Submit your pet to the Pet Spotlight!
Pet Name: Cherokae
Greetings, fellow Neopians! I wanted to explain to you why I feel that Cherokae should be given the Pet Spotlight, as there are so many reasons (including but not limited to her ultra-rare appearance, free-spirited personality, and biting sense of humour), but then I decided to share a story with you that requires no explanation…
The idea to enter Cherokae came to me one bitter cold morning in the Ice Caves. Cherokae and I were trudging up the narrow incline that led to the Snowager's cave to gaze at the massive snow beast. We did this daily, sometime after 6 AM and before 7 AM, because Cherokae seemed to enjoy it so much. I assumed that Cherokae was simply enticed by the Snowager's ever-growing mountain of treasure, but she never attempted to steal anything from him. A complete calm would overcome her as she meditated, and Cherokae would become an extension of the ice that formed the cave.
Cherokae had always been a lonely Hissi, even though she had two wonderful sisters and an intense brother. Like many neopets before her, Cherokae felt isolated and different. Her only solace could be found in her owner, her adorable little Snowickle petpet, and her mornings in the Snowager's cave. Still, Cherokae knew that she was apart from the Snowager. This creature of splendor and wonder was an anomaly. Though she loved her Snowickle more than anything in all of Neopia, Snowickles were much smaller than her in size and more relatable to the Snowager and his treasure with their ardor for shiny objects. She was an Ice Hissi.
But Cherokae knew that she could not be the only Ice Hissi. She decided to spend her time cataloguing her closest relations and creating a place for all Ice Hissi to meet and find comfort in knowing that they always have a friend in her. And thus, Cherokae's Ice Hissi Directory (/~Cherokae) was born!
Cherokae felt lost and alone, but she chose not to be, and this is an admirable trait to have. She also took her compassion to the next level by securing something for all Ice Hissi to share. Cherokae treks all over Neopia, searching for her Ice Hissi kin. Not all of them felt lonely or isolated, but Cherokae is of the opinion that just one is more than enough. Some of these Ice Hissi had never heard of the Snowager, and a lot of them had never seen a Snowickle. Cherokae is pleased to share her perspective and her Snowickle so that no Ice Hissi ever has to be alone.
I bet if Cherokae won the Pet Spotlight, she would share it with all of the Ice Hissi in Neopia. No doubt she would share it with all of the little Snowickles too. I chose to enter Cherokae because she is kind and selfless, despite the implications of her icy exterior. I hope Cherokae and her story have brought warmth into your heart, and remember that even the coldest and most jagged of neopets can feel warm and fuzzy inside with a little help from their friends!
