Pets Turning Lazy After Halloween
NEOPIA CENTRAL - Halloween has come and gone, and all your pet has been doing
is sitting in their Neohome, eating all their Halloween treats.
Your pet used to always be active - running, jumping, walking, and having a
good time outdoors with friends. Now, it seems that all they do is sit and eat
candies and other goodies from trick-or-treating. Not to mention the shape their
teeth will be in!
It blows your mind away at how active they were BEFORE Halloween, but now you
have come to the realization - that they were only exercising so they could
get even MORE candy!
I'm hoping that the following guide will help to get your pet back out doors,
exercising and having fun again, while still enjoying their treats.
1. Take your pet for a walk. Depending on where you live, there's a variety
of places to go. For example, if you live in Neopia Central, you could go to
the Rainbow Fountain and watch all the pets and petpets get painted new pretty
colors. Or perhaps you could take a walk across the way to the Money Tree, that's
always a good place to get exercise, as you have to be pretty quick in order
to get anything. Just don't get too greedy, though; make sure some of the other
needy pets get something.
2. Head over to Meridell and play Cheeseroller. That not only gets you running,
but gets your mind working to concentrate at the task at hand. Who knows, you
might even earn a flashy trophy, or that avatar your pet has always wanted!
3. The Ruins of Maraqua is another good spot to go. While you're not really
being 'active', you can enjoy a day of fishing. It's a great way to get out
of the house and into the open waters for some fresh air. It's also a very relaxing
activity which can clear your mind and leave you stress free.
4. Gormball is a fun game to play, and it also gives you a good upper body
workout. You're constantly turning and moving your arms while catching the ball;
be sure to duck, though. That ball just might explode on you!
5. If your pet is a Grundo, and you're in the Space Station, he or she will
surely get a great workout running away from Dr. Sloth, who still thinks he
can capture Grundos to be his slaves!
6. Take your pet over to the Employment Center; they're surely to lose some
weight if they're kept busy having to run back and forth getting the necessary
items required to complete the job and collect their reward.
7. The beach in Mystery Island is always a pleasant spot. There are always
lots of fun activities going on - swimming, beach volleyball, water skiing,
diving lessons and so much more. A great summer time activity to help get you
back in shape. While you're there, you may as well treat your pet to a ride
on the Tiki Tours; after all, TOO much exercise at once isn't good.
8. The Swashbuckling Academy is a good place to take your pet. Cap'n Threelegs
will whip that pet of yours into shape in no time. Your pet has always said
how they'd like to be a great warrior; can't do that very well if you're fat,
now can you?
9. The Haunted Woods is another good place to go; the Brain Tree and the Esophagor
are pretty demanding. A lot of exercise can be gained here, as while you are
doing quests for the Brain Tree and the Esophagor, you also have to be quick
to dodge those ghosts and zombies that are after you.
10. Put on your winter gear and head on up to Terror Mountain. A good game
of Cliffhanger will not only give your brain a workout trying to figure out
the puzzle, but having to trudge up the mountain in all that snow will surely
give you a run for your money.
Your pet won't brush their teeth, and you are worried that you will be spending
lots of time in the dentist office. How can you get your pet to do that? Here's
a few ideas that might get them interested:
1. Buy them candy flavored tooth paste. If they constantly crave the taste
of candy, then maybe a nice bubble gum flavored tooth paste is the option for
2. Bring them to the store with you and have them pick out a nice new tooth
brush. You know there has always been a couple different ones your pet has had
their eyes on, so let them pick. It gives them more fun and might spark their
interest a bit more to want to use it.
3. Show them pictures of what happens to their teeth when they don't brush.
If they don't take care of their teeth, then they won't have any to enjoy all
these goodies with!
4. Take them to the dentist. Even if there is nothing wrong with their teeth
at that current time, secretly ask the dentist to tell your pet they have lots
of cavities and other things wrong; this may scare your pet into wanting to
take better care of their teeth.
If your Neopet gets feisty and wants to protest, and gives you the story of
"well, it's my body I can do what I choose with it," then let them. After all,
if they want to sit around being overweight and can't go out and enjoy the things
they once did because they got too carried away with sitting around and eating
junk food, then that's their problem.
If they come to you and complain they have toothaches, the only thing you can
tell them is that you tried to explain what would happen by not taking care
of themselves. Tell them that they'll have to find their own solutions to their
problems since they didn't want to listen to you in the first place. After a
while, you can help them, but let them struggle a little; let them see just
how tough it is to correct something that they caused by not listening.
Hopefully with this small guide, your pets will appreciate you a little and
will want to take good care of themselves. Of course, there are many other ways
I'm sure that you can use to persuade your pets, but I'm hoping that my few
ideas will get you started on the right track. Who knows, maybe you could use
to shed a few pounds yourself and will have fun with your pet in doing so!
Remember, exercise, healthy eating, and proper hygiene leads to a long and
happy, healthy life!
