The Winds of Anthos is the latest in the farming and life sim series from Harvest Moon. In the game, you’re on a grand adventure to reunite the towns, farm crops, go fishing, mining and more. Anthos is a beautiful place full of wild fauna and flora, and if you manage to find a cute and cuddly friend out there you could also take them home to live with you as a pet!

You never know what kind of animal you’ll meet out in the wild that you’ll want to take home with you. They range from the more traditional cats and dogs to birds, owls, meerkats, ferrets, foxes and more. Not only are they a source of infinite cuteness in your home, but once you’ve increased their maximum affection level they’ll even give you benefits. Such as petting them will restore stamina for you, or they’ll forage for you certain items.

You can get pets by buying them at Animal Shops in towns or by taming them out in the wild. In this guide, we’ll go through all the different pets you can get in Harvest Moon: The Winds of Anthos. Where to find them, the benefits of having them, how to look after them and more.

   

How To Befriend Wildlife

You’ll come across all sorts of wildlife during your exploration of The Winds of Anthos. The type and variation of the animals will differ according to the season, the time of day and what area you’re in. For example, owls will only be found at night and the Snow Hare will only be found in the Zimagrad Region.

Once you find one that you want to bring home you can try befriending them. To start the befriending process try approaching them on foot slowly to pet them and bribe them with some items. Some animals, like tend to spook easily. To avoid scaring them off, you’ll want to approach them calmly and quietly with the sneak mechanic. The bonding process make take a couple of days for you to achieve before you’re able to fully befriend an animal. But keep at it and eventually you’ll be able to tame them and bring them home!

 

Caring For Your Pet

Whether your pet was tamed from the wild or bought from a store you’ll need to make sure to feed and look after them everyday. The first thing you’ll need for your house once you’ve brought your new friend home is to craft them a pet food bowl. You can do this on your workbench. Make sure to give them pets and feed them animal fodder daily. There isn’t an auto-feeder for your house so you’ll have to do this by hand.

A pet’s skill will only trigger when the pet is at full friendship. So for you’ll only be able to recieve gifts or gain benefits by petting them after this.
