How about when you cats mate, the females get pregnant, and you could get the kits rpers and give them to humans and cats? You could even have a place where people see your biography and another cat's biography, and ppl could ask if you and someone else have sex and give them one of the kits. I think it would be really cool.

This is WRONG. Remember, Jesus knows what you're doing. He sees what you're doing. He despises what you're doing.
