Forest Friends Food
The animals from the Elder Holly Glade have two favourite types of food.. "Pabulum-Cupitus" [commonly called Breeder Food] and "Pabulum-Amicus" [commonly called Pet Food]. Both are specially crafted foods to provide nutrition and enjoyment for your forest friends. You can tell them apart as the breeder food has a grassy mound, a purple lantern and red particles and the pet food has a dirt mound with a yellow lantern and particles. Both breeder food and pet food have 2 land impact.
Let's spend a moment and talk about what each food does, and why they favour both kinds..
- Breeder food will allow your pet [within the age restrictions] to gain "Passion" and therefore breed!
- Pet food will keep your pet's happy and healthy, but will not enable them to increase the passion to breed.
Remember that your pet can eat from either food type and by default will eat breeder food! If you decide to feed your forest friend pet food they will lose their passion. If you decide to switch back to breeder food, it will take around 2 days for the pet food to leave the pet's system, before it can gain passion again!
You can change your pet's food preferences from their click menu - click on the Pet > Settings > Food...
Also be aware that your animal can only gain passion, when his or her Hunger level is Below 5%! Each pet will eat only once per hour, and each food will have enough feeds in it, to feed 1 pet for 30 days!
Once your animal reaches age 99 it becomes an elder and no longer requires sustenance.
