okay so if you dont know yet, the stadium undergone some minor change :) instead of Pets running with you, the turkeys are there to replace them.
from the official blog:
So, you thought you knew the Stadium. The adrenaline rush, the photo finish, the bright lights, the tragedy of the banana skin. Pet versus pet. Well, my (feathered) friends, it’s time to think again.
To celebrate Thanksgiving, we invite you to enter the Stadium and pit your athletic might against the leanest, meanest, tastiest raciest Thanksgiving turkeys this side of Pet Society!
That’s right – from tomorrow, the Stadium’s being overrun with some seriously competitive poultry. Each time you race, your usual fellow pet competitors will be replaced by high-speed turkey athletes who will go all out to beat you by a feather’s breadth. Can you take on the might of the racing turkeys?
Do you have what it takes to become Best among Birds?
To experience the thrill of a turkey race, head along to the Pet Society Stadium from Thursday 18 November to see the turkeys in action and take part in a pet vs. turkey racing showdown!
Hurry though, they won’t be around for long!
