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 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 Already that copy has grown long in the paw (with its outdated instructions and claims of $0.50 gas), but it doesn’t feel right to take it down or substantially alter it.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.
Genesis MoonCats have always been a special and headstrong breed. You've probably heard the rumors already via a whisper in a corridor, or a quiet poignant purring, and it is indeed true. Twenty-four of the freshly Acclimated Genesis MoonCats have determined that they will transcend the traditional MoonCat/Etherean relationship and instead spread their love across large swaths of the community. They have pooled their adoption papers, split them into 10,000,000 shards, and offered us all an opportunity to share in their nobility. Still, that wasn't enough. With the spirit of the rescue mission fresh like spacetuna on their minds, they demanded that 400 Ethereans be selected at random to receive a portion of their gift. If you are among them , you can claim this rare opportunity over here .
In other news, the acclimation process continues to proceed smoothly. With gas prices falling, acclimation is more convenient than ever. There is an electricity in the air here on the station (more than what the electrostatic-cat-hair-collectors usually generate!); as, one by one, MoonCats adapt, the future is looking bright, and the possibilities are growing.
