Market - This is our online cat sales market. Breeders often list cats/kittens for sale, and you can search here very specifically, for a particular cat or set of traits you are looking for.
NOTE: To list your cat on market: Kittens have a MARKET ON and MARKET OFF button. It is as simple as clicking the MARKET ON button and it will be listed, with the SLURL of where it can be found. Live Cats have a MARKET button on the first page of their menu, and then inside there is the ON and OFF option.
If your cats are versions 1.44, you will NOT have the market option. You must update your cats to V1.44a to have this option.
If you choose to list a cat through the Web Tools Market (and you can), however it will not show a SLURL if you do it that way. Web Tools has no way of knowing where in the world of Second Life you have rezzed that cat.
