Thank you to everyone for their patience the past week or so. As you probably noticed, Marapets had over a week of loading problems, which caused a lot of weird glitches. Several of our hard disks broke at the same time and the disks they fail over to were not as fast as we're used to. To avoid any problems we've had in the past, we closed right away and tried our best to find the best long term solution and install/prepare everything in 48 hours. It took nearly 69 hours but I had to have some sleep ha!

We had plans to move away from all of our last remaining SATA disks (even at 15K RPM they are still so much slower and less reliable than SSD) but they were only here as back up.The plan was to move all of our servers from Canada to the UK in 2020 and replace it then once our Canada lease was up. Last week changed all of this, as we needed Marapets fixed ASAP. We've now extended the lease in Canada for another 24 months and completed all of the upgrades we had planned for 2020 in Canada. Marapets has been hosted in North America for the past 15 years because the majority of players are from there and it meant a faster site for those players. These days, with Cloudflare and fibre connections, it makes very little difference and is more of a hassle to have everything so far away from us.

Don't worry if that made no sense to you, all that matters is that a) we have new hardware and software now and hopefully we'll be good now for many years and b) it was a total success and we should be running the best we ever had.

We will start our Halloween events as planned shortly. Those who changed their pets to Midnight for free training should keep them midnight - midnight is a halloween theme costume and it will be included in Halloween free training.

The Basil, Paffuto, Reese and Tantua can now wear the Thunder Costume.



The Double or Nothing game has been updated with brand new artwork.

All Midnight pets will receive FREE TRAINING at the Gym and Elite Gym and FREE LESSONS at the School until October 15th.

There seems to be a lot of confusion recently about changes to the Marapets Layout. Over the next couple of months, Marapets will be becoming more Mobile Friendly. Players on mobiles, tablets and desktops will all be able to play Marapets just as easy as each other. For the past 15 years, we've been 100% made for desktop computers. It has taken us many years to gradually change the site, so that it works well on mobile. Some of these changes are already here but many are not. When it is finished, hopefully by the end of the year, it will be clear why we have been making changes around the site. Until then, there may be the ocasional mis-aligned text, some text that is too big, some that is too small, random white space, etc. None of this should effect the way that Marapets can be played - the site will still work as it should, it just may not look it's best. If you find any parts of the site where the design makes it difficult to play, please report it on the Help Forums. In the mean time, please be patient with us - the end result will be worth it!

Basil can now wear the Baby Costume and the Minipet Astro has been updated to the newer design.

Summer is nearly over in Marada but the Apollo, Kissy, Pyri, Spoopy, Sugarmites, Dapurtle, Kuork, Scorpi, Sue and Yoop minipets can now wear the Ball of Summer Yarn.




We have a new Summer Layout - we finally have all 4 seasons in Marada! We have also changed the site's layout - it's much wider now and the 'reminder' box has moved. It will take a few more months for the whole site to be finished but we're working on hard on making Marapets more responsive, so that it fits better and is easier to play on all browsers and devices. This means you may experience mis-aligned or messy pages here and there as we make the switch. If you notice any that are really bad, please let us know on the Help Forums.



The Ice Cream shop has six new items restocking.

We have improved the way the site layout handles Pages. The new system is much smarter and fits better with the site design. It handles larger pages much better and is easier for those on mobile to use. There is also the option to enter and skip to the exact page you need to find by entering the number at the beginning. This was a huge update, editing many old parts of the site so if you find any places where pages exist and the page isn't working as it should, please let us know in Help Forums.


The Straya can now wear the Headless, Love, Negative and Rainbow Costumes.



We have updated the artwork for Bagels - some of the oldest items on the site.

Our Maintenance is now complete and you should finally notice the difference. Marapets is 15 Years Old and is pretty huge in terms of content and data. Any small server hardware or software upgrade here is a massive undertaking but this was the biggest change in many, many years. We upgraded both the hardware, software and network MaraPets uses. It has taken months of hard work to make sure as much was done without closing the site and without much downtime or errors.

For those who are interested, MaraPets was still running on a version of PHP5 (released in 2012, supported until 2014) and although we have had many upgrades of hardware and software since then, we had to finally update everything and bring it to 2019! This meant much of the site had to be re-coded, servers needed newer operating systems and our newer database software required much of the site to be changed to be compatible. To update 15 years of MaraPets in less than 6 weeks was not easy!

We would like to apologise for the last 48 hours of random Server Errors and issues some players have had. In hindsight we shoud have closed for longer - we estimated how much time we could complete the move in but didn't take into account how tired/bad we would feel doing it all so fast on very little sleep. The move is complete now and we should be running better than ever! It will still take another week or so to make sure everything is 100% working - MaraSites for example are still disabled - but it shouldn't be anything major now and we should be running better than we have ever.

As always, we'd like to thank everyone for their patience while we made the move, those who helped test and the Account Upgrade buyers who have helped keep Marapets constantly improving. To celebrate the move, you can all visit the Vault and use the code I-LOVE-PICKLE-JUICE-LIKE-I-LOVE-SERVER-ERRORS to receive a FREE gift from us.


The Flab, Lorius, Mordo, Murfin, Nino and Oglue can now wear the Leopard Costume.

As promised, the limited edition/restricted pet potion flash sale in the Account Upgrades Shop is back and will most likely sell out today or tomorrow. As we had originally said that they would retire 20th August, a very, very limited number is back on sale for those who missed out. Once these are gone, they will retire and will not be back on sale here.



All Light pets will receive FREE TRAINING at the Gym and Elite Gym and FREE LESSONS at the School until September 15th.

The Addow, Justin, Kronk, Leido, Newth and Nino can now wear the Light Costume that is still on sale at Account Upgrades.

MaraPets will be down for Scheduled Maintenance later this week. We have been working for months on preparing for this move so that it is as smooth as possible. We are moving to new, faster servers with new versions of operating system, PHP and database software. Our current database server has an internal operating system glitch which at times, makes us crash. There isn't anything we can do about it apart from reboot once it happens, but there isn't always someone online to do it. It happened today and as I was asleep and missed it, we had over 2 hours of downtime. This is one of the many reasons for the move but those who have been temporarily moved to the new system this week to help test have all noticed how much faster the site is! We will keep you updated and give plenty of notice before we close and we estimate that the maintenance would take 6 to 12 hours.

The Mutant Ideus, Justin, Mordo, Osafo, Paffuto, Viotto, Vixen, Walee, Yakubi, Yuni and Zetlian have been updated to the newer design. All 77 pets now have the updated Mutant Costume design - we hope you like the changes!
