I like shopping carts as well. Some large sites offer different kinds of things for sale, Amazon.com for instance.
You can gather all the things you want in your cart even if they are from different companies and pay once.
Of course if you sell critters, many are unique and the customer might want to email you with questions prior to purchase, so providing an easy way to email is a plus even if you do have a cart system.
But if they see the perfect critter, putting it in the cart and paying for it right then (especially if you offer a shipping cost at time of purchase, or the cost is added onto the critter so you can offer free shipping) is good for you and makes your customer feel as if they have completed the purchase with no loose ends.
