My brother was on facebook with me, and he started playing a game. It was called “Who has the biggest brain?” It was a fun game. I noticed the logo: Playfish. While waiting for the game to load, I would quietly watch the water filling up the fish and the word “Playfish” on the screen. I was getting pretty sick of that game. I scrolled down to see if this “playfish” company had anything else that would hold my interest for a while.
I saw several choices. One of them caught my eye: Pet Society. What was that? The solution to all of my problems! I clicked on it, and the playfish logo started filling up with water, once again. I hope this isn’t lame, I thought. At last, the words “Pet Society: Beta” came up. I had walked into that game in the middle of December, so everything was Christmasy, and colorful. I still wasn’t into the game. It asked to me create the pet. I did some random design, which turned out to be freakishly ugly:
Yep, that was the old Katrina. Believe it. Except, her name wasn’t Katrina at the time: It was Kav, short for my first name: Kavya.
That picture totally reminds me of the B&W era, when everything used to be so old-fashioned.
Anyway, life was not so good at that time. It’s similar to the stories of many people. Take the children from Slumdog Millionaire. They grew up in slums, but after this movie, they got trust-funds. This was the same story. Except, I wasn’t rich then, and I’m still not rich now. There was a change, however: It went from penniless to middle-class. If you looked at my house right now, you could think that I’d been on pet society for several years, but if you saw it back then, you would laugh. Seriously, you would.
But that’s normal. The laughing ceremony is just a new way of being welcomed into pet society. Laugh. Go ahead, laugh!
So how did this weird, pink bunny turn into a somewhat cute, cheery, purple kitty named Katrina? Through realization, my friends. Realization saved me.
Back to the story: I still wasn’t very intrigued with Pet Society. As far as I knew, the only thing to do was to roam around your house, and watch T.V. But, suddenly, I clicked on the door. I could go outside! I didn’t have to stare at the walls all day! I entered the outside world, and I was amazed. Furniture, D.I.Y, Food, Luxury, and Stylist. Those names intrigued me. I went to furniture shop. I saw a giant christmas tree, and a smaller one next to it. Next to the christmas trees were decorations.
They look so nice! But 800 coins! I wanted it. I bought it, immeadiately. I was a raving maniac, buying everything. My money was gone. I wanted to buy more. The adrenaline was pumping! The feeling was sensational. I wanted more!!! More! But, I needed money. I started racing, and wasting pointless hours in earning trophies and upgrading to new levels! It was insanity. I wanted everything they sold!
My freaky phase was over. I started saving money, responsibly. I bought things that were useful. I treated it like real life.
After getting settled down in pet society, I changed my pet’s look to what you now know today as Katrina, the purple kitty!
Now I’m completely settled in my 7 room home, where I can relax and be with my friends!
