, and they eventually have to be sold at cost-price, then maybe just maybe this store will re-consider keeping cats in the future.
