    No, I don't think pets make good presents, in much the same way as I wouldn't like to be given a pet, I would want to choose my own.

    You are brill Magik thats what I was waiting to hear, I think because of the price of some pets ie, bulldogs, pedigree cats ect, some people need to justifie spending that sort of money on a pet and aslong as a breeder does the same checks as they do all year round then why not???

    It would have to have been requested and would have to be known about... i do agree with Magik when he says not as a surprise as you are not fully prepared for the responsibility.

    If you know about it you make yourself prepared for it....

    Personally though, i wouldnt buy a pet as an xmas present
