About LF

Running a petz site was a very old dream of mine. Before Litterz Factory, I had a site called Arie's Catz Site (ACS) which never really got anywhere past my own desktop. Nevertheless, I loved putting it together. Years later, in late 2005, I reinstalled Petz on my computer, and the wish to run a petz site returned. And thus, in late March 2006, Litterz Factory came to be! Originally, it was a Petz 5-only site hosted on Freewebs, but in 2007 it got hosted on a private domain and finally changed to Petz 3+. In 2016, to celebrate its 10th anniversary, LF even moved to its own domain!

Content-wise, I focus on bred adoptions of different breeds; I want to be able to offer everybody something to their liking. However, I think sites that offer nothing but adoptions are a tad boring. A visit doesn't last for more than five, maybe ten minutes. That's why I try my best to offer a lot of interactive content. Somebody once described Litterz Factory as "petzy and traditional" - and that's exactly what I want it to be like!

If there's anything you'd like to learn about, just let me know and I might write a little bit about it.

Past layouts

Below are clickable thumbnails of most of LF's past layouts. Hover your mouse over them for a brief description.

Version 1: Fifi. It was very simple, boring even, but hey - I was too busy getting the coding right to spend much time on a pretty look. Version 2: Scribbles. This took me forever to code (you can laugh at me now). There was a different picture under the menu on every page! Version 3: Francien. Isn't it cute? The drawing of the cat is by Francien van Westering. Version 5: Marv. A simple, petzy layout that stuck around for a long time. Version 6: Lace. I was never sure wether I liked this layout much, but it did its job. Version 7: Maroon. Nice and simple. Version 8: Blue Cream. Loved the colour scheme and background. Version 9: Houndstooth. With rotating images in the bottom right (other options shown below the screenshot). I was sad to see this one go! Version 10: Fifth Birthday. Made this to celebrate the fact that LF had been around for five whole years. Version 11: Luvz. A lovey dovey layout that stuck around for a long time. Version 12: Here is the News. I really liked this layout, probably my favourite ever. I only changed it because I felt like it had been much, much too long, haha. Version 13: Sunny Paisley.

Below are miscellaneous other layouts from my hand.

I made this for Malyssa's crew site, called Slobber. A reconstruction (I still had the images, but no coded page) of my past crew site TNCS. The past layout of my crew site, Schat. I loved it, but it was a pain to browse.

Other things

I'm not sure where to put these, but they're still worth a look.

A very fun Petz Meme from PixiMyst. My real-life petz stuff, minus Catz I and Dogz I. The plushie is called Jasper. I placed 3rd in a breeding contest with a kitty named Fiddle, who has been MPA'd since.
