Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus


webkinz cheatsIf you were holding on to a Domino Cat to adopt it in November as the Pet of the Month, we have some unfortunate news for you.  Ganz has changed the POTM for November from the Domino Cat to the Webkinz Walrus.  
 
After noticing the change on the retailer site this weekend, our Partner Store, Ameriwade, who had just received their shipment of Domino Cats, contacted their Sales Rep today to confirm.  According to the Sales Rep, the official announcement Ganz made last month that the Domino Cat was going to be the POTM for November was an "error."  The current official word is that the Walrus is the correct pet.
 
If you're looking to add a Walrus to your Webkinz family, please consider shopping at Ameriwade.  Ameriwade features $5-flat rate shipping to the USA and Canada, no matter how large your order is, and a portion of every sale made online at www.Ameriwade.com goes to supporting Webkinz Insider.

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Webkinz Walrus

WOW! After all their mistakes and glitches, you would think they would just go for it instead of having more mud on their faces!

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

Aww man, I feel so bad for all those who already bought the Domino Cat.

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

wow..... wow....... this is horrible!!!!!!!!!
i have the domino cat and was exicited to have a pet fo the month that i don't already have online i guess i will just have to wait awhile more *sigh*

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

I ordered two domino cats from ebay for November.

Not cool.

Thankfully I like the cats, but Ganz should still stick by what they said.

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

Bummer! I have one and was really excited to adopt it in Nov. Maybe they will think about changing it again and having both in November for all the people who bought one.

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

I also feel bad for those that already purchased the cat...but I'm just going to hold on to mine because I bet that Ganz will have it as POTM very soon.....just like the a new release that they announce sometimes get bumped up to the next month.

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

This does NOT make me happy. I did buy a Domino Cat based on the 'error' announcement. I will definitely NOT be buying a walrus. Shame on Ganz fo a very bad decision. Once they realized the 'error', they should have just stuck with it. Bad marketing move!

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

I wonder why they would change it?

Thanks for letting us know!

Me either. We just started doing the POTM a few months ago though, and DD enjoys them so much, so I may end up caving getting the walrus. The Domino Cat just arrived yesterday, and she was so excited, even though it it was for Nov.

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

ganz has made mistakes before but this is just unacceptable. sorry to everyone who already got the cat

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

Nooo! A domino cat is much better than a walrus! Furthermore, those who have already bought one have been ripped off. shame shame shame.

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

Well, someone dropped the ball on this one. I have an unadopted Walrus already, so I'm good there. However, I am concerned about those who made the effort to buy domino cats and found out they are not POTM's.

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

Booo! I am not currently getting POTM's because I don't want any of their special items, but I have a domino cat and would have enjoyed doing the POTM activities. Bad news....

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

WHAT?!?!?!? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I had the domino cat un adopted patiently waiting for November to come!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! How could ganz change their minds! This is ridiculous!!!!!!!!! I'm sure others had gone out and bought the domino cat as well, just to wait for ganz to change their minds!!!!

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

Aw!!! I already have the walrus!!!! And I really wanted the domino cat for November!!!

Why in the world would Ganz do that?

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

I was looking forward to adopting my domino cats in November. Too bad this has changed. I just saw a walrus at Walgreens, but I won't be going back for it. I already have one on my account. So sorry for those who bought the cats based on this error. Hopefully it will be POTM soon.

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

Well..........I hate to say that Ganz is this bad, but, but..........what if Ganz purposly did this? I mean, there is a forum in the rumors section about a scam that the beanie babies company did about retiring all their pets, only to bring them back the next year. It was a scam for people to buy. And ganz did do something like this, remember having the christmas trees in the W Shop? Well then the next year they brought them to the ganz estore! And then last year they were back in the W Shop! It was like a scam for people to pay money for the trees instead of kinzcash. Or, unless, they brought them to the ganz estore and then brought them back to the W Shop because of complaints. Either one.
So, my point is, do you think they've changed the POTM to get people to buy the domino cat, realize the mistake, then run out to then by the walrus?

Re: Ganz Changes November POTM from Domino Cat to Walrus

Thanks FIA for this update! I'll put my newly purchased kitty in the closet for a later date and go hunt down a walrus to purchase.

Just curious why Ganz would renege on a POTM announcement during a major Nafaria glitch fest they are hosting?


Ganz - maybe this is the week you could Stop the Tweeting, Stop the FB updates, Stop introducing new features, etc . . . put your hard hat on and get in the trenches and fix a few glitches!

If this were April, I would cross my heart this was an April Fools Joke!
