Chi Pet is a growing plant widget for your Dashboard. Based on the real plant the Chia Pet, the widget will grow on your computer every 3 days.

But, like a real plant, it needs water and sunlight (not really). When clicking the water droplet button, it feeds your pet for 3 days. A fun idea coupled with great graphics makes the Chi Pet a great widget.

I think this widget is hilarious. It's quite addicting to watch the poor little thing grow and it's even funnier when it kicks over when you forget to water. It's the highlight of my dashboard!

I love it! He has a permanent place in my dashboard!

However, I hope version 1.0 has gotten better than 0.9. I had 0.9 installed, and my chia was doing great, until a crash where I had to reboot, and it killed my chia. I love it though!

One question though: do you feel as if it could be funnier, if the chia was more customizable, i.e. if you wanted to, it could grow white moldy fur like my boyfriend's old chia pet? (okay, so he was sitting in the box for a longer time than recommended! lol) Or it could be a cow, a pig, or another animal? (although the original chia is very cute himself!!!!!)

Cute! The "dead" chia is hilarious too.
