For this achievement you have to raise your pets happiness above 70%. Bear with me this will be a long one.

1, What are Hypets and how to use them
Hypets are small companions who are following you and giving you a stat boost. You can't use them from the start however. You have to raise your characters skill level to unlock a specific slot for them in your skill tree (cn_start then character). That slot is for pets only so you can't miss it. Pets are randomly generated loot as everything else: rewards from missions completed or unlocked from containers. Worth to know they don't give their full stat right away, only IF they are happy (half of their stats) or very happy (full stats). You can see the condition of your pet in the bottom right corner in the menu (left from your level and exp).

2, Stats and rarity
- Satiety (shown by a vertical gauge): The more empty the bar is the more hungry your pet is. You can fill it by feeding your pet. As you play the game hunger naturally grows. If a pet goes hungry for a long period of time (bar is empty) it DIES and you will lose it! There is no other known drawback if the bar is not full (but not empty either), however it affects the achievement so you definitely want it full all the time.
- Happiness (shown by a face under the bar and a percentage): It is easier to track the percentage. Every pet starts from 0% happiness. You can raise this the same way as satiety, feeding your pet. A pet is considered happy above 30% and very happy above 70%. This stat is naturally decaying over time, just as satiety so if you neglect your pet by not feeding it frequently you will never get the achievement!

3, Feeding and food types
You have to check on your pet manually. There is no indicator during gameplay to help you with this. On average it is advised to check it at least in every 10-15 minutes. You want to have your pet topped all the time because it you don't put in more happiness than you lose naturally then this achievement becomes an uphill battle. To feed your pet press cn_start and cn_Y. Note: you can only feed your pet if it is a least a bit hungry (bar is under 90%). There are 6 types of food you can get in game (random loot as everything else) form worst to best:
- Contaminated Water Flavor (satiety +18% / satisfaction +0%)
- Fluffy Beast Flavor (+24% / +0,7%)
- Burger Flavor (+30% / +1,4%)
- Carboard flavor (+12% / + 2,8%)
- Fishbones Flavor (+18% / +4,2%)
- Squashoo Flavor (+24% / +7%)
As you see the first few is complete trash and realistically you only want to feed you pet with the last to make some actual progress. However food are random so how do you get enough rare Sqashoo ones?

4, Food swapping
The answer is in the swapping machines. There are blue machines around the city which let you RNG your items for a better (or worse) one. Some of these machines are for food only. You can tell them by the large colorful purple bar on their right side.

There is a trick to get the rarest food every time from these machines but you need certain ingredients for it. First you need any food item that isn't the Contaminated Flavor. If you have a lot of unnecessary items you can use those as well but it costs twice the resources in the end. Put one of those food items in the machine. Then you need a stat boosting chip which it a least HIGH TECH (dark green) - it is in the name if you put the cursor on it. Put in that chip as well then roll (swap). If you win the roll you get a Squashoo, if you lose it you get a Squasho as well... If you want to use Contaminated Water then pair it with any power chip (at least white) and you usually get a better one which is good for the Squashoo swap. I suggest using DIRTY (light green) items because they are common and if you win the roll (~20% or something so don't have your hopes up) you may get a Squashoo as well. If you don't have food item, you can use two power chips as well. If you put in a high tech or better with any other chip you will get the best food. This may seem a waste, but in the second half of the game you will be swimming in chips. Note: pet chips don't guarantee the best food, but if you have tons of them they give at least something useful.

5, Important advices
If you read this so far you may have realized you need a lot of time and resources for this. Despite you may unlock the ability to use pets early on (for example by collecting GameGirls) you should wait with this until you have a considerable amount of food (at least 15+ with 5+ Squashoo) because you have to top you pet right away. Also some main missions may lock you out of purchasing food for a longer period of time (Prison for example). For this reason I suggest waiting with this until you get to the Administrative District.
The better Hypets are easier to raise, if you start this with anything below blue you'll make this harder for yourself. FYI here are the rarity colors for everything except graffiti (from best to worst):
Red / Gold / Purple / Blue / Green / White / Brown
Some colors have subtypes (stronger - weaker color) but the general rule of thumb is the inventory starts with the best stuff and goes on to the worst.

Note: Hypets are treated the same as every upgrade on your character. This means if you put a new chip in (after them) on your skill tree they will be locked and the only way to swap them is losing them forever! Think a lot before you put a pet in and consider the stat it gives you in the long run.
