Oh, that's a bummer. Hope you can find another one, it is a nice pet to run. It is not widely popular/known, google search nets me my own thread mostly, which is kinda odd.
If you can get a guwappi duck, gyaoppi duck I think it is even better with additional features like weather. I got a super gyaoppi 9in1 (duck is in it too) but it is with an overseas friend (the seller did not post to my country) and it is not in the best condition, my friend was not able to open up a screw. I will try it out when and if I get it and it works. I had super gyaoppi 9in1 as a child and it was the BEST virtual pet, content wise, though I long for my smart 24in1 baby&pets vpet for sentimental reasons. It was my first vpet and I will always love it. I will never get a new one though, they are super super rare-nearly extinct. Which breaks my heart a little.
As for news, I had the worst stomach flu of my life, was laying on bed semi-unconcious for the last day with fever, chills, and aching all around. Dehydration is one hell of a drug. I had to put the ducky on sleep for extended amounts of time. I was so sick couldn't do most basic things.
The vpet never wakes up on its own, which is a good thing. It does not get hungry or unhappy when asleep. Which is a very convenient feature when real life does not allow you take care of your vpet.
I at least editted the clock again so it did not age. I feel a bit better today, at least I don't feel like I am dying, so I will probably allow it to age to 6 today, and we will see if this over-sleep mode hurts its evolution.
