Touchbar Pet

Download Touchbar Pet

This is currently a work-in-progress, but feel free to download and check out the beta!

I’ll be updating it every several days, check back!

version 0.1 – basic app
version 0.2 – tail animations
version 0.3 – pet can die now
version 0.4 – starts as a baby
version 0.5 – childhood stage, pet poops now, slower stat changes when app is in background
version 0.6 – egg and elder stage

version 0.6.1 (experimental) – always present in touchbar. uses private Apple API so can’t be notarized, and you’ll have to right-click this to open if you are on Catalina
version 0.7.1 (experimental) (untested) – always present in touchbar. two finger tap for laser pointer


How do I open the app?
You used to have to right-click the app to open it. But the latest build is notarized by Apple, so it should open normally. If you are still having problems opening version 0.5 or later, this Apple support article might help.

What MacOS version do I need to run this app?
Right now it runs on MacOS 10.14 and higher.

I opened the app, but only see a blank window titled “Touchbar Pet”.
Look at your touchbar!

Why is my pet losing health?
– Your pet is starving (hunger level is 10).
– Your pet is overfed (you fed them for a while after hunger reached 0).
– Your pet’s environment is too dirty. Tap poop to clean it up.
– Your pet is dying of loneliness. Pet them more frequently.
This list will be expanded in future versions.

How does my pet regain health?
When I’m sick, I feel better by eating enough food and getting plenty of sleep. Let your pet take naps with hunger less than 4 (but don’t overfeed them), and let them wake up on their own (don’t force them awake).

How do I keep my pet happy?
Make sure they are healthy, well-fed, and pet them often. They like a clean environment, so remove any poop. They get grumpy if they are awakened from naps too often.
This list will be expanded in future versions.
