Here goes (Btw its a poem) Enjoy :)

Pets bring love to the Hotel,
The attitude they give us we can always tell,
Do they think they're in heaven, or in hell?
Well that depends if you treat them well.

Those we adore, our pixelated pets,
Who are with us in morning until sun set,
But the Sulake team got together and met,
And said "Should we bring out a new rare kind to collect?"

They could be your buddy or a right old pain,
They could get you riches or bring you to fame,
They could be smart, or they could be vain,
Or if your unlucky they could bring you to shame.

So is the idea good or is it mad?
I never could think that pets are bad,
So I think the ideas good so don't be sad,
Actually I think its the best idea habbo's ever had!

Thanks Habbox For Your Time Most Appriciated :)

It would be a good thing if Sulake created some Rare Pets for Habbo as it will be quite exciting when someone spots one. I also believe that they should bring out rare pets and use them as HC Gifts as there hasn't been any new rares for HC in quite a while.

i think rare pets will only be there to look good and simce you cannot tradethem then they are useless. Sure, they will make ppl jealous but you could also make alot of money from it by selling it on ebay. With a rare pet you will alos need rare pet food beacause a snake will not eat bones or cabbage will it? a whole new range of toys and waterbowls will then be available so it is not possible to have a rare pet beacause then the pet food will be sold and not the pet. this would not make any sense.

I think It's a great idea. Rare pets are good because It gives Habbo some change, and they wont get bored. Since It's new, alot of people will wanna try it. You could also try to make some new water bowls etc.

Maybe the new pet will be a horse! x]

I think it would be a great idea to have rare pets. I mean, if you have a lot of
credits, what better way to spend them than to buy the most adored pet around, instead of a maggot-y old mutt? You could show even more that you are a "rich" Habbo, and how much you just love your pet. If you had a rare pet, people could admire it instead of going "It's just the same as everyone elses." Rare pets would be a great addition to Habbo Hotel! :eusa_danc

I love pets, i have a dog myself, so i think that rare pets would be a great addition to habbo hotel.
I mean, you can absolutely adore that hc sofa, but sooner or later you'll trade it for something better, or you wil be hacked and lose it, so why obsess about a sofa?
A pet is something you can love and cherish and it'll do the same back!
Normal pets cannot be traded or stolen, and this will obviously be the same for rare pets. So even if you do get scammed out of loads of furni and now you are poor, at least you have a rare animal that will show you love, comfort and affection, and it will prove your not poor as you can afford this great new rare pet!

Pets are fun, funny and funky! they are great!
But rare pets would be even funner, funnier funkier and greater!
Norm pets already bring a sense of warmth to the room, so think what a rare pet would do???

Pets are now, Rare pets are the future!

I hate to see pet scams.
" Give me an HC for a pet. "
It's just as bad as credits for rares, lots of people get scammed out of their furni thinking they will get a new pet.

A rare pet will just encourage this type of scam, and more.
Just make a new darn pet, if it's a guinea pig or hamster, just make it 25 credits. And if they do release them, make sure that you can only buy them for yourself, sulake. <3

I think that rare pets are a good idea but should only be around each year on Pet Week. It is a hard one to call as many people hate pets while lots of people coulnd't survive habbo without them. Rare pets would have to be something different than a cat or a dog and not just a new breed as they should be easily recognizable as 'rare'. It is a good idea as habbo is in desperate need of some variety now that it doesn't seem to be releasing any new HC rares or normal rares (with the exception of the DJ Decks). So bring rare pets in but only on Pet Week, and it would be better to not let them be bought as gifts to prevent scamming.

Having rare pets is a very good argument to debate on. There are several reasons why this is a good idea, and several why it's bad. First of all it would be good because it would make a wonderful addition to the hotel. They would be something to work hard for, and have fun with! Well..thats what most people think, but I, however don't really like this idea. First of all, what good is it having a rare pet if you can't even trade it. Most people trade rares for norms but if you can't trade it it's not really a good rare. Also if it's a rare, you would obviosuly spend lots on it, while meanwhile you have to keep spending more and more for food. Say the "rare pet" was in the catalouge. Say you have 50 credits. Say the petal patch was still in the catalouge. You could buy either the rare pet and a petal, or 2 petals. If you think about it getting 2 petals would be a better deal. I mean you can actually trade them and the rare pet wouldnt be much different then a regular one, with buying food for it and playing with it. Some people may think rare pets are cool, but this is how I feel.

09-03-2005, 12:06 AM
I think this is a bad idea because if some pets become rare wouldnt they disapear from the catalog after a while. If some people also want a rare pet but have no credits there's nothing they can do. Afterall, you cant trade pets. What will be the difference in a rare pet anyway??

09-03-2005, 03:56 AM
Personaly, I think it's a bad idea. Pets are pets and they don't need to be humiliated by being turned into a rare. They are sweet, cuddly and sweet and we should leave it like that, not going changing theres looks and turning then into something that they most likely wont want to be. :@

09-03-2005, 09:45 PM
:werock: buddy..2

I think it is a bad idea because your only allowed two pets in each room.
We should keep normal pets because habbos could forget about there funny,sweet and cool pet(s) and focus on Rare pets.
Forgetting about your pet is like animal cruelty, pets are they best thing on habbo i reckon.

Just if i win>>>>>>>>>>>> :eusa_danc


Habbox rocks my socks

This compo ends on 25th March! I will be 13 finally! Hope i win as a B'day present :eusa_pray

I think pets as rares is a great idea. Many argue they arent rare if you cant trade, but I disaree. What is the point of rares? Popularity, power, and impressing people. Whats wrong with that and pets? I would be impressed by anyone who had something in their room that wasent in the catolouge! Since most people dont trade their rares for more, but less rare rares, I think it would be just as good. Also, how could it possibly hurt the hotel? It would make more furni, more interesting, and when the rare pets are for sale in the catolouge (If they go out like that), sales will go up a lot for the hotel!

It's very debatable if rare pets are a good or bad idea, I think personally bad, because 1st, we have rares to trade for more rares and to flash. But you can't trade pets but you can flash them. They kind of cancel each other out. But it would still be nice to have them.

habbo enery for compition about should we bring out rare pets?
I think it that we shouldnt have rare pets because all the habbos will buy the the rare dogs and forget about our dogs we have now because habbo dogs have been on habbo for a long time and they have been popurlar with the habbos but when the rare pets come out everyone will forget about them and they will just buy the rare pets. I think that it should stay the same because i see how it will make a differnt i think the pets we have now is much better then rare pets and i love them the way they are and i hope that people will see my point of view.and i dont really see the point because you cant trade them and ppl would want the rare pets and they would want to show off with them so i would keep with the pets we have now thank you.
i hope you understand my point of view xxxx

[B] Discrepancy

I don't think it is a good idea to have rare pets. People LOVE to trade rare things, but you cannot trade pets. More people would want pets, and want to trade. People would probably fall for pet scams more often. Me personally, I know I would because I would be so tempted to have a rare pet, because that would be awesome. So in a way I like it, then again in some ways its a bad idea.

My entry about pet rares:
We dont need pet rares,because pet is just pet.One little and kind cat/dog who will make u smile.We dont need no more rares.Specially about pets.Pets are just little virtual animals,who will make those people happy,who dont have any kind of pet in real life.
So...This will be something non-rare thing.

It may be a little far-fetched but it will happen!!!

Should we have rare pets? In my opinion, no. Rare pets would have to be even more expensive to distinguish them from the other “normal pets.” They would also need original accessories and food that are just for them. These too, as they are “rare” pet food, would need to cost more. Then what would happen to all the Habbo cats and dogs, they would be abandoned and starving because their owner got a new rabbit or snake. The Habbo RSPCA would have to work non-stop to try and rescue all the mistreated Habbo pets. This would result on them going on strike and then the Habbo Council would have to meet and decide that all the little cats and dogs would have to be put down which would mean the closing of Habbo Hotel for several days while Callie, GlitterKat and the rest of the office staff try to capture all the pets. For the above reasons I have decided that, in my opinion, rare pets are not a good idea.

I Think Having a Dog & Cat Is Really Amazing. I Thought About Them When they were Created It Was A Joy Thinking That People Will Have A Furry Friend Right In There Room! Its a Really Great Thing That Dogs & Cats Are Wonderful Creatures For Everyone To Enjoy! Well Thanks For Listening! Good Luck To Everyone! I Think Normal Pets Are Enough Because If People Buy Rare Pets, They Will Forget Their Old Friends And Leave Them There To Die.

Thank You!
