Ah! We're still standing!
Please allow me to extend my deepest apologies for this recent unexpected downtime. We experienced several technical issues with our server, which are now resolved. All of Furvilla's data is safe, including your log-in streaks.
The Tiger Eye Peak Festival has been extended once more to January 7th at 11:59pm.
Please accept this following gift with our apologies. A fine trophy for your account, as well as some supplies to help you get started with our new update!
We decided to go ahead and do our previously scheduled downtime after the site came back online. So without further ado, I am so delighted to announce the expansion to the Animal Husbandry career!
Firstly, please allow me to introduce you to Warren, who has taken up residence in the vast wilderness just outside of Furvilla. You can access Warren's Forest through the career page of a villager who knows Animal Husbandry.
"Hello, Furvilla! I am happy to know you!"
Warren's Forest is home to thousands of animals in Furvilla, and he has created a secure and nurturing environment for them, safe from both snakes and recyclers. His forest is always open, for there is plenty of room for all animals who wish to live there.
Through your villager's Animal Husbandry career page, you may visit the forest and donate pets. Based on color rarity, you will receive a very special leaf. Save up enough leaves, and you will be able to spend them on some fabulous treasures in the Cottage Shoppe!
More items may be added from time to time to the Shoppe, so please do keep donating pets and saving up leaves. I would also like to note, that if some items in the shop seem priced quite high, remember that this is a permanent feature and with dedication goals can be achieved.
Pet donations will be shown on a leader board. No prizes come from this board, it is strictly for fun and friendly competition. Each villager will show up on the board independently, so if you have more than one villager with the Animal Husbandry career, please make sure you are donating pets with the one you would like to appear on the board.
Later on, new achievements will be unlockable based on pet donations. Don't hesitate to donate pets early, as you will still be able to collect applicable achievements when they release.
Other changes and updates:
- All animals now show color-coded rarities, indicating color and species. This color coding now also applies to all site items.
- Hallowed Potion and Breeding Potion now work from the inventory and on a pet attached to a villager.
- Revita Bite Pet Treats are now usable on a pet in your inventory.
- Pumpkin Treats now instantly domesticate a wild animal in a stable. The recipe can now be found in the Cozy Cookery.
- Town Hall link drop-downs have been re-arranged, popups concerning breeding items have been slightly redesigned for a better user experience.
- And the big news everyone wants to hear... Breeding odds have been doubled. Charges will remain at 100 per account per day for one week. During that time, we will be monitoring breeding results. After one week, charges will be reduced to 50 per account to reduce fatigue. Breeding odds will then be raised again accordingly. Our goal is to provide a more rewarding experience and help you to complete menageries.
This update brings me to some more news...
Serpent Festival Notice
Now that animals have a safe and permanent home in Furvilla, the Serpent will no longer be accepting them during the yearly Quetzal Palace festival. In fact, the Serpent has proven to be a picky beast who will only accept different items each year from now on.
In the past, the mechanics of the festival allowed players to hoard mass amounts of items a full year in advance to give to the Serpent, creating a situation where new and casual players were at an extreme disadvantage. RNG odds had to be adjusted to compensate for the large amount of donations, and the end result made for a very frustrating experience for every type of player.
We are aware of folks who have saved items for the festival. Please feel free to scrap your equipment, and donate your pets, as these are the designed permanent ways to sink those item types. We are developing ways to use scrap, leaves from donation, and many other items on the site for the festival. We are also being very mindful of all player types, and are relying less on RNG.
Our goal is to encourage players to play during festivals to reap rewards, and we would like to be a bit more generous with what you receive when participating. We feel the changes will make for a much more enjoyable event.
That's all for now!
Thank you very much to each of you for your patience. We have a lot of new content (code related, believe it!) planned for 2020. Our first year as site owners has been rocky with unexpected highs and lows, but we are not going anywhere. We will continue to work to make Furvilla a fun place to be, for anyone who wants to be in Furvilla.
I want to take this space here to thank Owner-Quinn for all of his hard work, time and love in coding these new features. He is a good squirrel. <3

Hello everyone! As we prepare for the upcoming scheduled downtime on Friday, January 3rd at 10pm FVT, I would like to announce some changes to the following site content, which we are implementing for game balancing purposes.
When downtime begins, the following changes will be made:
- Battle Moos will be removed from "Steeds and More" in Olde Foxbury. These pets will be obtainable via a new method after the update.
- Hallowed Potion and Fancy Plant Drink Recipes will be removed from the recycle shop. These items will be obtainable elsewhere after the update.
- All restocking pets in all village-specific pet shops will have their prices increased.
These changes have already been made:
The following pets have had their color rarities reduced to uncommon:
A Stray Chow Chow
The following pets have had their color rarities reduced to common:
Four Leaf Irish Hare
Winter's Majesty Stag
New Year Finale Firework Ferret
Spring Garden Grazer
May Pole Ribbon Noodle
Finally, all pets have been removed from the quest pool. If you see a requested pet in quests, please report it. Thank you.
As a reminder, the downtime will last a minimum of 2 hours as we implement and test new site features. We do not have an estimate of when the site will be back up. The TEP festival will be extended by 1 day to help compensate for the loss of time. We do greatly appreciate your patience and think it will be worth the wait. <3
Thank you for reading!

Happy New Year, Furvilla!
I hope everyone is enjoying 2020 so far! A bright new decade shines before you, which path will you take?
We have a small token for you to help ring in the new year with a BANG - Captured Fireworks.
CLICK HERE TO REDEEM YOURS!
When this keepsake is held by a villager, it will provide 1 Warrior charge and 1 Explore charge. How versatile.
This one is on us, but if you'd like to horde a few more, they are available at the Traveler's Fair Exchange as a restocking item.
Speaking of the Traveler, I've been informed that the following items have moved back to a restocking rotation in the Fair Exchange: The Traveler Stamp, The Fair Exchange Mail-Order Form Blueprint, and The Fair Exchange Magazine Ad.
Reminders and Upcoming Scheduled Downtime
At midnight tonight, our Black Friday Baublins will end their breeding cycles for good. All 3rd Annifursary events and box drops will end at that time as well. We hope you've enjoyed these mini events!
We have some big plans coming up for this month, and I absolutely cannot wait to share them with you. I wonder if the Oracle would give you a clue?
There will be a scheduled downtime on Friday, January 3rd at 10pm Furvilla time to implement new site features. We do not know how long it will last, but we anticipate a few hours. Please plan accordingly.
We will be extending the Tiger Eye Peak Festival for an additional day to compensate for this downtime.
Happy New Year, and THANK YOU for being a part of Furvilla!

Hello everyone and welcome to the fourth annual Snow Festival! It’s wonderful to see so many familiar faces, I’m thrilled to have all of you joining us again this year. But for all those newcomers, let me introduce myself, my name is Polaria, and I'm the mayor of Tigereye Peak. Soo...on behalf of my village and all its residents, we're excited to share this year’s Snow Festival with you! Now everyone grab some cocoa and cookies and have a seat, we have lots to talk about.
Every year the snow fairies come out of hiding play with the residents of Tigereye Peak and help us greet the chilly winter season! We've encouraged them to travel far and wide across Furvilla, so you'll be able to celebrate with them too! Each fairy has a special ability that'll bring a boon to your villagers. The abilities vary from giving you a cute holiday item to improving your village someway.
-Snow Festival Sticker Fairy: Grants you 1 random special Holiday Magic Chibi Sticker.
-Snow Festival Bell Fairy: Adds 10% max durability to equipment it blesses (Legacy only).
-Snow Festival Plush Fairy: Will bless you with one random non-magical plush.
-Snow Festival Frozen Leaf Fairy: Grants 1 extra item for your next 10 Explore turns.
-Snow Festival Gingerbread Fairy: Adds 10% max durability to any structure.
-Snow Festival Feast Fairy: Will bless you with 1 special holiday food item.
-Snow Festival Hot Cocoa Fairy: Grants potency to Equipment (up to 130%)
-Snow Festival Ice Fairy: Blesses your inventory with one extra slot.
-Snow Festival Mistletoe Fairy: Blesses you with one random minipet companion (C, UC, and R)
-Snow Festival Snowflake Fairy: Adds one domestication point onto the animal it blesses.
-Snow Festival Star Fairy: Summons a random Fairy friend, or if you’re lucky, maybe a special item.
-Snow Festival Snow Pet Fairy: Summons a winter flurry to bring you 1 random Snow Pet (all rarities are available)
The Snow Festival Candle Fairy is no longer dropping and will keep its 2018 Keepsake stock!
All of this talk of fairies has reminded me of a story... You know it was a Frozen Leaf Fairy that led the founder of Tigereye Peak to the mountain where we all reside. In the cold of the night, Samuel and his exploration party were ready to give up. But then there was a beautiful golden light, and Samuel followed it to the caves and mountain crags where we live now. Because of this, you often see Snow Festival trees topped with a golden tiger -- a tiger, because Samuel was a tiger, and golden, because of the Frozen Leaf Fairy's beautiful glow.
Fairies will befriend you while you explore and fight in the special festival battleground. You'll encounter them easily at first, but as you collect a lot of fairies, they will slowly become more rare to encounter. But don’t you worry your pretty little heads, this resets every even hour.
Looks like some of our villagers are getting into the spirit of the holiday too!
Click the stickers to see the full villager images!
There are so many cute outfits that are available this year! One of the fairies will give you one of their Magic Stickers if you ask it nicely enough then voila, a brand new look!
And joining those adorable little creatures above, this year we have the Patched Stone Villagers! Patched Stones can be found while exploring and by your Warriors in the special festival battleground.
Click the Stones to see the full villager images!
With all the snow that has been drifting down into the other villages, perhaps you'd like to make a new friend?! The Snow Pet population has simply exploded now that the Festival has come! During the festival, these mythical snow creatures breed quite fast, with cool-downs of only two days. However, once January is over, they will no longer be breedable. Please keep that in mind! (Snow Pets will be breedable until January 31st)
Oh my! I almost forgot, you can get this new set of wonderful holiday goodies from the Feast Fairies. (last year’s food items are also still available)
Thank you for having a cup of cocoa with me, I love having company over. And remember, all of us here at Tigereye Peak hope you enjoy the Snow Festival!
-All festivities end on January 4th 2020 at 11:59pm FV Time..
-Snow Pet Mini-Pets have a 2 Day Cooldown until 11:59 PM on January 31st, at which time they become unbreedable and retired.
-Fairies are obtained from the Explore career, and begin with a 20% drop rate, decreasing by 1% with every fairy found to a 1% drop rate. This resets at the beginning of every even numbered hour. Fairies will drop until the end of January 4th.
-Fairies are also available in a special Snow Festival Battleground called the King’s Parlour!
Time to party my furiends!!! The Jingle Chicken demands it.

Furvilla's detectives have been hard at work behind the scenes to solve the case of the missing 2019 Harvest Carnival trophy. What crook could be responsible?
Don't worry, they've been apprehended.
The Royal Fox took it (of course!) As punishment, they are giving up part of their leftover Halloween candy to everyone on the site. The unfortunate thing is the candy is Boomallows which are tad stale, but it was all they had left.
It was totally the Fox's fault and no one else on staff. I promise. All the Fox's fault.
