She loves all creatures

Yesterday after school, Stephanie captured quite a number of snails before we clambered into the car.

We watched them for a while, and then she gathered them up into a plastic container for the journey home.

I tried to convince her to put them back in the grass, that they wanted to be free, but she firmly replied:

They're tired! They don't want to be free! They want to sleep in their own box!

(As I tried to suppress my smile, she added...)

Can I keep them in my room every night and every day?
Because I don't have a pet and I need pets!

(We did later set them free. She ultimately acknowledged that they failed to appreciate her hospitality and kept trying to escape.)
