A pet is a non-combat NPC loyal to a player that generally requires a certain level in Summoning to own. Typically, a player must raise a pet to maturity by having it follow them. Many pets can also be fed and interacted with. Most pets do not serve a purpose other than decoration, however, some pets are used in quests and have other additional benefits.

A player may only have one pet, familiar, or NPC (e.g. Zanik, or the Zanaris choir) following them at one time. Players can manage pets while active through the familiar interface, by using food on them, by left-clicking, and with direct interaction by right-clicking.

Pets that exist as items may be stored in the bank or inventory, and will follow the player when dropped. Other pets are automatically stored in the Hero interface and can be called to follow the player at any time. Players can store up to 25 pets in the Menagerie of a player-owned house (with the highest-level pet houses). Unlike familiars, pets may be brought into Summoning-free zones.

Summoning-related petsEdit

Baby dragon (blue) pet

A rare mature baby blue dragon, available with level 99 Summoning.

Many pets require an appropriate Summoning level to be obtained, raised, and kept. With some exceptions, such as god birds for protection in the God Wars Dungeon, these pets have no real use other than decoration, or as a way to show off a player's Summoning level.

Caring for petsEdit

When a pet is first obtained, it will be in its lowest growth stage and will grow as it follows the player, with the exception of several pets which only have one growth stage such as the Broav.

A player can monitor a pet's growth and hunger in the Summoning menu. Younger pets will become hungrier faster than their adult counterparts, but the frequency of feeding does not affect a pet's growth rate.

Unlike other pets, kittens must be stroked and fed regularly or they will run away. Once they reach adult stage, they no longer need to be fed.

At 100% growth, the pet will mature into its next form. Pets can have up to three growth stages. Legendary pets obtained from Solomon's General Store can be interacted with and can be fed different types of food that can also be obtained from the store, which will speed up their growth significantly.

Pets that hatch from eggs will need incubating before they hatch, which requires them to be placed in an egg incubator found in the Pet shops in Taverley and Yanille. Players will receive a chat box notification when the egg has hatched. Any pet hatched in an incubator will remain there until the player chooses to retrieve it. Pet shop owners are also the only NPCs that sell specific food for pets.

A player may speak with a pet once they are 10 or more Summoning levels above the required Summoning level to obtain that pet. Communication with pets above the level of 90 is possible, with the exception of the Baby dragon, which cannot be understood regardless of how high the player boosts their Summoning level. The Monkey can be spoken to if the player wears the M'speak amulet from Monkey Madness, and the TzRek-Jad is naturally capable of speech. Players with 99 summoning can communicate with a Chameleon after using the cape's right click "boost" option to temporarily achieve level 100 summoning.

Dragon eggs and Vulture eggs are both semi-rare drops from their respective creature. God bird eggs and Raven eggs are semi-rare finds from Bird's nests.

Use and receptionEdit

When pets were first released, many players complained that pets still required food even when fully grown, unlike the cats, which required no feeding once a kitten had grown up. This was explained as stress on the server as having a pet or familiar out all the time would inevitably slow them down. This is also the reason why timers are implemented and no familiars are visible in high player density areas such as the Grand Exchange. Pets being high maintenance was too much bother to some players that would likely have the ability to own the higher level pets and wouldn't consider keeping them out other than for passive activities. This was especially true for pets with non-stackable food of which is currently the majority. Familiars however filled the gap that many thought pets would take, as skill/combat aids and beasts of burden, leaving pets largely ignored for lack of any ability.

As part of an update on 19 December 2012, pets will no longer run away as a result of hunger, with the exception of pet cats.

TriviaEdit

  • Initially, players could have mature God birds of differing Gods. Jagex limited God bird ownership to one bird for a time, but with the introduction of the Menagerie, it became possible to own all three God birds at once.
  • Zamorak hawks and Saradomin Owls will prevent warriors from said allegiances attacking you while in the God Wars Dungeon. This can be extremely useful for players who do not wish to be forced to wear a particular armour showing allegiance to said groups.
  • Eek, the reward for completing the 2009 Hallowe'en Event, could be considered the first pet allowed to Non-members. However, because Eek won't follow you, she could be considered similar to a Pet rock or Pet fish. Eek can also be put into the menagerie, where the player has the option to 'Interact' with her, resulting in the same dialogue.
  • Players originally had a limit on the number of pets they could own. This started with 2 pets of different types at level 1 Summoning, along with 2 more for every ten levels starting at level 11. However, the limit on different types of pets was removed on 16 January 2012.
  • Prior to the introduction of Summoning, the only pets in Gielinor were cats, fish and pet rocks.
