Miss Kitty411

Since my adorable kitties didn’t get to participate in the Beauty Pageant, could you all humor me and tell me which of my kitties is the prettiest?  🙂

Weekly Contests

We will be having weekly contests here at Kitty411! They’ll be a variety of contests to appeal to many kinds of players, so I hope you’ll join us whenever you can.

I’ve been wanting to have more contests for a while, but I wasn’t sure what to do for prizes. I wanted to have prizes that were both fun and valuable, and I wanted to publicly celebrate the winning kitty. But how would I do that? I was at a loss.

Then, a few days ago, I had an idea.

KittyHats is known for making fun kitty accessories, but those cute fedoras are actually real blockchain tokens that add value to your kitties.

Of course! That was the answer! I contacted the KittyHats team to see if they would create exclusive gold medals for Kitty411 contest winners, and I was overjoyed when they agreed.

So, each week, we will be giving away an exclusive Kitty411 Gold Medal to the contest winner. These gold medals are real blockchain tokens that will forever affirm that your kitty is an award-winning kitty. These are exclusive tokens–only 52 of these gold medals will ever exist and they cannot be purchased. The only way to get one is by winning one of our contests.

Without further ado, I’d like to announce our contest for this week. We are having a…

Kitty Battle!

That’s right, folks! We’re finally going to start battling these kitties!

Kitties, put on your helmets! Put on your Zorro costumes! This battle will test the mettle of even the bravest of cats!

To see the rules and enter your kitty, please visit our Contest page. In addition to a gold medal, this week’s winner will also receive a free kitty and a limited-edition KittyHats football helmet.

Kitties must be entered by Thursday, and the Battle will take place on Friday, Feb 2, at 10:00 p.m. EST. Can’t wait to see you there!


Also, KittyHats just updated their extension today! It’s got improved functionality and…NEW ACCESSORIES! They’re expanding their selection while simultaneously keeping quantities limited (you know, so your kitty won’t accidentally wear the same outfit to the dance as Sassy Cat).

The football helmets are especially limited. You can only get them for a few days (until the Super Bowl on Feb. 4).

Breeding Calculators

When you’re breeding cats, it’s nice to know what traits are likely to be passed on to offspring. It helps you make better decisions.

When CryptoKitties started getting popular, a lot of people started making “breeding calculators” even though the cats’ genetics weren’t fully understood. These calculators relied on anything from guessing to machine learning, but basically all of them were inaccurate to some degree.

Now that the genetics have been cracked and the smart contract analyzed, it’s possible to have breeding calculators that are exact and accurate. But a lot of the incorrect calculators still exist on the web!

There are, however, a few really good calculators. I really like KittyCalc.co and KittyAppX.

KittyCalc shows the breeding outcomes visually in a donut chart and also rates the traits on attractiveness (subjectively, of course). It also specifies which traits may appear as a result of mutation.

The interesting thing about KittyCalc is that it was created by players who not only understand the true math behind the breeding algorithm but are artists as well. As a result, they’ve incorporated suggestions on what traits pair well together.

They did, however, get one detail embarrassingly wrong. “Thicccbrowz” is a FIVE-STAR trait, you guys!! What are you thinking??

Pfff. Cookie and I are deeply offended.
