About Pawzative Attitude

Pawzative Attitude is a fan site for the PF Magic games Petz.  Don’t know what Petz is?  Read more about the silly old games that so many of us love here.  Then come join us, the games are basically abandonware at this point and can be downloaded for free from various sources!

I first got into the petz community around 1997 when I found a free download of Petz II adoption center and spent a few hours downloading it (dial-up…what can I say?).  I saved my money to buy the full version of Petz II, then a bit later got Petz 4.

Eventually, I decided to build myself a website.  I specifically remember carrying around a folder with drawings of how I might design the website (Geocities, of course) inside all the way back in 1999.  The site was likely horrible, but it was originally called Sport Kennelz and Cattery after my kitten at the time.  It was quickly changed to Pet Pawz Kennel and Cattery with the logo being a paw print with the letters PAWZ in each of the toes.

Around 2003, I switched from Pet Pawz to Liberty Acrez, then later just Liberty, borrowing the name I used in real life with my rabbits and guinea pigs when I showed them.  My prefix at that time was Liberty and my colors were red, white, and blue and most of my site layouts were various stars and stripes.

Eventually, I wanted something unique for my petz that was different from real life, so I decided sometime around 2009 to come up with a unique name and as I was struggling with mental health, I ended up choosing a new name – Pawzative Attitude – one part cute/fun name, one part a reminder that I play petz as a stress reliever and to make friends as a support network.

I’m now a premier judge for Schnauzers, Siamese, and Tabbies as well as a Companion, Obedience, and Aptitude judge in the Petz Kennel Club.  I’m also active at Whiskerwick and Duke’s Group.

Nearly all of the things on this site are for Petz 4, however, I do have Petz 5 and any petz, adoptions, litters, etc. which are for use in Petz 5 only will have a Petz 5 logo.  Fortunately, this isn’t such a big deal now that Reflet has released the converter – I’m fine with you adopting and converting.

I still have Dogz and Catz (original), Oddballz, Petz II, and Petz 3, but I primarily use those for my own personal play and don’t use them for the website, so few if anything will be on here for that.  Feel free to check out some of the stuff I have for download for those games on Wayback Petz though!
