Yesterday’s updates to the iPhone OS included some much-needed features — holla, cut and paste — but the demo that caught our interest? The new iPhone game Touch Pets:

Oooh, it is cute. (Not too surprising since it’s from ngmoco, makers of the kick-me-in-the-uterus adorable Rolando. Kawaii.) 

But I have been down this road before with a dangerous mistress named Nintendogs. And before that, I had my virtual-pet jones met by a Tamagotchi. Both just left me cold, so I think I’m going to sit out this round of videogame companionship and stick with reading Martha Stewart’s dogs’ blog. I like when they speak French. Because they’re French Bulldogs, duh.

How about you, PopWatchers? Are you feeling Touch Pets?
