My 16th month old loves pets of all kinds. We had been out shopping, we stepped into the nearby Petco to just have a look around. She was amazed by all the pets and I was amazed by all the prices. They had quiet a few parrots on sale, and the basic parrot, which we see often in India cost 479$. My FIL who was visiting us from India was shocked, since he has about 30 love birds, a pair of parrots at home. The loves birds each cost $20. They has quiet a few reptiles as well, the basic "balli" cost $10. The cheapest was the mouse $2.
So my FIL was saying, the next time i come here I should pack all my birds too.
Having a pet here is a costly affair.

Yes, and not just pets; I found whole lot of things that are either cheap or eeven freely available in India, is much costlier in such developed countries. And that mainly includes medical care too.
On a light note, eli and balli we can easily get them for free from Meenambakkam chennai airport

Hey AF,

Petco is a chain and may be thats y its expensive, I have checked out some smaller places to shop for Pets in South Cal and have found the prizes reasonable...may be you should checkout smaller privately owned stores.

Moreover when you go to these stores the service is good!

so did you get ur kid a pet?
