Abigail got a Neopet in her stocking for Christmas. For those who don't know, Neopets are little stuffed animals that you register on a website. Once registered you can treat your Neopet like a real live pet.
It gets hungry. It needs a place to stay. It likes fancy clothes and jewelry. At least it doesn't have a litter box.
You can also play games to earn Neopoints that you can redeem for Neofood and other Neoneeds.
Abigail is getting a little frustrated with me. She can't play the games because I'm always playing them.
Maybe I need my own Neopet.
