Quote of the Week


It's not every day you see a Kau wandering about with tentacles where its mouth should be.


Mutant Misconceptions



A common misconception is that the colour mutant is meant to be the literal meaning of the word, when, in fact, it is an acronym! M.U.T.A.N.T. really means Meek and Utterly Tender-hearted Adorable Neopets that are Tickle-able. I'm not kidding, folks! These pets are all about giggling, being happy, spreading joy and baking cupcakes! These pets are a true testament to the saying "You can't judge a book by its cover..."

"Empathetic Raindrops" by sylviau
He paused from his silent, motionless vigil by the window to softly caress a single red rose that stood in a vase, which rested on the windowsill. At his touch, the majestic flower wilted, and its gentle petals drooped. He sighed again, and stared out the window once more. Grey pets are often misunderstood.
