Some years ago, I had a rather complicated profile on Foo that centered around the doings of Grandefort Castle. After Breeding was introduced, I lost interest and stopped playing. Now I’m back – trying to gather up my old pets as well as some new ones. This time, the story centers around the Balmy Views Retirement Home. Non-neutered pets live in the neighboring village of Pawsandpurs and have jobs working at the Home. A few, of course, have decided to work for the questionable Mr. Klunk.
BALMY VIEWS RETIREMENT HOME
Welcome to Balmy Views Retirement Home: a pleasant retirement community for Pokey’s and neutered pets. This is a tranquil sanctuary for pets who are unable to breed, but would like to live in dignity. Here, beloved pets can while away the hours reminiscing about their lives while enjoying planned activities.
At least, that’s what the brochure says….
But… danger lurks in this quiet sanctuary. Evil, most insidious, threatens the aged inhabitants. Can it be stopped? Only time will tell. Would you like to meet some of the residents?
First we have The General – a pug who was once a commander battling world evil. Now, due to the highly classifies nature of his career, he disguises himself as a retired plumber.This makes most of the other guests avoid him as no one wants to discuss toilets and stoppages. And we can’t forget about
Mallevo – an evil MinPin who disguises his true identity by claiming to be a former grocery store manager (meat department). This makes him quite popular at Balmy Views, as everyone is enthusiastic about food. The guests at Balmy Views are not so enthusiastic about Ethel’s cooking. This cook feels that cabbage is excellent for the digestion – with rather unfortunate gastric results. However, other than the food, meal time at the home is appreciated by all. Eloise, a former exotic dancer regales the guests with stories from her past. She and Sir Babbelot were once quite an item. Sir Babbelot is a bit of a flirt with all the ladies. a former member of MI6, he tends to become quite garrulous and occasionally shares classified secrets when he really should keep his mouth shut. He is quite enamored of Nurse Trinket who resides in Pawsandpurrs Village. Unfortunately, Nurse Trinket is enamored of the local doctor, Jack, who (while feeling the same toward the nurse) is desperately trying to keep his relationship professional. This is a bit tricky, since they have already had a litter of puppies together. And nobody knows what’s happened to Humphrey, the forest ranger. Perhaps he should have chosen a different profession as he gets lost in the woods very easily. He just can’t jump high enough to see the trail signs!Two newcomers have settled into the community: Augusta Blane and Double07. Augusta has fled her career of being a high fashion model to find herself. So far, she has looked in the mirror, but has not found herself. Double07 is on a secret mission. He’s not quite sure what it is, so he must look for clues. I think both kitties should consult The Gypsy – a Maine Coon Cat who is a mysterious (and slightly shady) fortune teller and seller of love potions and spells
