As Mania pointed out, however, she was aware of the issue and was working actively to get the site back online. It seems like she's knocked the right heads, too, because Petopia...

Loading up the main page gives the message above, and going straight to the redirect gives a "this site has been suspended" notice.But don't wo...

Our favorite Hunter (although BRK comes close), Mania, has had some help from the Wrath beta, and has now updated the great Petopia with all the new pets seen in Northrend so far.
