Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something's coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something's coming, I don't know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!

— West Side Story, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Well, actually, we do know what it is. You asked for it! So many said, "If only someone in SL would make a cat as great as my VKC dogs…." And now, someone has! And not just any someone. At noon SLT on Saturday, 24 November 2012, Enrico Genosse and the VKC will release the Black Cat!

The Black Cat will purr, screech, bat toys, pounce, and clean his face when you least expect it. As smart as the VKC Dogs, the Cat is able to learn and obey but, because he is a cat, he sometimes may not do as you ask. The creator calls this Artificial Disobedience. However, if you lose patience with your cat, you can always turn this feature off and your cat instantly will be as obedient as any VKC animal.

Carry your cat in your arms, change his collar to match your outfit, hear his little bell jingle when he walks. Stroke him, pet him, or scratch his tummy; he has three different petting animations. He is dual mode, so you can choose Pathfinding or Traditional mode.

The Black Cat has most of the features that your VKC Dogs enjoy. You can teach tricks and marks as usual. You can nominate a friend with the “friend” command or mute someone who keeps pestering your cat. If your cat gets sick, you can take him to the VKC Clinic to make him well again and if he gets lost, you’ll be able to retrieve him at one of the Clinics in the VKC Parks, just like the dogs.

Arriving on the scene carrying his corduroy kitty toy, a wee mousey, he soon will be able to choose from a variety of kitty toys that you will want to get for him, some free and some for sale by VKC Registered Creators who are working on some new cat toys. Your VKC Cat doesn’t like the dogs’ toys though so he won’t pick them up, and who can blame him? If you were a cat, you probably wouldn’t want to pick up things the dogs had been slobbering over either. But watch out Kitty, the dogs can still carry your toys off!

The VKC Cat will be available at the special introductory adoption fee of L$2000 for the first 24 hours. After noon on November 25, his fee is L$3000.
