    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!

    We're a Virtual Pets and Sim Games Community. We have a lot of Virtual Pet Sites Owners and Sim Games Owners that frequently visit, along with Artists, Writers and Programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our Artists sell art in our Art Marketplace and Programmers are allowed to sell scripts in the Programming Marketplace. We've been opened since 2011 and since then we've grown and expanded quite nicely. What are you waiting for, why don't you join today?

    Our List of Virtual Pet Sites has a lot of Sim Games listed as well. You are more than welcome to check out our directory of sites and find a new game to play. If you're still curious about a game to play, you can check out some of our Game Reviews and Interviews with Coders, Artists, Writers and Game Owners of the industry.

Kind of new! :)

    I was a member here years ago; had to leave for some crazy reasons.
    Since I've been gone, I've gotten married, moved to Texas from Cali, and am expecting my first baby. Lots of change!

    But, I've missed the petsite world, so I am back. ^_^ I've worked on petsite art a lot in the past. Now I've added plushie making to my list of abilities, and would love to see if I can combine the two!

    Anywho, my name is Claire and it's awesome to be back. :D

    Thank you! :) We won't know the gender for sure for about two weeks, but for a boy he would be Rory Tyler Sparkman, or for a girl Amelia Rose Sparkman! We're a little crazy about Doctor Who. :)

    Yep! At about 8 weeks, heard the heartbeat as well. We weren't even totally positive I was pregnant at that point, it was a wonderful surprise! I'm about 17 weeks now and way too excited about the next ultrasound :)

    Woot. I bet you and your partner are so excited. I remember I was, I went baby shopping in the 4th month and spent so much money, but it was all worth it! Ya, the signs can sometimes be "I have no idea". Do you have morning sickness yet?

    We are for sure! We have wanted a baby for a long while now. :) As for the morning sickness, thankfully it's finally ending! I had it horribly for the first trimester. It's what got me to test in the first place! Now all that I deal with is disliking certain smells or foods too much. Not fun at all!

    How many months are you now though? I know morning sickness sucks for a lot of woman. My ex had it for a few months. My girlfriend took a test the other day because she was feeling sick for a whole week, and the test was negative. Congratulations to you again though! Be sure to post some pics of the ultrasound picture[create a thread], we'd love to see it! There's a lot of parents here as well. =D

    I'm just now in my fourth month, and everyone can tell! Just out of nowhere this week, all kinds of strangers are asking me about my baby. It's pretty cute. :D And I will, hope to have a new one to show soon too!
