A Guide to Hoarding - All you need to know about hoards!

Introduction
Welcome to my guide! I didn't see anything that explained hoards, so I've decided to make this. It will answer any questions that you may have about hoarding pets. It is in a question-and-answer style so that you can conveniently find whatever you're looking for. If you have any suggestions as to how I can improve this guide, you are more than welcome to PM me.

Q. What is a hoard?

A. A hoard is a group of pets that are consistent to each other. They can be made of one variation of pet (Example: a group of 20 Ricorn Birthday pups), or they can be made of pets with similar traits (Example: a group of dogs that have bobtails).

Q. How do I start my own hoard?

A. First, you need to brainstorm ideas. Is there a certain pet that catches your eye? Do you love three-tailed dogs? Once you have an idea, you need to search for pets that you will add to your hoard. If you want a large hoard, I would suggest choosing something Common; it can be very hard to obtain multiple Uncommon and Rare pets.

Q. That seems so hard! Won't this take forever?

A. The goal to having a successful hoard is trading. You need to work hard to get the pets that you want. Your offers will be rejected. Some people will not want to trade their pets. You just have to keep searching.

Q. Why do people hoard pets?

A. Some people simply like the pet and want a bunch of them. Other people are looking for something to do once they have nearly completed their collection. If you only need three pets in order to complete your entire collection, you will need something to do in the meantime, no?

Q. What if I hoard the same pet that someone else does?

A. It's not a big deal. There are plenty to go around for everyone! Hoarding should never be an extreme competition, and some minds think alike. Someone else may think the same way of a pet that you do yourself. Just keep collecting, and don't sweat it.

Q. I want to hoard something Rare. I'm prepared to do this. Will people get upset with me?

A. I cannot give you a direct answer to this, as it is strictly based on personal opinion. If you like a pet, you are by all means entitled to hoard it. If you want to hoard Bananas, there is no rule that says you cannot. However, some people feel that this is selfish; others don't mind. You can do whatever you'd like to with your pets. If you want to trade them for Rare pets for a hoard, go ahead!

Q. I've looked at every pet on ChickenSmoothie, and I still don't know what I want to hoard! Can you help?

A. Sometimes, hoarding just isn't something that you'd like to do. Some people like it, while others do not. If you need some ideas, here are some different types of hoards that you can try.

Variation (One pet. Ex: Jeweled Sundog)
Design (One design on a variety of pets. Ex: Galaxy pets)
Blanket (One blanket, all variations. Ex: Sorbet dogs)
Artist (Ex: Malk pets)
Event (Ex: St. Patrick's Day)
Pet (Ex: butterfly wolves)
Rarity (Ex: rare pets)
Costume/accessory/theme hoard (Ex: sheep)
Feature (Ex: bobtail dogs)
Year (Ex: 2008 pets)
Date (Ex: Pets adopted on your birthday)

(Thank-you, PastCat, for this wonderful list of suggestions!)

Perhaps a suggestion of common hoards would be in order? Or what different kinds there are?

Some of the most popular (and easiest to build) are:
2nd gens
warriors cats

Other kinds of hoards:
variation (one pet, ex: jeweleled sundog)
design (one design on a variety of pets ex: galaxy pets)
blanket (one blanket, all variations ex: sorbet dogs)
artist (ex: Malk pets)
event (ex: St. Patrick's Day)
pet (ex: butterfly wolves)
rarity (ex: rare pets)
costume/accessory/theme hoard (ex: sheep)
feature (ex: bobtail dogs)
year (ex: 2008 pets)

Nice guide. I, personally think, with not showing people doing this(they are popular people as for you to know), I don't like when people hoard very rares. Why? They aren't existing so much of these(normally because they're rare ._. ), and they hoard even these?! To be serious people, MANY of these users wish for a Dogtag and others just.. Hoard them. There is no fair chance in this game and that's why users started to quit in the last months. So sad. Be strong as they will continue to do this or.. hoping they'll stop.

Huh! All this time I thought I was just collecting butterwolves; I guess I'm hoarding them instead. Does it count as a hoard if your goal is exactly one of each pet?
