Virtual plants and animals to take care of

Maybe you are a secret animal lover but your partner is afraid of them? Or thereís just not enough space in your flat to keep a pet? Perhaps you are a botanist at heart but you just donít have the time to water plants? Now is the chance to make up for lost time. The answer is not messy or noisy, but nonetheless requires a minimum amount of attention. The answer is virtual plants and animals.

Adopting a virtual animal on the Internet is very easy. After choosing your four-legged friend, your mission is to take good care of it. Thatís what happens with the "Global Pets", where you get to feed your virtual companion, play with it and watch it grow. You have to look after it and put it to bed just like a real pet. Following the evolution of a virtual companion is fascinating!

Are you a fish lover? Then go for Mopy. The scientific name of this fish is Piscenus Mopei Floataneus. Itís a captivating species that thrives on interaction. Mopy is characterized by its joyful nature and its calming effect on stressed people. Its natural habitat is a special aquarium on your computer desktop, where it lives, feeds, plays and occasionally sulks.

For people that prefer plants, DesktopPlant is a program that will bring some life to your computer. Virtual plants grow thanks to the love and care that you offer them, just like real ones. You can choose from a variety of plants, such as an azalea, cactus, maple tree or philodendron.
