Considering this is a “feature” for many pet sites, this might be a heated topic, but here goes: What are your thoughts on breeding animals for profit/appearances? This topic is used to discuss both real world breeding and breeding in pet games. Looking now to games (such as pet games) which I’ve always enjoyed in my youth, I find it difficult sometimes understanding why breeding is such a heavy “feature.” Which in my mind comes down to this: - Animals/pets are bred to have certain appearances. Animals with unique or rare appearances are generally preferred and “worth more.” - Appearances tend to have more worth than personality or skills. - Pets/animals are regularly bred by choice of the user, not naturally breeding at the choice of the pet/animal (aka forced). - Pure breeds are often “worth more” than mixed breed or “base colours.” - Similarily coloured/painted/alternated pets tend to have more worth. Example “winged cat” is better than “base model orange cat.” How is this not abusing the animal/pets? I feel like I no longer understand nor have respect for this practice. Lets discuss. PS, although I have strong opinions for this, I’m not here for any fights. I genuinely would love to hear opinions (conflicting to mine or not) of others on this topic.
