If I remember correctly my first pet was a rock that I thought was a turtle. I remember freaking out when my parents found it and tossed it out my second story rooms window. I was not a bright child.

81, there's no shame in having a pet rock :-). Kids these days are so demanding and take for granted the amount of entertainment we didn't grow up with. You had a pet rock until your parents murdered it. How rude (JK)!

I dunno. I think it would be better to just let her keep the lobster if it makes her happy. It seems exceedingly mean to not only take away a pet from a young child, but also eat it. I can't imagine how horrified and upset I'd feel if I had, say, a new pet rabbit or duck and my dad then cooked it for dinner. And I'm an adult. I can't imagine how upsetting that would be for a child.

Yeah it's pretty awful when your fuckhead of a father gets you a pet rabbit for your birthday after not remembering it for 3 years, then making the bunny into a soup for him and his buddies, and giving his child the rabbit skin laughing just so he can spite your mother because she did something to upset him. My point is don't traumatize the kid. I say to OP just let the kid have the pet and eat something else and make her take care of it properly. It will teach her responsibility and it won't make you look like a huge asshole.

It is adorable, true. But aren't lobsters expensive to eat and to keep as pets? Also, it's going to be hard to have lobster in the future now isn't it!

Which now means if you genuinely intend you keep it, you'll need to find out what breed of lobster it is and buy a large aquarium and suit it to the lobster. Also do you have any idea how long they live for or how big they get? Unless you're just biding your time until the novelty wears off and she forgets about it, that's possibly the worst decision you could have made. You could've just told her that it was for eating and cooked it anyway. Kids need things explained to them, not giving them everything just because they assume it is so. Besides, isn't this a plot from the Simpsons? I'm going to guess it's fake.

So how will you keep a salt water animal alive in a kiddie pool? This sounds like a nice plan but for the fact you should do planning into a pet. Sounds like the lobster will die. You will not be able to eat it. And the daughter will loss the "pet" Try explaining to the kid it was dinner and it is cruel to make it live without the conditions. Maybe get a real pet with planing and not the slow death of a lobster.

It depends on if OP got a salt or fresh water lobster, also there are lobsters that live near estuarys, so they can live in salt or fresh water. And since lobsters are bottom feeders they can pretty much eat anything.

"Hey, honey, Mr. Shelley is dirty. Let's give him a bath. No no, the bath tub is far too big. He'll fit much better in this pot of boiling water on the stove."

crabs and lobsters are usually stunned before boiling. i think you freeze them and that is supposed to be the most humane way. still not very humane though.

they have an exoskeleton. i dont think they have a spinal chord. plus that would hurt like a bitch and be worse than throwing them on boiling water.
