They say it killed the cat. What’s it gonna do to me?
I sneaked on to the Kittycats sim recently because someone left the door open, and I was curious. I got a peek at the new home of the Kittycats, the cutest breedable kittens on the grid.
Amid the relaxing gardens is a beautiful neoclassical building and inside, the teaser posters for these cute kitties. I have heard from beta testers that they are hooked. One even suggested that she would replace her men with kittens—they are cuter and sweeter. (The Girlfriends have been taking photos of Catty Loon’s beta kittens incessantly.)
I found a couple lounging around on a park bench nearby outside, which is reminiscent of Central Park. The cats are not just breedable—you can buy a couple as companions and never breed them. I could almost like that (and become SL’s first cat lady–great).
I couldn’t help but sneak in some fashion while I was here. I am wearing a great little dress from Shinichi Mathy. Sometimes well-made system pieces with simple prims are all you need, and Shinichi proves this with his elegant, chicly textured sheath and sexy boots from Enktan Gully and LeeZu Baxter.
A slight interruption in the proceedings here to discuss my skin, which is a new offering from Apple May. I thought Apple only did clothing ‘til she approached me to see her work, and I was pleasantly surprised. (I say that because clothing makers seldom are able to make the leap to doing skins successfully.) The set I saw was subtle—the base has a very neutral lip and no eye makeup. It’s in piling on the layers of Apple’s tattoo layers where it gets interesting. I was able to wear this gorgeous golden lip, a great subtle eyeshadow and lashes (goodbye gray prims rezzing around my eyes!) as I clicked “Add” in V2.4. Right now the ability to wear up to 5 layers is restricted to v2.4 as far as I know. (It’s worth downloading. I found V2.4 much less clunky then previous versions and it was incredibly stable for me, which is a huge win.) I give Apple a thumbs up and suggest this skin for women who want something not so showy.
When is the Kittycats sim going to open? I hear sometime in January. Guess it’s down to sitting and waiting outside with this darling kitten. (Notice he’s blinking—awww…)
(I really have to say that the cuteness thing is unnerving for me. I don’t pull it off well. But the kittens really ARE cute—believe me on this.)
