Pet of the Month (POTM), introduced on August 29th, 2007, is a monthly program in which a Webkinz is chosen to be specially featured for a month.
If you adopt a pet within the month they are featured, you are gifted special POTM extras. If you already own a pet before it's POTM, you can not earn those extras, but could can still participated in POTM activities in Today's Activities.
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 sometimes 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.
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.
