They make it almost impossible look at power companies. Pet stores make it were to get an exotic pet/easy to care for pet you have to pay outrageous costs.

How so?

Fomr my perspective pet stores have been ruining it for people who want to own and care for exotic animals properly by getting the cheapest animals to sell at the lowest prices. This usually leads to poor breeding habbits to pump out cheap affordable animals. Whether the animal be fish, rat, mouse, or even crickets to feed to larger animals.

I think pet stores are so focused on making the price of their animals decrease that they support poor breeding. They also give groups like PETA ammunition because the care of they pets is so sub par it does make pet ownership look cruel.

I have yet to see a pet store sell a pet for more than a responsible breeder. So, I don't see what you mean by outrageous prices (not to say responsible breeders have outrageous prices XD). Maybe it's a difference in where we live or something, but my experience leads me to believe the opposite is true.
