site updates and such

guinea pig!

January 30th, 2009

the new pet is here, and it is a guinea pig!

did you know:

  • most guinea pigs have 14 toes: 4 on each front foot and 3 on each back foot.
  • guinea pigs are sometimes called cavies because their scientific name is Cavia porcellus.

please adopt one at the adoption page :)

another pet on the way

January 24th, 2009

hey everyone! despite the fact that i said it would probably be a long long time before there would be another pet, i’m actually working on another one that i hope i will have done by the end of next week.

here’s the hint: this animal has a total of 14 toes!

ferret!

January 17th, 2009

thanks everyone for being so patient. the new pet is ready and it is a ferret!

did you know that ferrets are still illegal in california? you can find out more about the plight of the california ferret owner at www.legalizeferrets.org.

i hope you like the new pet! thanks everyone for guessing :)

where is bunnyhero?

January 6th, 2009

i know it’s been waaaaay too long since there have been any new pets. and perhaps some of you have been wondering “where is bunnyhero?” so, i thought i’d write a little update of what i hope to do with bunnyhero labs…

first: i am close to finishing a new pet. i hope to have it ready within the next couple of weeks. i will give you a hint: this animal starts with the letter ‘F’. it should be pretty easy to guess, but i’m not going to tell you if you guess right or not :P i hope you will like it, in any case!

once the new pet is released, i want to add user accounts to bunnyhero labs, along with more pet customization. i want to make it easier to add custom backgrounds for your pets, as well as having more items for your pets. however, this might mean another long gap before you see another new pet, because i am the only one working on this site so adding major new features takes a long time.

after that, i have some other ideas for new pets and new features. i just hope i can get to them all. each pet is a lot of work to make.

i have left comments open for this post so you can leave feedback. please be polite :)

( oh, and happy new year! )

database errors

November 24th, 2008

hi, we had a hard drive failure and the site went down. it’s back up but unfortunately because of database corruption you may get errors trying to add your pet to facebook or bebo. i am trying to fix these bugs now. sorry about the inconvenience! and thank you for your patience.

baaa!

April 17th, 2008

yep…
sheep!

sorry about the downtime :(

March 9th, 2008

the site was slow and sometimes inaccessible for too many hours last night. sorry about that! should all be fine now.

and yes, i AM working on new pets. i know it’s been too long…

bunnyhero pets bebo app!

January 10th, 2008

the pets have been available on bebo for a while now as “widgets,” but now bunnyhero pets are available as an application on bebo’s new application platform!

what does this mean for bebo users? now when you adopt a pet on bebo, you will add the “bunnyhero pets” application. with the new application, you are able edit your pets after you’ve added them to your profile, like changing your pet’s name and colour. also, i hope to add more features in the future, like sending your pets to your friends, and using your bebo photos as backgrounds for your pets.
