Q: What is a virtual pet?
A: A virtual pet in its highest form would be an artifical intelligence living not in particular bits or bytes, but living because it requires some of the same sorts of things we do in order to operate. In its simplest form it is a picture like on Neopets®, to which someone attaches an imaginative story. The Adopted Neopets become as alive in the imagination as a live pet would be. Thus the name: Virtual Pets, they are also called cyber pets and in our case the virtual pets are called cyber critters.
Q. Why are some called virtual pets and others are called computer pets?
A. You may also hear about "desktop pets" or "desktop virtual pets." These are virtual pets you can download to your personal computer. You can play with these pets like you would a video game you don't have to be online. There are online virtual pets as well. Online virtual pets are available only when you are online.
Q. What happens when I go online? Does my free virtual desktop pet automatically go online for updates?
A. Your cyber pet is very well mannered and won't do anything without asking your permission. In fact, in future versions, one of your duties can be to go on line occasionally to play with your virtual pet along with others in the critterCorrals.
