Dealing with Multiplicity

by Jewel625

Hello! I'm Jewel625... and I am here to discuss a very touchy but greatly common section: How to deal with your everyday multiplicity! Or, in simpler terms, how to be fair with ALL your pets, how to survive financially, and how to get your pets to get along. But before we start, let me tell you that I have four pets of my own and I know what you're going through, no matter how many pets you do have. It's not as easy as dealing with one...when you have to deal with multiple matters. Well, here are the guidelines! I hope they help you...they did for me (thank goodness!).

1.) Still thinking about it? Take THIS into matter.
Pets are adorable, but they aren't easy. Yet still, you've got your mind set on another one...maybe even three or four! But please, before taking action, consider the consequences. They won't always get along. You'll have have to deal with an enormous amount of racket and pointless arguing. They'll get jealous on a daily basis and won't fail to point out, "his slushie has more peanut butter in it!". Also, there's no doubt that you'll slip into financial debt. You'll be knocked off your feet when you see the bill. And unless you've really hit it well with Nigel the Chia, you'll have a bit of a problem dealing with it. So unless you are one hundred percent willing to tackle every speck of responsibility, you're going to tackle this: reconsider.

2.) You've made your decision...BUT WHAT NEXT?
Unless you don't have any pets at the time, the next step of multiplicity is talking with the pet you have. Prepare him/her. Tell him what's coming. He will not be too happy, let me tell you that. But if you have your mind set...

3.) The Adoption Agency: NEXT STEP
Your heartbeat has be cranked up several notches. The only things that you can hear are your two little wonders bawling in the back seat: Your new Grundo and new Kiko. You wonder how your beautiful Uni at home will react. She's been sulking, but...you suddenly change your mind! About everything. Could you swerve around and drop them back...? NO! Absolutely NOT! Sorry, no can do! So before signing those adoption papers, make sure you won't have a change of heart.

4.) The FINANCIAL WARNING
What should you prepare for...financially? I won't lie to you, it's frustrating. But before you get yourself stuck in the middle of money nowhere, listen up. First of all, before bring the little ones home, stock up on food. No last-minute shopping. Nourishment is crucial to your NeoPet's growth and development. So get used to rising food bills and feed your pets. Buy toys...and make them equal! For instance, don't my a magic plushie for your Meerca but a Key Ring for your Bruce. Instead, by them both Fuzzles, or books, or Bouncy Balls. Also, bring home and extra surprise for your firstborn. He'll need a little cheering up :)

5.) Financial SURVIVAL
Please, let me put 'Financial Survival' in brief terms. Play these games at least once a day: Kiko Match, Meerca Chase, Techo Says, Treasure Hunt, Deckswabber, Tug-O-War, and Kacheek Seek. Try to stick to Puzzle Games and Action Games. No matter how 'fun' they are or how 'lucky' you'll be, Luck and Chance games bleed you dry of your Neopoints. So before taking a chance at gambling, make sure you are highly confident of your 'stash'---or Neopoints. Compete in every Lenny Conundrum, Caption Contest, and 'Better Than You' competitions. Also, take advantage of every Neopets NP Offer. It's that simple....so get booming!

6.) The Last Challenge
The last challenge also happens to be the hardest: playing fair with all four. All you have to do, though, is follow the first five guidelines: take things into matter, talk with your pet, know what you want, be ready to get financially fair, and know how survive. If you can do all these, your pets will connect and things will eventually piece together for you. So before you pull your hair out, learn the guidelines of multiplicity.
