Classic Petz 'Pedia Wiki

In all Petz games released since Petz II, petz who are neglected, not played with, and not cared for may run away. When you click the Pick a Pet button and hover your cursor over their picture, there will be a red stamp on it that says "Runaway". If you try to play with the pet, a message will pop up explaining what has happened and the pet will disappear from your list of petz.

Runaway Petz can be rescued from this status by various hexing-related means, but the only game in which runaway Petz can return through normal gameplay is Petz 5. There is a bulletin board at the Adoption Center that will display petz that have run away. Clicking them will award you with another chance to care for them properly.
