At first the puddles of moon vomit were thought to be caused by a combination of expired space tuna and gleeful overindulgence in MoonCatPop. Analysis of these floor rainbows, however, revealed a unique chemical signature our systems matched to an experimental pixel-solvent from an abandoned research project.
MoonCats had stolen their way into a decomissioned lab on Level 1, where Ethereans had long ago experimented with solidity materialization techniques. There we found Zer0, hammer in paw, attempting a retrofit. We later determined that it was these engineering attempts that had caused the leaks of cryonic residue which the MoonCats had been sampling, and regurgitating.
MoonCats were having an existential crisis. They knew they were on-chain, but they couldn't see themselves on-chain. Did they exist at all?
Once we understood what they were trying to accomplish, a crack team of specialists joined Zer0's felingineers. It was months of hard work - claws were torn, songs were yowled in camaraderie. And then it was done. The MoonCats lined up and, one by one, were fully materialized onto the blockchain.
The MoonCats now nap peacefully, knowing their legacy is chiseled forever into the solid blocks of the Ethereum network.

MoonCatRescue sprouted an amazing grass-roots community of Rescuers, Adopters, Artists, Programmers, and Enthusiasts. People rose to the challenge of reviving a mission half-finished and almost fully forgotten, and saw it through. Though ponderware initially started the MoonCatRescue mission, we can't take credit for the wonderful community growing around it.
Ponderware is grateful to have been welcomed into that community. Together, we hope to expand on the world of MoonCatRescue, adding content and value to the ecosystem as a whole. We hope to explore, delight, and educate in the spirit of the original contract.
New developments and updates will be posted here. We want to maintain the MoonCatRescue site as it is now: largely preserved as it was in 2017. Already that copy has grown long in the paw (with its outdated instructions and claims of $0.50 gas), but it doesn’t feel right to take it down or substantially alter it. The MoonCatRescue homepage has received its last update.
