Welcome to our page, which is dedicated to the cutest one eyed feline in Neopia -- Meowclops!

General Info

(Note: The etymology of the name "Meowclops" is derived from "Cyclops". The plural of "Cyclops" is "Cyclopes"; however, I find "Meowclopes" rather unnatural, and will be sticking to "Meowclops" for both the singular and plural forms.)

The history of Meowclops is a somewhat convoluted one. While most petpets just show up in the News one day, and in their appropriate shops shortly thereafter, that is not how Meowclops came to be.

The News of October 11, 2002 showed the first appearance of Meowclops: meowfirst

The petpet Meowclops replaced was a Cyclopian, which was a boy with one eye. TNT deemed this petpet neither particularly Neopian or spooky. If you have a Cyclopian attached, you can remove it from your pet, and it will turn into a Meowclops; otherwise, it will remain a Cyclopian.

Meowclops is classified as a Spooky Petpet with rarity 180, which means that it is retired and no new ones will be released. Cyclopians were available in shops, and Meowclops were briefly available as well. Thanks go out to rivellangel for this info about Meowclops.

How to Get Meowclops

Since you can't get Meowclops from a shop, how can you get one? Well, since the price of a Meowclops is well over 99,999 NP, you can't get it from a user shop, either. Basically, you are limited to two realistic options: the Trading Post and Auctions.

Why are Meowclops so expensive? They're retired, for one thing, but perhaps more importantly, attaching a Meowclops to your pet and going to your Quick Reference page will give you this cute avatar, which was first seen in the News on August 18, 2003:

avatar

If you want the avatar but do not care to own a Meowclops, you can borrow any color Meowclops, attach it to your pet, view the Quick Reference page, and give it back. Since the Trading Post only can deal with NP (aka "pure") up to 800,000, you will typically need to make several passes for borrowing. Contact lenders for details. Note that having a Slorgclops will not give you the Meowclops or Slorg avatars. (It is unknown whether Cyclopian will give you the avatar. Since Cyclopian is no longer available, this is irrelevant to the vast majority of players.)

If you want the Meowclops as a petpet, but only have pure, it is probably easiest to buy a Meowclops from Auctions. Even if the Meowclops you find is listed on the Trading Post, many players will set up a private auction for you (i.e., make you a Neofriend, and then make the auction for Neofriends only).

While you are in the process of purchasing your Meowclops, it is recommended that you keep a bunch of junk items in your inventory (omelettes, Underwater Fishing items, etc.), as well as a few Pant Devil Attractors. It is unlikely to occur, but if the Grundo Leader or Pant Devil random event shows up and an item is stolen, it's better if the stolen item is a Pant Devil Attractor or junk item rather than Meowclops! Still, spend the least amount of time you can with the Meowclops sitting in your inventory; either attach it, or put it in your SDB, as neither having Pant Devil Attractors or junk items is a guarantee your Meowclops will not be stolen. If you have Premium, you can use the Portal to give the petpet to your pet, and no random events will be generated.

If you find a great deal on a painted Meowclops, but prefer the unpainted form, you can buy the Meowclops and paint it with a Black Petpet Paint Brush.

August 26, 2006 was a happy day :). That's when KaterinaLynne got her dream petpet -- Mystery the Meowclops!

Meowclops Colors and Directory

Meowclops (and the related Slorgclops) are available in a variety of pretty colors. If you'd like to be added to this list, Neomail me and provide your pet's name who has the Meowclops or related petpet attached, as well as if you'd like your entry to be linked to your pet. Only the petpet name will be listed. Since Neopets does not allow searches by petpet name, you will have privacy if you decide not to link your pet. Also, if you're in this directory and you change any pertinent info (i.e., attached Meowclops to a different pet, changed color, or removed altogether), Neomail me as well.

Cooking Pot

You can create a few Meowclops related items in the Cooking Pot: Slorgclops (Meowclops + Slorg), Blackeyed Meowclops Toy (Meowclops Plushie + Black Eyed Peas), and Meow Muffin (Battle Muffin + Meowclops Head Pillow).

Note that to create the Slorgclops, it appears that you must use an unpainted Slorg and an unpainted Meowclops. I tried making a Uggazew (Uggatrip + Mazzew) by combining an unpainted Uggatrip with a Plushie Mazzew, and the recipe did not succeed. In any case, Meowclops are currently worth much more than Slorgclops, so the Slorgclops recipe doesn't make a lot of sense to use. :)

Merchandise

For a while, you could purchase a Meowclops Plushie. I have one. He was lost for a while in my house, but we found him. Here's a photo of him before he got lost. One of these days I will take a better picture. :P Sadly, with the revamping of the Neopets product line, Meowclops Plushies are now retired.

You can also purchase apparel featuring Meowclops from Zazzle, as well as the TCG cards listed above, including a Red Meowclops TCG card that does not have a Neopian equivalent. (Note: TCG cards are no longer being made. There are new cards instead, although I don't know if any of them will feature Meowclops.) In addition, Meowclops is one of the petpets featured in the game Petpet Adventures, available for the PSP. The Merch News link on Neopets is a handy place to find out about merchandise.

Games and Plots

Sophie's Stew

The most famous owner of a Meowclops is Sophie the Swamp Witch. She's a Green Ixi that has her own game.

One of the most entertaining parts of this game is watching Meowclops eat items that would have otherwise dropped to the floor.

Itchy Invasion

In Mission 5 of this game, you'll need to blast away the petpetpets that have infested Meowclops.

Be sure to watch the opening sequence to see more of Meowclops.

Gwyl's Great Escape

In this game, you must pick up gems, and then go to the exit, which looks a lot like a non-bobbling Meowclops Statue Bobblehead.

Tale of Woe Plot

Sophie had quite a big role in the Tale of Woe plot. Her petpet Meowclops was featured in the second potion mixing portion of the plot.

Step 1
After Step 1, Meowclops turned into a hairless, Sphynx-like feline.

Step 2
After Step 2, Meowclops turned into a Meowclops / Bearog combined. Could this be a potential Cooking Pot recipe?

Step 3
After Step 3, Meowclops turned into Dr. Meowsloth.

Step 4
After Step 4, Meowclops was transformed into an abstract art Meowclops.

Step 5
After Step 5, Meowclops was not transformed. He stayed his cute little self. Yay! :)

Other Fun

Meowclops Day

The theme for October 15, 2003 was Meowclops Day (be sure to scroll down). I think it's time for another Meowclops Day; don't you? :) Various items, Neogreetings, new Meowclops colors, and several other things were released that day. By the way, here's the Lenny Conundrum that was released that day, and here's the Petpet Spotlight winner.

Meowclops in the Neopian Times

Some comics I've found include:

If you search for Meowclops in the Neopian Times, you'll also find a few stories, as well as some information about Meowclops in Sophie's Stew. There are also some Meowclops stories in the older issues, so search there as well. If you ever want to submit a question for the Editorial, you'll see a Meowclops on the Editorial Submission page. By the way, even TNT likes Meowclops and Dr. Sloth thinks Meowclops is cute! :)

Other Sightings

Meowclops is mentioned in Sophie's Neopedia entry.

A Pirate Meowclops can be seen for the Trading Post link of the Neopets FAQ.

This Art Gallery page contains quite a few Meowclops images.
