A kitten or a puppy makes an adorable gift, but springing a pet on someone is not fair to the pet or to the recipient. Careful consideration and planning are necessary to ensure that a pet is welcome and the owner is able to provide good care. Unless you are offering the pet to your own child or to someone with whom you discussed the matter, it’s best for all concerned to let people choose their own pets.
