Hello, and welcome to the Grandfathered Pet Directory, the original directory of unconverted Neopets.
On April 26th 2007 everything in Neopets changed. The entire site was revamped, with a brand new layout, and lots of exciting new features, the main one being customisation. In order for customisation to work, all of the pets in a species needed to be drawn in the same pose. So on that day, Neopets received a new, more standardised look.
However, some pets were given an option whether or not to convert. These pets tended to be those that had drastically different redraws, or were very expensive colours. Of course, some owners chose to convert their pets in order to customise them, but some did not. Some pets remained in their old form, non-customisable, but rare and special. These are the Grandfathered Pets. And this directory is dedicated to these few remaining pets which allow us to glimpse back at what Neopets used to look like.
Adding your petIf you would like to add your Neopet to the Grandfathered Pet Directory, first make sure that your pet is an unconverted pet. To do this, go to quick ref to view your Neopets. Select the pet by clicking on its image at the top. If to the right of your pet's image it says ... must be converted in order to be fully customisable, then your pet is unconverted, and therefore eligible to be added to this directory. If your pet is not unconverted then this message will not appear.
Then just send me a neomail including the name, species and colour of your pet(s) and I will add them to the directory as soon as possible.
If you would like me to list your pet under a nickname then please say so in the Neomail.
If you adopted or traded for your Neopet, please make sure that they are not already listed before contacting me.

Remember, these pets are only here for your viewing, and are not up for adoption or trade, so please do not harass their owners.
