Pet shop given the okay by Environmental Health officials
Officials have given a Prestwick pet shop the okay to remain open despite a 5,500-signature petition criticising the living standards of kittens kept at the store.

'Save Kittens from Pets Aquarium' had gained almost 5,500 signatures after Prestwick girl Sophie McNicol posed an upsetting Facebook status about the living standards she felt the kittens were subjected to.

She described how three kittens were stuck in a small dirty cage. They were cold, cramped and frightened.

This appeal saw Environmental Health to step up and visit the public pet area of the premise on Monday, April 25 but they have since stated that the shop conditions meet licence requirements.
A statement in response to last week’s report on kittens being sold in Pets’ Aquarium Prestwick has been released by them:

"An inspection of the pet shop and pet area has been carried out by the Environmental Health Department and a South Ayrshire Council Vet.

"The bird cages and the cages where the kittens were kept were included in the inspection.

"I can confirm by report issued to me following their visit that Pets’ Aquarium can continue to trade in all aspects of pets, birds, fish and reptiles as report states conditions meet all licence conditions and no restrictions or recommendations have been issued and no further action to be taken by South Ayrshire Council."
