There's no such thing as a pet you don't eat, 39. I remember my neighbors cat named George, he made the tastiest catlet mignon. It was a hassle getting all his cat hair out, but I'll be damned if it wasn't the best meal I had. If anyone needs recipes for German Shepherds, you now know who to ask!

Get her to kill it when it's time For her to become a man. Worked for me!
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.
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.
