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

Thanks! I'd like to expand the Creature Dex to 30+ critters, so that I can add the 30 freetext to it at some point. 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

17) Tanguineesian Mircat

Physical Description: A tan, black, white, brown or gray moth with a bat's head, furry body and a curling prehensile tail. It's body is only 2-3 inches long, and it's tail is at least double that.

Not an ideal pet for owners who need a lot of personal space. Mircats always seem to be attached to something (preferably someone), their tails curling tightly around any offered perch. Once perched, it's often difficult to disentangle them -- their tails will writhe around your fingers & wrist, desperately seeking a new place to attach. They are also somewhat shy and will often hide in their owner's hair, tail curled firmly around an ear. For all the clingy-ness, however, mircats make excellent pets. They produce a pleasant thrumming sound when petted and are unlikely to fly away from their owners in public. In a familiar environment, however, mircat owners should have their Pet Cube ready to retrieve the critter when it shows the rare desire to explore; their fluttering flight makes them hard to catch.

18) Nano Mice

Physical Description: Itty, bitty, tiny little mice, each about the size of a marble. They come in all standard colors -- white, brown, chocolate and spotted -- with both plain and tufted tails.

For those with a miniatures fetish, or who have an extremely limited budget for pet food. Nano mice are usually sold by the handful, and will only live for a year or two. They require very little food, and their squeaks are almost inaudibly quiet to the human ear. Often sold as an alternative to fish, or other office pets. Nano mice are also a common gift on Easter, chicks being both noisier and uglier when full-grown. They are always sold sterilized.

19) Berrilian Boulders (aka "Pet Rocks")

Physical Description: Usually a small, smooth chunk of inky black stone, though some rarer varieties have striations and even embedded crystals. Can be small enough to put in one's pocket, or as large as a basketball, given its age at "harvest".

Berrilian Boulders are semi-intelligent beings, with surprisingly advanced senses. They can see ultraviolet light, hear into the super-sonic, and may even have mild psychic tendencies (though this is as yet unconfirmed). Unfortunately, they can't really do all that much with the information they receive, having no known means of locomotion. What they can do is sing, and occasionally vibrate. They emit mildly haunting melodies which change based on how they are feeling, their environment, and with the presence of others of their kind. When talking with a Berrilian Boulder one always gets the sense of being listened to, and the Boulder will often respond with a change of song.

20) Animators

Physical Description: A small, glowing worm about the size of a bullet, usually yellow (though every hue has been reported).

An Animator's body is weak and defenseless, and they are not kept in their "nascent" state for long. Instead, they are meant to be "imprinted" upon an object, often a child's toy. This is done by "feeding" the Animator into an opening (usually a mouth), and encouraging it verbally and mentally to accept the body as its own. If the body is compatible, the Animator will claim it. It will send out tendrils and special feelers that allow it to move the toy around, and receive a limited amount of sensory input from its surroundings (the toy's eyes will usually start to glow, once visual input is being received). The process may take several days.

Afterwards, the toy can be treated as a cherished pet. It will learn to talk, walk, and play as it is interacted with. Animators can live a shockingly long time, though severe trauma to the host body (especially burning) can kill it. When an old "body" breaks down, it can be repaired, or a new host found. Beware an injured Animator with no acceptable host on hand, though. PetDex is not responsible for any "possessions" resulting from neglect or abuse. Go to Comment

21) Skippits

Physical Description: A palm-sized furry insect-like creature with twelve legs, four wings, and three googly eyes. Males are poison purple, females electric green.

A skippits can hover like a drone for several minutes, but they weren't really built for flight speed. Instead, they can climb straight up a wall in seconds, and love to "nest" in the corners of a ceiling. Despite their vaguely arachnid appearance, skippits can't spin webs, and do not dine on insects. They will, however, filch bits of fluff and various shiny oddments to build their "nests". Skippits are non-venomous, curious, and generally playful, but watch out for loud-clicking and territorial behavior during the mating season (about once every two years). Their favorite foods are nuts and flowers. Go to Comment
