A question posed by many Neopians is; "Why do we bother painting our pets colours?" Our pets are just as happy being red, yellow, blue or green as if they were a disco, Maraquan or invisible, is a claim made by many. So what is the reasoning behind spending our hard-earned neopoints on something so trivial as a colour? Many feel that the painting of their pets reflect them as owners - if their pet is an original, sought-after colour, then they are a successful owner, and their neopets must be the best looked after in all Neopia. But is that true?
