Default Answered: Lava Dragon and Ribbon Unicorn?

OK so I read on the News Page here that the Ribbon Unicorn and the Lava Dragon have retired (also according to the WIGEV (WIGEV) Pet Specific Items - Webkinz Insider Wiki.
So.. here is where the "Somebody Help" comes in... I am in the Trading Room (this is not trade talk- just asking a question) and asking for PSI, I put up my items and told the Love Lion my two items are retired, so he points out to me that they are not listed as RETIRED on the Webkinz Catalog! So I go have a look for myself.. and they certainly ARE NOT listed as "RETIRED" on the Catalog when you first log into WW!!
So does anyone know what is going on with this?
Has Ganz officially said the Ribbon Unicorn and Lava Dragon are retired? Did they forget to update their Catalog?
Needless to say, I did not trade for "regular pet items", because it would not have been a fair trade to me, according to the WIGEV (WIGEV) Pet Specific Items - Webkinz Insider Wiki

Any help is appreciated!!!

You are correct, both of those pets are retired. When they retire a pet the retailers are told it is retired first, that is why a lot of times you know in advance that a pet retired. Now they also post some of the retirements on webkinznews but it still does not match up with what they show in wkw.

If they always updated the list it would show how fast they really retire pets, it would probably be discouraging to many kids so they wait and wait until they are out long enough or whatever and then they list it as retired online in wkw.

Once a pet is retired the psi retires right along with it.

If there is a little kinz version of the pet that is currently available, then the psi will remain current, but if both versions retire the psi for that pet is officially retired.

Hm......this is strange. Maybe they haven't gotten to updating the catalog? I'm not sure. But I am pretty sure the Ribbon Unicorn and the Lava Dragon are retired, GANZ did announce it earlier, didn't they?

They are both retired. I'm guessing Ganz just hasn't updated it yet.

The ribbon unicorn is retired and the lava dragon is seasonal so I'm not sure it's retired or maybe going to be back for Halloween. The catalogue probably is not up to date.

I definitely remember the announcements on WI that both were being retired, but have noticed they aren't listed as retired in the WW catalog. Another one that was announced as retired is the black panther, which is also not listed as retired in the catalog. Maybe Ganz hasn't gotten around to updating the catalog? Not like WI to get all three of them wrong...especially since they were all announced separately.

Thank you Skatergirl for the clarification. I'm learning something new everyday!
