NeoPetrology - Part Two: What Does Your Pet Say About You?
After my last article, "NeoPetrology"
was published in The Neopian Times, I received a flood of Neomails from people
asking me to provide NeoPetrology readings for their pets. Because of the amount
of pets on NeoPets, and the fact that I didn't want to write an article longer
than a Meerca tail, I only analysed a select few of the pets. But because of
popular demand, and out of fairness to all the pets and their owners out there,
I have decided to do two follow-up articles (including this one) where I will
analyse what the rest of the pets say about the owners who choose them. Through
NeoPetrology you can determine, sometimes with uncanny accuracy, a great deal
about yourself, just by looking at the pets you own.*
The pet that everyone in Neopia seems to be talking about lately is the highly
elusive Krawk. With the cost of Krawk PetPets skyrocketing, only a select few
of the richest Neopians can own one of these dragon-like pets. Mischievous,
fun loving, and probably spoiled-rotten by their owners (who wouldn't spoil
a pet so expensive to get?), Krawks are the latest status symbol in Neopia.
A Krawk owner is likely to be someone who is very ambitious and a high-achiever
on NeoPets, and in real life. Aside from mountains of NP, they probably have
an impressive trophy cabinet, and a massive Neopian shop. Krawk owners are the
entrepreneurs of Neopia, and the people most "average" Neopians strive to be
like. Because when you come right down to it, who wouldn't like millions of
NP, a huge shop, tons of items and pets with more hit points than you can count?
Are you one of the few people who owns a Moehog? Although they may not be
a popular pet, I'm sure a few of us remember when you had to reserve a Moehog
before they were released as pets. They had a brief spurt of popularity then,
but once they were offered to everyone like the other pets; cuter, cooler pets
soon overwhelmed them. But there are still those of us out there who see the
Moehog's bashful toothy grin and teardrop tusk and decide it's the pet for us.
People who own Moehogs are the type to see beauty where someone else sees silliness
or goofiness. Moehog owners are probably nonconformists, and always follow their
hearts, no matter what the majority thinks.
The only pet more scorned than the Moehog, is the poor skinny-legged Lenny.
Lenny owners are the rarest of all in Neopia, so it stands to reason that there
must be something about Lenny owners that differs from other NeoPet owners.
Lennys are very intelligent NeoPets, but they are quite frail looking, and not
as cute and cuddly as other NeoPets. Lenny owners are likely to value intelligence
over all other qualities, and probably treat their pets with the utmost respect
There are three pets in Neopia that I think of as "The Cuddly Cuties," these
are the Cybunny, Kacheek and Poogle. One look at any of these three pets and
you just wish they were real so that you could grab them in your arms and squeeze
them. Cybunnies and Poogles are limited edition pets, so their owners probably
lavish copious amounts of love and attention on their pets. Although Kacheeks
are not limited edition pets, the fact that they are the second most popular
pet in Neopia goes to show just how well loved they are. "Cuddly Cutie" owners
are probably very loving and affectionate people, who buy their pets all the
toys they could need.
Does a little Jubjub make it's home with you? Jubjubs are notoriously shy,
quiet little creatures, and their owners probably have similar personality traits.
People who own Jubjubs probably enjoy keeping to themselves for the most part,
and like to spend time daydreaming. In spite of being very introverted, Jubjub
owners are probably very sweet and giving and like to help out the few NeoFriends
that they have.
The Zafara is one of the oddest creatures in Neopia. With the feet of a hare,
the tail of a dragon, the ears of a dog, and the body of a rabbit, the Zafara
is like no other NeoPet. Zafaras are well known for being the lucky pets of
Neopia, and Zafara owners are probably fond of taking chances, and living life
to the fullest. With a Zafara by your side, you're not likely to be a person
who worries about much.
Is your favourite pet a Usul? Usuls are some of the friendliest, most outgoing
NeoPets in Neopia. Although tiny in stature, they are big in character and demand
an owner who is just as talkative and full of energy. If you own a Usul, you're
likely to be the life of the party, someone who makes friends with everyone
and is always happy to share and have a good time.
Did you manage to get your hands on a fierce Jetsam? With their sharp teeth,
and glaring eyes, Jetsams are certainly not for everyone. Although very independent
pets, Jetsams become completely devoted to an owner who treats them well. People
who own Jetsams are not likely to have a large group of friends, but are probably
very devoted to the few that they have. A Jetsam owner is probably someone who
likes a challenge, and doesn't think friendship should come cheap.
Have you adopted one of the slave pets from the Grundo Space Station? Grundos
were enslaved by Dr. Sloth and treated very badly. Someone who adopts a Grundo
has a very kind and giving heart, and is not afraid to sacrifice in order to
help someone else. Although Grundos may slobber and make funny noises, they
can be wonderful pets to the person who is kind enough to welcome them into
Are you the proud owner of a chubby Bruce? These pets have been much improved
since they were moustached and wore tuxedoes, and have become one of Neopia's
most fun-loving pets. As all Bruce owners know, Bruces love getting up in front
of a crowd and dancing the night away. Someone who owns a Bruce is probably
a very open-minded and uninhibited person, who's not afraid to go out and have
fun. They probably love nothing more than getting out and doing whatever they
love the most, regardless of what others think.
Each NeoPet is special in its own different way, and so are the people who
own them. It's this diversity of pets along with their owners that makes Neopia
the fun and cool place that it is for everyone. Please look for my next and
final article on NeoPetrology for readings on the remaining NeoPets.
