On September 11th this year I got sucked into watching a good hour of coverage from the memorial sites. It was all quality programming but after watching it for an hour I just wanted to step away from the tv and out into the sunshine. I just wanted to go somewhere happy. So, I took the kids to Animal Trax on Governor’s Drive.
Right now you’re probably thinking ‘you should go to the Madison location. It’s bigger! It’s better.’ But I’m going to respectfully tell you, no, you shouldn’t. The Madison location is smelly, like, Ed’s Pet World smelly. Ed’s Pet World is a dive of a pet store in Birmingham that always smells, well, smelly. Obviously a pet store isn’t going to smell fresh as the driven snow all the time but the Madison location…good gravy, it’s bed.
The new location on Governors is awesome though!
The owner is SO nice. He took a ton of time with my kids. Showing off all the animals and letting them touch them and feed them. He is incredibly knowledgeable.
This guy was awesome. I wanted him.
And how about this guy!?
“Hey, wise guy, What are you looking at?’
Stella wanted to take the Chinchilla home. I did too. Until I heard how long they live and then I was kind of like…‘ain’t nobody got time for that.’
We’re petless right now. I won’t be talking Billy into a dog anytime soon. Fish are boring. We’ve done the hamster and the gecko. It might be time for a bird. Sadly, Animal Trax doesn’t do birds.
Hmmm…I wonder if Ed’s Pet World sells them?
