Trying to whet Turmy's appetite...

Recommended Posts

So I've been wondering if Turmy's renowned reluctant to eat anyone's petpet is down some pretty fundamental dietary preferences.

Here's me, trying - and perpetually failing - to get him to eat poor Nolly cardboard_petpet_3.gifsince 22nd November 2014. He's not interested, and can you blame him? Would YOU want to chow down on a chunk of cardboard?! I know I wouldn't!

So I'm trying with something a little more appetising!

Of course if Turmy's gluten-intolerant or allergic to eggs we may have a WHOLE different situation on our hands here, but one problem at a time, ya know? xD

Don't be fooled by the cuteness either, this ball of batter's got a bit of an attitude...

The cheek of it!

I could have used one of those yucky Custard Arootas Expellibox dumps on us but yeah, yucky. I wanted Turmy to appreciate that I was willing to cough up for a decent tasty snack rather than be a tight-wad and use a freebie, especially a particularly unappetising-looking freebie! And who doesn't like cake? Even the most dedicated carnivore likes a bit of cake on occasion.

SO! Am I wasting my time??

UNDOUBTEDLY‼

😅

But, and that's the thing isn't it, but...

You don't really know, it just might work... :ph34r:

I can't bear to let him eat any of my petpets.

 

To be honest that's why I'm trying with the Hasee, I've become attached to the cute l'il Liobits over the last 4 years and I'd be horrified if Turmy ate it. 😥 So this way, my Kacheek can have him back once the deed is done! 😁

that's a risk worth taking , @jellysundae

i'd lend you my Jelly Blobikins except he's zapped so it'll revert back to whatever it was before :P

Aw, you're a sweetie,  Angeló 💖 Maybe I should have tried with that Chocolate lab rat petpet of mine! It's a pile of soot again right now. 🤣

This is hilarous @jellysundae, I recently started actively trying to get this avvie again and I picked my ill-fated petpet based on 1) I have a bazillion of them in my SDB and 2) because I thought maybe Turmy would mistake the little guy for a lobster dinner lol

The things we do for these avvies, amirite?! Good luck baiting him with your little cupcake!

Hey I'm not proud, he ate my Custard Aroota after a few months. I actually think they're quite cute :blush02:

If it was one of my petpets, he'd definitely eat it, and it wouldn't matter what type. If I had a dung petpet attached, I'm sure he'd eat it! He's claimed two, so far. The two of us are going to "dance" in the Battledome, someday, and it's not going be "Dancing with the Stars" - I'll be dancing and he'll be seeing stars. Unfortunately, I think he knows if you have a beloved petpet attached, or not. And that's the petpet he wants to eat. I think he is a Neopian version of Stephen King's "IT". If it's the avatar you're after, it reminds me of "The Avengers: Infinity War", where Thanos goes to Vormir with Gamora to obtain the Soul Stone. In order to possess the power of the Soul Stone, you must sacrifice the soul of someone you love - a soul for a soul. In this case, a loved petpet for an avatar you'd "love" to have...

EDIT: Awesome name for the Birthday Hasee, though!

EDIT EDIT: Or "Taystie" could be the new nickname for Taylor Swift fans...

Fighting talk from Scoobs‼ A perfect excuse for this chap I do believe!

So this is basically a Faustian bargain?...

So Turmy's really a pagan entity we're trying to make sacrifices to?...

This is all a bit deep! 😧

Sorry. I'm still bitter about Turmy eating my petpets, even though I knew the risks and kept visiting him, and, worse, even after I got the avatar from the first one. Which is why I'm using a sad Marble Pie as my TDN avatar.

I don't know. I think Turmy is mild, compared to "Feed Florg". I sometimes have a hard time playing that game. It just doesn't seem right.

Don't ever apologise for mourning your lose. Though is it more angry at yourself for continuing to visit? I only ever played Feed Florg for the Top Gamer avatar, not been near it again, it's too creepy.

Hmmm, you've got me wondering now, maybe, deep down, I'm basically expecting Turmy to NEVER eat my petpet, and that's why I'm ok with trying. We'll see what impact it has on me if he ever does the deed... 😰

i remember he ate my warf 

personally i don't think petpets die when they go in Turmy's belly . Instead they go to a huge garden inside his stomach where they can play forever .. that's why he doesn't eat petpets very often .. he can't save them all inside (only when one dies of natural causes he eats another one to replace it)

Well that's a rather cute idea. 😁 May he get ever fatter then, to make more room!

If I was Turmy I'm not sure I would want to eat the new petpet either. It's too cute, I would feel so bad about it

Maybe that IS why he doesn't eat 'em! I might need another game plan here, lol.

The Hasee's done something useful for me anyway, whilst waiting to be masticated!

Taystie jumps out of the hole a few seconds later...

It appears that Taystie came back a little richer. They must have found the 440 np in the hole...
