there should be a Pet Rental Company!
pets are not for everyone
not everyone is ready for the long term commitment
lots of pets lose their appeal early on
hermit crabs... snakes... turtles... goldfish
not everyone is entertained for the long haul
so... if there were a Pet Rental Company...
instead of buying that fish tank and then storing that fish tank after the last fish gets flushed
that fish tank is simply rented
the fish tank is rented along with the fish
the company delivers it and sets it up
then once the children (or short attention span adults) have lost interest
well.. the fish tank is picked up and a bill is paid
I just fed and watered the hermit crabs
not sure when the last time the hermit crabs had any small child interaction
