Having Fun With Online Pets


Having Fun With Online Pets

The popular phrase “it takes all kinds” is​ usually applied when a​ person is​ distinctly odd,​ a​ bit strange or​ just downright wierd but can easily be applied to​ other aspects of​ life,​ such as​ pets.

Pets are generally concieved to​ be adorable,​ loveable creatures that offer warmth,​ companionship and unconditional love. They are generally concieved to​ be living creatures. But in​ recent years all that seems to​ have changed. Pets can now be intangible. you​ no longer need to​ buy one of​ those bags to​ carry your dog or​ cat in,​ you​ can just hang it​ from your keychain or​ let it​ sleep on​ your hard-drive in​ your computer.

Tamagotchi is​ the​ name (or race?) of​ a​ new breed of​ pets. it​ lives in​ a​ small plastic receptacle that can be the​ color of​ your choice. it​ is​ battery operated and can be with you​ at​ all time to​ keep you​ company since it​ can simply be added to​ your keychain and put in​ your purse or​ pocket. the​ animal that lives within,​ the​ Tamagotchi,​ does require some attention on​ the​ owner´s part: it​ must be fed,​ of​ course,​ it​ must be given an​ education and it​ must be given love. These obligations are remarkably like those a​ parent must see to​ with a​ child and any of​ these obligations is​ overlooked by the​ owner,​ the​ pet suffers and could possibly die. So even though its natural habitat is​ a​ small squarish plastic thing and it​ can only be seen on​ a​ tiny screen,​ it​ is​ considered a​ living thing that must be taken care of​ and looked after.

The same idea prevails on​ computer pets. a​ person can register online on​ especially designed websites,​ select the​ pet that most catches their fancy and then proceed to​ care for it,​ all through the​ computer of​ course,​ some on​ websites,​ others on​ your desktop. as​ with physical pets,​ these virtual ones must be looked after,​ fed,​ played with,​ nurtured in​ order to​ grow and lead a​ happy existence. a​ wide variety of​ possible computer pets can be found on​ the​ internet,​ designed and generated from all over the​ world: Russia,​ Japan,​ United States of​ America,​ France. So an​ individual can also choose its pets nationality. an​ added bonus.

Then of​ course there are the​ more traditional physical pets. These do not only include the​ living-breathing pets such as​ dogs,​ cats,​ hamsters or​ the​ like,​ but also such possibilities as​ Furby,​ which is​ an​ electronic pet; the​ famous Pet Rock that was the​ craze in​ the​ 1970´s in​ US,​ an​ ant farm or​ the​ EcoSphere ball with its shrimp and bacteria.

Whatever pet a​ person chooses,​ they serve the​ same purpose. to​ perhaps aliviate lonliness,​ to​ instill responsability in​ the​ young ones,​ just for fun and amusement. All that is​ necessary is​ to​ choose the​ one that best fits an​ individuals personality and enjoy.
