Petpet Appreciation – but which petpet is for you?

by lostcontrol92


Every year the 8th of June brings around an opportunity for both us and our neopets to truly display our appreciation for our petpets. Petpets have become a significant member to many Neopian families, and with numerous colours and species there are endless opportunities for us to choose the perfect petpet. This choice of neopet is often heavily influenced by our neopet, whereby we choose our petpet based on colourations and design and how similar they are to that of our neopets. Yet for many fellow Neopians, the decision on which petpet should be given to their beloved neopet is somewhat hindered by a limited budget. In light of this, this article reveals some of the cheapest petpets available today, with each petpet costing no more than 1000 neopoints. It will also advise you in deciding which of these petpets are most appropriate for your neopet based on colour palettes, temperament and design.

Price: 150-500 NP

Most appropriate for: Tyrannian and Brown pets.


Although the price range here may leap outside of the budget, its angelic and peaceful temperament will soon make up for it. Their characteristics somewhat resemble those of a cat, becoming both highly devoted and dependable on their neopet, but also offering support and tranquillity to them.

Price: 900-1000+ NP

Most appropriate for: Snow, White, Yellow, Custard and Gold pets.


This petpet is known to become very shy, scared and worried in strange and new environments.

This love will then be reciprocated alongside loyalty and dependability for life.

Price: 60-110 NP

Most appropriate for: Checkered, Grey, Skunk, White, Shadow pets.


The Bluna is recognized for its frosty exterior and those who pet one without loving care are often left with severe frost bite. Yet this petpet is known to be very loving and loyal to those who care for it, offering both defence and reliability in the strangest of situations.

Price: 600-900 NP

Most appropriate for: Blue, Invisible, Ice and pets.
