A pet is a non-combat NPC loyal to a player that generally requires a certain level in Summoning to own. Typically, a player must raise a pet to maturity by having it follow them. Many pets can also be fed and interacted with. Most pets do not serve a purpose other than decoration; however, some pets are used in quests and have other additional benefits.
A player may only have one pet, familiar, or NPC (e.g. Zanik, or the Zanaris choir) following them at one time. Players can manage pets while active through the familiar interface, by using food on them, by left-clicking, and with direct interaction by right-clicking.
Pets that exist as objects may be stored in the bank or inventory, and follow the player when dropped. Other pets are automatically stored in the Customisation interface and can be called to follow the player at any time. Players can store up to 30 pets in the menagerie of a player-owned house (with the highest-level pet houses). Unlike familiars, pets may be brought into Summoning-free zones.
[edit | edit source]
Many pets require an appropriate Summoning level to be obtained, raised, and kept. With some exceptions, such as god birds for protection in the God Wars Dungeon, these pets have no real use other than decoration, or a way to show the player's killcount and/or Summoning level.
Caring for pets[edit | edit source]
When a pet is first obtained, it is in its lowest growth stage and grows as it follows the player, with the exception of several pets which only have one growth stage such as the broav.
A player can monitor a pet's growth and hunger in the Summoning menu. Younger pets become hungrier faster than their adult counterparts, but the frequency of feeding does not affect a pet's growth rate.
Unlike other pets, kittens must be stroked and fed regularly or they run away. Once they reach adult stage, they no longer need to be fed.
At 100% growth, the pet matures into its next form. Pets can have up to three growth stages. Legendary pets obtained from Solomon's General Store can be interacted with and can be fed different types of food that can also be obtained from the store, which speeds up their growth significantly.
Pets that hatch from eggs need to be incubated before they hatch, which requires them to be placed in an egg incubator found in the Pet shops in Taverley and Yanille. Players receive a chat box notification when the egg has hatched. Any pet hatched in an incubator remains there until the player chooses to retrieve it. Pet shop owners are also the only NPCs that sell specific food for pets.
A player may speak with a pet once they are 10 or more Summoning levels above the required Summoning level to obtain that pet. Communication with pets above the level of 90 is possible: the monkey can be spoken to if the player wears the monkeyspeak amulet from Monkey Madness, and the TzRek-Jad is naturally capable of speech. Players with 99 Summoning can communicate with a chameleon after using the cape's right click "boost" option to temporarily achieve level 100 Summoning, and they can also communicate with a baby dragon by using the stats power-up in a Clan Citadel battlefield to boost Summoning from 99 to 109.
Pets that are stored in the 'Customisations' interface function differently from other pets. These are separated into five categories: Follower, Legendary, Companion, Boss, and Skilling. These do not need any feeding, although legendary pets can be given treats to make them grow more quickly.
Object pets[edit | edit source]
These pets exist as objects. When dropped, they follow the player. If a player dies while their pet is following them, it disappears and the player has to find a new one.

Solomon's General Store pets[edit | edit source]
Summoning your pet[edit | edit source]
All Solomon's General Store pets are accessed and customized through the pet interface. This interface can be accessed via two ways: by right-clicking the summoning icon on the action bar and selecting "pet interface," or by opening the customisations interface and selecting the "pets" tab. Pets can also be summoned without entering the pet interface by right-clicking the summoning icon on the action bar and selecting "summon pet."
Renaming your pet[edit | edit source]
All Solomon's General Store pets can be renamed via the pet interface. Currently, the legendary and companion pets can be renamed to one of the following names:
|Available pet names|
|Mr Punchy||Mr Stampy||Ms Punchy||Ms Stampy||Nemea|
|Available pet names|
Recolouring your pet[edit | edit source]
Most legendary pets and some companion pets have the option to be recoloured on certain parts of their model.
Companion pets[edit | edit source]
Companion pets may have 16 colour variations and no growth stages. Most companion pets have a unique emote that can be performed by interacting with it by right-clicking the Summoning icon on the action bar (near the minimap in legacy interfaces). Companion pets are also able to override familiars.

Use and reception[edit | edit source]
When pets were first released, many players complained that pets still required food even when fully grown, unlike the cats, which required no feeding once a kitten had grown up. This was explained as stress on the server as having a pet or familiar out all the time would inevitably slow them down. This is also the reason why timers are implemented and no familiars are visible in high player density areas such as the Grand Exchange. Pets being high maintenance was too much bother to some players that would likely have the ability to own the higher level pets and wouldn't consider keeping them out other than for passive activities. This was especially true for pets with non-stackable food of which is currently the majority. Familiars however filled the gap that many thought pets would take, as skill/combat aids and beasts of burden, leaving pets largely ignored for lack of any ability.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Initially, players could have mature god birds of differing gods. God bird ownership was initially limited to one bird for a time, but with the introduction of the menagerie, it became possible to own all three God birds at once.
- Zamorak hawks and Saradomin owls prevent warriors from said allegiances attacking you while in the God Wars Dungeon. This can be extremely useful for players who do not wish to be forced to wear a particular armour showing allegiance to said groups.
- Eek, the reward for completing the 2009 Hallowe'en Event, could be considered the first pet allowed to non-members. However, because Eek won't follow you, she could be considered similar to a pet rock or pet fish. Eek can also be put into the menagerie, where the player has the option to 'Interact' with her, resulting in the same dialogue.
- Eek also became the first F2P pet in OSRS as well, after the release of the 2018 Halloween event.
- Players originally had a limit on the number of pets they could own. This started with 2 pets of different types at level 1 Summoning, along with 2 more for every ten levels starting at level 11. However, the limit on different types of pets was removed on 16 January 2012.
- Prior to the introduction of Summoning, the only pets in Gielinor were cats, fish and pet rocks.
- On 5 December 2016, a bug allowed multiple pets to be summonable. A hotfix made right-clicking pets without owners to be deleted.
- The pet name "Nuke" may be a reference to the pet cat in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.
- When attempting to rename or recolour an interface pet while the options are locked for them the messages "This pet can not be renamed." and "This pet cannot be recoloured" will respectively be shown in the chatbox. These messages can only be seen through exploiting a bug in the Customisations interface.
