Interactions and Petting

 

The Interact menu allows interaction with your cat in a variety of fun ways!

 

Click cat for the menu, select Interact, then select an Interaction.

 

Interactions marked with an asterisk (*) will give your cat a boost to Happiness which will last 24 hours and increase its Love.

If your cat is a Perma-Pet™ the interactions will not be marked with an asterix, since they cannot breed.

 

 

Some Interactions are restricted by size. 

For example:

• Cats 0-31cm will have the interactions R.Shoulder, Lay, Sit, CatAvatar, ScreenPet, L.Shoulder, Play, and Walk.

 

• Cats sized 31-157cm will have the interactions Hold, Lay, Sit, CatAvatar, ScreenPet, Cuddle, Play, and Walk.

 

• Cats sized 157-202cm will have the interactions CatAvatar, ScreenPet, Play, and Walk available. 

 

 

After choosing an Interaction, you may be asked to Attach to and Animate your avatar. Be sure to select "Yes"!

 

 

Experiences

You can also bypass this part of the process by enabling the KittyCatS! Experience.

Set the KittyCatS! experience for yourself as an avatar, and on parcels you manage

to avoid the permission-granting step when playing, riding, petting, etc.

Once set for yourself, you will be asked permission for all cats and their items, 

and won't be asked at any place which has the the KittyCatS! experience enabled.

NOTE: Experiences are not featured in the Singularity Viewer. You can however log in using the

Firestorm Viewer and set your Experience as shown below, then log out and continue using your Singularity viewer.

Once set in Firestorm, the Experiences will continue to work in Singularity.

 

To enable an Experience for your Avatar, go to your Avatar menu and select Experiences:

Next type "kittycats" into the search bar and find the KittyCatS! Experience owned by KittyCats Resident.

Select this Experience and then click OK.

To confirm you have the Experience enabled, click on the Allowed tab and look for the KittyCatS! Experience listed there.

By doing this your cats will not need to ask permission to attach to and animate your avatar!

 

To enable an Experience for your parcel, go to your About Land menu and select Experiences.

 

On the Experiences tab, click the "Add" button next to "Allowed Experiences".

 

Next type "kittycats" into the search bar and find the KittyCatS! Experience owned by KittyCats Resident.

Select this Experience and then click OK.

 

The KittyCatS experience will now show under the "Allowed Experiences" section.

 

Stopping Interactions:

When you are done interacting, right click the cat and select Drop from the pie menu. 

Make sure you're on land where you have rezzing rights. Wear the land group tag if necessary.

It is important that you choose Drop and not Detach. Choosing Detach could cause your cat to disappear!

 

Below are examples of the various Interactions you can choose.

or click the cat to minimize it and watch your kitty blink as it watches you!

To do that, go to the Avatar menu on your SL viewer and select Appearance (or press CTRL-O).

On the Appearance window, select "Save As" to save your current avatar as an outfit.

Name it something you will remember and then click "Ok" to save it.

Your saved outfit will appear in your inventory in the "Outfit" folder.

Depending on the version of your cat, you may get another popup asking you to allow you cat to

Attach to and Animate your avatar. If you do, be sure to select "Yes"!

 

Your SL avatar will disappear, your cat will attach itself to you and you can walk or fly around as your cat!

 

The fly animation even comes with a color-change hoverboard! Try it yourself!
