Since there is only 3 "buy a pet" action spaces, It is possible for a player to not buy a pet in the first round, putting him at quite a disadvantage. And If he can't buy a pet in round 2 either, he is left saleless for round 3.

Well, if you missed out on a pet in the first round, make sure you get one on the second round by allocating enough imps to make sure you go early enough in the turn order!

(Chances are everybody else won't want a second pet already -- somebody won't have enough cages I bet)

This was actually brought up in playtesting. However.....
The player who doesn't get a pet can clean the cage.
That player normally purchases a 2nd cage.
A second cage is actually more important than a pet early on.
We had 3 games in a row during playtesting where the player who didnt get a pet won the game.

So, it isnt an issue.

Get a 2nd cage. Clean your cage.
