Pet of the Month (POTM), introduced on August 29th, 2007, was a monthly program in which a Webkinz was chosen to be specially featured for a month. Information about POTM can be found in the Newspaper.

If you adopted a pet within the month they were featured, you were gifted special POTM extras. If you had already adopted a pet before it was POTM, you would not earn any extras, but could have still participated in POTM activities in Today's Activities.

Pet of the Month Songs began to be produced starting with the Alley Cat, who was POTM in April 2009.


Activities, Announcements

Having a Pet of the Month should be very important. Announcements can be spotted in the Newspaper if it gets retired, next month's Pet of the Month, and this month's Pet of the Month. Not every day includes a Pet of the Month activity. Every first weekend gives you a bonus 100 KinzCash if you have Pet of the Month and go to Daily Activities. The Pet of the Month can have a Quick Draw for pet of the month items, can do bonus Hourly Events, and you can get free special food depending on the Pet of the Month. If you have a Pet of the Month, it will sometime say Lil'Kinz Pig Owners Only: Spin the Wheel of the Month or Big Kinz Cheeky Monkey Owners Only: Spin the Wheel of Wishes! Those two events can be played more often than other users in the month! 

Loot Bag and Prizes

Adopting a Pet of the Month awards a player with a special Pet of the Month item, a Secret Recipe food, a Wish Token, and a W Shop Coupon. Users who adopt a Pet of the Month with a song also receive a download of its song.

Glitches, Issues

There were also some glitches about the Pet of the Month. When the Pet of the Month begun Ganz had many problems so they gave the people who adopted the Pet of the Month for that month (Big Kinz Frog) would've got an extra 2000 KinzCash because of it. On April 1, 2008 there was a glitch that the Lil'Kinz Cocker Spaniel was the Pet of the Month for May 2008 but after all it was uploaded later in the week and it said that it was the Big Kinz Panda. Also in early April 2008, people who adopted the Pet of the Month while that time (Big Kinz Pink Poodle) was missing their Pet of the Month Item. Apparently in mid-April 2008, the Carnival Strength Tester came out and the people who were missing their Pet of the Month Items would've got it.


Your pet wouldn't be Pet of the Month if it was retired (because it costs lots of money). It was surprising of what happened on June 11, 2008, when the Elephant Webkinz retired while being Pet of the Month as a shock because it was the only Pet of the Month to be retired  while its month but so far it will be the same way. That pet is the only pet to retire after or while being Pet of the Month! No other Pet of the Month other than the Elephant was retired!

Back to the beginning:
Don't log your pet in if you know when you know it's Pet of the Month! Don't be sad when your Pet of the Month time is over because you may get another one soon or have another one!
