Quote of the Week

Who knows what it is? The long name? The size difference? Your guess is as good as mine. No matter what the cause, petpets are always itching for a fight; maybe a little bugged?

Ready to Adopt?

Hopefully, though, you have not come to disown, but to be that shining ray of sun and take home a petrified little pet. But wait--! Are you truly ready for this? As kind of an act as it is, once you adopt a Neopet, there's no going back. Before you make your final choice, make sure you can say yes to each one of the following questions...

Secret Sweet-Fest

Alright then. Okay, so you really like sweets, right? And you want to get a lot of them. So you get a ton of sweet-tasting things - chocolate, sugar, whipped cream, cakes, snowberries..."
