A reminder: mating and kitting must not be roleplayed on the boards.
1. You may not create pregnant queens; queens must have an in-character mate before they can have kits through/during roleplay. You can, however, create a queen that has already kitted, and create additional profiles for her kit/s (or a request/adoption thread to find players for said kits).
2. Staff permission is required before female Leaders, Deputies, and Medicine Cats have kits, as this will have severe in-character repercussions. Elders and apprentices cannot have kits under any circumstances.
3. The owners of both cats must agree both to the relationship, and to the production of kits. In addition, both cats must be a minimum of 12 moons before they are able to have kits.
4. Both cats must be roleplayed together for a minimum of one month before they have a litter (exceptions may be made for warrior X rogue / lone pairings). Consider this your time to get to know the other member and their character, and develop the in-character relationship.
5. Note that the WarriorXRogue/Lone trait is a limited trait, and as such you must have staff permission to create such a litter.
6. Litters should be requested using the provided form (see below), which should be PM’ed directly to Greymuzzles for approval. Both parents will be notified once this application is accepted, and the she-cat’s pregnancy can begin thereafter.
7. The pregnancy should last for a minimum of two weeks. After this time, you/other members will be permitted to begin roleplaying the kits. Note that you free to rapid-age the litter if it suits you, but all kits from the same litter should be aged together.
8. Newborn kits must have basic profiles within two weeks of their first appearances on the boards. Kits that have not been claimed and do not have profiles by the end of this time frame should be killed-off in roleplay. Note that the owner of the queen has the final say in who will play the kits in their cat’s litter.
