Happy 2nd Birthday Pet Society!

July 29, 2010

Hey Pet Society Fans! This week we are celebrating Pet Society’s 2nd Birthday! It’s hard to believe that 2 years have gone by already. August 8th 2008 is when it all began, and I must say, the town and everything in it has certainly grown and changed in ways that we never even dreamed of. Did you ever think, back then, that our friends would be able to help us build our very own Hot Air Balloon? One that would take us across the sky to an exclusive location on our map to dig treasure? I sure didn’t!

Yep, things sure have changed, but there is one thing that remains the same, if not stronger than ever! Our love for the game and all of the amazing updates we get spoiled with every week. The Pet Society Team deserves a great big pat on the back for all of their hard work keeping this game alive and feeding our addiction! (I’m not ashamed to admit it!) And you, the fans, are what keeps them motivated! So a huge thanks to you too!

Please note that any items marked OWO (One Week Only) will be available until Monday August 9th at 12 AM GMT but may return at any time in the future.
In honor of Pet Society’s Birthday, “?” has hidden some new items in the Mystery Boxes for us to find! To start the festivities early, you can start searching now for these special items! Good luck with your hunt!

For the overemotional proud pet owners, we have tissues ready! And the cute and cuddly Platypus Plushie is eager to join the large and always growing toy collection of PS! This of course means that we need to make room for the new toys, so we are sadly saying goodbye to the Tropical Flamingo Cocktail, and the Holiday Bear Plushie. These free gifts are available to send to your friends now!

What is it about The Mayor that makes him the talk of the town? Is it because of his strong, authoritative figure? Because he’s filthy rich? Maybe it’s because of the hat… ah yes, the hat! Everybody wants their hands on that hat! And now… if you’re willing to get your hands a little dirty of course, you can have your very own piece of the Mayor! The Weekly Digging Item is the Mayor’s Hat. You can start digging today to find yours!

Since Pet Society is turning 2 this week, it seems fitting to have two limited edition items for double the excitement! On Tuesday, the very romantic Pets In Love Water Globe will be on sale in the Market (Toys & Collectibles) (50k available), and on Wednesday Rob the Robot will be coming to the Boutique (Amazing Items) and only 10k of these cheeky little guys will be available, so make sure you get yours before they’re all gone!

Keeping with the “2” pattern, we have two new collaborative items this week as well! The Surprise Birthday Box requires 15 friends to help build, but I won’t spoil the surprise! You’ll have to find this one out for yourself. The Party Invitation requires some materials that you can get by either asking your friends for help, or using PFC to complete the set quickly. Once you have successfully built your Party Invitation you can place the item in a room of your choice (wherever you want to have the party!) The game will then select three random friends from your friend list to come over and celebrate with your pet! Please note you can only have one party per room, and the party will last a full week. Both of these items will be available in the shops on Monday, August 2nd at 12 AM GMT. But you can build them through the hammer icon already!

You can select one of these beautiful items for a friend, or simply keep one for yourself. If you choose to give the gift of mystery, your friend won’t know the contents of the box until August 8th when the secret will finally be revealed to them and the box will open! If you choose to keep it for yourself.. well, you’ll know what’s inside, but you still have to wait for it to open too!

One of three adorable baby Robins are looking for a home! First you need to purchase the Evolving Robin Egg, then after three days your egg will hatch and either a Pink, Green or Blue baby Robin will burst out of the shell and fly around your room!

One of the most important things when planning a Birthday Party is the decor! What would a party be without matching festive tables and chairs, ribbons and streamers, and even a Birthday Bear Plushie? I suggest displaying the yummy pastries found in the French Patisserie Mystery Box on the new Pastry Fridge to truly impress your guests and their tummies.

The Garden Shop offers something sweet for those with plots to fill! The Beehive Tree Seed, which evolves into the Beehive Tree will produce a lifetime supply of the yummiest, stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth honey you’ve ever tasted!

If you saw the fan feed this week, you will already know all about the Lady PawPaw wig that is set to hit the stores this Monday along with a ton of other great party outfits for both girls and boys! Check out the clothing store for all of your party digs! ♫ Rah rah, ah ah ah… rama ramama.. GaGa Oooh la la.. ♫

Don’t overdo it on the sweets! As tempting as these may look, combined with the honey pots, pastries, and sheer excitement from the Lady PawPaw wig, it is a recipe for disaster. Hyper pets + parties that last a full week = late night visits from the Mayor. And I don’t think he’ll be pleased that he wasn’t invited!

Bella saw some weird looking creature prowling the stores this afternoon, and just as she was about to call security she recognized the strange figure beneath what looked like tentacles… it was Hideeni! Yep, you heard me, Hideeni has returned from his vacation and is not wasting a second of his time back in town. Word has it that Hideeni (dressed as an Octopus) will be handing out Seashells to all of your friends that he collected on his trip. He also brought back a beautiful Shell Display Case for you to display the beautiful souvenir collection on. (Can be found in the Furniture Shop (Living) or Market (Toys & Collectibles) on Monday) Welcome back Hideeni!

You asked for them, now they’re back! Come Monday, some of the Cash Shop’s favorite oldies are returning to the stores via the new Revival Mystery Box. The items found inside are classic items that are no longer found in stores, so if you missed them the first time, or simply want an extra, here is your chance! These boxes are only available for a limited time, can you collect them all before they’re gone?

Let’s admit it, our pets are pretty spoiled. Luxury bathrooms, nanny bots, digging for treasure practically in their own backyard?! We think the petlings deserve a bit of pampering too. The new Petling Resort provides 5 star care for up to 3 of your full grown petlings. This means you will not have to feed them or worry that they’ll run away.. it’s all taken care of! Simply drag and drop your pet onto the resort and they will remain safe and sound until you decide the vacation’s over. (Note that if you own multiple resorts more of your petlings will be taken care of. For instance if you have 2 resorts, 6 petlings will be able to visit the resort and so on)

A little variety never hurt anyone right? That’s why we’ve added some more options to both the Animal Costume Bag and the Petling Biscuits selection. If your pet is feeling silly this week they can “Monkey around” with the adorable new Monkey Costume Set. This set comes with a monkey hairband, tail and gloves. Or, if they’re feeling “mellow” this week, perhaps the new Safari Yellow Biscuit will tickle their fancy.

If you’re looking for a sleepy friend to keep you company, you’ll need to ask your friends for some help! The newest Collaborative item is the animated Sleepy Hippo Pond. All you need to do is request some help (a simple click should do the trick!) from your friends via Facebook wall posts. Once they help out (you need 30 click for this not so little guy!) your friends will be awarded some coins as a thank you! Win-win! Of course if you’re impatient like me, you could always pick this sleepy little fellow up from the stores. Just take a stroll over to the Boutique, he can be found in Beautiful Items.

If you want to support WWF (and get some cute little critters as a bonus!) Take some time to visit Terrence at the Boutique. 10% of all purchases will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund, you can read more about it here. If you’re an animal lover and are thinking about getting all of the items, I suggest getting the bundle, it’ll save you some cash! We are offering a discount to all players that choose the Tropical Forest Bundle.

“?” has been busy this week hiding new items in the Win Or Lose boxes. He never says much, but something tells me this is his way of hinting at the new Pirates Ahoy! game. Hmmm.. very sneaky…

It’s not easy living in the jungle. There are no French Patisseries out in the wild, that’s for sure! No, if your pet is going to live like Tarzan, he or she will have to eat like Tarzan too!

Cute, furry little Leopard Petlings are making their way into town this week. It takes a more experienced pet owner to take care of these little guys. They grew up in the wild afterall, so for your own safety, we are only giving these petlings out to pets who are level 22 and over. We wouldn’t want to see you lose a finger or anything!

July 16, 2010

Hey Pet Society fans! Welcome to a brand new week! Before we get to the new and delicious items… I have an announcement to make about one of our good friends, Hideeni.

Over the last few months Hideeni has been creeping around in our houses and our stores showering us with gifts and happiness (well, for most of us anyway. To some he’s just a stalker. A generous stalker none the less, but still a stalker.) Lugging bags full of gifts is a tiresome job, so Hideeni has decided to go on vacation and will not be popping up around town for a little while. Now your pet can sleep peacefully knowing there won’t be any unsuspecting visitors popping up randomly in the middle of the night. (Or while they’re in the bath. Bella still insists on wearing a bathing suit in the tub since the last incident)

But have no fear! For Hideeni’s vacation is only temporary. He did not say when he would return, but he will be back sometime in the future. Bon Voyage Hideeni! Make sure you bring us back a souvenir!

The Mystery Boxes have just been updated with 3 brand new items. You can sign on now via Facebook to start looking. You’ll never know “whoooooo!” you might find inside. Good luck!

Someone’s been playing tricks throwing ice cream cones on the heads of unsuspecting pets. You know how the story goes, it only takes one person before a trend starts! Maybe this daring fashion piece will make it into Kooki’s stylish Fashion Blog! *crosses fingers* You can send a silly Strawberry Cone Hat or adorable Pelican Plushie to your friends today. They’re free!

Have you ever eaten a fish with chocolate drizzled over it? How about one that was covered in cream and surrounded by a delectable cookie crust? No? Really?! Well, you might be tempted once you see the fish that can be caught with the new Bakery Fish Bait. With this bait you can catch the 10 different species of Bakery Fish! I can’t promise any scales will be removed though, so eat at your own risk! Or put them in an aquarium as a friend for your pet if that’s more your thing. 😉 This new bait can be found in Outdoor > Fish or in the Boutique > Amazing Items. Happy Fishing!

Your pet can enjoy the summer sun all year round in this garden, and the best part is, it comes with two new plots!

It’s a good thing Hideeni will be out of town this week, I heard he likes cake!

In case you haven’t noticed, the sweets released this week were inspired by an old story called Hansel and Gretel. Here is a summary for those that aren’t familiar with it:

Hansel and Gretel are the young children of a poor woodcutter. They have an evil step-mother who convinces the father to abandon the children in the woods as there is not enough food to feed the whole family. Hansel, aware of the plan, leaves a trail of pebbles back to the house so he and his sister find their way back home. The step-mother is angry and locks the two children up for the night with only a loaf of bread and water. The next night, the woodcutter attempts the same plan again; this time Hansel leaves a trail of bread-crumbs but they get eaten by hungry birds and the two children get lost in the woods.

After wandering around, Hansel and Gretel stumble across a house made of gingerbread and other confectionery. They are very hungry and begin to eat it. It is owned by an evil old witch who lures them inside. She traps Hansel in a cage and forces Gretel to do the housework , continually sweeping the house. She feeds Hansel lots of food with the intention of eating him. Eventually the witch turns on the oven. Gretel comes up behind her and kicks her into it, shuts the door firmly and padlocks it. They hang around in the house for a couple of days eating the sweets and they find some valuable gold coins. Once they are convinced that the witch is completely burnt they successfully find their way home and are met by their ecstatic father. He tells them that his evil wife is dead and they are now rich because of the gold coins’ value. They all live happily ever after.

(For example if you buy a Golden Chocolate Box and a Purple Chocolate Box, you will get two of the same chocolates on day 1 and so on) Remember that you must sign in everyday to get the chocolates!

Last, but certainly not least, should you find your Gretel Bear Plushie while digging this week, she will definitely want to be reunited with her brother Hansel. He’ll be a little bit easier to find however, all you need to do is head over to the Market (Toy’s and Collectibles) to take him home with you.

As you may have guessed from the title of this blog post, it is all about the Bastille Day next week!
From Wikipedia:

Bastille Day is the French national holiday which is celebrated on 14 July each year. In France, it is formally called La Fête Nationale (National Celebration) and commonly le quatorze juillet (the fourteenth of July). It commemorates the 1790 Fête de la Fédération, held on the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789; the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison was seen as a symbol of the uprising of the modern nation, and of the reconciliation of all the French inside the constitutional monarchy which preceded the First Republic, during the French Revolution. Festivities are held on the morning of 14 July, on the Champs-Élysées avenue in Paris in front of the President of the Republic.

The parade opens with cadets from the École Polytechnique, Saint-Cyr, École Navale, and so forth, then other infantry troops, then motorized troops; aviation of the Patrouille de France flies above. In recent times, it has become customary to invite units from France’s allies to the parade; in 2004 during the centenary of the Entente Cordiale, British troops (the band of the Royal Marines, the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment, Grenadier Guards and King’s Troop, Royal Horse Artillery) led the Bastille Day parade in Paris for the first time, with the Red Arrows flying overhead. In 2007 the German 26th Airborne Brigade led the march followed by British Royal Marines.

The president used to give an interview to members of the press, discussing the situation of the country, recent events and projects for the future. Nicolas Sarkozy, elected president in 2007, has chosen not to give it. The President also holds a garden party at the Palais de l’Elysée.

Article 17 of the Constitution of France gives the President the authority to pardon criminals, and since 1991 the President has pardoned many petty offenders (mainly traffic offences) on 14 July. In 2007, President Sarkozy declined to continue the practice.

To help start the celebration of this day,  your pet needs to look the part! You can find some great Marie Antionette and Luis XIV inspired clothing in the Clothes shop next week to achieve  that classic French look, check out the Blue Striped Shirt and the Red Beret, perfect!

A moment in time…

July 2, 2010

Hey Pet Society fans! Step back in time this week, to the rockin’ 1950s! Sirius thought her Teleporter must have turned into a time travel machine when she stepped into the Mystery Store this week, as “?” proudly showed her pictures of the ‘latest’ new items hidden away in his mystery boxes, as they are totally retro! Sign on to Pet Society via Facebook now to start searching!

Pink Retro Glasses Pink Retro Chair Red Retro Typewriter

If you a decorating retro style, be sure to ask your friends for a stylish Retro Teapot Telephone which is new to the free gifts this week! Or for a fun Canadian friend, send your friends the new Beaver Plushie, and hopefully they will send you one back!

And grab your shovels and head to the Town Forest! Why? Well there’s a new Weekly Digging Special to be found, and he’s super cute! So make sure you find a Happy Raccoon Plushie before he disappears!

Enjoying the World Cup? Sirius is! Bouncy Soccer Balls have been scoring goals across the Village in the last few weeks, and Hideeni has been bringing flags to offer to your friends, to show who they support! Well, with some teams now eliminated from the World Cup, Hideeni has decided, in his infinite wisdom, to remove some of those flags. It’s not bad news though, in fact it’s very exciting, as he’s managed to find 5 new flags to give out – Uruguay, Ghana, Slovakia, Japan and Paraguay! So keep an eye out for Hideeni around the Village, and give your friends a chance to receive one of these flags! 😉

Come Monday, swing back to the 1950s once more with a range of items in stores to set up your own Diner, plus new Jukeboxes, Typewriters, Televisions and more!

There’s something fizzing up the water down at the Pond, the ducks were quacking about it for ages to Sirius, and to be honest she was quite puzzled at what could cause such a stir. This was of course until she saw a remarkable new fish, which almost reminded her of a message in a bottle jumping out of the Pond, the Fizzyfish! Can you catch one?
