Some wonderful new changes..
You may have noticed that there are some beautiful new items in the magic shop. It's up to you to figure out what they do! The forums will now be ordered by the last time they were replied to, so you know which is the hottest topic! A few other things have been moved around. I will continue to make updates, so I apologize if you come across a broken feature.

Contact me if you have any comments,

Has it ever been a long time!
I've been going through a lot of life changes, which is why Gurupets hasn't had any updates for a while. Good news is, my roommate is a talented artist! Check out the new pen and snowglobe.

Have fun with stuff!

January 19, 2013
I know I haven't posted any news in a while, but a lot of things have been going on at Gurupets.
Recently there has been a hacker at another pet site who has caused some unfortunate users to be redirected to Gurupets. As the creator, I had no knowledge of these redirections. It has nothing to do with Gurupets or me. I am sorry that some of you felt that I was trying to shamelessly promote Gurupets. Please know that I am aware that the best way to get more members is to improve Gurupets, not to trick people into coming here.

If you have further comments, I'd love to hear them. As usual, Gurumail me or use the contact form to get a hold of me.

April 7, 2012
Lots to say...
I know I haven't updated the news in a while, but I've been very busy updating the site! A feature that every good petsite has to have has finally come to Gurupets! You can now feed your pets. On the My Pets page, if your pet has not been fed recently, it will be "starving". Feed it something from your inventory (most food items work) and it will become full! Of course, that doesn't last long. Be sure to feed your pets so they don't starve.
As usual, the rest of the changes I made are hardly visible for you users (fixing "delete items from store", etc.) but I have been working hard to make Gurupets waaay more fun.

Feel free to Gurumail me or use the contact form if you have any ideas you want me to know!

March 17, 2012
Great news, everyone!
The Adoptin Centre is now up and running! You can disown your pet from the My Pets page and then adopt a new one at the adoption centre! There is currently no price for adopting a pet, but that may change.
Another fabulous new feature is that everyone now has the ability to change their pets' descriptions! Sadly, apostrophes cannot be used in these descriptions. So get customizing!
Oh, and you can access the Adoption Centre from Gurucity, right next to the Create a Pet building.

Be nice to your pets!

March 15, 2012
It's been a while...
But I have fixed quite a few things. The cupcakes are back it working order! And I think I might make them cheaper because I know how difficult it is to get gurupoints.
Next I'm going to be working on a pet adoption centre! That means you'll be able to disown your unwanted pets and adopt new ones. This shouldn't take too long to make, so hold on tight!
There is a new feature on the site... Secret avatars! There is currently only one... See if you can find it!

Have fun,

January 1, 2012
Happy New Years!!
More things have been fixed up, such as creating a pet and REGISTERING!! If anyone is reading this, I would love some ideas for how to fix up Gurupets in order to attract more people. Please send your ideas to me through Gurumail or post them on the forums. Have you found the new image yet? (It's not my avatar)


December 31, 2011
I'm back! With some good news.
A certain image has been revamped. I suggest exploring to find out what it is! I hope you like it. I drew it myself.

I'm working hard on more changes, so stay tuned!

December 31, 2011
Hi everyone! (aka no one)
I have fixed up a few things here and there, but some aspects of Gurupets are still not working (purcahsing items, creating pets, searching for items). Hopefully these will be fixed up soon. In the meantime, I'll be thinking of ways to improve the look of Gurupets and ways to attract new users.

Look for changes coming up!

December 28, 2011
It's been a very long time, but daddy and I finally fixed the login. Logging in to gurupets is now possible, but many other things are not. User profiles do not work, nor do the forums or pet profiles. Please do not update your preferences unless you want to lose everything. I will continue to work hard to get Gurupets working again, but it is likely that it will never work again without being redone from scratch.

It may take a while, but there should be good changes to come! >Spook

December 26, 2010
Now you can add friends on gurupets! To add a friend, go to their profile and click on the smiley face. That will send them a request that they can accept or decline. To see a list of your friends or pending requests, click on Friends in the sidebar.
And I have more exciting news! Gurupets has new art, thanks to my friend Wawa! Say hello to the new cake slice, coffee and hot chocolate.

As a celebration for this new art I am placing the Blue Cake Slice and Pink Cake Slice back in the Foodstore. Enjoy!

I hope there is more fabulous art to come!

November 21, 2010
Lots of changes have been made to gurupets, though they are hardly noticeable. First and foremost, any user is now capable of changing their password. I hope everyone takes advantage of this of this feature because I know those 4 letter passwords are pretty annoying. Next, I made the forums much nicer looking, in every way. Also daddy and I are working on a friends feature. It doesn't do much... but soon you should be able to create a list of your friends.
And there's a few minor changes. The mail icon on the sidebar now links to your inbox.

More changes to come, so don't give up on me!

October 1, 2010
That's right! I've decided to continue updating Gurupets. I won't stop until it's actually fun to play. Maybe it will even look professional! I'll definitely need to get new items, new pets, a new layout a lot of new features.
I've been going around the site fixing up whatever I can. Lists of items in stores are now in a neat table as well as pets on user profiles and on the "my pets" page.

I hope someone is reading this,

March 12, 2010
Of course, I couldn't stop at just one cool game.
I bring you, the Golden Poo Chase.

This is a game that is very similar to Snake. Using the arrow keys you move around, collecting golden poos. This game doubles your score so it's easier to get more points!

Have fun chasing poo,

March 11, 2010
Most exciting news since gurumail...
But first, let's look at a less interesting news piece. Now the "Contact Us" link and the bottom of the page will take you to an e-mail form that you can fill out. Waay better than what used to be there.
And now the important news.

Gurupets has a new flash game! That's right! And I, Spook, made it myself! (with a little help from dad) You can use it to get gurupoints! So, I hope you enjoy the new game where you get to shoot cupcakes.

Happy hunting,

January 31, 2010
This isn't really news but...
Mia made some more items!

Aren't they pretty? They're in the foodstore. Make sure you stock up!

Bon Appetite!

January 18, 2010
Guess what! I asked Mia to redraw all of the Candycanes... but do these look like Candycanes?

That's right! Candycanes have been replaced by these AWESOME cupcakes. I dunno about you but I definitely like cupcakes more than candycanes. Lets all thank Mia very, very much! I can't wait to see what else she's got coming.

I hope you love them as much as me!

January 17, 2010
Today I added a new color of pet that I thought of with the help of Unknown. Here it is:

Inverted Pets!!
I know they're pretty... different but if you want to walk on the wild side you can buy Inverted Candycanes in the Magic Store.

Have fun,

January 15, 2010
Hey guys,
Lately, I've been fixing up various glitches all around the site. I also added a few things like a User Search. Now you can search for your friends just by typing in their username! Another small new feature is a link on everyone's profile to send them gurumail. I hope you like the changes!


January 13, 2010
Oh geez, it's been awhile. I hope there are still people to read this.
Hi, it's Spook! I finally decided to get back to work on Gurupets because I couldn't leave it unfinished! I'm going to fix every glitch and pretty much make this site actually fun. I know that there was absolutely nothing to do before, but I hope that will change. I've already gotten to work on fixing up glitches and adding new features. The footer is now on every page, the color scheme has been fixed on most pages, you can now choose a gender for your pet AND there is a new Pet Profile page.
I would also like to say that if you have any suggestions for Gurupets, I would love to see them posted on the forums!

That's all. :D

March 14, 2007
  • Hi, it's Aquastar again! There are some new items in the Coffee Shop, and also the glitch in the Coffee Shop has been fixed, thanks to Spook! Well here is a picture of one of the new coffees.

    *please note that this is not my real grammar, Spook insisted that I wrote neatly, and it is very, very, very annoying! Bye (this grammar is killing me so im going to stop writing now!!!)*
  • March 14, 2007

  • Hi! this is your amazing Aquastar Speaking!!! Ha ha ha, anyways thanks to me *snickers* we have a new store, its called the coffee shop and it is located in the North Pole!!! If you can fine it (its easy to find) go buy a cup of hot steaming chocolate, yum yum yum!!!
  • March 9, 2007

  • Okay, as you've probably noticed, Gurupets has a new layout. I'm too lazy to add the footer to all the pages so... I'll update it... soon. Anyways, i hope you like it. it was drawn AND coded by our beloved Rikka. so... I hope you like it. Bye! I'm kinda watching Hitchhikers Guide right now so I have no time for you.
  • March 3, 2007

  • I've been really busy doing stuff! But soon I can add more items MAYBE and a special new feature for these items. Don't stop playing because some stuff WILL be added. Good day.
  • Feb 14, 2007

  • Wait... HAPPY V-DAY! And here we have... PINK PETS!

    Love it? Well, I'll add it AND increase the amount of candycanes in the shop. Have a love-filled day!
  • Feb 11, 2007

  • Oooh! I have news. First of all. I had to delete all the forum posts... because of SOME people. (you know who you are) Second, thank aquastar for making purple pets! Yay!

    I've added it and people should be buying it soon. Thats all for now folks!
  • Feb 4, 2007

  • Well, hellu there! I'm sorry for any... inconveniences... (is that how you spell it?!) in my absence. Well, that includes spamming, people not knowing what to do, blah blah blah. Okay, so the news is that all those '07 items need to be cleared from the shops. Yes, they are officially worth more now. And I decided to keep the sparklers since people like them so much. So... Yippee! Oh, and happy Super Bowl!
  • Jan 21, 2007

  • Gueessss what? I'm baaaccckkk. Well, I got back on friday... but that's another story. Barbados was amazingly amazing. On Gurupets news, I've basically just been fixing bugs and checking my e-mail but I also have two special surprises for you. One of them, you've probably heard of if you go on Gurugraphix and read the articles. -hint- -hint- Well, the other one is not as cool but it still rox my sox and is very complicated to make. I'll probably have both things done in a bout a week and you guys will go berserk and start bouncing of the walls. That's okay though... I'll just have to keep my eyes peeled for people who will use the craziness as an excuse to spam. Oh yeah, I made a rules page... well SilverButterfly made it, so you better follow them! Some of them aren't so important but some are vital. That's all for now folks!
  • Jan 3, 2007

  • Hey, You should check out the games page! It's been updated a bit. The new GuruGame is just SOOO cool. Too bad that it can't give out GP, but that's just life as it is, eh? Well, RKA made it and he really spiffed us up a new game! I hope you can get past the kitangel level, cause I sure can't. It's really fun. I just have one more comment though. You have to download it. I swear on my life and your life and everyone in the world's life that it has NOTHING that can harm your computer. It's a very simple download. All you do is save it to your computer. Well, I hope you like it.
  • Jan 1, 2007

  • Well, first off

    Happy New Year!!!!

    Yeah, we've got some new items and IF you think they have some special ability, I'm sorry to say that they don't. Also, Rikka has been soooooo kind as to release her surprise today! That's right! It's the new shopkeeper in the Food Store who seems to be a SKIZZEL! Which not only happens to be my favorite gurupet but is also modeled after the little rodent-squirrel-thingy. That's all for now folks. Have a Happy New Year!

  • NEws, I got rid of the Holiday Themed items.. they were getting old. I fixed a HUGE glitch... that you might have noticed or might not have noticed. So.. yeah. Bye!
  • Dec 24, 2006

  • So, some updates for today. I've added some info on the Register/Join page about the new referrel system. I haven't started the referrel system yet but in should be done in a couple of days. Also, in other news, there is a new forum thread called Changes for site? that I would like people to put their ideas on. Please don't gurumail me your ideas. Thank-you. That's all for now.

    I've edited the layout but the register page had some problems, so all the stuff that I wrote on there is gone. I'll put it up later. But now, we've got a newsletter, thanks to Nushie for suggesting it. Please send your articles to gurupets@islandnet.com, with subject as 'Submit Article'. You must submit a Microsoft Word Document (.doc) or a Text Document (.txt).

  • Dec 18, 2006

  • Et, voila! C'est magnifique. Oh, sorry, just practicing my french. Now, where was I? And, wow! Look at those new seasonal and casual items. Pancakes anyone? Want a Wreath for your door or maybe add a plain snow globe to your collection. Well, you'll find the seasonal items in the toy store and the food... in the food store of course! Hope you like 'em.
  • Dec 16, 2006

  • Ooh, look. I've been away for a gazillion years. My fave book came out in Canada but I can't get it cause I'm not there till June and it comes out on the 26 of December in the U.S. . -pouts- Anyways, I've been away because I'm newly obsessed with Avatar - The Last Airbender. Um, the preference page is up but it doesn't work exactly how I need it to work so you might not want to use it till I'm done with that. It's on the message board page so.. yeah. Oh well. And, happy Channukah if you celebrate it! It started yesterday. Happy Holidays everyone!
  • Dec 1, 2006

  • Happy December! Happy holiday junk. I just don't happen to celebrate Christmas so I'm not particularly use to giving Christmas presents. It's that time of year! So many great holidays! So I just decided I'll have some Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanzaa items.. just need my artists to cook them up. I need NO MORE artist applications at the moment. Also, please refrain from sending me gurumail when you need something. I just happened to count 60 messages from mid-November till now. Okay, for some more bad/good news, no more 100 members cake! No more specials cake till 1000 members which I don't hope to reach in the middle of the night. In other good news, preference page is here! In the near 1/2 day future! I'll post tomorrow but for now, ttyls.
  • Nov 15, 2006

  • Okay, guess what! That's right! A new pet has come to kill us all! Also, there's a new shop called the toy store. It has toys! Thanks Rikka for the wonderful art that she has done for gurupets! While your at it, look at this amazing new default avatar that she made!

    Hope you're enjoying gurupets!
  • Nov 11, 2006

  • First news for today,
    YAY! Rainbow pets have come to rule the world and bring peace and happiness!

    Second News for today: 103 members! This means, bring in the 100 Members Cake! It's in the foodstore ready to be eaten! I'll be there until we get 110 members.
  • Nov 8, 2006

  • Hey, guess what!?
    Okay then, maybe I'll just tell you. We've got these candycanes that are different colors and cost a lot of GP. And, we've got these .. normal colored pets that need some zazz. Well, if you just happen to be rich enough or find a cheap one in a store, you could feed your pet a red candycane and it will end up red! Same with blue, green and brown. Much more to come! So stick around! (colors courtesy of Rikka) Thanks for being awesome people!
  • Nov 6, 2006

  • Woah! Look at that Kitangel! That's right, Rikka finished the new kitangel and it looks like we're ready for some new pets.. but while we wait, I can tell you that the next pet will look like a horse-like-thing. That's all for now.
  • Oct 23, 2006

  • Is that the skizzel? Wow it is! That's right, many of you might have noticed that one of our wonderful new artists, Rikka, has redone the three first pets and now she's working on the kitangel (it'll be a broken image for now x) )
  • Oct 18, 2006

  • We've got another new artist! But this time I want you to guess who it is! Look at all the wonderful new foods.
  • Oct 16, 2006

  • Thank Rikka for making for fabulous avatars for our site! Give her a round of applause for helping with the site.
  • Oct 15, 2006

  • We've got a brilliant new artist named Rikka.. she made the new skizzel avatar! YAY! And hopefully more to come, so be on the lookout!
  • Sept 18, 2006

  • There's a strange looking skizzel guarding a new building on the other side of gurutopia! He won't let you in unless you're staff! Who knows what's inside.... I DO!
  • Aug 22, 2006

  • I'm back! i'm gonna start on plenty of surprise codes for you guys.. including item codes! (makes the item usable) I've got tons of ideas... so stick around! remember, e-mail me at gurupets@islandnet.com if you want to be part of the staff.
  • July 25, 2006

  • Sorry folks but I'm gonna be away for a long long long time (aka 4 weeks) so I'm gonna miss you!
  • July 22, 2006

  • Hi, as you probably noticed, gurupets has a new artist! Her username is Tennis_Cutie and she's going to help the site get better and better!
  • July 21, 2006

  • I'm finished the deleting feature for GuruMail. I hope you like it!
  • July 20, 2006

  • I'm working on deleting mesages at the moment.
  • Welcome the new (limited edition) pet, the kitangel!!! Since it's limited edition it will only be available today and on it's special day so please grab one while you can!

    July 19, 2006

  • And now... the moment we've all been waiting for... put your hands together for GURUMAIL!!!! A fun messaging feature where you can send mail to all your friends on gurupets.com! -Will be done in a few hours-
  • Yay! It's done!

    July 17, 2006

  • I've made user profiles! I hope you like them! For those of you who signed up without your country and your first name, please e-mail me at gurupets@islandnet.com with you first name -which can be made up-, your country and your username. Thanks for joining gurupets!
  • July 1, 2006

  • Guess what??? It's my birthday month!!! I've released new items only for July that will be out of the shops by Aug. 1. Here they are:

  • June 11, 2006

  • I just added a new place called the North Pole... Um.. so you can't do anything on it yet but it's fun to look at.
  • I've added two more places but... guess what? They're on the other side of the world!!!! Just click on the coloured arrow and voila! The other side of gurutopia. So... that's done.. heh.
  • June 10, 2006

  • Kay, here are some updates. I've added a world map with presently 2 places and I've added "back to city" links in all the stores!! That good? Thanks for being good sports (not that there are any of ya)
  • I just changed the city map!!! I really hope you people like it!!! I'm really getting the hang of this thing.
  • June 9, 2006

  • Sorry I havn't updated in a very very very very long time, but I'm working on a preference page where you can change your password avatar and soon much more! So. Very sorry for the no update thing.
  • May 8, 2006

  • Thanks to www.freewebs.com/ipspower for the new dice game. Roll the dice and if you roll a seven then you win! At the moment there are no prizes but it is a fun game!
  • May 4, 2006

  • I've made it so that avatars are shown when you post on the forums, you may choose your avatar when you sign up and you may ask me for an avatar. I will soon make the avatars animated.
  • April 30, 2006

  • Okay, here's how the staff is basically at the moment. I, aka Anna, aka Spook am the owner of gurupets. Simone, aka Unknown is the co-owner and soon to be artist (it's her first time). And I've got some friends who are the moderators e.g. Bruce, Delphine and Caitlyn. Hm.. if you would like to be any kind of a staff member then that would be greatly appreciated!
  • April 29, 2006

  • Welcome to Gurupets beta testing! I've done the restocks and i've made it so that there are four of each item in the stores. Here is a list of some cool things I can do with this site: Freeze accounts, give people points, give people pets, register an account without using the register page, change the username of your account and much much more! Just to tell you, I get to see your passwords when you sign up.
  • I've added a new store, the magic store! It sells magical items! Including the candycanes which will soon change the colour of your pet! I hope you like it.
