Petz II is the second installment of the Petz series, released in 1997 for Windows 95 as two separate games, Catz II and Dogz II. It was developed and published by PF Magic and distributed by Mindscape.
Petz II was a major graphical overhaul for the series and introduced many core game play components such as integration of Dogz II and Catz II and being able to adopt multiple Petz. It was also the first Petz game to feature online integration.
Its successor, Petz 3, was released in 1998.
