I was at the mall yesterday and saw a line of people waiting to check out a "pocket pet" as the sign described them. This was not a pet store. They were just selling these creatures from a kiosk. I see a lot of abuse coming for these poor things as people buy them for small kids as toys. Or adults who buy them on a whim and just get tired f them like one of those little rc helicopters. I have to say I was disgusted by the whole thing.
