A Trip to the Pound
THE ADOPTION CENTER- Have you ever been abandoned? If you did, then you would
feel the pain that I felt and all of the other abandoned pets felt. It’s not
a nice feeling. In fact, this feeling is horrible. It’s the feeling that you
don’t exist in the world. It’s the feeling that we are worthless. Nobody wants
us including ourselves.
One of Neopia’s flaws is that so many pets get abandoned, sometimes even multiple
times. The pets cry in their small cages at the adoption center until a loving
owner comes to pick them up. It’s not nice having somebody you don’t even know
take you home. It’s not nice at all. I, the best NT reporter that existed, is
here to tell you about us pets and the adoption center we all know and hate.
The flaw in the adoption center is that so many pets get abandoned, and so
many people create pets that are born to be abandoned. They are sometimes created
for an avatar or just for the fun of creating a pet and seeing what will happen
to the pet in the pound. You don’t know how many times I have seen pets with
almost the same exact names in the pound. People are creating pets to be abandoned.
How sad is that? This is a pretty tragic thing going on, so since I am here
at the adoption center right now, I will talk to some of the pets that are here.
Silver: I am here with a pet named muncher300340 the green Techo. So, how are
Muncher: What?! Huh? How do you know my name?
Silver: It’s on your cage, Sir.
Silver: So, how are you doing?
Muncher: I’m hungry. Do you have any food?
Silver: Nope, I don’t have any food with me. I’m sure that you don’t get much
food around here.
Muncher: Much? We don’t have any at all. You would think that they would just
feed me with a name like Muncher.
Muncher: I can’t even remember those numbers, so don’t even bother saying them.
Silver: Mr. Muncher, about how old are you?
Muncher: What do you mean?
Silver: You must know your age.
Silver: Okay, let’s move on. Who was the last owner you had?
Muncher: I had an owner. All I remember is being in this dump. Some world this
Silver: There are so many better places outside of here.
Muncher: I doubt that. Now could you leave me alone? I’m a bit tired.
That was my conversation with muncher300340. It wasn’t very pleasant and Muncher
didn’t seem the slightest bit happy. He doesn’t even know that there’s a better
life outside of the adoption center it’s so sad. I guess I will talk to one
more pet. Let’s see, this one’s name seems to be…muncher0983? Two pets named
Muncher are almost right next to each other. This should get interesting.
Silver: Hello there, young Grarrl.
Muncher: Oh, hello there.
Silver: You seem much nicer than that Techo over there.
Muncher: You mean my sister? She’s not the strongest in the world.
Silver: So you two are related?
Muncher: I guess you could say that. I only saw her for about two minutes when
I lived with my owner. She was always a timid little girl, only a couple days
old. She was put in the pound right after she was born.
Silver: Wow! What about you?
Muncher: I had to wait a little bit before being abandoned. It wasn’t fun though.
We didn’t even have a house. I just wandered the streets with my owner.
Silver: He abandoned you not too long later, huh?
Muncher: That’s right. I don’t mind, though. I don’t like our owner. Now we
have a chance to get a better one.
Silver: That’s the good thing about the pound. You know, I was in the pound
Muncher: Really, you’re lucky your owner kept you. I’ve seen pets that were
thrown in the pound multiple times.
Silver: You've got to be kidding me.
Muncher: Nope, I’m not kidding. I’m not the luckiest either. The people think
I’m some kind of monster or something.
Silver: I’m sure you will be adopted soon.
Muncher: Yeah, I hope so.
Those are two examples of abandoned pets. That shows that some pets can handle
the pound more than others. I sure couldn’t handle the pound for very long.
Now it’s time for your lesson on how to adopt.
Getting a pet of your own
Now here is the part of my article where I tell you the best way to get a fun,
loving pet of your own. An example of a good pet to adopt is muncher0983. He
is a kind young green Grarrl, but there is more to adopting than that. Let me
I wouldn’t create a pet if I were you. If you wanted a really awesome pet,
there is one already created sitting in the pound. Go to the pound and look
for a pet before creating your own. Search for awhile, maybe multiple times
a day. If you don’t find the kind of pet you want, or if you’re really picky
about the kind of pet you want, then go ahead and create a pet of your own.
When you're looking for a pet in the pound there is a certain way how you should
adopt. When walking down the moldy halls of the pound be sure to look for the
1. You have to have the kind of species that you desire. If you see a species
that you like, they passed part of the inspection.
2. You have to just rely on your gut on what pet you want. When there is a
pet that you want to adopt, then it wouldn’t just have the species and color
you want but you would also just kind of want it in a way you can’t describe.
The pet is like a magnet to you.
3. The name is considered one of the most important things. To me, it is not
the most important. This is only because I don’t like my own name, and I turned
out to be pretty handsome guy. Don’t pick a name with two many numbers. If you
really don’t like the name, then leave the pet. All pets have nick names, so
you can just give an ultra cool nickname to your pet that they will use all
4. You should look for the color you want, but it’s not necessary. You could
always change the color of your pet if you want to, so there you don’t have
to get a specific color. Get a painted or limited edition pet if you want one
and come across one, but just look for a basic colored normal pet. They need
to be loved more than the painted pets, because there are swarms that want them.
After you find the right pet for you, bring it home and introduce it to your
family. It normally takes your family a little bit of time to get used to the
new pet, and it’s not uncommon for them to pick on each other. Make your pet
feel at home and be sure to take care of it forever.
The funnest part of getting a brand new pet of your own is to make up a cool
personality for your pet and draw it. There is an endless variety of personalities
and hobbies you can choose for your pet. This I leave to you, and I’m sure that
there is another guide that would tell you how to do just that.
The possibilities are endless for your pet, and I’m sure your new pet would
love you for taking it out of the pound. Love your pet back, because they need
all of the love that they can take.
