So, I started playing pet sites in 2003-2004 and I found my first pet site that I’ve played on Virtual Pets Blog

After finding the first pet site that I’ve ever played, I found more pet games on Apex Web Gaming - Rankings - All Sites

How did you find the first pet site that you’ve ever played? Did a friend refer you or did you find the pet game on a gaming directory & google?

Also, do you remember when you started playing pet games?

Hmmm my very virst Vpet that wasnt Neopets was Wajas. I honestly dont remember what I did to find it b/c I was 11 years hold when I did LOL. I probably googled it. I know that I used Apex for upvoting Wajas way back when.

My brother told me about Neopets. My twin sister and I shared an account back in 2002, I believe? I moved on to a different pet site in 2006.

My first VPS was the classic Neopets, and I remember exactly how I found it. I searched "Create a Pet", which was, of course, how you make your Neopet. My intention, however, was to find flash games where you can mix and match a bunch of animal parts to "make your own animal".

But I ended up making a Neopets account, which is still there to this day. If you're curious, my username is "Scarsula", pronounced "scar-shoo-lah", which as a kid was a dragon character I made up lol.

Not sure how I found it, but Neopets was my start 19 years ago. Either Marapets or Teripets next, probably by friend suggestion in those aim or msn chats.

How old is your account on neopets now? Are you still actively playing neo?

Wow! That’s awesome. Congratulations! What are your thoughts on Neopets’ new mobile app?

For me I started Neopets September 13, 2002. My Scorchio is 6,932 days old and my Pteri is about the same age. My brother and I played it quite a bit we were younger. We kind of searched around the web for stuff to do on old dial up modems. Internet speed was not that great back then. It took a long time just to load the home page and some of the games. I got the Cheat Champion award.

That's going waaay back lol. I believe I saw an ad for Neopets on Pojo. I saw the ad a number of times before finally clicking on it, this was still back when Neopets had only just been recently released/opened. I did have an account which would have been almost as old as Neo itself (Kitty4k). Unfortunately, I hadn't logged in for a while, and when I returned it now requested my birthday me , (being a genius) had put in a random date when creating the account. I believe it had been the correct year...or one higher or lower... but I never did get back in. Eventually that account was purged. I think possibly the following account I created has been purged by now too
