Petpet Matching for the Permanently Indecisive



Have you ever looked at a pet, paired with their petpet, and thought "They're perfect together!" only to do it yourself and find that "perfect" match to grow stale in a short time, maybe it just didn't "work" with their character, or maybe you just flat out decided you didn't like it? Ladies and Gentleman, I am here to state loud and clear you are not alone.

Read on and hopefully I can lighten the load, since finding the perfect petpet should be fun not stressful!
