Using Search Filters
There are a lot of Kitties out there – well over a million with thousands more born every day. So how are you supposed to find the specific Kitty you’re looking for?
With search filters, of course. Many players don’t know that the CryptoKitties search function has powerful filters to help them find their dream Kitty. This article will explain some of those search filters and how to use them.
General note: Most search filters can be used with a prefixed minus sign ‘-’ to exclude matches from your search results. All the filters in this guide can be combined to help you find your purrfect kitty.
How much is that Kitty in the window? If you only want to see Kitties that are for sale, use the checkbox below the search bar to limit your search. Same goes for Kitties that are up for Sire, or Kitties that aren’t listed at all. If you want to view all the Kitties, just check all the boxes.
Each frisky feline has Cattributes that describe its features (like eyes, fur, colors, etc.). You can type the names of Cattributes into the search bar (separated by a space) to see only the cats with those Cattributes. For example, if you want a cloudwhite cat with googly eyes, type
cloudwhite googlyinto the search bar.
(To see a list of all the Cattributes to choose from, click on “View all searchable tags” from the search bar.)
You can also specify which Cattributes you want excluded from the search by using this secret trick. Type in
-cattribute:and then list the Cattributes you want excluded, separated by a comma, but no spaces. For example,
gensearches for specific generations, like
gen:3, ranges of generations like
gen:1-3, or, by separating generations with a comma, you can search for a selection of specific generations. Entering
gen:100,1000, for example, would find you Kitties only of Gen 100 and Gen 1000. You can also exclude any of the matches from your results using the minus ‘-’ prefix, like
idAllows you to find specific kitty IDs like
id:1, ranges like
id:1-100, or, by separating the ID numbers with a comma, you can search a selection of specific ID numbers. Entering
id:1,500000,1000000, for instance, would find you the three specific Kitties with those ID numbers. You can also exclude ID numbers by using the ‘-’ key, like
Fancy: As you may have noticed by searching for Fancy Cats via your Special Cat Codex, this filter is used to find Fancy Cats. You can use it to find specific Fancies, like
fancy:Earnie, multiple Fancies by separating them with commas like
fancy:Lulu,Atlasor to exclude certain fancies from your results by searching for something like
Mewtation: You can find any type of Mewtation with these filters:
Unfortunately, adding a Cattribute to these filters doesn’t find the Mewtations of that specific Cattribute.
