A loss of Kinzcash in the thousands would definitely cause me to be angry because my Kinzcash should only decrease when I spend it, whereas pet happiness goes down naturally while you're logged in and doing nothing.

Since it sounds like you have more than one pet, why don't you put the unhappy pet to bed and play with another pet until you have the time to work on the happiness of the one that lost points?
It takes a lot more than a game or 2 to raise your pet's happiness. I just sent my polar bear on vacay and he got scared by the ghost as well. I've played at least 5 games, answered a kajillion Quizzy questions, fed it it's PSF, it's favorites, bought it another of it's favorite toys, taken it to the doc, given it a bath, talked to it, etc... and still I'm only up to 50% happiness.

In my opinion it's not gambling, to answer the original question tho...
And it's just a game...

If you can afford the Spa GetAway - that automatically brings ALL the pets stats up to 100%. I always keep my pets at close to 100% in everything - so a Spa GetAway is really inexpensive... You could try that.
I don't think it's 'gambling' - but, it is a little shocking! The first time it happened to me I freaked a little - and, I'm an adult! lol My dd likes going on vacation - but, she doesn't play rock the boat 'cuz she's too afraid of getting the ghost...

Although I don't like my pets being scared (I'd rather have the prizes lol) I would be extremely angry if all my kc disappeared. It doesn't matter if I had thousands of kc or just a few dollars...it should not disappear unless I spend it on something.

I don't mean to sound rude or mean but it really isn't that big of a deal. My youngest kids understand that the ghost might come and it makes them sad but they know it isn't worth crying over or anything like that. They know that their webkinz can't die and although they are a little scared at the time they will get happy again with some extra love. Kind of like when they get scared because there is a thunder storm..they are scared but the storm passes and few extra hugs and snuggles makes them happy again in a little while.

This is exactly the reason I don't do that boat anymore. I've only been on it twice where it hasn't scared my pet. Quizzy's is what I do, along with food.

I much prefer the way they have it now. I would not agree with losing my hard earned kc over one pet's health who I can make happy again fairly easily. Sorry you got the ghost! We have been lucky enough to only see Ghosty 1 time & it was on a new acct. with only one Webkinz. Thank Goodness, because on our main acct. it would have cost $6,000+kc to go to that darn spa! On this acct. it was lke $60 or so, bumped up to $150 (I think) when Ghosty attacked! So I decided not to do the spa & instead gave li' Kiley a bath, played games, & fed her.
Brushing teeth/hair, going on a tread mill, & feeding them their fave food (on the pet biography) will also bump up their happiness/health quickly!

Ganz does a very decent job keeping WW kid friendly though! I applaud them!

I think that is how I look at it too. I don't like the ghost thing, but it is like going to a scary movie or a haunted house or something as a kid - you might get scared and you know the risk is there before you go. And with some extra attention and love it will be ok again.

I had a pet scared by the ghost, I babied him a little and played a lot of smoothie moves and he's ok now.

You don't need to send your pets on another vacation to earn back happiness points. You can play games, swim in a pool, jump on a trampoline. OR the quickest way (and fairly inexpensive) is to send your pets (they all go) to the SPA. You will get back ALL of your happiness points. When we saw the ghost, that is what we did. Worded both times!

Also, WW does warn you "not to rock the boat".... so, if you do rock it, you do so at your own risk. Hope a trip to the SPA fixes your sad pet. Good luck.

I babysit my cousin everyday and she just turned six this week and like your kids she understands that it is just a game but its hard when her sister has the entire pirate outfit and 3 map pieces and she has been scared every single time she has been on vacation. She hasn't even gotten money or chocolate even. She was showing her mom her house the other day and her mom asked why all of her pets were so sad and we found out she had been taking a different pet on vacation every day. I helped her bring all of her pets back up to 100 and now she just has one pet who rocks the boat (Spooky who she says likes to be scared and just pretends to be sad so we will play with her more) she pretty much just stays sad forever because we find it pointless to bring her happiness back up if she is just going to get scared again in 24 hours.

Yeah I know its just a game and I myself don't mind being scared once in a while but that is a little extreme.
