Remember last week when we told you about “Scratch-n-Play”? well… it’s here!

*~°*°~**~°*°~**~°*°~**~°*°~**~°

Presenting “Scratch-n-Play”
an interactive scratching pole from KittyCatS!
with “click to customize” options!

*~°*°~**~°*°~**~°*°~**~°*°~**~°

What is it exactly? An interactive cat scratch pole your KittyCat will LOVE to climb, scratch and play with!
You will see a whole new side of your KittyCat with this fun interactive scratching pole!

FAST FACTS:

• Can all your KittyCatS use it? YES
• Is there a way to change the color to match my home? YES ( there are a few color/wood/scratch rope options)
• Will my cat know it’s there and use it? YES! they have been bugging us to make them!
• IMPORTANT: The Scratch-n-Climb Pole needs to be in range of the cats home, and the cat needs to be allowed to walk to use it.
They will scratch or climb the pole when they feel like it, between their usual daily activities :)
• Posts are no copy, no mod but transferable!

Available NOW in the mainstore… where you can see KittyCatS at play! :)

We really hope you enjoy this… we sure have!

Since all of the current Jewels have been discovered, it’s time to reveal some more details about them! :)

There are 3 types of KittyCatS Jewels:

- Diamonds
- Rubies
- Emeralds

These KittyCatS Jewels are “gifted” to you by your KittyCatS randomly during the birth process. If you are given a Jewel, it will be rezzed above a newborn kitten box. The KittyCatS Jewels act as a type of currency for our special FancyCatS! You need to collect 10 Diamonds, 20 Rubies or 30 Emeralds to be able to get a FancyCat in exchange. More details about what these FancyCatS will look like to come later!

When you have enough Jewels of one type, you will be able to pick up an Jewel Exchange Box in the mainshop. All you will have to do is rez the Jewels besides it and the Jewel box will collect the needed amount and transform in a KittyCatS FancyCat!

Good luck in collecting your KittyCatS Jewels! :)

Hi All! We have updated the Pedigree system and added the new Jewels to the website! Below you’ll find specifics on what was changed. We hope you like the improvements as much as we do! :)

Pedigree

FILTERING:

  • You can now FILTER your pedigree list by selecting specific traits on top.
  • Search for your cats by name in the new search field. (case sensitive)

And ofcourse, all these filtered results can still be sorted as well :)

AND MORE!

  • The NEW WHISKER TRAITS were added too!
  • For KittyCatS living in the Menagerie the pedigree trees will now still show the cats name, and just have a small “Menagerie” tag.
  • Total male & female count added at bottom of list.

JEWELS

  • You will find a new “My Account” Entry in the website menu, showing your KITTY DOLLAR BALANCE & collected JEWELS

(Purchased jewels will show within 24 hours. Make sure to rez them if you received them via a direct inventory transfer so they register and show on your page ).

Enjoy!

At very random times, your cats will gift you with a rare gemstone… (you will have to wait and see what they are) when you get them you can collect them and when you get the amount needed they will give you a Fancy Cat! Our Fancies will be very special cats that will range from variations on different breed colors ONLY available thru being a “Fancy”! Also… the KittyCatS! Jewels can be traded or sold for those of you who have more than you need. We hope this is fun for you!

* Introducing: Whiskers Whiskers Whiskers!

We’re really excited about adding the new whisker traits! It’s been something we’ve wanted to do for quite some time!
As of now the “default” whiskers are called Silver for color and “Guitar” Shape. Funny shape name huh?
As a little bonus we added a different hidden trait in the update (the same for all) which basically means YOUR CATS CAN HAVE OFFSPRING WITH A DIFFERENT SHAPED/COLORED WHISKER as SOON as you breed them! You won’t have to wait for your new babies to grow for this trait to show up! Even more new Whiskers to discover can be found in the new starters! Enjoy!

Time to give a more focused and pleasant oversight in your stores!
* Left Shoulder and Cuddle attachment positions are now restored when manually adjusted, reset on owner change, kept on update. So no more readjusting :)
* For KittyCatS HUD owners: HUD display increased from 240 to 275 KittyCatS!

* Box rotation will now be kept after an update… Yes, less work for you ;)

Cats:
* Cats will not listen anymore for a new name, partner or range if other buttons got pressed meanwhile in the menu.
(also fixes the problem where a cat for which a partner attempt was initiated , but not finished yet, messed up the partnering that was set from an other cat in the meantime).
* possible fix for some cats ending up with a disproportional head for a short time (Yes, we need your help here, keep reporting the problem if it still occurs!)
* “I love you, avi_name” will now only say the first name.
* Cats which have ” Walk & Run” and “Sit & Lay ” disabled will no longer do funny moves with their head… Oops!

We’ve been paying attention to your feedback and heard your cries of help and we’re pleased to announce two new products now available in our store – Happy Vitamins and Love Drops!

Happy Vitamins are a one-time use vitamin that provides a temporary boost to your cats Happiness for a period of 5 hours! Happiness Vitamins come in both 5% and 10% versions and are available in the Vitamin section in the back of the main store.

Love Drops are a one-time use item that instantly boosts your cat’s Love by 1%. That’s right – no more agonizing over that last 1%! Love Drops can only be used on cats at 99% Love, even if the cat is already on a Love Vitamin cooldown (using a Love Drop will trigger a Love Vitamin cooldown however!) Love Drops come in Singles, 5 Packs and 10 Packs and are also available in the Vitamins section of our main store.


We hope you enjoy using these new products as much as we enjoyed making them! :)
