Meerkats

Postby Twindebikay » Thu Aug 02, 2018 1:36 pm

Has anyone else gotten their Meerkats? I’ve had mine for 24 hours and wondered if they were malfunctioning. They are hiding in the ground and never move. You never see them because their heads are covered. Nothing happens when you tap on them. The only time there is movement is when you feed them. They jump up out of their holes, dive back in and then you don’t see them again until the next time you feed them. They are like a decoration that doesn’t move. You have no idea that this sand formation is actually a pet... Except you can feed it periodically. So unlike any other pet and kind of disappointing to never see them (except briefly when feeding).

What do they do if you just don’t feed them? Do they stay visible?

They do nothing, and stay hidden. I think of all the pets, these ones were the most lazy, graphically speaking. Which is why I didn’t want them in the first place, only reason I went for them was because I had the speed glitch

What a missed opportunity. Meerkats are pretty cute animals but this sounds like worst pet ever. I mean, the kraken is bad because it is so huge, the pig is bad because it is so ugly, but a pet that is basically just dirt 99% of the time seems like a total waste.

And here’s me about 15 Jasper hearts from getting the last sticker I need to adopt it. How anticlimactic.

Ok, so I got the things. Anyone else totally creeped out at the imagery of the meerkats wearing giant meerkat skulls on their heads? IMO its kind of revolting.

This really does take the prize for truly awful. They didn’t even bother making it look like a natural patch of dirt. It’s just a rectangle with weirdly sloped sides like someone made it from a mold, with addition of spiky dirt termite mounds (?). Whoever did this one needs to be let go.

IMO if we weren't going to actually see the pet much, they may as well have just given us the termites. Finally, some protein for the monkeys!

Now I know why I haven’t placed them as a I want pet. I’ve got more pets than I can handle now.Feeding all of them is a chore.

if it wasn't for the speed boost, I definitely would not have worked too hard to get them, if ya'll remember, I basically sat the bonus tiers out last time and only got 6 stickers towards them because it just happened that the things I was doing in game coincided with what Jasper needed, but I didn't go out of my way to work it.

but like Ely said, they are kind of creepy, and I feel like the graphics department took a snooze on these lol
