Why? This isn't Neopets. XD

So if you haven't watched the monthly update, towards the end of it, DJ Helsing mentions that if Gaia had a pet system what pets we would want to see.

Personally, I don't want to log on to see some cute desu animal going "OMG FEED ME NOW I'M ABOUT TO DIE WAAAAAAAAAAA" But I'm sure this appeals to some people. But honestly, all I can think about is when I used to wake up and my tamagotchi has pooped everywhere. omg no. lol still buying one if it ever does happen If we had some badass pets, I would be more okay with this idea though.

It would be interesting if we could leave them in our houses too and be interactive with them there. Outside of housing though, I'm not sure how they would different from the pets we already have. I also wouldn't want them replacing the rigpets we have now. I mean, I know people have wanted the animated part with the pet but that would mean we would only get one pet a month and there would only be a few released each time.

Also, I'm not sure what parts of the site would be interested. I mean, I'm sure the GCD would be because, you know, items. But I can't imagine the rally kids being all over this idea. Like, it would need an equip pose I think. I dunno.

Wait a tic... didn't Aquariums fail as a pet system?
So instead of letting our aquatic virtual pets die, we are going to have perishable land animals?

... Joy.

"Hey congrazzles! Your dead [insert pet type] left you a gift before being euthanized! O U O"

I like birds, and maybe an alligator. Most just not all cats and dogs, think about turtles and spiders and junk.

A MANTIS...



There will be 20 cats to choose from, but like 1 of everything else.

This is the only good picture I have of my bird, he died recently so I have nothing else.

I think it would be interesting if we had a pet that we only feed if we want it to evolve -- like go from baby to adult -- or back again. It could even be a gold sink.

They also will make you clean up their various messes. At least I never had to clean the fish tank. Maybe it will be a mini game kind of thing like nintendogs.

It could also be an ostrich with a personality. They could also talk.
We have no idea what Gaia will do with this. XD It could be crazy.

Ps: Not telling you to be quiet. I just thought the picture is funny.

They should be able to follow you around Towns, like the zOMG buddies. Other than that, I don't know.

You're probably right to be skeptical, but I'll go for any excuse for more kitties and bunnies--all day, er'ry day. sweatdrop

Call me crazy but I like this idea. XD I always liked Neopets
and pet sites. Plus, I always take care of my fish tank on here
even though all I get is a random item or gold. That's fun enough
for me.. bring on more, Gaia. XD

I'd post a picture of my old cat but since we moved I can't find
that picture I took of him with my Barbie camera as a kid. It has
so much sentimental value and I've wanted to find it.. I'll be devastated
if we threw it out x__x

So here is a picture of Tubby! One of Angelo's kitties who is
mine too because I say so. 8U

That's like, rather upsetting to think of. Maybe they won't die though? Like, doesn't the neopets one live forever?

And all of this would just be another ploy for the artists to draw cats.

A bug pet would be pretty cool. Maybe a little flying squirrel? Reptiles, Oh! rare extinct animals! surprised

lol Its good for people to be interested in the aquariums though. XD It makes alchemy cheaper.

And yeah. I'm sure it would be a lot like aquariums. I wonder if it would be more about granting gold or us sinking gold into it.

Your cat looks cute~

Ah no nonononnonnononnononno!

They need to perfect and improve all basic and core features before implementing anything new.
