    Is that like house flipping, where you get an old, worn out pet, spruce it up, and sell it for a profit?

    I think I have heard of this and it sounds like a cruel tactic in which one flips their pet in the air.  If pet flipping is the act of throwing a pet into the air in catching it then I am not interested in it as it is not only cruel but dangerous to the life and health of the pet.

    However, if pet flipping is something else, I would be curious to learn what it involves.

    Wow, I'm surprised how few have heard the term. In my own world, "pet flipping" is when people acquire a cheap or free animal, then turn around and sell it for a profit. It's done without any regard to the animal's health or future well-being, and the shelter is full of pets that didn't sell. Yes, sadly, I have a LOT of experience with the far end of it -- rehabilitating traumatized pack animals who have repeatedly bonded with humans and been passed off to the next. Yep, I can certainly rant about that type of pet flipping...but I'll restrain myself right this moment tongue
