Well I don't think its the Exact same as neopets. There are some things the powerpets introduced first, and then neopets had. But pretty much any virtual site made people will say was a take off of neopets, as it was the first. But anyways, in my opinion I consider powerpets better as its a nice friendly site, especially because the staff are always there and you can personlly talk to them instead of though an email. Also the good cause of the website is amazing, as it works with saving real animals unlike neopets were its pure profit.
But if anyone else has an account there please post your username, I would be happy to help you on there if its needed.
