My children and I absolutely LOVE visiting our local Petco shop. Mostly because it’s one of the few places that we can take our family dog to while shopping and checking out all of the pets in the store. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to keep a closer eye on my kiddos the next time we step inside a Petco store.
That’s because there’s a new report that says one California boy got a little too up close and personal with a pet rat after bringing it home from the store. The rat bit the young Aidan Pankey in 2013 and he ended up dying from ratbite fever! And now the young boy’s family is suing Petco for their son’s death. Here’s why.
