It should be compatible with most known cat races and species, though ocelots and bobtails can cause problems from time to time and unfortunately Egyptian Hairless causes a fatal error for some unknown reason.

Thank You! I invariably find nuggets in your newsletters that I somehow managed to miss.

I'd like to receive a notification every time a new overview is up, but not sure how to do it as it will be a new thread every time.

EDIT: I'll be ... is it really as simple as subscribing to this forum? I've been here for more than two years and it only just now occurred to me to check whether I can subscribe to a forum and not just posts... :a03:

Sure, you would get notified on all other threads in here but since this forum isn't very crowded with threads and most of them will be the TwipCARS posts that should do the trick :)
