The WK – Wild Kajaera Breedable Animals are pretty automatic in many ways.
The cats will eat twice a day.
The cats will grow over 10 days to full size.
The cats will die if unfed for more then 30 days and you will not be able to get them back, death is permanent.
The cats will breed on your time table up to 10 litters.
The cats will live for as long as you feed them, or turn them into a forever pet.
The cats are sold live to you from WK crates, but will birth to what we like to cal, a birth sack. The birth sack is not a live birth until you choose to birth it. The birth sacks are 6 prims.
The cats heat will rise in a 5 day period provided that there is at least a level of 50 in happy stat with out the use of any WK Booster. This averages 20 points in a day.
The cats pregnancy cycle last 5 days with out the use of any WK Booster.
WK food is server side feeding. This means your cats will eat what ever food you have in your WK inventory. (WK inventory is what your MY WK ~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 ~
Pet Food is what you will need for the cats age 0-2 or non breeding cats. All cats 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 cats from us your crate will come with pet food.
~~Your cats 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.
~~Cats unfed for 30 days or more will become inactive and won’t be restored to SL.
Breeding Food ~
At the age of 3 you will get a menu option for breeding. If you choose to turn breeding on you will need WK Breeding Food and WK Catnip 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 cub/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.
Catnip is what can make the cats happy. It comes in two forms the first is a catnip plant that feeds all your cats set to breeding, or a Happy Teddy which feeds only the cat it is assigned to. There is no warning if catnip 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.
Boosters are not to any advantage until the cats are at least 6 days of age. Babies are not rush able. While we are on the subject of boosters they are design to assist you when you just can’t wait, or if the cats are out of sync with each other.
They come in a variety of types. These are single use items.
~~~Healing Bowl of Cream – gets them eating again when they are sick
~~~Snack Bowls – gets there food up when they missed a meal
~~~Elixir of Happiness – makes them 10 points happier
~~~Jar of Love Potion – makes them 10 points more in the mood for love. (2 allowed per cat in a day)
~~~Pregnancy Vitamin – boost the pregnancy up 10 points. (2 allowed per cat in a day)
~~~C-Section Blankets – makes a cat deliver when pregnancy reaches 90 or 95
*** When using a booster make sure to rezz one booster at a time and use before razzing the next. Or you may find you have used two and getting only one use.
What to expect ~ on key days
As with new born cubs 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 cats 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 cat, you can place them on breed food at day 3 and supply them with breed food and catnip
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 Breeding food and catnip 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 catnip or breeding food.
By now you are fully enjoying the cubs 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 cats will eat both catnip and breeding food but the heat wont rise until the cat are 6 and have reached a value of 50 in the happy field.
☪ Moxie (time in world/energy)
♨ Hunger (food)
☺ Happy (catnip)
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 cats in general will spend a lot of time sleeping trying to mimic a natural cat behavior the cats will sleep. This has no effect on the cats 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 cat needs to sleep and a visual for you to understand them better.
Your cats 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.
Catnip is what will increase your cats happiness.
When on breeding food and happy is 50 % or greater the heat will rise.
Menu Buttons and what they do
Cat will first get the option for breeding at the age of 3.

How to Remove a cat from your WK Inventory
You sell a WK cats and sacks the same way you sell most things in SL. Edit> price.
Each owner will get one free pass on each of their cats. You can not however pass a cat back to a old owner you must sell it back.
For example; Bob passes a cat to Sue. Sue is the new owner of the cat but needs to give the cat back to Bob she can not simply pass it back to Bob because he was a previous owner. Sue must sell the cat back even if it is at 0 L’s to get the cat 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 cat 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 permeant Sanctuary is for those cats 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 cat 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 cats only made available to breeders who use the sanctuary.
Boosters to help your cat when needed or to speed things along, when you just can’t wait.
Do not buy OR sell outdated cats or sacks. The current version for cats is on MY WK ~ animals tab. For sacks is on MY WK ~ sacks tab.
~~WK Cats get updated often, like good computers they must be kept up to date. MOOG is your update system.
DO NOT turn pet on in the cats menu IF you have chosen to breed them. Turning pet back on will remove any heat and happy instantly, and you will have to start over gaining this.
DO NOT pass or sell a cat once it has reached 90% pregnant. You confuse the mother as to who owns the cub.
