Holiday Mini Bear Appearance Issues

Hello,

I've noticed that my Holiday Mini Bear tends to have some visual issues with its paws. Specifically, its paws will look way too thin, and its body will appear disproportionate. Don't know what's causing this, but using a Pet Age Potion (attempted with a 1, 3 and 5 version) will reset the Holiday Mini Bear to its normal appearance.

Here's what it currently looks like with the issue:

This is what it should look like:

    I can confirm this happens for me too. Same with my panda.

    It's an elderly pet. They keep growing beyond age 5 and get bony legs after a couple of months. Take a closer look at your oldest horses/cats/dogs/etc too, they'll all have weird thin legs.

    I swear, why would you even challenge that? I wouldn't state such things if I knew I could be proven wrong with a two-word sentence. We've known about this feature since forever, here's a thread from 2010 discussing it.

    That said, I don't like it either and I wouldn't mind seeing it removed. Since we're discussing it again, I thought it would be worth pointing out that this is an in-game feature affecting certain old pets, so it's not a typical bug.
    If we don't want the devs brushing us off with a "not a bug; feature working as intended", it's probably a better idea to say that we understand that this is a feature - an unpleasant one - and we want it removed completely.

    I never noticed this, i swear i would have noticed this right away if it did look that awful like it does in these screenshots. The only thing that really annoys me is the character head size looking all same no matter what age they are. Now that crap is horrendous. Really wish it was only a glitch too, but nope. It's Nexon's great feature.

    If that was meant to be, shouldn't old pets also have slower speed?

    @Eralea Thanks for pointing this out, but when I said I tested with three different age potions, they were all in the same day because the issue happened 3 times within 24 hours.

    Yea they definitely shouldn't be reverting that fast. Aren't pet age potions supposed to last until Saturday age up? ... Are the event ones nerfed?

    I though all age potions were weekly.
