Well, that defied my expectations. I was expecting the pets to be either thoroughly imaginary, or some sort of horrible goblins in disguise that were perfectly happy to be pals with Jenny unless and until she showed them to someone else - then she'd have broken the rules, and then... they'd... GET HER! BWAAA! Incidentally, her dad being in a wheelchair is a nice touch. It insures that he'll never be able to go down into the basement, which means she'll be able to keep acquiring new animals indefinitely.
