I'm not sure when he opened for me - I know it was either right after I entered the book or right before - because Sherlock was worried that Faustus (a stray who wandered into the library and who Lucy adopted) might have damaged the story and entered the book to make sure. lol

There is a bell to the right of your energy bar - click that - and you might get this? I just noticed it...

I guess I don't feed him enough! lol Since I have like 25 or more of these and just now noticed them....

I don't have a bell to the right of my energy bar.  There is an envelope to the right and the options cog to the left.  Do you think it has something to do with Facebook?  Like a special reward?  I never saw any of that, like something saying the cat was hungry.  And I can't figure out where he is.  LOL  Bummer

In reply toRe: msg 188

I just noticed how the library expanded.  Never paid attention before.  None of the new books have names yet thoough.

I noticed last night that the library had expanded but thought I hadn't moved the mouse over enough before.

I haven't got the white cat but maybe I am not at a high enough level for him yet.

Only managing between 3 to 5 HOS per game at present.  Life has revved up for me at present and doesn't look like slowing down for a while yet.

Facebook? I don't know... I didn't do anything connected with that.

Did you open all the HOSes in Alladin and Around the World in 80 days? (The main quests with Sherlock has us skip Around the World and go right on to Wizard of Oz...) Maybe you have to open all the books and the HOSes that come before Beauty and the Beast before Faustus the cat comes on board...

But I would also check to see if you need to update your game, since you downloaded it and don't play straight from the site. That might be the problem... (just guessing here)...

Since I'm only at level 38 and you are ahead of me, I don't think it has to do with leveling up...

Trixie Belle - I don't think it has to do with leveling up, because I'm at a lower level than whitebutterfly54.

And those books weren't there before - I was playing when they did the new content update, but I also remember trying to scroll past the stairs and never getting past Edgar Allen Poe's book of stories....

Well, this cat thing just mystifies me ---- no cat. I have all scenes open, playing directly from their site. Faustus is listed in the diary, but I sure don't see him. I'm level 49.

Going back in now and have a look.

So I looked around and see no cat or cat bed. I have completed Holmes Story, Alice's Adventures, Wizard of Oz, and Around the World, and now at 23% in Aladdin. I have completed several collections from the Treasure Island scenes, also ---- but that story follows Aladdin and Beauty both.

So I played a few scenes in Beauty until I ran out of energy ---- completed one collection and a bit of another ---- no cat.

Have you finished Beauty, or how far are you?

And, there is something called Missing Brothers Case in the diary between Aladdin and Beauty ---- no idea what that is.

And, I unlocked a scene called Parisian Slums in the EA Poe book ---- scenes there start at 79 energy units and Room overlooking the City is 88 ---- so those will be waiting a very long time.

Anyway, I see Faustus on page 65 of the diary (of 82 pages open, the last entry being Belle) so I don't know where that got picked up. Maybe when I played a few scenes when I opened them a while back?

I wonder if I can download the game if I am playing from their site and have 2 games? It would be interesting to play knowing what to do in the beginning.

To be honest, I have no idea where I was.

I finished the first investigation- the Hounds of the Baskervilles. Then dabbled a bit here and there (as I do every day) with Watson's murder mystery about the jockey from that same book.

Then I went into Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - but I didn't finish that investigation, though I worked on it every day - before I opened Wizard of Oz. Same with that one, didn't finish, and went on to Around the World in 80 days - played maybe a third before I opened Alladin -

Each time a book shelf opened, and a scene, and I had the money to open it, I did.

So I have been playing a little from all of them every day - timing myself in the game by doing x number of shelves a day - to get the tokens to open the event HOS - until recently I realized, after finishing Alice's Adventures in Wonderland investigation and reading the dialogue that came up between Sherlock and Watson - that for the main game progress, I was supposed to follow Sherlock (Watson's investigations are the side stories, which is why both Sherlock Holmes shelves and Alice's adventures in Wonderland shelves were still open - though Sherlock wasn't the one to do those cases. They aren't part of the main story, and Watson's is a different murder investigation altogether)

Yeah, it took me that long to catch on. lol

To follow the main story progress, I was supposed to skip Around the World and go to Wizard of Oz (but I had already done a bit from all three of AtW) but I did that and have had BatB open for awhile, having played Belle's cottage enough to level up twice, the Castle scene once, and the winter garden once as well.

So maybe by my dabbling around here and there - and only recently picking up the investigation like I should - by following each Sherlock quest, in order, and sticking to it - maybe that had something to do with me getting the cat before you guys?

I have no idea... it is a mystery to me.

I've had him for a few weeks now. And it was around the time I opened Beauty and the Beast, which is why I thought it might have something to do with that....

I'm sure you'll get him before too long! :)
