Nannybots in Pet Society

Yesterday, Playfish released "Nannybots," that will feed, clean and play with your pet 24 hours a day. Nannybots are sold at the Gadget and Furniture Shops for 400 coins. Playfish has thrown in a free battery good for the first three days, but if you want to recharge it, you have to fork over some real money--5 Playfish coins.

My pet Sushi got a chance to meet the Nannybot during a visit to a friend. The scene above, which looks like he's being hit with a toaster, actually raises his health level.

Here are two more scenes of the Nannybot tending to my pet:

If you're going on vacation or are just too busy to log into the game, the Nannybot may be a good solution. It will prevent that awful moment of seeing your pet tired, hungry and surrounded by flies and poop. That is, if you really care this much about your imaginary pet.

Personally, this is a reminder that I need to spend more time with my real pet. I'm currently on a three-day break and my nine-year-old cat, the poor thing, is home all alone. Guilt, guilt, guilt.
