White Weewoos: The Ideal Petpet

by bha288


Also by drobit

There are hundreds of petpets out there in Neopia, all perfectly worthy of being your beloved Neopet's new petpet. But how do you go about choosing the right one for your pet? Well, that's where we come in. After careful contemplation, we are here today to put forth the highly controversial idea that the ideal petpet for all of the pets in Neopia is the one, the only White Weewoo. And by the time you've finished this article, we're sure you'll agree that the White Weewoo is the best petpet out thereā€”or your money back! After all, these adorable little creatures are the official mascot of the Neopian Times, and quite possibly, the future of Neopia.

Let's start with the fact that the White Weewoo is the perfect mascot for this illustrious newspaper. Aesthetically speaking, they are ideal newspaper mascots. In fact, you couldn't find a better match if you started using a newspaper as a mascot! As such, investing in one of these petpets would be an excellent way to show your appreciation for the Neopian Times. Although they are slightly more expensive than your average petpet, they are still relatively affordable, especially in comparison to some of the more extravagant petpets on the site. That's right; we're looking at you, Stealthy Candychan.

Leaving aside the superficial, White Weewoos are particularly suited for newspaper office environments because they are low maintenance petpets. They will never demand too much of your pet's attention, nor distract from your writing. For example, we guarantee that you will never have to mop up after them, which is not something that can be said for the petpets of mad old Mrs. Williams' awful Petpetsitter neohome. This is because White Weewoos pride themselves on their cleanliness. Petpets like Noils, on the other hand, do not.

Similarly, a major advantage of having a feathered petpet is that you will never need to worry about shedding. In other words, you won't have to fret about Weewoo fur clinging to the contents of your wardrobe. Although they do molt occasionally, feathers are much easier to clean up after than fur. Additionally, you can use their feathers to make quills! Quills are wonderful if you want to project the illusion of being an intellectual, or if you want to pay homage to the Neopian Times.

Another benefit of having a low maintenance White Weewoo is that you will never have to hunt for a Happy Anniversary Negg to sate their appetites; they would be satisfied with any of your basic canned Petpet Foods. This certainly would not be the case if you owned a Kadoatie. Who can afford all of those Kadoatie Biscuits anyway?

Another (increasingly problematic) issue with Kadoaties is their persistent, unreasonable fear of the dark. If you have ever had the misfortune of visiting the Kadoatery after nightfall, then you know what we mean. But if you forgo the Kadoatie in favor of the White Weewoo, you won't have to deal with having to purchase mass amounts of earplugs! We're not entirely sure what it is about White Weewoos, but they are rather courageous despite their size.

As mentioned previously, White Weewoos tend to be quite small in size, and they remain so throughout their lives. The implication is that you won't have to spend a fortune on petpet food, which is truly a boon for those who have had to save up for their treasured Weewoos. Imagine if you had a petpet the size of the Turmaculus living in your Neohome--you would probably have to buy a veritable mountain of petpet food. Even when juxtaposed with smaller petpets (such as the ever-expanding Plumpy), the choice is clear.

Additionally, White Weewoos seem to live in a constant state of happiness and cheer. In our vast experience, we have discovered that they are tremendously affectionate creatures. This makes them great petpets for young Neopets, who aren't yet equipped to deal with more temperamental petpets. Moreover, White Weewoos tend to be very playful creatures that love birdbaths and the occasional game of Kacheek Seek. This makes them the ideal companion for Grey pets, who need constant reminders of the joys in life. Furthermore, White Weewoos get along very well with other petpets. Although we recommend that you exclusively buy White Weewoos, you might be pleased to know that you won't have any problems if you have other petpets roaming your residence.

Due to their dispositions and general appearance, White Weewoos are arguably the most adorable petpets in existence. You would be hard-pressed to find any petpet that could possibly compete. Even the notoriously malevolent Dr. Sloth agrees, "They're positively squeal-worthy!"

In addition to being absolutely adorable, White Weewoos also happen to be brilliant. For example, they can be trained to deliver your Neomail. For that matter, you can even train them to deliver newspapers! They are also actually remarkably dexterous; with proper tutelage, they are capable of using quills with their tiny feet. You would be surprised at how legible their penmanship can be. As such, there is no denying that they are more intelligent than your average petpet.

Not only are White Weewoos incredibly smart, but also lovely songbirds. If the stress of working on the Neopian Times is keeping awake at night, their soothing voices will relax you until you drift off to sleep. Additionally, if you fancy yourself a singer, they can accompany you with a beautiful, albeit haunting, melody.

Last but certainly not least, White Weewoos are in fashion this season, and will be for the foreseeable future. These extremely versatile petpets will be sure to complement your Neopet perfectly, regardless of color or outfit choice! In fact, we personally guarantee that your pet will never have to worry about clashing with their White Weewoo, even if they spontaneously get a new paint job.

So there you have it; White Weewoos truly are the perfect petpet! If you don't already have one, what are you waiting for? They are--without a doubt--the best petpet and mascot that anybody could ever ask for. We hope you enjoyed reading our article, and that we were able to help you find that soft spot in your heart for the White Weewoo. Thank for reading!
