Please read all the rules carefully and follow instructions accordingly.

Failure to follow these simple instructions
will result in no Giffie-Pet for you :(


   In order to have a pet you must be given one, as they appear in your treasury. These are NOT free gifs to be put up in your bio, photo slots or wiki pages, and any that are seen will be removed by the Guards.

   You may not make banners containing any of the original giffie-pets or alter them in any way without permission from [Bookwyrm]. All work is copyright to the Giffie Artists and is only for use in Elfpack.

   If you have any problems or concerns about pet thieves, or any other violations please report them to the Guards using the button in the member's house, or contact [Bookwyrm] directly.


   Making your choice is an important part of owning a giffie, as you are only allowed one pet to begin with! You may extend your giffie-pet family with Giffie-Pet Slots (max limit of five {5} pets total). See #Extra Info for more info about these. Feel free to browse the Giffie-Pet Store until you find a giffie you like the look of, then follow the procedure so you can take the pet home with you.

   If you want to give a second chance to an abandoned pet, look in the Giffie-Pet Pound. The pets here are ones that have been dropped off by their previous owner, and are looking for a new home. Please note that pounded pets already have a name, and cannot be renamed unless you have won or purchased a Giffie Rename Token. For more about these tokens, see #Extra Info.

   If you want a specific type, take a look in the Normal Pet Storehouse as these are all the types we sometimes get in the store. Then keep a lookout on the Store and the Pound for your desired pet. Please choose wisely, If you don't see a pet up in the store that really catches your eye, wait to see what else comes in stock! Don't fill up the Giffie-Pet Pound while you are trying to decide.

   There are some very special pets you may have seen around. They are the Unique Giffie-Pets, and also rare Exotics... but they are limited and need a special ticket to be bought!

   Once you have chosen and you have followed the rules for requesting the pet, it will be delivered to you as soon as possible. Please do not harass the pet store workers!



<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> To reserve your pet simply message [The Giffie Fairy] with your request, telling it which pet you want and the desired name for the pet.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> Do not request a pet that isn't in the store.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> The store will restock occasionally, and new animal species may be added at any time. If there are no pets in-store it means we are due for a restock, but please be patient while this happens.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> Do not exceed the max stock of the pet (if it says 10 in stock and 10 names are already in line you will have to chose a different pet or wait until that pet comes back into stock).



<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> To reserve your pet simply add your user name where it says "Adopt Me:" Try reading the Wiki Help pages if you're new to editing wikis.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> Pound Giffie-Pets will already have a previous name so you cannot give them a new name unless you have a Giffie Rename Token.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> Do not offer (or attempt) to adopt a pet that has already been reserved. If someone else's name is next to a pet, the pet has been claimed. Deleting their name and replacing it with your own will only hurt your chances of owning a giffie-pet in the future.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> Please do not offer (or attempt) to adopt a pet if you already have a giffie-pet and do not have another pet slot. We do keep track of these things. ;)

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> If you have a pet already, you can not request a new one until your current one is out of your house. To do this, you must drop your current pet off at the Giffie-Pet Pound.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> Please be patient and wait for your pet to arrive. We'll get them to you as quickly as possible. :)

     Dropping Off:

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> The pound is first come, first served, as mentioned above. If you drop off a pet it is fair game for another user to adopt. Do not drop off a pet you may want back!

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> If you drop off a pet at the pound you must wait a period of one month before dropping off another pet. This is to prevent abuse of the restock/pound system.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> Add your username to the Giffie-Pet Pound "Drop Offs" list if you wish to disown your pet. Try reading the Wiki Help pages if you're new to editing wikis.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> Always add your name to the end of the list, follow the numbered format and keep the page neat.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1312066661.png> Please do not harass the Giffie-Pound workers about when your pet will be picked up. They will rescue it as soon as they can!


   Most importantly, be sure to look after your pet. Feed them and play with them as much as they need and you'll have one happy giffie in your house!

   Please Note: To feed and play with your pet, you just need your imagination. ;) Logging into Elfpack often should be sufficient to stop the pet from leaving you. At present, your pet will not actually leave you.

   If you feel you no longer want your adopted pet, go to the Giffie-Pet Pound and do your part in rehoming the unhappy pet!


   The Giffie-Pet Store is undergoing a few changes, so please keep this wiki on watch while things get updated. This section should inform you of any changes that do not directly relate to the subjects above!

Please note that any "Giffie Product" you obtain can be given to a friend at your request, simply send a message to [Bookwyrm] asking your product to be transferred to your friend.

2005-10-24 [Natasha17]: exactly how do u get one?

2005-10-25 [ShadowSong]: READ.. it says right up there how... follow the directions..

2005-10-25 [Syn Serafim]: well wait if you have to be given a pet... how does that go about?

2005-10-27 [ShadowSong]: follow the directions.. dont worry about how it gets to you.. the pet staff will get it for you stupid....

2005-10-28 [Syn Serafim]: stupid? Let us try to understand englsih you brainless twit I asked as how do you go about getting one. I read the directions above it tells you how you cannot get one and ways not to use them or copywrite them it NEVER tells you how to go about obtaining one... SO STUPID I will ask my question again how do you go about getting one?!?

2005-10-28 [***faceparty***]: like how do u get 1 u dont exacily tell us how 2!!!!

2005-10-28 [Pua]: when they restock the store house with new pets you go to edit page an put your name an the name of your pet under the giffie of your choice provided that there is a space you honestly dont have to be rude  but you are right they should put how to obtain one in the rules

2005-10-29 [Syn Serafim]: ty... But wait doesn't it say in the rules you must be given one... by putting your name under a pet that's kinda like asking for one isn't it...? So in the rules why doens't it say just put your name under the pet you want...? that'd make it easier....

2005-10-30 [Pua]: idk thats wat i did in the past an it worked for me  it would make it easier but if you think about all the stuff that the staff has to put up with i dont blame them for putting up the rules of wat you shouldnt do  but i guess in the mix of all that they forgot to put up how to get one exactly  although to fully understand you can also ask the staff themselves its their job to help an answer questions

2005-10-31 [ShadowSong]: ok.. at the top of the page it tells you how to reserve a pet... IT DOES... I PROMISE.. anyway.. that's all you have to do... reserve it.. then forget about it.. and one day your pet will arive at your house

2005-10-31 [Pua]: ok  so there you go

2005-11-01 [Syn Serafim]: ty

2005-11-01 [Pua]: anytime

2005-11-01 [exstacy101]: can I have a pet lion?

2005-11-01 [*~*Kimmie*~*]: well i understand it now so wtf ever

2005-11-02 [Big Brother]: well unless you want me to give you the worst pet there is and name it something retarded i suggest you do what everyone else does to get one.

2005-11-06 [Natasha17]: y can't they just make it easy to do??

2005-11-06 [Pua]: cuz its no fun taking the easy way out of things

2005-11-08 [Big Brother]: easier!!! it's as easy as it can get!! pick a pet from the store and add your name and the pets name!!! it's not difficult

2005-11-08 [Pua]: *shrugs*  tell that to the ppl who choose not to read

2005-11-08 [Big Brother]: i think i just tried....but seeing as the only way to know anything on a site is to read.........

2005-11-18 [x-x-bby-soph-x-x]: i wnt a pet

2005-11-18 [*~*Kimmie*~*]: well thats you [Big Brother] ,but there is others who do!!

2005-11-19 [Big Brother]: i don't.........

2005-11-23 [snow bunny]: i give up there is no way to get one that i can see.. all it tell u about is how you can lose one and copy right crap!! i don't care abou that stuff.. how do i get one. less people will steal them if you just make it easy to get!! srry but what a stupid thing... so even tho i have read a ton i will not be getting one because of a lack of accessibility!!

2005-11-24 [*~*Kimmie*~*]: if they want to give us one then they will other than that they won't!

2005-11-30 [shay shay]: shayna

2006-03-23 [zoloftzantac]: You are going to have to read to get a pet. Someone asked the exact same question in the post 2 above yours. Please read my answer, it's directly above your question.

2006-05-10 [xo-ash-ox]: Em eww

2006-05-10 [zoloftzantac]: yes?

2006-05-19 [Supernova.]: the pound is a very good place:)

2006-05-20 [zoloftzantac]: hooray for happy sadie the salmon! ^__^

2006-06-01 [BULLDOGDUDE]: how do iget a pet, i have read the instructions but i dont get it

2006-06-02 [kittykittykitty]: I really don't see a problem with the rules, or where any confusion may have arisen. Did you read this page?

2006-06-20 [ShadowSong]: you go to the page... and you read those directions... and if you have any brains.. you should be able to figure it out... geeze.. in all the time i have been gone... we still get these stupid questions...

2006-07-02 [x-bbykate-x]: i want a pet

2006-07-02 [kittykittykitty]: Sooooo decide whether you want it from the giffie-pet store or the giffie-pet pound and follow the procedure :)

2006-07-09 [SuperStar66]: i dont know how 2 get a pet can someone tell me how?

2006-07-09 [Big Brother]: it's all on this page, just read.

2006-07-13 [life without you - mmm - how cool!]: can i jus say a big thank you to [Big Brother] for giving me a pet!!!

2006-07-13 [Big Brother]: i just put you on the page like requested, i didn't give it to you. thank the delivery staff for that.

2006-08-04 [kittykittykitty]: These rules definitely need to be shorter :O It hard to know which parts people will actually read and which parts are understood without needing to be said

2006-08-05 [Big Brother]: then fix it =P

2006-08-05 [kittykittykitty]: Yeah but I'm tired XD Don't worry... for some reason I really enjoy fixing that sort of stuff so I'll get to it eventually if nobody else does :D

2006-08-05 [Big Brother]: i'm sure noone will.....

2006-08-05 [Bookwyrm]: :P I would, but they look fine to me...XD So I wouldn't know what to change.

2006-08-05 [kittykittykitty]: Less text, fewer bulletpoints and needs to be more concise :) That's all it needs

2006-08-05 [Bookwyrm]: Have fun with that. :P

2006-08-05 [Bookwyrm]: I do simple "grunt-work". :P

2006-08-22 [kittykittykitty]: Better? :)

2006-08-22 [Bookwyrm]: I like it! ^____^ Good job!

2006-08-22 [kittykittykitty]: Thanks ^___^ I hope it makes them easier to understand now. #Choosing your Pet definitely needed to be refined because that is what a lot of the questions from members are asking about...

2006-08-24 [kittykittykitty]: Are requests supposed to be sent to you now Mothyr? I'll correct that on this page :)

2006-08-24 [Bookwyrm]: Oh yes. ^___^ I forgot about that.

2006-08-25 [kittykittykitty]: I didn't notice until today that the requests were going to you instead of Jon, so I don't know how long it was like that for :P I hope he still wasn't getting store-spam messages :D *kitty got one of those today*

2006-08-25 [Bookwyrm]: I'm not sure how long I've been doing requests. o.O Not too long I imagine. Sorry about the spam -.-

2006-08-25 [kittykittykitty]: It's all good ^_^ I don't mind spam as long as that person didn't send a message to all the staff... I don't know why he thought I was the authority on these things XD

2006-08-25 [Bookwyrm]: Probably 'cause you do a lot of work in the store. ^^

2006-08-26 [zoloftzantac]: Maybe it was just an excuse to message one of the lovely giffie gals *notices all of the giffie gals are cute and looks at [Big Brother]*

2006-08-26 [Firenze]: What do you expect [zoloftzantac], [Big Brother] is a girl magnet ^_-

2006-08-26 [Bookwyrm]: I was thinking the giffies are girl magnets, but I guess Jon is too...;D

2006-08-26 [Firenze]: lol, nah Jon is the magnet, being the boss of the giffies is just a bonus ^_-

2006-08-26 [Big Brother]: why do you think i do it? it's all bout the cute girls!

2006-09-19 [SONDAJ]: i want a unique pet for my self :):)

2006-09-19 [Bookwyrm]: Well you'll have to win a unique pet ticket. ^^

2006-10-06 [Mental Terrorist]: Okay, i seriously dont undersatnd how to feed and play with my pet...please dont laugh

2006-10-07 [Bookwyrm]: You don't. It's a roleplay thing.

2006-10-07 [Mental Terrorist]: okay, i was worried about loosing my pet

2006-10-07 [Bookwyrm]: No, you lose your pet if you are go for 50+ days without logging in. To prevent that we have the Giffie-Pet Kennel.

2006-10-08 [Andy8178]: lol, I'm glad [Mental Terrorist] asked that question, because I didn't know either ^_^

2006-10-08 [Mental Terrorist]: lol!

2006-10-29 [Shayna Zeiter]: can i have pet

2006-10-29 [zoloftzantac]: Please read this page, it gives links and info on how to get a pet, we can't explain it to every single person so you'll need to read.

2006-10-29 [Bookwyrm]: Oh know people on the internet can't read. How dare you imply such a thing?!

2006-10-29 [zoloftzantac]: heh, I just believe that the kids on this site would do well to learn just a bit about the real world and how it works. People need to be able to read, understand and follow simple directions or they will get no where in life. :p

2006-10-29 [Bookwyrm]: Oh I agree completely. ;D But I mean...isn't the internet a place to escape all that "reading" stuff you have to do in the real world? I mean that's the only way to communicate in reality, so the internet is an escape from all those difficult words and letters you have to decipher to get anything done in real life. ;D

2006-10-29 [zoloftzantac]: OMG!!!RE DING IS HARD1!!1!! >.< ::) LOL!!!!

2006-10-29 [Bookwyrm]: ::stares::... ... ...::blinks::... ... ...::attempts to not die from laughter::

2006-11-26 [fuck shit up]: how do u feed ur pet? lol

2006-11-26 [Big Brother]: it depends on what you have, i use a piece of meat on a long stick for my pet.

you have a fox so i would toss eggs and such at it.

2006-11-27 [zoloftzantac]: I just sprinkle freeze dryed tofu crumbs on top of the water and my giffie-pet fish eats them :)

2006-12-14 [MadHatress]: lol...

2007-01-03 [zoloftzantac]: heh, fish are easy to care for ;)

2007-01-20 [kittykittykitty]: As are snails :3 Just some vegetables and ice cubes and Squidgie stays pretty happy ^_^

2007-02-18 [little_boy]: hey i want to get a pet the Cockatiel

2007-07-02 [LETS PARTY]: how do u get a pet im so lost

2007-07-03 [Bookwyrm]: I responded to your message in the forums. ^_^ Please check there.

2007-08-04 [Hereby Deleted]: thankyou for my pet.. i thought he deserved a nice home were he will get lots of tender loving care.

2007-08-06 [Bookwyrm]: You're welcome. ^^

2007-08-26 [$cutie kim$]: mothyr witch how do we feed our pets im confused

2007-08-26 [Bookwyrm]: I responded to the message you sent me. ^_^

2007-09-14 [zoloftzantac]: How do people manage to read that far down the page, and then not read the very next line ... ?

2007-09-14 [Bookwyrm]: Because they've already read too much. :P Apparently.

2007-10-09 [zelvrlilly2525]: thank you very much for my kitty are we aloud to have more than one pet?

2007-10-09 [Bookwyrm]: You're welcome. ^_^ And no, you're only allowed one pet. You wouldn't want your kitty to get jealous, would you? ^_~

2007-12-11 [-------]: In the procdeure section, the 4th bullet says "Do not offer to adopt a pet has already been taken." Should there be a "that" after "pet"?

2007-12-11 [Bookwyrm]: Fixed! Thank you. :)

2008-12-05 [iN lOvE]: how do you feed your pet?

2008-12-06 [Bookwyrm]: All you have to do is make sure you log in every day. ^_^ If you're going to be away for more than 50 days, make sure to put your pet in the Giffie-Pet Kennel or it may run away!

2008-12-06 [iN lOvE]: so just logging in does it all?

2008-12-06 [Bookwyrm]: Yes. ^_^

2008-12-07 [iN lOvE]: awesome :)

2010-08-07 [FireFighter]: i want an River Otter. Anyway i can get one?

2011-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: PAGE REDONE. /pant

2011-10-14 [Bookwyrm]: Still working on the rewrite.

2011-10-22 [Bookwyrm]: Updated. Some things will have to be updated/fixed later, but for the most part I think it's good. Any opinions? :P

2011-10-22 [Stephen]: It looks awesome.

Maybe a token to have the little default blurb of text in your treasury slot changed? Kind of like how [kittykittykitty], yourself and I all have special text in our slots.

2011-10-22 [Bookwyrm]: That's an awesome idea.


2011-10-22 [Stephen]: W00t. :3

Although, that should have some word-limit on it, or we'll end up with members' requesting a paragraph there. x)

2011-10-22 [Bookwyrm]: Yes, of course. :D

2011-10-22 [Stephen]: xD

2011-10-22 [Stephen]: You could probably also make a small tog-fee (say like 3?), that lets you choose any normal pet from the store as a pet, instead of waiting for it to be stocked.

Or you could make it so very few pets are stocked, and make it so pets'll be more "elite" and thus people'd be more likely to spend some togs to get them. xP

2011-10-22 [Bookwyrm]: Also a good plan in theory. I'll ponder on that a bit. :D

2011-10-22 [Bookwyrm]: Does the special blurb token sound all right? Twenty words doesn't seem like much, but mine is 14 as it is without my pet's names and species included. Maybe I should make it 25? I don't want to make it too much or too little.

2011-10-22 [Stephen]: It sounds good to me. 20 is a good amount. Maybe if someone had like, 5 pets an exception could be made for a longer blurb, but I don't see any reason past that really.

2011-10-22 [Bookwyrm]: Yeah more pets should give a longer blurb. Might add something bout that later.

2011-10-22 [Stephen]: :D

2011-10-22 [Bookwyrm]: I changed the limit to fifteen for a single pet, with an additional five words per pet for a total of thirty-five if you have the max of five pets. That sound good?

2011-10-22 [Stephen]: Yeah, it sounds good to me. *nod*

I added "S"'s, so it goes in line with the plurals above. :3

2011-10-22 [Bookwyrm]: Thank you. >.<

Also, should I move all that to the Help page?

2011-10-23 [Stephen]: Hm, that's hard to say. It's technically part of both. I think it's OK here, and how you mentioned them on the help page. :)

2011-10-23 [Bookwyrm]: Cool, I hoped that would be functional.
