Pet Care and Family Score

The most up-to-date image and information guide on Webkinz Classic items, events, and more!

The Pet Care Heart is the fourth pet meter, on the left side of the pet's avatar.[3]

Filling the Pet Care Heart earns Family Score, seen at the top right of the player's screen.[4]

Both the Pet Care Heart and Family Score features were added to Webkinz on July 8, 2015 with the Webkinz X update.

Pet Care Heart

Within one day, the Pet Care Heart will only fill and will never deplete. At midnight KinzTime, it will lose 25% of its value the prior day.

Filling Pet Care Hearts is not mandatory, and a full or empty Pet Care Heart will not affect the pet in any way. Filling up Pet Care Hearts will earn the player bonus KinzCash and Family Score.[5]

Pet Requests

As you play in Webkinz Classic, you’ll see your pet ask you for something. When your pet makes a request and you fulfill it, you’ll also earn a 25 point boost to their Pet Care Heart! You’ll have to be quick though—in order to get the boost you’ll have to respond to the request within three minutes. A timer will appear over your pet so you’ll be able to see how much time you have remaining.

The active Pet Request will be forfeited if you switch pets, log out, or run out of time.

What your pet requests will depend on how much you’ve played with them. The more times you fill up their heart, the smarter they will get, and soon they will start making more specific requests, along with a wider variety of requests.

For players that have multiple pets, once you fill up your active pet’s heart, another pet will let you know that they have a request. You can either switch right away to that pet and begin filling up their heart, or you can wait until you are ready to switch. That pet’s request won’t start until you switch to them.[6]

Pet Requests will only appear while the active pet is awake and its Pet Care Heart is not full. Additionally, the following activities will pause any active Pet Request timers or prevent new ones from appearing; Pet Requests can be re-activated by opening and closing the WShop.

The following is a list of possible Pet Requests.
