Hello friends! We thought it would be fun to do a weekly wrap-up of events and activities that have occured in KittycatS over the past month. So every month we’ll be posting a new edition of our monthly “Mewsletter” to recap what’s been going on with KittyCatS over the current month!
July was a great month for releasing new products! We kicked the month off with the release of our KittyCatS Optics line and quickly followed that up with the release of some new summer T-shirts for your KittyCatS to have more ways to strut their style!
July also sawthe release of our first Patriotic KittyCatS decor statue, celebrating the Fourth of July.
Finally we wrapped up the month of July with a special treat for KittyCatS customers. To hep celebrate teamwork and the spirit of sportsmanship, your KittyCatS had a chance to birth a special collectible “Team KittyCat” from July 29 through August 1st. These special KittyCatS came in 3 different styles and were limited to one per avatar. Which team were you on?
July also saw the release of Update 1.23, which quickly turned into Update 1.24 to correct certain issues that popped up courtesy of SL wonkiness. This latest update had us really excited since it introduced two new Display modes for live cats – Image mode and 2D mode – and more importantly, allowed us to introduce “Peek a Box”, a new state for boxes that allows the gender to be displayed on the box, while still showing the wonderful aesthetics of your KittyCatS! Needless to say this was a feature that us all pretty jazzed, and it’s been great to see how the KittyCatS community has incorporated the new box displays into their market set-ups.
We followed up our Update with an update to our Online Cattery. Not only can you see your genders directly on your newborn kitten boxes, but you can also see them in your Cattery once you enable the feature under your account settings!
July was also a month for KittyCatS and special events! We continued our participation with Second Life Relay For Life with an RFL Kick-Off Party on July 12 at the KittyCatS main sim.
From 9:00am to 9:00pm SLT, the KittyCatS main sim was open for dancing, prizes, music, and lots of fun! We were thrilled to see so many of our KittyCatS friends there having a great time and helping to celebrate Relay For Life!
Relay for Life wasn’t the only charitable event that KittyCatS participated in during the month of July. KittyCatS was also proud to take part in this year’s Hair Fair by supporting “Wigs For Kids”. We created 5 bandannas that were sold with all proceeds going to support this great charity that provides free wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer or any other disease.
Each month the KittyCatS main sim is host to both a fishing contest and a KittyCatS trivia contest. This months winners were:
Congratulations to the winners!
