The mayor cordially invites you…

June 29, 2009

…to join us as we celebrate the 4th of July and Canada Day this week!

This update is for Facebook only. Remember that any items labeled This Week’s Special (TWS) will be in store until midnight GMT on Monday the 6th of July, 2009, but may be available again at some point in the future.

Here in the Pet Society village we love any old excuse for a party. Whether it be Cinco De Mayo, St. Patrick’s Day, Carnival… there’s nothing we enjoy more than bringing all the millions of Pet Society pets from all over the world together for a little celebration.

So this week with the 4th of July and Canada Day both coming up we thought it might be fun to stock the shops with all kinds of American and Canadian goodies like popcorn, maple syrup and of course plenty of cake. Because let’s face it, what’s a party without cake?

But it’s not all red white blue and, er, maple leaf shaped. We’ve also added a range of iron scroll furniture to add an elegant touch to your homes. A lot of it wouldn’t look out of place in your garden either. The perfect centerpiece to a Victorian themed garden perhaps?

The Iron Scroll furniture can be found in the Cash Shop.

Meanwhile “?” has been busy working on all kinds of weird and wonderful new stock for his Mystery Shop, like the new Faerie Mystery Egg vending machine where you’ll find all kinds of amazing faerie related items like beds, doors and windows. These are a little different to previous Mystery Eggs, by the way – firstly you can gift them just like any other item, and secondly they’re all full size rather than toys! “?”‘s also put a mysterious new potion on the shelves. In “?”‘s own words: “Give this potion a try, you’ll light up the sky!”. We’re not 100% what he’s talking about but it sure sounds exciting!


So come along and celebrate with us. There’s balloons and cake and fireworks and costumes for your pet to wear and really look the part. There’s even vintage popcorn machines!

Acacia has a dream…

June 27, 2009

This is a story that we received from Yiling where she writes about her pet Acacia finding her talent! 😉

Written by: Yiling (Lol is 4 Lollipop)

Acacia had grown up having had a smooth, happy childhood and led a peaceful life, never daring to venture out of her comfort zone. Every day she would visit her friends, do some races, do some shopping and housekeeping, and that was about it. Oh yes, and playing with her dolls.


Though each day was set in an organised routine she was accustomed with, Acacia always felt that she must go out there and actually do something to live her dreams.

Acacia thought that helping Lily out in the clothes shop would be quite a good job, since she was very into fashion.

But she kept finding herself losing concentration and wandering away from the service desk because she was distracted by all the beautiful clothes there, leaving a lot of customers waiting for a long time.



Lily was displeased with her, so she left the clothes store, feeling depressed and unmotivated.


She then thought that helping out in the community by bumping trees for wasted coins would be an excellent business, since she would actually make quite a lot of money herself by doing so. But that was pretty much a failure. On the left is the number of coins she started with on the first round, and on the right is how much she had when she finished.



The Pet Volunteers committee did not trust her abilities anymore, so Acacia had to leave and do something new. While she was still feeling down, her friend encouraged her to try applying for Petlympics track team trials at the stadium. Filled with passion once again, Acacia decided to have a go wearing her sportiest outfit. But still it didn’t help. She always forgot when to start…


Kept falling all over the place… And always ended up being last…



Acacia lost hope completely. She had no idea where to go next. What should she do?


Just when Acacia was crying herself to sleep every night, a new pet came into town. He was a gardener who volunteered to train Acacia. At first, Acacia wasn’t all that interested in gardening. But after seeing her first garden design, her new teacher was very pleased, and announced proudly that he had found a budding new talent. Acacia, happy and excited, put in all her effort and created a unique, tasteful indoor garden to enter the annual Pet Florists Contest.


She won first prize – The Garden Bee Award! Acacia was so happy that she had finally achieved a great goal!



Acacia learnt that everyone is different and has unique skills and abilities, and that they can each achieve their dreams in a way that is suitable for them. She is feeling so hopeful and optimistic towards the future now that she has a purpose once again, and nothing, absolutely nothing, can ever stop her from now on!

Enhance your shopping experience!

June 26, 2009

Hey Pet Society fans! The latest update for our Facebook version of the game has just gone live, so sign onto Pet Society now to check out what’s new!

You can now purchase multiple items from any of the Pet Society stores (excluding the Cash Shop). Simply select the item you wish to purchase, and then adjust the number (which begins at one) using the blue plus and minus buttons! The total purchase cost will be displayed for the number of items you have selected, and then just select the green tick to confirm! Similarly, if you are selling items you own back to the store, you can now sell them in multiples as well.

Before you run to the shops to check out that feature, you should also know that now when you are purchasing an item of clothing, you will see a preview of your pet wearing that item prior to buying it on the right hand side of the purchase dialogue box! This may help you work out exactly what you would like your pet to wear before spending your coins! If you would like to buy a hat to match with a particular dress or shirt for example, be sure to dress your pet in the dress/shirt before going to buy the hat to use this feature to its full advantage!

Finally, “?” has been hunting far and wide for some new products to hide in his mystery boxes, according to the last news from him, he has found some interesting items (which are now available), but has hidden them away very well, and only left a few clues:

  • Float to the heavens! (Blue Mystery Box)
  • See stars without bumping your head! (Golden Mystery Box)
  • Flaunt your Canadian pride! (Golden Mystery Box)

Updated! Here are the images!

Friendly, but mysterious, transactions!

June 20, 2009

Hey Pet Society fans! The latest update for our Facebook version of the game has just gone live, so sign onto Pet Society now to check out what’s new!

Firstly, with all the beaches around Pet Society this week, it was hard to walk around the neighbourhood without venturing into one, so not surprisingly, “?” passed a few when returning to his store after going mysterious places for awhile to organise his next mysterious items (which are now available)! Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on which way you look at it, while passing through one beach, a Red Parrot swooped down and plucked the pictures “?” was holding right out of his paws. Obviously though, the Red Parrot loves to chatter, so it wasn’t long before he opened his beak to let out a few squawks, and the pictures went tumbling into the ocean. Sirius dived into the sea as fast as she could, and eventually dragged out the saturated images, really, all that was left though, was coloured blobs on the page, see:




(Blue Mystery Box)

(Golden Mystery Box)

(Golden Mystery Box)

Secondly, the coins for visits have been restructured; due to this, you will now be able to earn more coins from some visits. If a friend has been active in Pet Society within the last 24 hours, you will get an additional 10 coins for visiting that friend (for example, if you visit them in your first 50 friend visits, you will receive 30 coins instead of 20 for visiting them)! 🙂

Thirdly, you will notice that there have been some updates to your Friends Bar! You now have three friends lists to choose from: ‘All’ – this list includes all of your friends, and is nearly the same as the list we used to have; ‘Active’ – this list includes those friends who have played Pet Society in the last 24 hours; and ‘Visits’ – this list is a list of everyone who you can still earn coins from for visiting today, as soon as you make the visit, that friend is removed from the list! 😉

In conjunction with the new Friends Bar, you will notice a new red pet icon on the left of some of your friends’ avatars on the Friends Bar. The red pet icon indicates friends that have been active in Pet Society in the last 24 hours, and hence those who you will receive the bonus 10 coins for visiting! Also, you can now tell who you have already visited today from the colour of the background behind each friend on the Friends Bar; the initial grey background behind each will change to a much lighter grey after you have received coins from visiting that friend today.

Using the new lists, the new icon, and the background colours, you now have more information about how many coins you will earn from any given visit, and you could even decide who you wish to visit first to maximise your coin earning!

We hope you enjoy these updates!

Updated! Here are the pictures of the mysterious items!

Pet Society Garden Competition

June 15, 2009


Hey Pet Society fans!

We hope you are all enjoying the new Garden Feature in Pet Society on Facebook!

To celebrate this fantastic new feature, we would love all of you to show us how green-fingered you are by participating in our latest forum contest, the Pet Society Garden Competition! 🙂

So here’s the idea. You take a photo of your garden (or if you don’t have a garden perhaps you could take a photo of your friend’s garden, or a local park, or something similar) and you try to make your Pet Society garden look as similar as possible. Then you show us both your photo and an image of your Pet Society garden in the forum.

Before entering, be sure to read the official details in the forum, located here: and read and agree to the Terms and Conditions, which are found here:

The top 3 most accurate, interesting and fun entries will be catapulted into stardom on! and will receive 100,000, 50,000 and 25,000 Pet Society coins for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places respectively.

We’ll be taking entries until July 10th, and reporting the winners shortly after, to give you all plenty of time to cultivate your gardens until they’re just right!

So put on your gardening gloves, pick up your plough, get planting, and be sure to have fun!

How does your garden grow?

June 8, 2009

New garden feature

Well folks, we’ve been working hard on the latest feature for Pet Society, and just in time for summer we’re really proud to show you around your very own gardens!

You should find that you already have one garden, and if you’ve been playing for at least a few days you should have two. You’ll notice two little extra cells in your map which you can click on to find them. Go see!

If you take a stroll down to the Pet Society high street you should also see  a new gardening store. Allow us to introduce Mrs. Appleblossom. We’re sure you’ll love her, she’s a very kind old lady and an excellent gardener. You’ll be able to buy seeds from Mrs. Appleblossom and that’s where things get really interesting.

You’ll notice that you have mounds of earth in your garden. These are seed beds where you can plant flower, tree and vegetable seeds. Seeds are a little like Mystery Boxes — you buy a flower, tree or vegetable seed, but you have no idea what will grow out of it. You may even find they grow into rare Mysterious Plants!

Here’s how all the seeds work:

Flower seeds

Flower seeds take about 24 hours to grow into all kinds of colorful flowers. These can be pulled up from the ground and used to decorate your house (they look great in a vase), given to your friends as a exclusive gift which they won’t find in the shops, or just sold to earn you some coins.

Tree seeds

Tree seeds take 72 hours to grow. Once a tree is fully grown it will start to bear fruit, so it’s worth checking back daily to see what it’s produced. You can give fruit to your pet, send it as a gift to your friends, or sell it on for a steady coin income. The fruit which the tree bears depends on what type of tree it is. You could even create an orchard in your garden!

Vegetable seeds

Vegetables grow larger and larger the longer you leave them in the ground, although after 9 days the vegetable won’t grow any more. The larger a vegetable is the more valuable it is, but leaving them to grow for too long can be risky because the longer you wait the greater the chance you might find the vegetable has rotted away by the time you pull it up! If you can create a steady flow of large vegetables you may be able to turn a tidy profit, or perhaps you’d just like to share lots of vegetables with your friends? Perhaps you could arrange a competition to see who can grow the largest vegetable? It’s really up to you!

We hope you all enjoy your new gardens as much as we’ve enjoyed making them. We’d love to talk about what we’ve got planned next but it’s just too secret… check back soon for some nice surprises!
