MoonCats are a collection of 25,440 generative pixel art cats created on August 9th, 2017 on the Ethereum blockchain by the development team, ponderware. The MoonCatRescue project has spun a playful lore about these colorful felines that were "Rescued" (minted) onto the blockchain to now be permanent residents there.
MoonCatRescue has 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, a wonderful community has continued to grow around it.
The MoonCatRescue team 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 on this site. The original MoonCatRescue site will be accesible as a relic representing the project 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 Already that copy has grown long in the paw (with its outdated instructions and claims of $0.50 gas!), but as a key piece of the lore and history of the project, we'll keep a copy of that site accessible for those who wish to experience it in that form.

Chainstation Alpha is a large station. Even with over 25,000 MoonCats added to its population after the rescue, and both the Etherians and MoonCats happily browsing the Boutique , enjoying fizzy refreshment , and taking part in various research and education experiences happening on the station hasn't made it over-crowded inside.
