Adoption Agency: Starlight Tavern run by Starlight Tavern

| Agency Display | Species | Breeds | Mutations | Items | Search | Breedings | Store |

Basically, a 'Tavern Cat' started out as a barn cat that kept company at the taverns. They were most often picked off the street, and any significant breed standards were quickly lost. However, as time went on, they grew more empathetic towards humans; more intelligent. Before long it was impossible for even the most narrow-minded to deny that they were sentient life, and today they are considered close companions. They lead the wandering home. They are a warm body on a cold night. A guardian in the dark. They are the cats of the Starlight Tavern.



On top of a hill, sits a misshapen building built of wood and stone. Windows shine light into the dusk and music filters from the building. It is a tavern. The crouched shape of the stables sits off to the west of the tavern. The grounds around seem a bit wild, with climbing ivy overtaking one side shaded by a squat maple. There are various bushes and scattered patches of tall grass guarding the tavern, but the path leading up to the door is cleared of obstacles and paved with slate.

It isn't long until you spot a sleek cat sitting in one of the front windows, who blinks in hello before turning and jumping back into the tavern. There seems to be a scuffle as the cat lands - presumably on another cat judging by the sounds - and then another wanders through the open doorway, tail waving. There's a slightly ruffled look to the tail, but you know better than to point it out. The cat sees it has your attention and jumps up a pile of haphazardly stacked crates to paw at a hanging wooden sign.

It has "Welcome to the Starlight Tavern!" painted on it with messy strokes.


SUBMITTING A BREEDING THROUGH THE SITE
1. Go to Your Account
2. Click Use Agency Items
3. Select Starlight Tavern, under first drop down
4. Select Essence of Health. Do not select a tavern cat or enter text.
5. Enter System Ids and submit. You may select items or enter a comment if you wish.

If at least one of the pets are yours, you need to do this. Else, the owner(s) of the cats you are borrowing need to do this.
6. Click View Agency Breedings and repeat step 3
7. Click Approve Breeding for the respective pet(s)

At this point you just need to wait! I will not see the breeding until both mom and dad have been approved. Feel free to let me know you have submitted a breeding.

Once I have colored the breeding, I will clear the breeding and remove any items used during the process (since this is manual, just let me know if you changed your mind on the item).


A BASIC GUIDE TO TAVERN CAT GENETICS
(This guide does not necessarily apply to cats with IDs less than or equal to 435. Please contact me if you wish to update these cats!)

Tavern cats are based predominantly on how cat genetics work in real life. The most obvious exception to this is that male tavern cats have the same likelihood to be tortoiseshell/calico as female cats.

There are 12 official colors: Black, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Amber, Orange, Blue, Lilac, Fawn, Light Amber, Cream, Caramel, and Apricot. Orange, Cream, and Apricot are all derivatives of the "Red" gene while the rest are derivatives of the "Black" gene. Tortoiseshells are a combination of one black color and the corresponding red color.

There are 11 official tabby patterns: Ticked, Residual, Spotted, Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled, and of course, Self, or the lack of tabby.
The list below shows all the potential patterns from any match-up. PLEASE NOTE: Most tavern cats cannot produce the full range listed. Some Mackerels might only ever breed Mackerels regardless of mate, for example.
  Ticked x Ticked = Ticked
  Ticked x Residual = Ticked or Residual
  Ticked x Everything else = Residual
  Residual x Residual = Everything
  Residual x Everything else = Everything but Ticked
  Spotted x Spotted = Spotted, Rosetted
  Spotted x Mackerel = Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Spotted x Classic = Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Spotted x Broken = Spotted, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Spotted x Sokoke = Spotted, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Spotted x Rosetted = Spotted, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Spotted x Braided = Spotted, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Spotted x Marbled = Spotted, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Mackerel x Mackerel = Mackerel, Classic, Braided, Marbled
  Mackerel x Classic = Mackerel, Classic, Braided, Marbled
  Mackerel x Broken = Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Mackerel x Sokoke = Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Mackerel x Rosetted = Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Mackerel x Braided = Mackerel, Braided, Marbled
  Mackerel x Marbled = Mackerel, Classic, Braided, Marbled
  Classic x Classic = Classic, Marbled
  Classic x Broken = Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Classic x Sokoke = Classic, Sokoke, Rosetted, Marbled
  Classic x Rosetted = Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Classic x Braided = Mackerel, Classic, Braided, Marbled
  Classic x Marbled = Classic, Marbled
  Broken x Broken = Spotted, Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Broken x Sokoke = Spotted, Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Broken x Rosetted = Spotted, Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Broken x Braided = Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Broken x Marbled = Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Sokoke x Sokoke = Spotted, Classic, Sokoke, Rosetted, Marbled
  Sokoke x Rosetted = Spotted, Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Sokoke x Braided = Mackerel, Classic, Broken, Sokoke, Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Sokoke x Marbled = Classic, Sokoke, Rosetted, Marbled
  Rosetted x Rosetted = Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Rosetted x Braided = Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Rosetted x Marbled = Rosetted, Braided, Marbled
  Braided x Braided = Braided, Marbled
  Braided x Marbled = Braided, Marbled
  Marbled x Marbled = Marbled

Tabbies can breed self based on genetics, while SelfxSelf always produces Self.

Tavern cats are either Silver or Golden. If you see neither in their description, they are golden by default.

Tavern cats can have shading or chinchilla. Whether they are silver shading/chinchilla or gold shading/chinchilla does not affect the shading/chinchilla.
  None x None = None
  None x Shading = None, Shading
  None x Chinchilla = Shading
  Shading x Shading = None, Shading, Chinchilla
  Shading x Chinchilla = Shading, Chinchilla
  Chinchilla x Chinchilla = Chinchilla

Tavern cats can also have points, which come as siamese, mink, or burmese. Just because it's a potential in the list below does not necessarily mean your cat can produce it.
  None x None = None, Siamese, Mink, Burmese
  None x Siamese = None, Siamese, Mink
  None x Mink = None, Siamese, Mink, Burmese
  None x Burmese = None, Mink, Burmese
  Siamese x Siamese = Siamese
  Siamese x Mink = Siamese, Mink, Burmese
  Siamese x Burmese = Mink
  Mink x Mink = Siamese, Mink, Burmese
  Mink x Burmese =  Mink, Burmese
  Burmese x Burmese = Burmese

Finally, white:
 None/Little x None/Little = None/Little
 Lots x Lots = Lots
 Medium x Medium = full range
 None/Little x Medium = None/Little to Medium
 Medium x Lots = Medium to Lots
