looking through the net, i have found lots of resources suitable for my report critique thing.
the 2 best ones i have found are:
which titles
Free creatures :
The role of uselessness in the design of artificial pets
in which it talks about the roles of robotic pets, and stuff about them,
The pursuit ability
of a robot ‘pet’

so yeah… its going well, half a page so far and only taken me… 2 hrs max, maybe 1.5 🙂
