Ah, the little plant/potter geegaw known as the Chia Pet. I don't know what meteor the plant came from, but aren't those planters cute? Relive the cuteness with Chi Pet (not affiliated with the Chia Pets of Joseph Enterprises) in your Dashboard. This little widget provides a couple of days of fun as you click the droplet to "grow" your pet's fur. Neglect the pet, and the plant dies. Nobody said life was easy, even for a bunch of pixels. To be honest, the growth cycle isn't that great.
