Baby Buzz Faces Dangers

by _snow_child_

THE RAINBOW POOL - It's true, a baby pet is on every neopians wish list. But is there a threat to the baby buzz? Well every one knows that birds naturally prey on worms, and there's no denying it, baby buzzes look like worms. And with a pteri on the loose, a baby buzz's life could be in danger. We all know what neopets have lived in harmony with each other, with the exception of the Lupe and the Chia, but could a Pteri really resist the temptation of a juicy, succulent Buzz Grub?

Well, I think the answer is no. Even though they could be kept at bay with a nice Gaa Gaa Grub, could a Sour Grub really replace the natural urge to catch, kill, and eat a defenseless Grub-like baby Buzz? Well, I talked to a number of Buzzs and Pteris to get their thoughts on the whole ordeal.

Tom the Pteri said, "Even though we have our natural instincts like any other pet, we still have our self- control!"

While Rhea the Buzz said, "Personally, I think painting a buzz baby with a Pteri in the household is a preposterous idea! Who would do such a thing?! Putting a baby in danger like that!"

And when we spoke to a friendly couple, things really got ugly. Joe, a buzz, and Becca, a Pteri, have been friends for three months now, and when I asked them their opinions on the matter, this is what they said:

"Well, maybe in some relationships there is no trust, but in a relationship like ours, well to say the least, I'd let a baby Buzz wriggle through here any time and I wouldn't think twice about his or her safety, because I know Becca would never eat a baby pet!" said Joe.

Then we asked Becca. She replied, "Who would paint a buzz baby anyway? They're ugly as it is… but not you dear, erm, you're quite handsome. Besides, it's what's on the inside that counts, right?"

Let's close the curtain on that ugly little scene.

We then got the scoop from a species who is in the same position as a baby Buzz, we asked a Chia his opinion.

"What we should ask ourselves is not Would the Buzz be too tempting, but Would the Pteri even think twice about eating another pet in the first place? The whole problem between Lupes and Chias is not the fact that Chias are tempting, we are not. It's those no-good, scandalous, dirty rotten Lupes! They thought we looked appetizing so one day a Lupe ate one of our kind and poof! Instant snack! Now they've made lupe treats shaped like us! It's an outrage!"

After I reminded Mr. Chen about the whole reason I asked his opinion, I resumed quoting him: "It really depends on the Pteri. Even I've met one or two Lupes who haven't looked at me and licked their chops. It depends, like I said, on the Pteri. While some Pteris would jump at the chance for some fresh Grub-like baby Buzz, others would not eat one if it were the only thing in Neopia to eat."

So with the information I collected, I ask neopia one question: "Would you trust a Pteri with a Grub-like pet?"
