The WK – Wild Kajaera Breedable Animals are pretty automatic in many ways.
The wolves will eat twice a day.
The wolves will grow over 10 days to full size.
The wolves will die if unfed for more then 30 days and you will not be able to get them back, death is permanent.
The wolves will breed on your time table up to 10 litters.
The wolves will live for as long as you feed them, or turn them into a forever pet.
The wolves are sold live to you from WK crates, but will give birth to what we like to call, a birth sack. The birth sack is not a live birth until you choose to birth it. The birth sacks are 6 prims.
The wolves heat will rise in 5 days provided that there is at least a level of 50 in happy with out the use of any WK Booster.
The wolves pregnancy cycle last 5 days with out the use of any WK Booster and as long as the wolves are health meaning their happy is at least 60 or higher and their hunger is at 0.
WK food is server side feeding. This means your wolves will eat what ever food you have in your WK inventory. (WK inventory is what your WK Portal ~items tab ~ shows you own.) http://portal.wildkajaera.com Simply log in and see, if you need your login click the Activates my Web Portal sign again at any of your nearest WK stores.
Pet Food is what you will need for the wolves age 0-2 or non breeding wolves. All wolves 0-2 that are this young do not have a option to eat breeding food so having a bit of pet food on hand is a good idea. If you have bought the wolves from us your crate will come with pet food.
~~Your wolves text will turn to yellow if they miss a meal. If they miss 10 meals it will go to red and you will need a healing bowl of cream to get them eating again.
~~Wolves unfed for 30 days or more will become inactive and won’t be restored to SL.
At the age of 3 you will get a menu option for breeding. If you choose to turn breeding on you will need WKBreedingFoodBowl and WKHappyBowl they will start eating this the next meal. As they eat the food heat wont start to rise right away it will as soon as the Heat engine sees they have a Happy level of 50.
Moxie is also a factor in this that they have to have Moxie of greater then 60 for pregnancy to accrue.
~~If you happen to run out of food again the stat will turn to yellow as soon as they miss one meal. If they miss 10 meals it will go to red and you will need a healing bowl of cream to get them eating again.
~~If they become hungry or moxie drops to 60 or below Pregnancy will stall this is both males and females have to be in good health to have the pup/s.
~~Healing cream will give them 20 of the food stat, and they will eat their way back to health by double meals until they reach 0 food.
WKHappyBowl is what can make the wolves happy. It comes in the form of a rawhide bone in a bowl. There is no warning if WKHappyBowl runs out so check this also when you check your food levels.
Checking your food levels via the portal is simple at http://portal.wildkajaera.com Simply log in and see, if you need your login click the Activates my Web Portal sign again at any of your nearest WK stores. Once inside click the items tab to see all your items and levels.
~~If they are completely empty simple rezz them in SL and click the menu Delete button this will remove them from your WK inventory. The wolves will eat from the lowest portion bowl first depending on the food they are set to.
What to expect ~ on key days
As with new born pups in the real world they are born with there eyes closed and will open 12 hours after being born.
The animations are automatic in their stationary pose. They will shift about as if they were trying to gain strength to walk. When they reach 1 day of age the wolves will be able to move
Food is default set to pet food, which is the only food needed until they are 3 days old.
*IF you wish to breed the wolves, you can place them on breed food at day 3 and supply them with WKBreedingFoodBowl and WKHappyBowl.
They are now strong enough to start moving about.
Turn Motion on Menu > Motion > Motion On
The Menu will change to add in the Breed option. If you intend to breed them you will need to click them and turn breeding on. Menu > Breeding > On. Make sure you have WKBreedingFoodBowl and WKHappyBowl or they will start to get hungry. If you ever want to stop their breeding simply click them again to get the Menu > Breeding > Pet. This will switch them back to basic pet food and they will no longer be eating WKBreedingFoodBowl and WKHappyBowl.
By now you are fully enjoying the pups and there behaviors.
If Breeding was turned on at age 3 you will start to see the heat rise at this age.
When Breeding is On wolves will eat both WKBreedingFoodBowl and WKHappyBowl but the heat wont rise until the wolves are 6 and have reached a value of 50 in the happy field.
☪ Moxie (time in world/energy)
♨ Hunger (food)
Moxie is our term for knowing if your animal is rezzed out in the SL world and if were able to keep good communication with it. You may note on your dashboard in the portal log in section that animals may go inactive, when inactive were unable to talk to them or they are unable to talk to us. Moxie will calculate 10 points on its birthday and if breeding on some of the breeding advancements Moxie needs to be greater then 60 for breeding to move if less then breeding will stop. It will resume once again as soon as Moxie is once again above 60.
Sleep has been recently added because a few of you had expressed concern over the length of time that they sleep. Most wolves in general will spend a lot of time sleeping trying to mimic a natural wolf behavior the wolves will sleep. This has no effect on the wolves breeding, it is its life cycle as it is younger it may be able to stay more awake and a active then when it gets older. We are sure that you all can appreciate the need for a nap from time to time. This stat is simply a timer for when the wolf needs to sleep and a visual for you to understand them better.
Your wolves hunger stat will increase to 10 if they miss a meal, if a meal has been missed the stats will change to Yellow indicating that they have and for you to check the food supply. All breeding is stopped until more food is obtained. If they get to 100 the stat will change to red indicating that they are sick, to encourage them to eat again you will need a Healing Bowl of Cream. You have until the Hunger Stat reaches 161 to restore there health if they reach 161 they will become to ill and die from lack of of care. You will not be able to get them back at this point.
WKHappyBowl is what will increase your wolves happiness.
When on WKBreedingFoodBowl and happy is 50 % or greater the heat will rise.
Menu Buttons and what they do ~
Wolf will first get the option for breeding at the age of 3.
Until the age of 3 you will not see a breed button.
If you have no breed button check the age of the wolf you are looking at if it is 0 – 2 it is too young to breed and there will be NO BUTTON for BREEDING
If they are 3 or older you will have a option to breed them.
Under this option you will need to turn breeding ON. Once breeding is on you will get a message in chat telling you that they will now eat WKBreedingFoodBowl and WKHappyBowl to make their heat rise. However the heat wont rise until the wolf has reached a age of 6 and has a value of 50 in the happy field.
You can mate the wolf with your own wolves, with wolves set to a certain group, or with everyone’s on the same sim as long as they are all set to everyone.

How to Remove a wolf from your WK Inventory
You sell a WK Wolves and sacks the same way you sell most things in SL. Edit> price.
Each owner will get one free pass on each of their wolves. You can not however pass a wolf back to a old owner you must sell it back.
For example; Bob passes a wolf to Sue. Sue is the new owner of the wolf but needs to give the wolf back to Bob she can not simply pass it back to Bob because he was a previous owner. Sue must sell the wolf back even if it is at 0 L’s to get the wolf back to Bob.
Now Delete is a button I would really encourage you not to push, there is a much better option but I will get to that in a moment. If you do not want the points that go along with the wolf in question you will push this button. If however you might at some point want the points from this animal DO NOT PUSH DELETE you will LOSE any and ALL points.
Sanctuary is permanent Sanctuary is for those wolves that you do not want to bother trying to sell in a secondary market. We will credit your Sanctuary register with a point value based on the wolf at the time of turn in. Factors that go into determining of the point value will be everything from age to all of its traits.
Sanctuary Points may be used to buy different items from the Sanctuary.
Such as limited addition wolves only made available to breeders who use the sanctuary.
Boosters to help your wolf when needed or to speed things along, when you just can’t wait.
Do not buy OR sell outdated wolves or sacks. The current version for wolves is on WK ~ animals tab. For sacks is on MY WK ~ sacks tab.
~~WK Wolves get updated often, like good computers they must be kept up to date. MOOG is your update system.
DO NOT pass or sell a wolf once it has reached 90% pregnant. You confuse the mother as to who owns the pup.
