They could totally be in the same litter, right?

Hmm....
On one hand the PPS and BBS tags do get in the way of some dressups. Throwing a tag on it could do the same thing in a minor fashion.
From a coding/setup stand point, I'd think making a new rarity would be faster to set up than open your art program and paste the new tag on every single store pet. (especially if you lost the originals of an older one, oops?)

Different rarity tags would help too but I'm honestly 100% for either solution.

Speaking of rarity, do you want to trade? They're both rare. My rare for your rare. It's totally a fair trade and they're both the same lineart :)

Mine's even a little older so it's totally good deal! Ehhh? Ehhhhhhh? Yeah, I'll see myself out thanks XD

Huh, that's a good point. For some reason I forgot that adding a tag to the store pet images would require manually doing so haha

Maybe I'll figure out how to word the non-image-based solution and then put that into the first post as a potential solution (but I won't edit the poll since I don't want to risk resetting the votes after so long)

Also, that pet comparison is my favorite so far as I think that is very, VERY likely to actually happen. We've had quite a few store pets go rare; I think fewer and fewer users (other than new users) are surprised when popular store pets start out rare instead of very rare.

Here's a mistake that I actually made (posted a while back in this thread) (thankfully, no harm came of it; first link = they were the one who initiated the offer, second link = me sending the trade back asking if the user was sure they didn't want to add more on my side because their side had store pets, but they accepted anyway despite my message):

Here are some of their littermates that I was thinking of when I first saw their trade:

All available during August 2014. All with unknown rarity tags at the time of the trade.
Was your pet adopted December 18, any year, or December 24, 2011? It is most likely an older pet! CLICK ME to identify your pet!

Yup. I got a story like that too. My sister was having a rough day so I sent her a trade with just random Christmas pets. You know, just normal CS pets from the Advent calendar and a few regular adopts. Just mindless clicking on a few extras I had at the time. None of them had a rarity tag yet.

Turns out... these aren't Christmas pets. :oops:

We've had ones with weird wings before though so I though nothing of it until I realized my mistake.

Seriously, many store pets are getting more and more similar to other normal or event adopts.

I often have to go to my store pet group to recheck what is what and what even is a store pet.

I love that we're getting extravagant non-store pets, but we're had almost 10 years' worth of bimonthly store pet sets... I happen to have a fantastic memory but I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority + my memory is only put to use when I actively try to commit something to memory anyway lol

(tangentially related: I was playing DND with four of my friends and we went into combat. The DM drew our positions but wasn't thinking and marked the 6+ enemies' positions with X's even though they all had different HP levels and different skills. So we started getting confused about which enemy had which HP level and which enemy could do what kind of attack and I was the only person in this group who was keeping all 6+ enemies straight before the DM realized numbers would be better than X's LOL

inside joke: the DND newbie [that's me] has a hidden skill of OP memory

now imagine a CS newbie coming in and trying to remember all the different store pets)

    the classic example of which one is the store pet:

    ImageImage

    seriously, i don't even know how long it took me to memorize which one is the store pet and which one is the halloween release? the store pet looks ghostly and the halloween pet is similar to the store pets of that time.

    mark 'em, please.

Support for the reasons stated above.

I feel like the similarity between some Store pets and normal pets might be taken advantage of by some people with less than savory intent when trading with newer players. Not to mention that, like the stories above show, even some older players get tripped up and confused, and sometimes aren't sure which is which.

Please mark them, I can't remember which sleipnir is the Store pet either 😂

Edit: To potentially make the impact of another label on the pet less annoying, perhaps "Store pet" could be abbreviated, or maybe use some other method, like a symbol. Just a thought.

Store pets now have a link on their profile pages explaining their status c:

sometimes the depression, the anxiety
comes and wraps around my chest
so tight I can hardly breathe

how can I talk about my feelings,
when my demons have sunk their claws
into my lungs, and left me here to bleed
