Wapuu Dashboard Pet


Wapuu Dashboard Pet is a virtual pet for your WordPress admin dashboard. The more you fail to update your site, the sicker Wapuu becomes. Keep WordPress Core, plugins and themes up to date to keep them happy.

Wapuu Dashboard Pet works by counting the number of updates available on your site. The more there are, the more unhappy they appear in the corner of the dashboard. Wapuu is a visual representation of the health of your site.


  1. Upload the “Wapuu Dashboard Pet” folder to the “/wp-content/plugins/” directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” menu in WordPress.

Will Wapuu die if I don’t update my site?

Wapuu will not die, he will be eternally sad if updates are not done, but you wouldn’t let that happen, right?
