Pet Store Kitten

I went to the mall today, and when I walked inside the petstore, I seen a little 'black' kitten being bought. First things first, that somewhat scared me because of Halloween is a month away! Anyway, I walked passed them to go see the puppies. (pet stores have never really angered me so much til today) and seen a WHOLE litter of Jack Russel Terriers! That was a bit overboard to me. Then I seen 2 Bulldog/Pug mixes. One looked exactly like a pug, and the other exactly like a Bulldog. I KNEW they were both from the same litter, but they had those two separated - and the Jack Russels in the same cage. Why couldn't they been in the same cage??
I watched as someone was interested in a Jack Russel Terrier puppy then I noticed the huge cage the kitten was from. And alas, two more BLACK kittens! One was sleeping and it wouldn't wake up for me. The other was fluffy and drinking water. It drank soo slowly, looked soo weak. Then it looked up at me and let water drip out of its mouth.. )))) Then kitty went over and started eating. Little kids came over in awe over the cute kittens, but couldn't tell how sad they actually were!

I left with my stressed/sad eyes and was quiet as we left. I couldn't stop thinking of how sad those kittens were. My fear is up because of black cats and halloween... They even only cost $20 each.
As we left my fiance said we could go get the kittens if I wanted to - so permission granted.
HOWEVER, I'm having very mixed feelings here. I want to save those kitties and make sure they are safe through Halloween and then try and get them homes. BUT I do not want to support a puppy-store.. Tell me what do I do?! :cry: I also have to make an appointment for my rescued senior kitty, Clyde, to see if he has a skin disorder - I REALLY wish that vet called me back and gave me a job!

It is so sad, Aonir - I know what you are going through. I just wanted to tell you that I admire you for getting involved and caring so much. You are a special person and you are a great example to follow :)
But then if no-one will buy the animals at the petstores what is going to happen to them? I am assuming it will take a long time till all of this is settled. If the stores will be finally forced to stop selling pets then there should be a direct connection between them and no-kill shelters so the animalas can go there..and hopefully find new homes.
I know that changes take a lot of time. I just felt it was necessary to draw the attention towards the animals. Your explanation shows me though that there will be a direct connection and the animals won't be at risk. That is all that matters to me.
