Your KittyCatS Team

In our Update v1.44 we introduced a new version of the KittyCatS! HUD Based on the Online Cattery Layout. The HUD looks a little different, but still retains all of the features of the old HUD, in addition to all of the new features we’ve added:

Fast Facts:

* Display, sort & filter up to 5000 boxes or 2000 cats or any combination between!
* Direct access from the HUD to the KittycatS! info and menus.
* Click to teleport a KittyCat or box to you and send it back!
* Master Control: set text options, range, home, clothing, prim and animation options for all your KittyCatS and boxes in the sim at once! Teleport them home ALL together and/or wake them all up!
* Highlights New Boxes in the box list with a lime color.
* More Info! – Including a picture of each cat or box AND all its traits.
* More Sorting! – SORT your cats in 17 different ways, including traits. AND even more! Not only sorting but also FILTERING of your cats & boxes list.
* More Tools! – Teleport boxes and restore them to their previous position. Get new boxes Highlighted. You won’t miss any present from the stork – err we mean… your cats – anymore!
* More Partners! – Missing from region partners are now shown as well!
* More Smartness! – HUD will auto-hide when it detects no cats or boxes on the sim.

**Please note: If you prefer the old “legacy” style of the HUD, there is v1.44 HUD available in the store free to current HUD owners. You can find it here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/KittyCats/123/91/25**

To help you in setting up the new HUD, we’ve put together the following guide. If you have any questions after going over these steps, please contact us in world and we’ll be happy to assist you further. :)

Before setting up your HUD you need to check some media settings in your viewer preferences. This is because the new HUD requires that certain media settings be enabled in order to work properly. These should be your viewer’s default settings, but if you have modified your viewer settings in the past, this is how it should look to make it work:

Firestorm

Singularity

SL Viewer 3

**Please note: Enabling “auto-play of media” is NOT required for your HUD to work. Leaving it enabled means that you do not have to click on the HUD to activate it when you log in.**

Now, when you first get your HUD and attach it, it will look like this:

Don’t worry – this is how it is supposed to look! Click anywhere on the HUD to “check in” and the HUD should change to look like this:

Click the text highlighted in green and a code will be generated into your Local (or Nearby) Chat like so:

Copy this code and enter it into the form field on your HUD, and then click “Ok”. You will only need to enter this code one time:

Now your HUD should refresh and look like this:

Now your HUD is ready to use! To help you understand the various functions of the HUD, both old and new, we’ve put together this little info-graphic for you:

Please note, you must click once inside your HUD before you can start using the interface. This is an SL limitation and is required each time you click somewhere outside your HUD.

And that’s it! Hopefully this guide has been helpful. If you have ANY trouble getting your HUD set up, please contact us and let us know so that we can assist you. :)

Enjoy! :)

This update is a lot of FUN! We can call it the FunDate well or just, an-update-with-some-super-fun-stuff-added-that-we-are-excited-about! It has some very fun features that the kitties and we have loved making for you! We have smiled and laughed a lot making this and hope you will too!

So after testing and testing and testing and coding and all the other stuff that goes into these things… we will just stop blabbing and just jump right in and tell you about it, ok?

Your KittyCatS Team
Kittycats, Equinox & Callie

NOTE: If this is your first time doing an update with KittyCatS! the process is very simple. Yes, you heard right, VERY simple. (At the bottom of this note are the simple steps on how to update) Also, you can watch our new simple tutorial online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZauiKZLEUQ

HIGHLIGHTS

KittyCatS! proudly presents – Pet & Play Additions! – Petting just got WAY more fun!

We’ve added 2 more fun ways to pet & love your cats! “Adoring” & “Playing” join “Relaxing”, “Pampering” & “Spoiling!” This is not just for you but for ANYONE grid-wide who wants to play with your kitties!!! We are sure you will love these new ways to interact! The cats sure do! So, here are some details!

“Playing” means…Toys! You will get one of 3 Toys in your hand and your cat will play with it, and of course at times ignore it as only a cat can do! So make SURE to select “Playing” in the petting menu to try this!

And… make sure to also try this while your cat is sleeping! We’ve added a very fun addition there that you will just HAVE to see! (it’s quite dreamy too)

KittyCatS! proudly presents – Mega Dreams! – Petting your sleeping giant is now possible!

You can now pet your MegaPuss while it sleeps! So after riding it while awake, you can adore and spoil it in its sleep! You will even get to see it cuddle a giant toy or pillow at times when it sleeps! And yes, you can play with it too while it sleeps! Make sure to try that! You will be in for a fun surprise if it happens to wake while you are petting it! :P

So make sure to Adore, Relax, Pamper, Spoil & Play with your sleeping MegaPuss!

KittyCatS! proudly presents – Cat Play! – Playing just got WAY more fun!
????
Your cats can now play and interact with each other!!! It’s hard to tell just what they will do as they are cats of course but this new feature adds so much fun for them AND you!

They can paw at each other, roll around, lay on their backs being cute and playful. It depends on their mood of course! :P At times it may seem like they want to play all day then at times like they can’t be bothered… Again, just like cats!

We laughed so much watching them play. Sometimes it was just 2, sometimes 3, sometimes 4 or More! They can play a long time or a short time and go their own way and ignore each other completely, there is just no way to predict it and you may really come to believe they have a mind of their own. (yes of course they know they do!)

KittyCatS! proudly presents – Sweet DreamS! – Sleeping just got WAY more fun!
????
Sleeping just got a lot more fun and cuddly for your cats! And… this is another place our adorable new TOYS show up in your cat’s your cats Second Life. (Or is this its Third Life?)

There are 23 different things in all for even sweeter dreams. Some only your babies will use, so you will not want to miss that! :)

AND THERE IS MORE!!

More sleeping fun means MORE sleeping positions! So while your cat is sleeping with a toy, you will notice some new sleeping positions. You will also notice your cat at times will hold its toy tight, then as it sleeps it may let go only to cuddle it again.

We hope you love this new addition as much as we do! Toys will appear randomly when your cat sleeps and don’t worry, your cats will sleep without toys too! And just like cats only THEY will decide!

KittyCatS! proudly presents – One Prim Wonders!

Did we reach the bottom? Who knows… But one thing is sure, we can finally present you with a 1 prim mode for your cats! Yes, ONE prim.

HOW TO ENABLE THIS? Just the way you used to! Just click “2D cat” or “Image” in your cats “Low Prim” menu and with 1.44+, your cat will be 1 prim rather then 2!

So maybe you can drag out your house, and furniture again? :P

More interaction!

We added a cute new “Sit” Position to the interaction menu. Your cat will love this new way for you to love and adore it! Watch and see!

We know you love to hold and cuddle and interact with your cats in many ways, so we thought we’d add one more! :)

Other Changes:

* More Clothes! – Your cat’s closet has expanded. It can now hold 11 clothes attachments!
* More Pedigee Links! – Enable pedigree links automatically for all your future cats & boxes at your account page! (http://kittycats.biz/account.php) Now also allows pedigree links for perma-pets & 2 pedigree links for twin boxes, separate configurable.
* Happier PermaPetS™! – Influence your PermaPetS™ happiness when petting or interacting with it in any way! Now you can see how happy your PermaPetS™ get when you interact with them!
* Highlighted Animations – The interaction menu of breedable cats now highlights animations that influence happiness with an asterisk. “*”
* More chatter! – We have also added some new sayings that your cats will use when speaking to you! They insisted on this… of course.
* Better Range visualization – The range is now visualized from the cat’s home point, rather then the cat’s position.
* More Love – We dropped the limit where cats stopped gaining love when over 25% hungry. The new Limit is 100% hunger. So, your cats will always be able to gain love unless they are sick.
* Improved Feather – The Petting Feather now only requires 4 rather then 5 prims to be rezzed.

On top of all that, version 1.44 includes several more small changes and fixes. Some of theselhave been present, tested and fine tuned in earlier versions, often used for docks & collection cats.

A big thank you from the KittyCatS! Team to Verdian Frog for creating the new avatar animations for the 2 additional pet modes and sit interaction!

Last but not least… For KittyCatS! HUD Owners

Presenting the KittyCatS Spring 2015 Colllection- “Garden Party” collectible KittyCatS!

KittyCatS is proud to present the 2015 Spring Collection “Garden Party” collectible KittyCatS!

They went to a Garden Party, to eat cakes with all their friends, they danced and sang to the music,
there was magic in the air…

Ah.. yes!!! Spring is here and our kitties have dressed up in their finest Italian hand crafter linen dresses and suits for a day celebrating life and Spring!

So what do KittyCatS do all day at a Garden Party? Well, of course mostly they sleep… but we were able to get them to sit still for this shot as we told them it was for YOU!

And if you need to know the time, just ask the boys as they have a little watch in their pocket. But, be prepared, their answer will probably be, “time for fish!”

As we wave a very happy goodbye to Winter, and soak in the beauty of all the new things that Spring brings. We hope these Kitties remind you that there is new life happening all year long!

Happy Spring!!!

Your KittyCatS! Team

KittyCatS is proud to present the 2015 Spring Collection “Hard Boiled Bunny” collectible KittyCatS!

Once upon a time, like a day or so ago, the KittyCatS decided to color some eggs for easter. They went to collect them from their chickens in the barn and then went to cook them in their house. Then they all had a fun coloring party!

Well they also had noticed the bunnies outside having so much fun and wishes they could be bunnies too…

YAY!!! Bunnies, Bunnies, Bunnies! Bunnies looking funny! Bunnies dyed and painted like Hard Boiled Eggs!

They really love doing this for you, ya know? They had a LOT Of fun as you can tell, painting and coloring all over each other! And after a dark, cold, grey winter, they went all out using vibrant colors like their favorite Spring flowers!

We hope you enjoy these balls of color that are bursting with joy about Spring, and bunnies and eggs and uh… art and uh…color? Yes, that’s it!

Happy Spring!
