Foo Pets

There is a neat website where you can adopt virtual pets. They have animated, but fairly realistic dogs and cats that you can apply to adopt. You have the chance to feed them, send a toy for them to play with and watch them play and "talk" to you. The kittens purr very loudly and the animals have very realistic personalities and movement. For those with children who can't have a pet due to allergies or living situations, this would be a captivating site for them and would give some of the interactions that a real pet would give, minus the touch factor. I think it would also give your child a sense of responsibility of owning and caring for a pet. You might take note of how many times you'd need to remind your kids to feed their "pets" and to see if they bored of the animals too quickly. Right now, the website is only taking applications. The adoptions will be given out later. You can check out the site here:
