There’s a newsletter from the Pet Society Mayor about supporting the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) through Pet Society. If you’re not aware of how this works, if you head to the cash shop and buy any of the WWF items Playfish/EA will donate a percentage of your purchase towards the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). In the past it was a 10% donation of your purchases but since this is the season of giving, Playfish/EA will bump that up to a 25% donation of your purchases between November 30th till January 3rd. So purchase those WWF items at the cash shop to Support World Wild Life!!! You can learn more about them at www.worldwildlife.org

There are seven types of trees you can grow in Pet Society. To grow a tree purchase the tree seed at the Garden Shop and plant it in your garden. Read our post about Gardening Basics if you’re unfamiliar with gardening in Pet Society. It takes 72 hours for a tree to fully develop and just like vegetables and flowers they are also randomly produced. The great thing about trees in Pet Society is that they bear fruit. This homegrown fruit can be picked and eaten, sold, or used as bait for fishing. Homegrown fruit has a price value of 65-85 coins so it’s best to sell homegrown fruit rather than eat it. Each tree grows a limit of 3 fruit per tree, if 3 fruits have been produced and are hanging from the tree, the tree will not produce any additional fruit. So be sure to pick your tree of it’s fruit in order to enable it to grow more. Here are the seven trees and the fruit they produce.
Here’s a breakdown of the price and recycle points value of the homegrown fruit. The “Homegrown Cherry” and “Homegrown Cupcake” are considered rare fruits thus they have a higher price and recycle value.
|Homegrown Fruit||Price Value||Recycle Points Value|
|Homegrown Apple||65 Coins||392 Recycle Points|
|Homegrown Banana||65 Coins||392 Recycle Points|
|Homegrown Coconut||65 Coins||392 Recycle Points|
|Homegrown Orange||65 Coins||392 Recycle Points|
|Homegrown Shortcake||65 Coins||392 Recycle Points|
|Homegrown Cherry||85 Coins||512 Recycle Points|
|Homegrown Cupcake||85 Coins||512 Recycle Points|
Today it’s been announced that Playfish which is the company that owns Pet Society along with other social network games such as Restaraunt City, Country Story, Crazy Planets and more has just been acquired by Electronic Arts Inc. EA is a leading gaming software company that owns numerous popular games made for xbox, playstation, wii and other platforms. What does this mean for Pet Society? With any acquisition you should always expect changes which won’t happen overnight, so everyone has to be patient. I’m hoping this merger will allow PS to be fixed of glitches, hacking and cloning but to also expand the amount of servers hosting the game so the game will run a lot faster and smoother. EA is a multi-million dollar company, they could afford an extra server or a thousand. Will Pet Society become a paid subscription game? Will more items and features be added? Will this mean Pet Society will be available in Xbox? For now the answer is wait and see. Is this acquisition for the better or for the worse for Pet Society? What do you think?
There’s a new Nannybot in town and she’s here to feed, clean and play with your pet 24 hours a day. If you’re offline, she’ll make sure your pet is properly fed, cleaned and played with. When you’re online simply click on the Nannybot and she’ll automatically make sure your pet is fully taken care of. Nannybot is a machine however and does need a battery to work. You can purchase the Nannybot and a medium battery at the Gadget Store or Furniture store. The Nannybot costs 400 coins and the medium battery costs 5 Playfish Cash. The medium battery will keep Nannybot running for 3 days once activated, but Playfish has been nice enough to give every pet a free battery to get started. So if your pet is in need of a Nannybot, head over to the Furniture Store or Gadget Store to get one!
The trophy display bug has now been fixed. All you need to do in order to view the correct trophy score is to reload the game.
The issue with stickers dissapearing after approving them is also resolved. Unfortunately it is not possible to regain lost stickers at this time, my apologies.
The issue with the game not saving if you bought certain parts for your pet at the stylis is also saved. All you need to do is reload the game.
