Gamers cannot download “Can Your Pet?” because it's a free Flash game that they play online via a Web browser. Players can download the sequel, “Can Your Pet? Returns,” for Android or iOS devices via the Google Play or Apple iTunes stores.
In “Can Your Pet?,” players care for a virtual pet, feeding, cleaning, playing with and decorating it. The player uses a computer mouse to interact with the pet. For example, she clicks and drags the food icon over to the pet to feed it. When playing ball, the player needs to time the mouse clicks to hit the ball back to the pet. “Can Your Pet?” features animated violence when the player least expects it.
“Can Your Pet? Returns” plays in much the same way as its predecessor. Players still feed, clean, train and decorate the pet, however, they use the touch screen controls on their mobile Android devices to do so. This sequel gives players the added benefit of playing on the go, and there is a new ending that they can achieve. “Can Your Pet? Returns” is free to download, but players have the option of making in-game purchases. The game still contains cartoon violence, and it's rated T for teen.
