Dhu kitten

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

Dhu kittens are ambient pets which can be carried in the arms or within a special "home" sack. Kittens can sometimes be altered by merchants, and their "home" sacks are almost always able to be customized. They were originally offered as a quest souvenir on the 2004 run of the Dhu Gillywack.

Once a kitten is attuned, it will not be able to be placed in any container other than its "home" sack. Once in the sack, however, the kitten can be placed in a locker or another container. In order to transfer a kitten to another player, it will have to be GIVEn twice.

Kittens can be interacted with in a variety of ways. One can feed them appropriate foods such as fish, but only when they are hungry.

Kittens are occasionally raffled off, or can be purchased from other players.
