Do you think it's legal/cruel/OK to have meerkats as pets? We were in Hameln last week and a young couple had 2 pet meerkats which they were carrying round the supermarket in a pet carrier. When she opened the lid and I saw these 2 adorable little critters I fell in love immediately, and of course wanted my own!. Paul says it's cruel to keep them like that because they need to be in their natural habitat. Also, where would you BUY a meerkat! What do others think?
