Staying Ready For Emergencies

Emergencies can strike at any time and it is a good idea to be as prepared as possible. You always want to have a security stash deep in your security deposit box just in case the worst happens, like your pet losing all their HP in the battledome or a bad zap of the lab ray.

Gross Foods That Aren't as Gross as You Think

You know there are a lot of food items in Neopia - some great and some...well not so great. In fact, they have their own category called "gross foods", but looking through the list, are they really as gross as their name implies? In this list we wanted to focus on gross food items that we actually wouldn't mind trying out.

"Tsarki and the Art of Pest Management" by peirigill
Tsarki awakened with a jolt. Two enormous eyes and a giant, slobbering maw completely filled her field of vision. Giggling, she grabbed the monstrous form and lifted it into the shaft of morning light creeping through the thatched window. No longer an inch from her face, the “monster” appeared properly as a cute little Slorg. She bumped her dark snout affectionately against its mucousy forehead, then gently dropped it into a tray of wheatgrass on her nightstand. I was prepared for you, she thought with satisfaction. Slorgs were not uncommon here near the Berkshire Glen, on the outskirts of the Haunted Woods, where spooky trees gave way to shady meadows and spooky petpets of all sorts thrived. Tsarki knew she was in danger of becoming a “crazy Kadoatie lady” - or in her case, perhaps, a crazy Meowclops lady - but she just couldn’t help setting up feeders for the local critters. It made them so happy. Besides, it kept them out of the plants and mosses and mushrooms she used for potion-making, her literal cottage industry. Still, it was uncommon for a Slorg to get right in her face like that. Perhaps it was especially hungry, or just lost?
