What is Careless Cats?
Careless Cats includes 1,111 unique hand-drawn cats with various toys, types, clothing, and hats. I, the founder of this project, am an independent artist. I make stickers, prints, and cards from my drawings. One of my favorite animals to draw is cats. I have a cat named Dot, and many of my drawings are inspired by her goofy and careless actions.
While a DAO certainly interests us, it is not in our immediate plan to create one. We do not believe it is a pre-requisite for every successful project, but something that develops organically. We will still implement a secure form of verification for our holders in the discord with Grape Protocol after sell out

Keep up with our launch updates
We are so excited to share our roadmap with you all. It includes community engaging events, rewards for holders, and professional spaces. A careless cat brings much more utility than one might initially expect.
We will then apply for marketplaces, decided upon by the holders i.e. Magic Eden, Alpha Art, DE, Solanart, etc...
We will donate 10% of sales to @bestfriends, the largest no-kill sanctuary in America. With our donation and future collaborations we are determined to aid in ending the killing of dogs and cats in shelters by 2025.
“Virtually” Adopt 9 Cats through the PuRR Project. We hope this will be an innovative way to keep our community engaged with our real world impact. We will vote on which cats to virtually adopt and be updated, periodically, with photos of our "adopted" feline.
We will also be directing monthly drawing sessions for holders to participate and observe the process in which Careless Cats were designed. Such sessions will also include fun events such as derivative contests and prizes that do not judge your art only based by its aesthetics. We want this space to be inviting to all our holders, not just those that may be more artistically-inclined.
Lastly, we do have airdrops planned for our holders. Specifically, in the works are cat playgrounds and litterboxes that will accompany your Cat and include a function that integrates such pieces to serve as a Twitter banner
Frequently Asked Questions
What Solana wallets can I use?
We will be using Phantom, Sollet and Solflare wallets for the website connection
Who are you?
Our team consists of two artists. We met while we were in college and have opened up independent art shops since. We have been involved in the NFT space for some time and wanted to create a community for artists with our cats as the foundation.
When and where is the launch?
Monday November 15th at 9PM UTC, right here @carelesscats.co
What marketplace will they be listed on?
Will be determined by holders. We will apply for marketplaces as soon as we sell out our public mint.
Is this project donating to a specific charity?
What is an NFT?
Non-Fungible Tokens are unique, easily verifiable digital assets that can represent items such as GIFs, images, videos, music albums, and more. Anything that exists online can be purchased as an NFT, theoretically.
NFTs are different from cryptocurrencies because they’re not interchangeable. Think of Pokémon cards: You can trade them, but a Gastly is not the same as a holographic Charizard. But a bitcoin is indistinguishable from another bitcoin.
Why would I want to own an NFT? Can I make money on it?
One reason to buy an NFT is for its emotional value, which isn’t so different from physical objects...unless you’re a total utilitarian. No one buys lip gloss because they need it. They buy it for the way it makes them feel. The same can be true for a GIF, image, video, or other digital asset.
The other reason is because you think it’s valuable...and will only increase in value. And yes, you can make money off of an NFT by buying and reselling it for more.
How do you know your NFT is authentic?
NFT ownership is recorded on the blockchain, and that entry acts as a digital pink slip. Our NFTs will be encoded using Metaplex's smart contract on the Solana Blockchain.
Which wallets will I be able to use to mint an NFT?
We offer a number of wallet connections for minting, but Phantom is the recommended wallet.
How can you ensure distribution of mints is random?
We will be using a smart contract deployed on the Solana chain to distribute the Careless Cats. The tokens can be verified on the blockchain and our smart contract code can be audited by the Solana core devs.
