Before you read on, here's the answer to the #1 most frequently asked question - When do you update?
Currently, the major updates happen once to twice a year, which isn't too bad considering CDD is now over 10 yrs, old. This schedule can vary, however, depending on how many contributions we get and how much time I have to recruit or gather material. If you are interested in  submitting creative material to Unofficial CDD, check HERE.
If you just can't get enough of CDD art or want to be involved with CDD fandom, please consider joining the catsdontdance_II yahoogroup.  Group members get first notice of site updates, plus it's a great way to help out with the projects we do for the Unofficial CDD Fan-site. Okay, back to the program...
SITE  NAVIGATION TIP: clinking the left side menus changes the HEADER frame where there's more submenus.

So What's New THIS time??

Time for an update! There's been some changes here and there which I hope will make your visit to Unofficial CDD more pleasant. These changes are mostly code related, and tested well in the top 3 browsers, but if there's any problems please let me know at:   On to what's new...

Fan Art: Welcome to a lot of new artists from the halls of Deviant Art. If you like what you see, please visit their galleries, and see what else they draw besides singing and dancing animals. To make room for the newcomers, I've pared down the fan art page, but no worries, the art isn't gone..just moved to the Holiday and Fan Art Archives. <:)

Fan Fiction: Three new authors this time around, thanks Daisy E, Alycat and Reggie. A welcome back to Eric whose tale of two kitties concludes and to Nothere89 who has another short and sweet offering too.

Fun Stuff: In the printable downloads area, there's a new pumpkin stencil of Tillie. Just in time for next year.. <:)

Production Art: There's some more clean up art gleaned from a new influx of Kitty Letters and a CDD care package. In the same vein, -more mischief from the Kitty Letters in the theme of Halloween. :)

Media: In the CDD promotional items list, there's 3 pics of CDD promotional pieces that are quite interesting... I'd also like to pass along a tidbit a CDD shared with me for the CDD International sectin. On the Japanese CDD video cover the title is written in katakana - an alphabet to make the phonetic of the title 'Kyattsu-Donto-Dansu'. Finally, I stumbled upon a video of Randy Newman performing 'Laugh and be Happy' in which he also has a few words about CDD as well.

Comics: I added a one pager I did during Obamas election night, 'Time Would Tell'.

Cat Chat: Last, but certainly not least, a Cat Chat with CDD cleanup artist, Todd Jacobsen! A lot of interesting CDD tidbits and Todds excellent examples of the 'art' of cleanup. :)

That's it for now, but I hope to have a small update in December too. *crosses fingers*

10/08/08 Apologies for the very long hiatus, but here's what's been updated.

Fan Art: Welcome to new artists Osprey Hawk, Selina Patience, Kateartist and to returning artists PandaJenn, and Bloodyd-Chan. Nice work guys. :)

Fan Fiction: Three new authors this time around, thanks Eric, Ssellur, and Nothere89.

Fan Fun: There's a new Sawyer Wallpaper available, inspired by real life icon, Madonna.

Production Art: More model sheets of supporting animal cast, plus 3 for Sawyer and one for Tillie. There's also some nice new art iin the Sketch & Cleanups section featuring  Darla, Max and misc. human characters too. I recently got a whole new set of 'Kitty Letters' which has all sorts of 'creative' art from the CDD crew which I'm happy to be share.

Cat Chat: The interview with Annie Award nominated supervising animator of Darla & Max, Frans Vischer is here! A very nice read about a very nice fellow.

Things to come: There's still a thing or two that will be added at mid month, so do check back. One will be a printable pumpkin design featuring Pudge. I'm also working on a fan art piece and am happy to post more from other artists too. If they can be sent in by around Oct. 15th.. <:) Finally, I still think the CDD Catalog parody project has great potential and should be online this year. To those who've already contributed, many thanks! To those who think they missed, no, no you haven't ! Just visit the project page and see what needs doing or better yet, work up something new.

In closing, thanks for your patience and I'll try to get this show on the road again.

Many thanks to all the talented artists and writers who helped make it possible. :) The first Candid Captions page for Jan/Feb. 06 is up and don't forget to check out the NEW Candid Captions pic for Mar/April 2006.
