how do i copy and paste into my website?
  1. make your pet and click finish
  2. click the "copy code" button
  3. go to your site, journal, etc. usually they will have a place to paste html. right click your mouse, and select "paste" from the menu. if you are posting into a journal, usually pasting the code into the same place you type messages works. if you are putting the pets on a website, the code will go in between the <body> and </body> tags. if your website uses a template and you do not actually program it, but simply type things in, you should be able to paste it there.

general

what's this about?
it's all about adopting animated, interactive critters to live on your web page!
what do i need to adopt a pet?
you need:
how many pets can i adopt?
you can adopt as many as you like!
i don't have a web page. how do i visit my pet?
if you don't have a web page to put your pet, you will need to bookmark the page with your pet on it.
i lost my pet! how do i find it!
if you cannot find your pet, i can try to help you find it: contact me and make sure you tell me your pet's name, what kind of animal it is, and the adopter name you used. or, you could just adopt a new one!
do i need to log in to see my pet?
unlike some other pet sites, there is no log on to see your pets. you have to bookmark the page with your pet on it. see the question i don't have a web page. how do i visit my pet?
how do i delete my pet from my web page?
to remove your pet from your web page, simply delete the code you originally pasted into the HTML. note that some web sites make it difficult to edit the HTML directly. if you are having trouble, please contact me and tell me the web address of your web page, and i will try to help!
what's HTML?
if you need help with the basics, please visit lissa explains. it's a great website for learning HTML and how to make your own web page.
my pet doesn't show up in my livejournal/deadjournal entry! why not?
livejournal/deadjournal/etc entries cannot have flash movies embedded in them. make sure you use the livejournal-friendly code instead, which uses an image instead of flash. the image becomes a link to a page where you can interact with the flash version.

note that you should not have any problems embedding your pet into a blog entry if you are using software like movable type or wordpress.
if i have more than one pet, can i place them side-by-side instead of one above the other?
yes, it is possible to have two pets side-by-side. try the following code:

<table><tr><td>
  **paste code for pet 1 here**
</td><td>
  **paste code for pet 2 here**
</td></tr></table>
if i have more than one pet, can i put them all into the same box so they can play together?
unfortunately it is not possible for more than one pet to be in the same box. sorry about that!

pet care

do i need to feed or groom my pet?
no, you do not need to feed or groom your pet. they will not starve, get sick or die. these pets are just for sitting on your web page! they're very low maintenance :)
my dog won't eat the treats!
click on the doggy treat box, then click somewhere above his head (it won't work if you click right on his head, it has to be in the empty space above). he will jump up to eat it.
my bunny won't eat the carrot!
move the carrot so that the tip of the carrot is on the bunny's head. then click.
how do i get food or toys for my pet?
unfortunately not all of the pets have food or toys. i hope to add food and toys to all of the pets eventually! when that happens, your pets will be upgraded automatically.

other

how can i adopt a lightbulb?
