Make Your Neopet Happy!
We all want happy pets, right? I'm pretty sure we do. Having happy pets is fun.
But what is the easiest, fastest way to make your pet happy? I'm sure we'd all
like to know that. This is the perfect guide for people that are new to Neopets
and don't know how to have a happy pet.
The first thing you need to do to make your pet happy is to feed it! Nobody
wants to be starving, and if you don't want to starve, you shouldn't let your
pet starve either! If you think about it, that's kind of mean anyway. Even though
your pet won't die if you don't feed it, it will get sad or even mad if it is
hungry all the time. So how much should you spend on food? Not too much. Then
what kind of food is cheap? I suggest buying omelettes. They are pretty cheap
compared to other foods, and they provide 3 meals for your pets. How great is
that?! But omelettes are actually a second resort. If you have very little neopoints
(this includes the neopoints in your shop till, bank account, and the ones you
have on hand) you can go to the Soup Kitchen! The Soup Kitchen is run by the
kind Soup Faerie, who gives free soup to poor pets. If you go there, you can
feed your pets until they are bloated, all free! But be warned. If you have
too many neopoints, you will not be allowed to go to the Soup Kitchen. It is
only for people with fewer neopoints. Anyway, if you do choose to feed your
pet omelettes, the first thing you need to do is buy the omelette(s). There
are several kinds of omelettes, and you must find one your pet likes to eat.
Then you go to My Items and click on the omelette. Click the arrow on the drop-down
list and select the pet you want to feed.
So your pets are full, and slightly happier. Now what do you do? Play with
them, of course! If they are bored, they will not be happy. Pretty simple concept.
But which toy should you buy, and what kind? Some of them cost quite a lot.
Well, I suggest the Headless Von Roo Plushie. They cost about 5 neopoints! How's
that for convenient? Once you have the toy, go to My Items and click on the
one you want. Then click the arrow on the drop-down list and select the pet
you want to play with. After a few times of playing with it, your pet will get
Now for the last way to make your pet happy. If you want your pet to be even
happier, you can groom them. Most pets like to be groomed. Beauty products can
cost a lot of neopoints, but you should be able to find some that are pretty
affordable. If you're looking for a good beauty item, you should probably choose
a hairbrush. There are several kinds of hairbrushes available. Once you get
one, just go to My Items and click on the hairbrush. Then click on the arrow
of the drop-down list and choose the pet you want to groom. Another beauty item
your pet might like is Rainwater Shampoo. This is a very cheap item that you
can groom your pet with.
So now you know how to make your pets happy. And it didn't take a lot of effort
or neopoints, did it? It's very important to keep your pets happy; if they get
too sad, they could turn blue! And if they get mad, they could turn red! What
about all those neopoints you spent painting your pet? Well, I'm afraid that
doesn't matter. If you neglect your pet, color change is possible.
Another way your pet will get mad or sad is if you leave it sick for a while.
If your pet gets sick, for whatever reason, and you can't get the medicine to
cure it, you can just pay a visit to the Healing Springs! This lovely place
is located in the floating cloud of Faerieland. It is run by the kind Water
Faerie, who will heal your pets free of charge! You can go to the Healing Springs
every half hour to get your pet healed. It may take a few tries before she cures
your pet's sickness, but it's better than having a grumpy pet.
And who wants to look at a sad pet all the time anyway? Happy pets are much
more enjoyable. Also, you must keep your pet fed and strong if you wish for
them to compete in the Battledome. If they are hungry, they will not be able
to fight. And if they are weak, they will get beaten easily. If your pet doesn't
win a fight it might get sick, and you'll have to pay another visit or two to
the Healing Springs. Training your pet isn't a bad idea, but that's another
story. Training them doesn't particularly make them happy, unless you consider
winning a fight in the Battledome fun. Some people might, but that doesn't mean
it will affect the happiness level of your pet.
If you want to see how happy your pet it, go to Pet Central. The link to that
is located on the main sidebar. Then click on the button with a Snorkle on it
that says Quick Ref. This is the Quick Reference page, where you can check all
your pet's stats. Your pet's happiness level is listed there too, and you can
also see if your pet is hungry and needs to be fed.
So remember; feed your pet, play with it, groom it, keep it healthy, and they'll
always love you! They key is to love your pet. After all, that's why we play
the site, isn't it? Almost the very first thing you do when you join is make
a Neopet. If you don't love your pet, it won't love you.
