What is a Sweeten?

Image
Sweetens (a portmanteau of "sweet", "kitten", and "sweeten", scientific name: Felis Sophius) are the result of an evolutionary branch to the domestic cat in an alternative dimension--they're like cats, but a bit smaller (around the size of a rabbit), they're known to have much more variety in colors, markings, and features, and they also evolved to have wings on their backs and feet! This allows them to glide, but only for a few minutes at a time. (Unless your Sweeten is a specific breed of the Sweeten known as a Flyer Sweeten, in which they can fully fly, and are extremely rare!)

Sweetens can be found living primarily in hollow trees (though caves and even burrows are not unheard of), where they construct their dens from soft material, usually feathers (sometimes moss is added as well) they found on the ground. They also take a liking to decorating their nests with shiny things they find from the humans--so hang on tightly to your gold bracelets and pearl necklaces!

Notably, Sweetens like to bounce when they are happy; unlike the domestic cat, they also seem to enjoy music and can be heard humming tunes in the form of trills and chirps. Their get their name because, despite being related to cats, they have an outgoing personality more akin to dogs--that is, one that's very playful and, well, sweet! A Sweeten is loyal to the very end, will risk their life to protect their owner in the face of danger, and is a very affectionate creature that loves cuddles, being pet, and playing.

Will a Sweeten manage to capture your heart?
FAQ wrote:Q: Are Sweetens free?
A: Yes! All Sweetens, with the exception of customs/breedings, are
obtainable by free means!

Q: How do I adopt a Sweeten?
A: At random times, litters will be posted on the adoption zone post! Fill out
the form and it will be yours! Also, every once in a while, events are held
where you could potentially win some Sweetens though playing games or
entering raffles, too!

Q: Can I make my own Sweeten/make litters?
A: Sorry, but no. While I cannot and will not claim to own the idea of cats
with wings and of course have no issue with people making a character or
species with those traits, you cannot use the lineart or claim it to be an
official sweeten unless you're an artist. You can, however, purchase a
custom. (See below for more info)

Q: Can I make my Sweeten my fursona/OC?
A: Of course you can, though I'd be careful about fandom-inspired designs
(I don't think Toyhouse allows them, for example.) See below for info
on taking offsite.

Q: Can I put my Sweeten in my signature/take my Sweetens offsite?
A: Absolutely! Just make sure to link back to this thread. If you're
uploading your Sweeten to Toyhouse, let me know your username so I
can request creator credits. (Can't just put down my TH due to CS
rules) and make sure to add this thread as a designer! (for image
credits, credit me for the base and the artist of the litter or custom
for the color)

Q: Can I change my Sweeten's name?
A: Yes, whenever and as much as you'd like! The name on the form
exists to add personalization to it and make it feel like you're
really adopting a Sweeten, and isn't necessarily set in stone!

Q: What gender is my Sweeten?
A: Whatever you want it to be! Gender is not canonical to Sweetens
and it's up to the owner if they want to give their Sweeten a gender.

Q: Who's that Sweeten up there?
A: That's Sophie, our mascot! She's based on my
IRL cat, and was the first Sweeten to ever be discovered!

Q: Can I be on the staff team?
A: That depends on if I'm currently hiring! I'll let you know with a poll
if I am. Do note that not just anybody will be hired though! Especially
with artists, there's some admittedly strict requirements and
experience needed as the way to make Sweetens is a bit advanced,
and positions are not FCFS.

Q: Why did you create Sweetens?
A: Way back when, I was a fanatic for early Chicken Smoothie user-made
adoptables like Cloudy Leopards and Thimble Kitties, and in 2015 I was an
artist for the latter as well as Mini Kits/Fuzzy Felines. It was always my
dream to open my own user-made adoptables thread, but I lacked the
skills to make an appealing lineart back then, so any attempts I had
flopped. But now I'm a seasoned artist, and want to achieve my
childhood dream.

Q: Where did Sweetens get its name?
A: The original name for this species was gonna be
"Wingies" (you can also see this in early posts) but I changed it because
I thought it was too generic. I've always called my cat "my sweeten" or
something similar because she's a very sweet cat, and I thought it was
cute, so I named the species that! That's also why Sophie is the mascot.
She's the original Sweeten! ^^

The Adoption Zone

Postby Tendo64 » Fri Feb 12, 2021 5:26 pm

Image
This is the adoption zone--where you can adopt a Sweeten of your very own!
Sweetens tend to come in litters of 4-8, and sometimes more. That gives you plenty to choose from!
Rules wrote:
1. You can only adopt one Sweeten per litter. This is to ensure everyone can get one.
2. Sweetens are first come, first serve.
3. This is a given, but do not steal someone else's Sweeten. This includes putting it in your signature.
4. You cannot edit your Sweeten's sprite in any way!
5. You can change the Sweeten you want later on, but make sure to post a new form! And if someone claimed the Sweeten you want instead before you, you can't change it to that one, even if you initially adopted before them. (i.e., A claims 4, B then claims 3, A can't change their Sweeten to 3)
6. Please don't remove the codeword, it's necessary to find forms of specific litters!
7. I won't notify you when you've claimed the Sweeten, as I do a final quote post when all are adopted. If your name appears on this page, it's yours!
8. If more than one litter is up, you can still adopt from the second!
9. I recommend checking the forms previous to yours, as I can only update this page so fast. Someone might have claimed the Sweeten you want before you and you might've posted before I got the chance to update it.
10. If you need to edit your adoption form, post separately why you're editing it or put what you edited at the top of the edited form, else it will be disqualified. The reason for this is to prevent people from changing their Sweeten to one that someone took after them. Do not lie about what you edited. (This rule does not apply to general posts)
11. A Sweeten with "<reserved>" next to it is not available and was reserved for the artist of the litter to keep.

Shelter wrote:Any Sweeten that is returned to me or is not adopted from a litter in three days will be placed into the shelter so that a new litter can be posted. It can still be adopted at any time, and you can also adopt a Sweeten from here that came from a litter you already adopted from! But you can still only adopt one every three days.

Sometimes, a shelter Sweeten may be marked as only for those without a Sweeten, and it will say so next to it if this is the case.

The shelter is empty.

Customs and Breedings

Postby Tendo64 » Fri Feb 12, 2021 5:27 pm

Status wrote:
Customs: Closed
Breedings: Closed
Are you interested in getting a special Sweeten? This place is just for you!
These Sweetens, unlike the adoption zone Sweetens, are not for free, and are obtained with items purchased with feathers. This is because they are customized Sweetens made just for the buyer!
Rules wrote:1. You have to choose an artist to design your Sweeten(s). You still can't take the base and make your own! (unless you're an artist, see rule 11)
2. Try to order within reason! No set number on limits, but your form may be declined if you attempt to order, say, three customs all at once from the same artist.
3. You cannot order customs based on copyrighted characters, species (such as Pokemon), products (i.e., a custom based on a beanie baby), and similar, as it's against CS rules to have paid customs based on them (unless you're an artist and you specifically make it for yourself using one of your free custom tickets).
4. You also cannot order customs based on OCs and adopts that do not belong to you. That's considered character theft.
5. You cannot order customs based on CS pets.
6. Please note you cannot request to change the pose of your Sweeten or change their footwings!
7. Please don't order customs meant to resemble event Sweetens while the event is going on (i.e., ordering a bunny Sweeten during the Easter event)
8. Sweetens that are related (from the same litter (including adoption zone Sweetens) or a parent and child Sweeten) CANNOT breed!
9. If you breed a Sweeten wearing any accessories (this does not apply to potions) bought from the shop (that it did not have when adopted), their offspring will not inherit them.
10. A pairing can only be bred together once every six months, twice maximum. (They may breed with other Sweetens, just not each other more than twice)
11. Artists are allowed to make customs and breeding offspring for themselves!
Customs wrote:This is the custom zone, where you can obtain a
completely unique Sweeten designed by YOU!
ImageImage
To get a custom, you need a custom ticket:
ImageImage
Depending on the type of ticket will tell you how
much you can customize your Sweeten!
Blue tickets give you a simple Sweeten with
no line edits. This means you can only choose the
colors and markings, and one of four bases.
Red tickets let you have line edits!
This means you can ask for custom changes
like adding accessories, fluffier fur,
floppy ears, etc.

Chocolate chip potions give you 1-2 Sweetens.

Bans and Strikes

Postby Tendo64 » Fri Feb 12, 2021 5:28 pm

This is to keep track of who has received bans/strikes. The reasoning for any strikes or bans received will not be listed here.
1 Strike: Warning
2 Strikes: Banned for a week
3 Strikes: Banned for a month
4 Strikes: Banned for a year
5 Strikes: Banned permanently

One strike will fade after three months (with the exception of strike 5), but bans won't be lifted until their time runs out.
If what you did is particularly egregious (stealing someone's Sweeten, making a litter without permission, claiming my artwork as your own, etc.) you may be instantly permabanned.
