Dealing with Multiplicity
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.
