Matt and I went to St Louis Mills on Saturday to goof off and look for another Cavipes to be a buddy for Judith. The mall cart was gone so I reluctantly trudged into Earthbound knowing it would be bad. It was. Nearly as bad as the last time I was there. The only improvement was that the sponges were mildly damp and there was a tiny puddle of water. I contacted the store via email last time I was there and got no response. I also can’t find there information online to contact them by phone or snail mail. So the bins are still not covered and now that its cold out, the air is dryer than ever. There were dead crabs and body parts all over the tank. There were at least 100 crabs in there. Two very large guys too. While we were talking Matt asked me how to tell if they were PP’s. A woman over heard and said “You sound like you know alot about crabs” I told her I did and we spent the next 10 minutes discussing their care and all the wrong things the pet stores do. We had a crowd around us so I know some others heard. The woman was with her son and mother(?) I think, but she was very interested and asked me so many good questions. We discussed everything from those damn kritter keepers to painted shells! When we left Matt said, “See honey, you made a difference!” I hope I did! Later he told me that I should have brought the monsters home to have a good life with me since they are already so old. I can’t believe he’s encouraging me to buy crabs!! LOL
Oh and if you can tell me how to contact Earthbound Trading Company, that would be awesome!
