Grrrrrrr PaH again!

Post by cheryl'n'bruce'flo on Sat Nov 23, 2013 6:55 pm

So I dropped into one of the local PaH stores to see if they had any large boxes of G.P. fibafirst. They did not.

But I also cast an eye over their buns, who had nothing at all to eat.

So I asked the girl on the desk, who was so busy on her tablet she did not look at me initially. She said they were going to feed them in a minute, when I countered that they required hay now she called over the manager. Manager says that they will be fed in a minute but they have just had their fruit and they can't be given too much to eat or they will get bloat. I countered that the problem was that they have hay that they need unlimited amounts of hay and as there was none left they had clearly been without for a while. The till girl chips in we have to measure it out and if we feed them too much then they won't have enough to last until morning. So you are obviously not giving them enough I say. Manager says we are going to feed them shortly but thanks for your concern (that's me dismissed).

Just so pisses me off - all they had to say was thanks for pointing it out we'll remedy it.

I think that deserves an email to head office or a post on their Facebook page Cheryl.

Not good enough.

This is awful No

Like has already been said, these people should be setting an example to the public and any prospective/current bunny owners. Those poor rabbits...

I definitely think an email is needed here!

Unfortunately I don't think it is worth an email this time.

If I were to complain what the head office would read was customer complains rabbits have no food and manager says she will feed them. The rest will be view as incidentals.

I feel you have to pick your battles with PaH head office. Whilst I know the information given was not good I am sure they will not see it that way.

It sounds to me like they have a budget for food and that the rabbits are being rationed.  When hay is such a cheap foodstuff, it should be unlimited.  I do think it is worth doing something about.  

They thought they were dealing with someone who knew little about rabbits so they could bull**** you, but unfortunately that is not the case.

Bullpoop do they. The hu-parents did the same once in our local P&H and got exactly the opposite attitude - the lady couldn't get to the shelf quick enough to get a bag of hay, rip it open and throw handfuls in for the buns. Yes, they should have had some in the first place, but we do find our local P&H are very receptive and the staff seem to genuinely care more about the welfare of the animals than many of the other stores we hear about.

Humum says she would be forced to write a semi-sarcastic letter to the store manager. She'd ask exactly what ration of hay they allocate to each bun, whether they keep track of each bun sold so they can reduce the ration accordingly at the next feed, how much the increase the ration by for the buns who have been there longer and so are bigger. And finally how they ensure the buns only eat their own ration Twisted Evil
