Tribbles buff characters, affect items in inventory, and are part of a mini-game. In this game, they are devices with specific game effects and uses, and I think they should remain so.

While being stored, sold, or traded, pets are and should remain an item that takes up space. They are sort of like a commodity usable for trading, selling, etc. Once they are used as a device, though, they effectively become a "costume piece" that can only be "worn" when not in combat. Because they have only cosmetic value, once activated/unlocked, they should be removed from inventory just like a Winter Scarf box.

That being said, as you know, I am for a dedicated storage for Tribbles:
