Breeding Your Ani‑Cat
If your HUD isn't already opened, touch it to open it.
Touch the first cat of the pair you wish to mate. This can be the male or the female, at your discretion. At this time, your HUD will move to the 'Single Cat' display, and the trait and stat data for that cat will be shown at the top of the HUD.
Touch the Mate button on the lower right display area of the HUD. That texture looks like this:
After touching the mate icon, you will receive a blue dialog box as part of the first step of the mating process. This box questions whether you wish to Mate or Marry the two pets together.
Once you have selected either Mate or Marry, you will receive a dialog box directing you to touch the pet you wish to mate with the first Ani-Cat. As you touch pets, if they're already mated, or if they're the wrong gender to mate with the selected cat, you will be informed and allowed to touch another cat.
After selecting a suitable mate for your Ani-Cat, you will be shown the Id numbers of each cat and questioned if that is the mating you want. If you touch an Ani-Cat owned by a different breeder, they will get the request to approve the mating, as the other breeder must be involved for this to happen successfully.
Once the mating of two cats has been approved, you will recieve a dialog box pop-up that informs you of the successful mating between the Ani-Cats.
As soon as both cats reach 100% heat, the female will become pregnant and start progressing through the rest of the reproductive cycle. When the female is pregnant, that status will show in her hovertext, as seen in the picture here. Aww, little Darcy is gonna be a momma. She’s adorable ♥
Now is a very good time to ensure that the Allow Mating icon is enabled for each cat of this pairing. If that icon isn't selected, these cats will be mated, but one or both of them may not seek out milk because mating was turned off.
Purrturition, or gestation, takes 3 days. You’ll also notice in the picture above that the text has changed to white as she is no longer ready to mate. Her status has changed to Pregnant and below Pregnant you will see the countdown to baby. No more doing the math on your fingers. Her hovertext will tell you exactly how long you must wait to meet her baby, assuming the mother continues to have milk available. Should you decide that 3 days is too long to wait for the baby, Stork Potions can be purchased in the Ani-Cats Store. Applying a potion will birth the baby almost immediately.
So now you’ve watched the countdown and waited patiently for your kitten, or not so patiently if you’ve used a potion. Your kitten bundle will appear around your cat bed. Once the bundle appears, you can choose to birth the kitten or set it aside for auction or sale in a marketplace. What do you do with the bundle? Learn about bundles here. Congratulations! You’ve bred your first Ani-Cat Kitten.Don't forget to share with everyone in group chat what traits you've found!
