    Absolutely unbelievable and completely unethical. Disgusted that anyone could even contemplate this as a concept.

    "A craze in which pets are sold in mystery parcels has caused outrage in China after a number of animals were found dead in a vehicle on Monday.

    The "blind box" craze sees people order a box containing an animal that is then sent to them through the post."

    Omg that’s so awful! I feel so sad for all those poor pets. How can anyone think this is ok?!!! We go on this forum about being careful to select the right pet and breed etc for your lifestyle and then there are things like this :(:(

    Whilst this should shock me, it doesn't.

    And the fact it doesn't shock me makes it even worse - this is the world we live in

    Everything is dispensable :(

    Its a sad reflection on some members of society that they cant see that all life is as precious as theirs is .

    I feel sick just thinking about those poor little ones. How can people be so thoughtless?
