Petpets (sometimes PetPets) are pets for a user's Neopet. A class of items created on September 27, 2000, they can be attached to a Neopet much like Battledome Equipment. Most Petpets can be purchased in official Neopian shops, but some are gained only by other activities, such as using the Cooking Pot.
For a long time, Petpets could not be painted, but this was changed on October 2, 2001 with the introduction of the Petpet Paint Brush, which is used at the Petpet Puddle. Later, on August 3, 2005, the Petpet Lab Ray was introduced. Like the Neopet Lab Ray, the Petpet equivalent can alter a Petpet's colour and other statistics, such as species, level and name. The Petpet even has a chance of being completely destroyed.
A Petpet can also gain levels at the Petpet Battledome and by waking the Turmaculus, but its levels will not be retained if the Petpet is ever removed from its Neopet. In turn, these levels can help the Neopet in the Battledome, acting as an attack multiplier.
There are also Petpetpets, parasites that live on Petpets, which are a pet to the Petpet.
There are currently 487 petpets as of November 2013.
Nowadays, Neopians can use a sub web site called Petpet Park, with talking petpets as characters.

Petpet Protection League
- Main Article: Petpet Protection League
The Petpet Protection League (PPL for short) is a group of Neopians who reward Neopets for taking good care of their Petpet. Each week they select a random species of Petpet and reward users whose Neopets have had them for the longest by paying 10 Neopoints for every day they have been owned. Users who have the oldest of the selected species receive a Trophy as well.
Neopets who take their Petpet to the Petpet Laboratory are not counted in the PPL, as it's viewed as a form of cruelty against Petpets.
Some creatures in Neopia are giant Petpet-like creatures.
