UK Pet Animals Act 1951
"Pets not to be sold to children under twelve years of age.
"If any person sells an animal as a pet to a person whom he has reasonable cause to believe to be under the age of twelve years, the seller shall be guilty of an offence.
"Any person guilty of an offence under any provision of this Act other than the last foregoing section shall be liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 2 on the standard scale or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months or to both such fine and such imprisonment."
I think I may have a good bargaining tool to get some much reduced pet accessories from the person who sold my 7 year old the guinea pig!!!
But, yes, he can keep the guinea pig.
