Playfish is delighted to introduce a new release of giant panda themed items to Pet Society on Facebook to continue to support World Wildlife Fund’s efforts to protect many endangered animals. Ensure you do your part to help continue to raise awareness for this great cause by purchasing some World Wildlife Fund themed items today and publishing to your News Feed! For each WWF item you purchase, Playfish will donate 10% of the proceeds to WWF until December 31, 2009. Learn more at: www.worldwildlife.org

The giant panda is the rarest member of the bear family and among the world’s most threatened animals, facing both habitat loss and poaching. There are currently fewer than 2,500 in the wild. WWF has been active in giant panda conservation since 1980, and was the first international conservation organization to work in China at the Chinese government’s invitation. WWF is now helping the government of China to undertake its National Conservation Program for the giant panda and its habitat.

To learn more about this topic, visit World Wildlife Fund’s website where you can support WWF with a direct contribution or even make a symbolic giant panda adoption.

Hey Pet Society fans! The latest mysterious items have just been released, so sign on to Pet Society via Facebook now to starting hunting for them!

Sirius was hanging around the Mystery Store today, buying a few boxes, in the hopes of talking to “?”. When she went to the counter to pay for her boxes though, and tried to ask him for some hints as to what could possibly be coming up next, he was simply silent. Determined, she started asking if she could just take a glimpse of the pictures. Strangely, “?” then took an envelope with a black seal from behind the counter and passed it to her (still without saying a word). Sirius ran home excitedly, certain that the images were inside. She was slightly disappointed upon ripping open the envelope once home though, as instead of beautiful images, there was just a piece of paper with some scribbles on it. Sirius has transcribed them as best she can, so see if you can guess what they might be!

  • Malaysian blossom (Blue Mystery Box)
  • Hop off the top (Decor) (Golden Mystery Box)
  • Hard to sweep away (Golden Mystery Box)

Magic or fiction“?”

August 20, 2009

Hey Pet Society fans! There have been some peculiar things going on in the village today (or at least so Sirius tells me). Allegedly, she was being her normal self, and following “?” to try and gain some idea of what could possibly be the newest mysterious items; she spotted him with the images in hand, and while keeping her distance, waiting for an opportunity to glance at the pictures, a strange wind picked up and blew the pictures right out of “?”’s paws, spiralling up into the sky.

Apparently, this was no ordinary wind though, and appeared magical, and slightly green, as if it was created from the bubbles and steam of a cauldron. The pictures flew with this strange wind around the entire village, while Sirius chased after it (she tries hard)!

Supposedly, the wind whipped the pictures around town for an entire half an hour, before eventually calming, and dropping the images right in Sirius’ front garden, amongst the Coconut Trees.

I’m personally not too sure how much of the above story is true, I think Sirius may have just made it up as an excuse for presenting me with oddly blurred green images, so see for yourself and make up your own mind:

In the Clothes Store, Lily has an amazing collection of Indonesian outfits to suit any pet. Truffles loves any food, but he did whisper that the Indonesian desserts he has in store this week are particularly delicious (in the same sentence as saying that he must be out of stock, despite the fact they are clearly visible on the shelves)! Terrence has been exploring Indonesia, and fell in love with the birds of paradise, and hence introduces the Cendrawasih to the Cash Shop this week (needless to say, the Red Parrot is delighted to have a new friend). Plus, the grand Gazebos available in the Luxury and Garden Stores will be a fantastic addition to any outdoor area.

To try and help everyone out, Sirius paid a visit to the Mystery Store to see “?” earlier, especially to ask what mysterious things he may be introducing. He appeared pretty busy though, and quickly muttered a couple of words about each, so see if you can guess what they might be:

  • Balinese crockery (Blue Mystery Box)
  • Go bananas! (Golden Mystery Box)
  • Earthen fire (Golden Mystery Box)

As Sirius was walking home, she stopped to talk to the ducks by the fishing pond (did I mention she likes ducks?). Anyway, she left quite puzzled, as they told her there was something else new and mysterious around now, but she couldn’t work out what they were quacking about, can you?

Updated! The quacking has been translated, and you now have a chance of growing Jasmine from a Flower Seed!
