The Cat Cookie Cutter and Kitty Tray have undergone some enhancements!
You will now find that the Cat Cookie Cutter has 65 charges (up from 5), and the Kitty Tray now has 50 charges (up from 10). Hopefully this helps with your Chaos Cooking endeavors! We'll see how this goes before making any further changes.
Since these two items are the newest non-holiday cooking equipment/ingredient items we've had in a while, we realized our cooking cabinet could use some sprucing up. That's why we are now taking your cooking item suggestions in the Think Tank! If you have a cooking equipment or ingredient idea, we'd love to hear it!
Thank you! :3

Before you say it...
... I have not put anything in the water!
This new skin for your HA to slip on is courtesy of spock-sickle (#44622), who has requested it to be stocked in Trash for Treasure for a whole month!
The skin will leave the shop at 11:59pm on May 5th - that should be plenty of time to rustle up the points for one, I should think ;)

Seasonal Shop Reminder
You have a little over 24 hours to spend any remaining Blossom Points in the Seasonal Shop, which will be closing its doors after April 5th at 11:59 p.m.!
I also wanted to give everyone an update on one of our programmers, Yasu, who has been enduring some severe weather and bouts of power outages over the last week+. As soon as things are stable for him, we should be able to get the Blossoming Friendship Theme up and working for everyone. Thanks for your patience! ;~;

There's a horrible screeching sound as all the Slashbots self-destruct. Pieces of metal are littered all around pets' and avatars' feet.
The dark crown grows stronger... but there are others who are planning resistance, who meet in the shadows.
(Part II to commence soon)

Welcome to April!
Welcome to April!
It's time to sow the seeds of a new month here on Aywas, and we've got plenty of pets and items to shower you with!
The GP Shop pets are preparing for beautiful rainy days ahead--both indoors and outside.
The BP Shop pets are ready for springtime adventures, too!
If you colored one of these peppy pets, please contact Kyu (#1010) for your payment!
Make sure to include your PayPal address if you are opting for the USD option.
We will also be collecting pet PSDs directly from the thread, so you no longer have to send them in. However, please make sure you keep the links active for two weeks (at least until mid-April) so we have time to grab 'em! Thanks! :3
Drink to a new season with the Essence of April 2014!
This fresh, nutty potion (inspired by National Pecan Month) will turn your active pet into a random monthly pet from the assortment above.
The Premium Monthly Item is a Derpy Dragon that does nothing but sit in your inventory and tempt you to exchange it for trash points! Congratulations!
(I'm really bad at this whole joke thing, so please don't actually discard your Derpy Dragon! XD He is really a BC breeding add-on that will give you an extra, unbreedable offspring with some fun filters applied.)
As April dawned on the skies of Ay and Ara, a new Lunaris zodiac set emerged!
Inspired by Celtic tree astrology, the Alder Lunaris is the first in a set of thirteen that correspond to lunar months. The alder month is technically March 18 - April 14, so the Alder Lunaris will be available until April 14th, and then will reappear next year at the end of March before we switch over to a new theme. Don't worry, I'll make announcements regarding all of the switches, and you'll find the dates in the Lunaris Aywapedia entries. :3 We hope you enjoy the new theme!
Visit the birthday link on your big day to receive this Aywas gift!
I have also created a new Knowledge Base article for our favorite birthday pets -- Aywas Astrology: Lunaris Zodiac Sets. You'll see information on our newest theme appearing there soon. c:
The new monthly contests have been announced!
May Monthly Pets - BP Shop: Enter
May Monthly Pets - GP Shop: Enter
May Monthly Customs
Good luck with your entries!
The Nova custom makers have returned to the GP/BP Shops where they will remain for April and May, then will cycle back into the Premium store for June.
A monthly update from behind the scenes!
I thought I had behind-the-screen information to share with you, but it seems Eve has done something with our programmers. |: Hmph.
Well, I can tell you that we will be hiring moderators this month, enjoying some holiday festivities (Easter Egg field, anyone?) and a few other surprises!
In case you missed it, it's also hybrid breeding season and we're running some special deals, so make sure you check out Slash's post below to see our new genera, items, and more!
