“Get yourself a pet that lets you stroke it”


Is there any issue in the sentence above in terms of grammar?

Comments  

The given sentence is grammatical, but unusual. The word "stroke" is usually not used with the word "pet." And the sentence is sort of hitting you over the head with the obvious, like saying: "Get yourself a pet that's an animal." or "Get yourself a pet that isn't dangerous." Most pets - other than fish - will let you stroke them. So there's no need for a sentence like this.

Okay I was meant to say a parrot instead of a pet. I don’t think it’s a common sight for a parrot to let you stroke it? Atleast for me it isn’t.


Does it still make sense or no?
