Yes, that's the Happy New Year 2018 DogCat, which has an interesting story - apparently the system glitched and it became a "special birth" KittyCat instead of the one-per-avatar, non-transferable freebie. So, now it is both!
You might be thinking of the live cats that are "set to image" (I call it flat-catting them) but although they look more box-like, and they take up fewer prims so a shop can display more of them, they aren't boxes and they still need to eat.
I currently have more cats than I need, so I would be glad to help you put together a collection. Since we have to feed them to breed them, most of mine are still sitting in their boxes in the online cattery.

That's the repacker for a KittyCat less than 24 hours old. You don't actually need to put a KittyCat in a box to sell it. A KittyCat can be sold either boxed (New Born Kitten) or live (the price is set from an edit menu) except for the free cats given away by the KC company about three times a year. Those free ones are non-transferable unless they are permapetted. I wish it were possible to pause a cat and keep it from aging! If you put it in your online cattery without food, or leave it in your inventory (it can't eat while it is in inventory), after three days it will hit 100% hunger and it will be "sick," requiring a week's food or a special vitamin to recover. On the brighter side, the sick cats with their little beds and thermometers are actually rather cute, and they never die. They just age out of breeding.
On the flip side of this, when I as a divorce lawyer say that I'm in favor of no-fault divorce, everyone assumes that it is solely because it means more business. It probably would be good for business, and it won't avoid fault-centered child custody trials, but it should reduce some of the stress on "real people" (non-lawyers), too.

Talk about synchronicity - this post lines up exactly with something I've been trying to write about different forms of God's self-restriction, placing tzimtzum and kenotic Christology in opposition to the argument that free will somehow infringes on God's sovereignty (the argument that "God can do anything EXCEPT create something that God does not control"). Thank you so much for posting this!
