Our pets are called Knuffel. That's why this is the Kingdom of Knuffel, of course.
You can adopt one at Knufftropolis (link here
) for 1900 FPs - but since you are new you can get a FREE trial knuffel now!
Have in mind that the trial knuffel will disappear right after the trial period finishes, with no warning.
If you want to keep it, make sure to buy it before the counter goes down to zero!
Make sure to feed and play with your knuffels as often as you can, since this will earn them experience (XP).
When their energy and happiness bars are grey they are ready to dig.
They dig in the Candyland Island (link here
) and there they may find material (see section below), special digging items or even some FPs.
You will also earn 1000 FPs every 10 levels they reach, which means that at level 20 they have already paid off the investment you made!
If you decide you no longer want a knuffel, you can always give it up - and you will get more FPs for them.
(If you like virtual pets, don't let the price stop you because soon you'll earn it back.)
There are several strategies (to earn more XP, or more FPs, or more material) which you can read about on the Knuffel & Avatar subforum, but at this point I would encourage you to not worry much about any of them and simply learn the ropes.
There are also some props which would help them (funcional room items, daycare coupons and happy pills) which -hopefully- will be covered in this guide in the future.

NOTE: Knuffel fights have not been implemented yet, so don't overthink which fighting bonus you choose - just get one at random.
Material for the Oficial Quests
When you dig you may find some materials, which are non-wearable items stored in the Material section of your wardrobe. They are used in Official Quests.
Go to the Castle (link here
) and make sure to start with one of the easiest ones (one star). An NPC will request something for you and will give you something in return.
To create whatever the NPC requests you must visit the Alchemist, who would give you a list of materials and an amount of FPs required for it.
Take your time to complete the quest and go back to the Alchemist when you have them all. Then return to the Castle for your reward.
It's important not to give up any quest unless you are sure you never intend to try it again - quests which you have given up won't appear in the Castle anymore!
If you want some tips on where to dig to find some materials check the Digging Guide (link here
If you don't have much luck finding the materials you need try the Selling subforum. They are usually affordable and often it's easier gathering the FPs than finding the exact materials you need.
These are user-created Knuffel, and they are adopted in a different section (link here
They behave in a completely different fashion: they can't dig, and you won't get any FPs when they level up - you will get unique items instead!
FP-wise they are probably not the best investment for a new user (many of the items are quite cheap nowadays) but some of them are so beautiful it might be worth for you anyway.
If you like drawing you may want to consider creating a Wild Knuffel yourself!
Not only it's very cool, creators do get a 50% share of all adoption fees collected.
All types of Knuffel live in cute rooms which can be decorated to your taste.
Visit the Living Empire to buy whatever items you want for each of your Knuffel rooms. Most of the have only decorative purposes, but notice the ones under the label Functional also have some sort of funcion.
There is a monthly official contest (link here
) and the reward for the best three rooms each month is a lovely trophy which will give you FPs every day.
