Fallout Shelter, the mobile game based on Fallout, just got the best update ever: pets.

Your dwellers can now derive comfort from their Dogmeats and Catmeats, though they’ll still need food and water to survive. Different pets have different attributes; for example, the Siamese has +2 Rad Healing Speed, so it can theoretically put up with a lot more radiation exposure than your average feline companion.

The Fallout Shelter update will also add a holiday makeover, including snowflakes and Christmas lights. New pickup lines will delight your more amorous dwellers, and you can sell storage stacks all in one go instead of item by item. You’ll also be able to evict unwanted dwellers, in the spirit of, well…anyway. It’s the thought that counts, right?
