I was so nervous! Like any kitten wishing to be noticed and to come out of their little box and be able to play with other kittens. I had applied before and was unsuccessful (I think I applied like 2/3 times in total!) and was a little apprehensive. I LOVED NEKO PALACE! Their kittens are so beautiful and they appeared to me like a family! I was so happy to even press the “apply” button! The application has some really good questions to get to know you too meow!
I don’t want to make any spoilers so you can enjoy doing it as much as me but a hint … THE MORE THE BETTER! Clearly it’s up to you how much you express but the more information you can give in your answer the better. I learnt this in this application and I expressed myself freely so they could get to know my purrsonality! Essentially think of it as a job application, if you have one line answers they can’t really get to know you miw! =^_^=
Now I am quite a shy kitten until you get to know me so the process was pretty daunting. If you talk regularly to a Palace Pet they can help step you through it and be your support. I owe my support to the gorgeous @echo_hime (Instagram!). They motivated me and supported me the entire time! I am blown away by them and just no words to express the help they gave to me!
So my application was sent and all I had to do was wait for a response… days went past and I was so nervous! Then I got a follow up and had a cute conversation with one of the pets! She was so freaking lovely and gorgeous! It really honed in the family culture that the Palace had and I was even more excited to join! AND I WAS ACCEPTED NYAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! I WAS OVER THE MOON! I WAS SO HAPPY I SQUEELED AND DANCED!
What Happened Next?
Once I was accepted then it all began! I was added to the groups and a cute little profile was made! When you are accepted you are added into a trial kitten phase. Essentially lets you test out being a pet and getting them to know you before you become 100% Palace Pet. I actually adored this as it gave me a chance to really look at the site and kittens differently and let me explore a little more into my kitteny side! I think it’s a real honor to be accepted and having a trial period is like probation for a job: it lets you see if you really do want to be a pet and if you feel comfy (clearly I did mew!)
This was really exciting because you get to play about and use different looks! To me this is exciting because I ADORE dressing up in cosplay or themes! And around the time I was accepted was Neko Palace birthday! WOOOOW! Suffice to say I joined in (see 1st image in article!)
Along with the photos you can send in generally when you like the themes really get all the pets to have fun together and share in a special moment together as well as getting the public involved in some as well! It’s such a GREAT idea! You can even start doing articles like me and others on the site where you can voice your point of view and have conversations with other pets/members of the website. It really is more of an enjoyable job to me than just any modelling site!
As an example you can: submit photos or articles anytime you like, Talk to palace pets in group chats and live chats, Look at personal galleries, View awesome YouTube videos and more! Being a pet is like your own social media for kittens! I am so glad I was accepted and got invited to join for real because I have met so many incredible kittens in my time mew!
