We added a basic filter field to the cat tabs in the cattery!

Fast Facts:

Typing for example

gene -> filters & highlights cats with ‘gene’ in their name or traits.
gene| -> only highlights cats with ‘gene’ in their name or traits.

gene|small -> filters & hightlights cats with ‘gene’ and/or ‘small’ in their name or traits.
gene|small| -> only highlights cats with ‘gene’ and/or ‘small’ in their name or traits.

and so on… (You can connect as many search terms as you like this way. The more search terms, the more results.)

As a reference this small manual is also available in a short version by hovering over the word “filter” in your cattery.
To visit the Cattery go to http://kittycats.biz/online

Enjoy!
Your KittyCatS! Team

Your pedigree-view pages now show the offspring of male cats that you bred together with a female cat owned by someone else.

This will only work for offspring bred as of this date (January 30, 2014) as that information was not logged before.

Enjoy!
Your KittyCatS Team.

Cattery:
* Name & Unpack Boxes
* Send Cats & Boxes to The Menagerie
* Transaction History shows when you ran out of food

Pedigree:
* Removed collar column as it was no longer compatible with the new wardrobe system which allows multiple collars.

Cattery & Pedigree:
*Hover over a cats age to see the detailed age, including hours & minutes (usefull if you wanted to know when they turn 121 days more exact!)

Enjoy!
Your KittyCatS Team

We added some new functionality to the Pedigree! When you visit your Pedigree, you’ll notice a new notes feature – KittyNoteS! Now you can add and edit notes to your kitties directly in your Pedigree! You can add notes about anything! Create individual notes and save them one at a time or save them all at once! We’re really excited about this new feature and hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!


(click to make bigger)

FAST FACTS:

* Notes can be made for cats that you own or have bred.
* Each note can be opened/closed individually, or all at once with the controls on top. (hide all/show all)
* Opening individual notes will hide the traits, but the controls on top allow you to click “full view” to also show the traits. When both the traits and notes are shown, you can’t individually close them.
* Save buttons show up as soon as you make a change. A general save button will show up in the top controls too.
* If you try to leave the page before you save changes or try to close a note without saving changes, it will ask you if you want to save them.
* Owner notes are deleted when the cat changes owner. Notes made by the breeder of the cat stay forever. Breeder notes are only visible to the breeder of the cat, and will only show the last edits made (the note’s history is not saved.)
* Maximum note size is 300 characters
* Only you can read the notes you made.
* Existing notes cannot be replaced with a completely blank note. To change an existing note into a blank note, replace the note text with a single space.

Enjoy!
Your KittyCatS Team.

As promised in our update – enjoy!! There are 2 color choices, dark and light wicker :)

Each comes with 4 removable “laundry” pieces you can use if you wish…

Enjoy!!

Your KittyCatS Team

FAST FACTS:

*Can all your KittyCatS use it? Almost! Megapusses can’t, all others can.
*Will my cat know it’s there and use it? YES!
*Comes with 4 unlinked cloth parts which you can take away or re-arrange to your likings!

IMPORTANT:
*The Wash & Play – Laundry Basket needs to be IN RANGE of the cats home, and the cat needs to be ALLOWED TO WALK to use it.
*Make sure to leave enough free space around the basket, so your cats can reach it.

Note that if your cat is wearing a hat or glasses, it will never come out with a towel on it’s head.

They will jump in the basket when they feel like, between any of their usual daily activities :)

Enjoy!

KittyCatS! Update V 1.32
**************

Hello Wonderful KittyCatS Community!!!

WOW!!! What a year it’s been!

First of all a HUGE thank you to you all for being an amazingly creative, kind, giving and fun community. We could not IMAGINE a better community than you are!

This update is very special to us. It has so many features that build upon things we’ve added for the past 2 years. It includes things we have dreamt of making available for you to enjoy even before we launched. (Yes, we do have quite long lists.) The most exciting thing about this update is it allows even more interaction AND customization at your fingertips.

As with each update, we aim to improve your experience with your KittyCatS while tending to any little bugs or fleas they may have picked up along the way! Imagine that! :p

Enough blabbing huh? Let’s get to the fun stuff!

Are you ready? We are!

Your KittyCatS Team

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 – The KittyCatS Closet! – Dress Up Time!
null

We know that for the longest time you’ve wanted to dress your KittyCatS in glasses, collars, hats, OR other combinations that you could only imagine. Dream no more! The world of KittyCatS Couture & Feline Fashion has just grown to add more pizazz and style to those finicky little fashionable felines! You can now customize a wardrobe for your KittyCatS!

KittyCatS now come with a built in “closet” right inside their menu which can hold up to 9 wearable accessories!!! Ever wish you didn’t have to part with one item when you liked another? Well NOW you don’t have to! This awesome addition will allow you to customize your cat’s appearance even MORE! Now they can wear glasses AND hats at the same time, as well as other creative combinations.

And… yes… if they can’t decide what to wear.. they can wear ALL 9 items at one time! It may look odd.. however, are you gonna tell them that?

Note: each item worn will add a one prim. However, when attached to you it won’t add to your land’s prim count. Just “dress them up & take them out on the town.” “Take them out you say?” Yes, this new feature ties in wonderfully to another new feature where you can NOW take them out in other ways besides holding or cuddling… are you ready???

Important: Wearable items will now all be shown in the “clothing” part of the menu, which you will find after clicking the “prims” button. ONLY custom created clothing will be shown in “stats”.

*** KittyCatS! proudly presents – The CatWalk! – Take one, two or ALL your cats out with you for a walk!

Your cats can NOW walk beside you, in front of you, behind you, wherever YOU choose!!! Yes you heard right!!! Who cares about “walking the dog” when your cats are dying to walk YOU!

With this feature, you simply hit the “interact” button, then “walk” and you’re off! And yes, you can TP around with them too!
Also, if your cats fall asleep while you have them out with you, no worries as they will “sleep walk!” Now, they may not really enjoy this always, but they will let you know *grin*.

You can edit and place them exactly where YOU want. Also, if you run, guess what? Like it or not, they will run too!!!
When you are standing, they will do their normal cute KittyCatS things like wash, lay, roll, look around, and more!

IMPORTANT: please use the “DROP” option when removing your cat, as with our other “holds.”

We’re thrilled to add this feature! We hope you enjoy it! We sure do! So, what’s next you ask?

*** KittyCatS! proudly presents – Follow the Leader! – Free following feature. (non attached following)

Yes, another fun interactive feature we’re happy to showcase!!! This feature allows you to simply click your cat, then “animation” then turn on “follow”.

So, what will happen? Your cats will “follow” you in a free roaming way. They may run, walk, wait, just as cats like to do. AND, they will they will come to you and follow you around! :)

What we really love about this, besides being able to choose which cats you want to enable to “follow”, is that with another new feature we have added, your cats won’t be running to much into your couches, trees, or anything when the follow option is chosen because of…

*** KittyCatS! proudly presents – KittyCatS! PathFinding! – Our unique version of path finding!

Our path finding system allows for more fluid movement for your cats so they can navigate around things and move about freely. All you have to do is have the “walk” or “follow” option on in the animation menu! AND… no need to change anything to your setup! This feature works right out of the box! Due to complexity of this functionality they may still make some boo boos from time to time, but we went as far as we could at this point!

With our new path finding, your cats will roam within their set range at their will! This is NOT determined by any scripted objects but our own system that will bring the experience of them being “alive” even more real. Imagine that!

*** KittyCatS! proudly presents – MegaPuss Jumping!

Your MegaPusses can now JUMP! This feature brings riding to a whole new level of fun! You must try it… As always, simple to use by just tapping your page up key while walking or running! Imagine… races or riding about and being able to jump over things!! More fun than you can imagine! Everybody… JUMP!

*** KittyCatS! proudly presents – Jumping CatS! – Did we say JUMP again???

Yes we did! We’ve added a really cute jumping animation that your cats will do randomly while walking or running. So as your cats are scampering about, if you think you saw them jump, you were NOT imagining things! You did see that indeed!

*** KittyCatS! proudly presents – Wash & Play Laundry Basket – new interactive item!

Since the release of our scratching post, and ball fetching, we’ve wanted to have more things for your cats to interact with and now, we present this really fun interactive item! The Wash & Play basket is something all Kitties LOVE. Imagine, bringing in a freshly laundered basket of soft towels, blankets and more… what cat could resist jumping into that? Not ours!

Watch your KittyCat jump in, hide, play, and jump out! We loved making this for you and it comes with extra “laundry” so you can choose either a one prim basket OR keep the other pieces in place when as it comes when you rez it. Move the extras pieces around to customize it to fit your tastes, leave them as they are, or take them into your inventory to save on prim space… The choice is yours.

Again, we’re so excited about this and hope you love it. The Wash & Play Laundry Basket will be sold in the store as an optional item. :)

*** KittyCatS! proudly presents – Lay & Play! – new holding animation

We’re happy to have added another animation to the mix. The new lay animation is one you and your cat will love! Lay back and relax and just enjoy time with your KittyCat! Be warned, if you have more than one, they may get jealous.

This new animation works with cats from Teacups to Bigger De Bigs. For best results you may have to slightly adjust your arm length, if your hand are too close together or cat position as no 2 avies are the same. (arm length at 50 seems to work really well)

Also, like our other cuddles and petting, or riding, this will have the same boosting effect as milk when used for 30 minutes.

IMPORTANT: please use the “DROP” option when removing your cat, as with our other “holds.”

Special thanks to Veridian Frog of Mood Swings for working with us on the animation!

HIGHLIGHTS

KittyCatS! proudly presents – “One size does NOT fit all”

We are so excited to introduce some new sizes for you. In addition to our adorable teacups and toys we have 3 more sizes!!! These are random like teacup and toys.
All of them will come in their own special sized boxes :)

PETITE: The Petite is the size of about a 5 day old kitten. The fun cuddly size, not quite as big as a normal cat but so lovable and cuddly!!! One of our favorite sizes!

BIGGER DE BIG: Well.. what can we say about this one… it’s a cat bigger than the biggest normal cat we have now. Hefty, Robust… these cats know they rule the roost already and their size will prove it! You can pet and cuddle them like normal sizes.

MEGAPUSS: It’s a plane or is it a train, no it’s MegaPuss!!! This is the biggest of the new sizes AND has a very special feature included. Due to it’s large size it can not be held, cuddled or petted when full grown but a new feature will enable you to still enjoy the benefits of petting and cuddling as a happiness/love boost! We think you will really enjoy this new size :) Oh yeah… about that new feature… well… you will have to keep reading to find out!

KittyCatS! proudly presents – “Ride Em Cowboy!”

We are thrilled to introduce RIDING!!! YES, you heard it right from the Cat’s Mouth!!! If you get a “MegaPuss” cat, you will be able to right click it and ride it!!! BUT that is NOT all!!! You can also have a friend ride on the back WITH YOU!!!

The riding feature is unique as it actually follows terrain. Meaning, unlike most rideables out there, your cat won’t just move up a mountain at a horizontal position but will actually move up and down the terrain following the angles of the terrain itself! This makes for very realistic riding experience! You can also RUN by just simply clicking the forward arrow 2 times when starting!

So ride alone, take strolls for enjoyment, race with your friends, let a passenger hop on back with you, whatever you want!!! And if you have some time left… Check out what your cat does while you are sitting on it but not riding!

Oh did we tell you… TINIES CAN RIDE TOO!!! So we wish you luck in getting the new MegaPuss size! Note: we will also be expanding this feature in the future to add more fun things… :)

Special thanks to Veridian Frog of MoodSwings who worked with us to create the fun animations and Cyzicus Xue for the tiny sit!

KittyCatS! proudly presents – “Family Tree”

This feature is an update to the pedigree system. For each cat you can enable a check mark on its pedigree page to make a pedigree link appear in the cats In World Info… A link gives access to a 30 minute pedigree session.

But… wait… there’s more! If the new link by the owner is enabled for one of the grandparents too for example, you can click the grandparent and enter that pedigree as well in just one handy session! Accessible pedigree cats are shown with a green tag.

This “in depth browsing” will add flexibility in sharing and will enable the owner to allow people to see into the pedigree and as far back as to even the starters!!! All cats need to be owned by the same person to accomplish that.

KittyCatS! proudly presents – “Magic Menagerie Bottle” – or… I WANT MY CAT BACK!

This new feature will allow for immediate retrieval of cats sent to the menagerie by accident or if you have second thoughts. The window for getting a cat back will be ONE WEEK from when it was sent.
We’ve created a special Magic Menagerie Bottle, which when used will bring back your cat from the Menagerie. We had to make sure to get the cat’s permission for this as they love it there so much.
The bottle is free and will be available at the KittyCatS store soon. When used it will deduct 50 K$ from your Kitty Dollars collected through the Menagerie.

But wait… what about cats sent there by mistake very long ago? We’ve thought about that too! We are working hard to restore all of that information. When completed, you will be able to get a very limited amount of ‘old’ menagerie cats during a short period of time. Details will be announced later… So stay tuned!

****************************************

ADDITIONS
*2 new poses. One new stand and one new sit!!! So cute… look in the new and improved poses menu!!!
*Pose selected now shows in a checked box.
*Detailed Pedigree view pages now also shows the offspring’s mom or dad counterpart and allows you to sort them accordingly!
*We’ve added “emotes” so Your Cats will not only talk but also share thoughts and actions with you!
*Cats which are partnered to a cat which is in the Menagerie or is a Perma-Pet™ can be unpartnered now with the break up bottles.
*More flexibility in the placement of hats… We will update you later on this with some new items!
*Cat lets you know when they somehow throw the ball off a skybox.

CHANGES
*Easier Partnering: Comparable to vitamins, the partnering dialog will now select the closest cat for you automatically where possible! The old method can still be accessed through the “Other Cat” button.
*Petting Feather will now directly attach to those petting cats owned by others.
*Stats in Info are now all on one line to reduce the height somewhat and to make space for the new pedigree links.
*Second Menagerie confirmation message now also shows the cats name.

FIXES
*Cats will now leave the Scratch & Play posts as a “whole”.
*Cats will now behave normal when a Scratch & Play post is outside their range.
*Shades on box images will now show correctly.
*Playing fetch should work again under all conditions. The ball may however no longer always be deleted from your inventory as we had to provide a workaround for an SL bug here.
*Feathers and balls will now also work at places with a lot of temporary prims.
*Cats which are over 120 days old will stay single when a partner attempt is made.

***********
