Pet Society Twins


What’s the likelihood of running into a pet that looks exactly like yours? Chumchum, a programmer, explains that finding a lookalike depends on the number of choices at the stylist. Let’s suppose there are 2 colors and 3 heads you can pick from. How many possibilities will you get? The answer: 2 x 3 = 6.

However, this is the reality at the Pet Society Stylist:

Color: 31 choices
Head: 20
Ears: 22
Face: 37
Nose: 22
Eyebrows: 24
Eyes: 36
Mouth: 20

31 x 20 x 22 x 37 x 22 x 24 x 36 x 20 = 191,859,148,800

Wow! Over 191 billion possibilities! This means it is very, very, very unlikely that you run into your clone. In fact, it’s more likely that you will win a lottery or marry Brad Pitt or be adopted by Angelina.

Still, it’s always fun to see pets that look like family. Here are some images sent in by readers.

And don’t forget, I’m now looking for spooky or funny Halloween pictures for a contest. Deadline is Oct 25.

    Thanks for explaining the odds! Tizzy is so happy to have her picture on the blog. Pembis had much of the same furniture too.

    loll really low odds xD

    but in reality, the odds might be be higher since certain choices are more popular than others, since not everyone follows the randomizer.

    My sister Cyndi and I had a great laugh over this post. She just got a pet for herself and tells me she’s going to visit the cafe quite often and find her twin….we sound like children don’t we? Me-46 yrs old, Cyndi- 43 yrs old…..our husbands think we’re nuts!! There could be worse things we could be doing….!
