(since my keyboard and mouse came as a bundle, I thought I'd "bundle" 2 posts, today)
Yes, I know, I know. The stitching of wands isn't even "LIVE" yet, but I'm a Greedymancer, and I know what I wanna see see next: Mad Science!

You would still have to train, and train, and train some more, to get the 'stats' you want, but once you have them, you could apply them to the 'skin' of any pet in your possession. Just think of all the 'expensive house decorations' wandering around- a chance for "A New Life". That, or we can start "recycling" pets, in return for reagents. 'Stitching' seems the more (virtually) humane thing to do. A Krokomummy that's really a Sea Dragon, a Skeletal Warrior that's really an Ice Colossus: oh, the possibilities are endless!
Just think of the beautiful chaos it would create! Just like stitched wands, you'd never really know what to expect in PvP. "What?!? Their staff is really a Lifeforce Blade, and their Piggle is really a Helephant! ". Looking up your opponent's stats in PvP would likely get a bit more interesting, Muah-ha-ha-ha!
And, just for record's sake, such a cosmetic change wouldn't (or should I say "shouldn't" ), affect the fine database of The Petnome Project, where 'base stats are still base stats'. Hopefully, this spares me the Wrath of KBB and Team TPC, lol. "Gee, Autumn, wish you hadn't delved into PvP, already".
Just know this: Should 'Pet Stitching' ever become a reality- in your head, and around The Spir@l, a single cry will be heard:
