You can see that I have 1 copy of Mini Maw, that it is fully Ascended, that it is upgradeable (to level 20), but that it is still level 15:
Confirmation that I could feed my Mini Maw to level 20:
Here are my Daily Deals. The second one offers me a copy of Mini Maw for 50 Gems:

What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened:
I expected the Daily Deals to offer me only Pets that I needed copies of. Instead, on many occasions, I’ve been offered Pets that I have sufficient copies of to max, only I haven’t yet ascended and leveled them to level 20.
How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
This has been happening every 2-3 days since the Daily Deals costing Gems were introduced.
Initially, I thought it might be because I hadn’t ascended some of my pets, so I ascended all my pets as far as they could go. It continued to happen. I did get (and did purchase) some offers for pets that I did need more copies of. But it would be fair to say that the proportions of which pets I’m offered matches the number of pets I don’t have at level 20 but that getting to level 20 would nett me a kingdom star (I think it’s 1:2).
Why should this be fixed?
In my individual case, I haven’t leveled these pets because I’m collecting data on kindgom bonuses at different pet multipliers.
However, it is entirely conceivable (especially for a player earlier in the game) to have enough copies of a pet but not enough pet food to get it to level 20. It’s also quite conceivable to not notice that you have enough copies to max a pet.
It seems unfair to indirectly penalise a player in that position. Even worse if they assume the do need more copies, and spend Gems on the offer!!!
