4) Nine-tailed foxes

Physical Description: Fox-like creatures that are kitten sized and with a face resembling Alaskan Malamutes. Depending on their growth phase, they have up to nine tails and come in a range of (pure) colours

These cuties are popular with the ladies as they have a tendency for snuggling up against owners and especially enjoy being stroked on their lustrous tails. Unlike their namesake in Chinese myths, these creatures are common domesticated pets on their native planet and do not have any supernatural abilities. They are also vegetarians. They have much longer life spans compared to a human and this has given rise to a new trend of these creatures being passed down from mother to daughter as a keepsake.

5) Soft-shelled turtles

Physical Description: Identical to normal turtles in physiology except for their shells being somewhat soft, much like a soft-shell crab. Up to five years in age, young soft-shelled turtles are, however, completely indistinguishable from normal turtles, even to the hardness of the shells.

Every five years, soft-shelled turtles shed one layer of their shells and regrow one that is partially of the exact same colour and tone as the layer it just shed and partially of a random colour and tone. Unlike normal turtles, soft-shelled turtles have a much shorter life span. Usually, it is able to accompany a single owner for all of his/her life and then will be quite close to the end of its own natural life.

8) Whirling Cocktails

Physical Description: Spinning vortexes of viscous liquid

They range from being thumb-sized to being about half a human in height. Little maintenance is required for the Whirling Cocktails. There is no need to clean their droppings for they leave none. Their diets are also simple (any gas, liquid or oil would do). Despite their liquid form, the growth in Whirling Cocktails is not proportional to the volume of material fed to them. Also, besides a growth in volume, the Whirling Cocktails will change in colour, viscosity and spinning speed according to the material fed to them. They ‘eat’ only periodically (usually about once every 3 months). They will emit a clanging sound as if cutleries coming into contact with one another whenever they require feeding and purr with a light ‘ting’ sound once their appetites are sated. If they are fed material indigestible to them i.e. any solid materials, they will emit a thin wail and quickly spin away from such offending materials. Keep the Wailing Cocktails well out of reach from human toddlers, youngsters and other addled members of this particular species- while accidental ingestions of the Whirling Cocktails leave the creatures themselves unharmed, this will cause severe vomiting and diarrhea for the humans who swallowed them.

12) The Sharalacs

Physical Description: A bolt of fibre-like material, velvety to the touch



Popular with those required to make frequent inter-galactic travels, the Sharalacs are prized for both their high utility and low maintenance costs. These creatures are basically used as easy-to-carry (they can be rolled up just like a bolt of cloth without adverse effects to them) multi-dimensional storage devices with automatic sorting and instant recall features (that activate on telekinetic command). They do not feed on anything. Rather, they grow with their ‘usage’. The more and varied the content and the more frequent and complex the recall requests are, more of a stimuli if provided for these creatures’ growth. In particular, Sharalacs’ growth are characterised by them physically becoming thicker and taking on more characteristics of an intelligent being in their telepathic communications with their owners.

13) The Crystalings

Physical Description: Robotic creatures made of a crystalline material that range in outlook from common and mythical beasts to various humanoid forms to completely alien and indescribable forms. Sketch out your own Cytstaling if you are not happy with the existing range of variations and we will make a custom one just for you!

Ever since the compatibility issues between the Crystalings and the r-Butlers have been solved (so that the Crystalings have all of the functions of a r-Butler integrated in), the Crystalings have become the first pet choice among most humans. The Crystalings operate on solar power only and are extremely energy efficient. They are also pre-programmed to recharge automatically on sunny days whenever they operate on less than a ‘full battery’. The Crystalings are more durable to blunt force/pressure than normal robots of human made. However, certain ultrasonic frequencies are known to cause the Crystalings to shatter.

14) The Spiny Quilts

Physical Description: Creatures named for their wide rectangular multi-segmented bodies that are not only warm to the touch but also feels really smooth, like one is stroking a blanket made of down. The Spiny Quilts have a flat head that otherwise resembles a crocodile’s and a tail that contains a split down the middle and is rounded on the edges (much like a fish’s tail) but covered up with its shell.

A popular pet choice among families with young children, as Quilt youngsters have a habit of undertaking afternoon naps on a daily basis. Coupled with their size (they are about as long as a normal human child’s height and of sufficient width to double up as a ‘blanket’ for kids), they make perfect ‘napping’ companions for children. The Spiny Quilts can eat a mixed diet but usually prefer fish-meat or earthworms as their main food sources. 

 
P.S. The inspiration source for this: Gossamer’s uploaded pictures on what centipede people could look like plus I was in bed wrapped up in nice and warm blankets when this idea came into my head

1) Grilins

Physical Description: Something like a blue, 5-tailed squirrel with suckers on its toes instead of claws.

Grilins are docile, friendly and extremely sociable little critters. The perfect starter pet for many young children. They don't have claws, can barely bite, and like to snuggle. The only catch is their speed and extreme climbing ability -- these things can go straight up a sheer wall (thanks to those tiny suckers) and often escape their owners if they don't have their Pet Cube handy. For this reason, wild populations of Grilins are becoming established in metropolises around the galaxy. They may become as ubiquitous as the old-Earth pigeon, in time. Go to Comment

2) Scalecats

Physical Description: Warm-blooded feline-esque creatures the size of large dogs, with snake-skin scales instead of fur.

The perfect choice for a person with fur allergies, the scalecat's original name is unpronounceable to most humans (hence, the monicker). Scalecats are loyal, fierce guardians who have a problematic territorial streak. They don't like lots of physical activity, however, and can most commonly be found lounging on its owner's bed or couch, with a watchful eye on the door. Firm training is a must, due to their size. De-clawing is recommended for owners without natural armor. Go to Comment

Pretty much, yeah. Any tiny to medium sized critter, at least. Pet Cubes have to be locked down before they are sold, to prevent exactly that kind of abuse (If you can't tell, I'm shamelessly stealing the idea of a PokeBall, and seeing what it would look like in a more serious setting).

6) Bitti-flecks

Physical Description: A glowing, fish-like creature about the size of a human fingernail.

A popular choice due to its considerable intelligence and weak psychic abilities, bitti-flecks are kept in a clear, anaerobic, viscous fluid composed of organic and silicate matter. They do best in contained systems and require only occasional fluid-cycling, so bitti-fleck jewelry and other accessories are coming into vogue. Bitti-flecks project a soothing aura that many species find desirable. If kept in a tank with other bitti-flecks, they will put on fantastic pulsing light shows that often mimic symbols, logos or even words that they have recently seen (especially those on passing neon signs).

7) Lammaaaars (aka "Stickies")

Physical Description: Palm-length organisms that somewhat resemble a fuzzy cucumber, covered with hundreds of short, sticky tentacles.

Lammaaaars are most often found in spaceports or other locations with low gravity, conditions that are hard on many other pets. Their nickname arises from their tendency to . . . stick. To everything. They readily adhere to skin, walls, luggage, equipment and especially to other stickies. They are fairly easy to remove, but can be an annoyance to owners with fur or long hair. Stickies love vibration, and will emit a pleasant purring sound if jostled gently. Go to Comment

9) Guanarian Paradicite

Physical Description: A pale, foot-long worm-like creature.

Often prescribed as therapy for people with terminal depression or other mental issues, the "paradise parasite" provides constant, life-long companionship. Once embedded in the owner's body, it will attach itself to the spinal column and begin reading the host's thoughts and feelings. After a few weeks, it will have learned enough of its host's language that it will begin striking up mental conversations with him/her. Paradicites are curious, gentle, compassionate and genuinely concerned with the welfare of their hosts. Besides providing a lonely owner with someone to talk to, they can help regulate hormone flow throughout the host's body, often bringing a level of emotional stability that the owner has never experienced.

10) Reenian Singing Tones

Physical Description: A being composed of pure sound waves, manifesting as a never-ending tone.

NOT recommended for humans (or other species who occasionally desire silence from their pets). A singing tone is one of the most expressive and communicative pets an owner can wish for. It can modify its volume and frequency to slide up and down the scale, depending on its mood. Singing Tone enthusiasts often own two or three, and keep them in their own sound-proofed enclosure to provide the occasional evening's entertainment.  Feeding is simple -- just provide them with sound, preferably music (as from speakers or even windchimes) whenever their volume starts to dip below audible range.

15) Jumping Jades

Physical Description: A neon-blue plant with thick, fleshy leaves and woody stems. Sometimes sports small, spiky-petaled flowers in bright colors.

There's not much call for carnivorous, intelligent flora, but the Jumping Jade from Kylonara IV has attracted a small group of enthusiastic hobbyists. What sets it apart from most house plants is it's ability to drag itself -- pot and all -- across many surfaces using its "branches". In the wild, Jumping Jades form a tough root-ball that they drag along behind them in their quest for prey. While they cannot climb, they can "jump" a few feet across small ditches or up onto low ledges. Jumping Jades will not attack creatures larger than itself, and will keep a home free of smaller vermin -- just remember to trim it back every so often, and keep it away from other members of its species.

16) Cabbits

Physical Description: A cat-like creature with huge eyes and luxuriously long, fluffy ears (essentially this thing ).

Genetic engineering made many things possible, not the least of which previously failed mutations like the cabbit. The very best in gene manipulation, cabbits are sweet, docile, sociable and playful creatures. They can jump moderately high, and enjoy a vegetarian diet, and are usually declawed before sale to increase their retail value. Occasionally, PetDex will get a "bad" batch that are more temperamental and/or violent -- some extremely so (think Monty Python's white rabbit). Officially, these are destroyed before sale. Unofficially . . . they make great entries in underground creature arenas. Go to Comment
