After way too many false starts and abortive attempts, I've finally managed to cobble together enough hints to build a proof-of-concept extension for proudly displaying your cats upon the "Possessions" tab!

Here is how it looks:



At the moment, only Chrome/Firefox/Opera are supported.

Current version: 1.4

Grab it here:

I do not have a Soundcloud, but please consider sending a "Parabollan Kitten" my way if this extension brings you joy. Or a photo of your cat, whichever is more convenient. wink

(There is also a discussion thread on Reddit!)

The people able to hand out kittens are few and far between -- anything else you might appreciate?

It was more of tongue-in-cheek panhandling, but I have literally no idea what to ask in return (Fate has real value and is out of the question, of course)...

Any cute cat pictures, guv?

As it happens, I have a house full of cats. No, really. So pics are a definite possibility.

Works nicely, except it's called "Test slot 3" rather than "Cats, Assorted".(I downloaded the FF version via FF add-ons)

Thank you! That is strange, although I understand somewhat how it could happen.

It did not occur when I tested installing it from Mozilla Add-on Stire on fresh Firefox. Could you possibly try and see if it is fixed after restarting your browser? If not, I would like to follow up with you regarding this. smile

Splendid! Post them at your convenience.

No matter, I managed to reproduce this bug and will fix it shortly. Stay tuned! smile

My FF version is the latest update, in case you were wondering. But it made me realise how many Neathy kitties I am still lacking!

Mozilla Store should have version 1.3 by now, it contains a fix for that specific issue. smile

I installed this, more as an exercise than for use, but I am now sad that I only have 2 cats. I only have 2 in my RL home, too, but that seems quite satisfactory.

Edit: it seems to alternate between assorted cats and test slot 3 on reload. Chrome, webstore version.

Send me anything you like. Be decent, though. Bad stuff is fine if you attach a warning.

Oh, I can relate! That is why my quest to gain all possible felines only takes place in the Fifth City. Big Grin Although I will be forever short of one Short-Tempered Shorthair...

This is sadly due to Chrome Web Store reviews being slower than Mozilla ones. ;(

I will be taking steps to try and rectify this, but in the meantime, you can try to install the version from GitHub manually... or wait a couple of days till the update goes through and will arrive at you automagically. smile

Thanks. No fuss. I don't care enough to do it right now, there's fishing to be done!

I love this extension -- thank you for putting this together!

As compensation, may I offer a feline photo essay? (As a Neath cat, he would be unstoppable. I am convinced he has a secret lab in the basement -- he steals all kinds of shiny things, including screwdrivers and any pair of scissors that he can manage to carry in his mouth.)

Glad it was to your liking! As a fellow feline aficionado, I appreciate the effort you put into this essay and the cunning of Vladimir. May he live long and prosper!

Ooooh, lovely extension. My cat army just needed something like this.

Although, for some reason, the Grubby Kitten is not appearing alongside the other cats, he seems to have been left behind with the non-feline companions. I'm using chrome and downloaded the extension from the store, if that helps.

Oh, that _is_ an oversight on my part - I have Freya from the "Mr Chimes Lost And Found" which uses the same picture. So I thought Grubby Kitten was sorted out already :\ But no worries, I will push out an update soon that will fix that unfortunate mistake!

LOVED the essay. As a raveller I have some photos of cats assisting with knitting. I do have a Whovian themed one, (Tardis shawlette) but sadly no Trek themed for Alasterin, though I am a Trek fan.

From my certain knowledge, it's the same thing keyboards and blank sheets of paper are for...

Thank you! My assorted cats needed this! I don't have any cat pictures, but perhaps a reference will do?
