I finished my child's week quest today on one of my characters. I haven't done this since WotLK. I just bought the other pets so I'm doing this for the two non-tradeable ones. Anyway, you know, I had a rather shocking thought: we have got to be the worst foster parents ever. I mean, we're cruel.
We see this poor orphan, right? We take him or her out and check out all these cool places. We go from one cool place to another. By the end, the poor little guy is like "you're so AWESOME!" and then he decides to stay with us and... we use him in pet battles. Force him to level up via killing cute, fuzzy, woodland critters. We house the poor guy with all the other pets. Can you imagine that poor oracle orphan? "Wow! What a huge tree!" and then we make him sleep with the fungal abomination. =X
I feel guilty.
