We'd like to welcome you to the all-new COOL CATS! This is our first redesign in several years, and there are many reasons for the delay, but we finally found some time to modernize the look and performance of the site.
The largest change is the new responsive design for flawless performance on mobile devices. This is a huge step forward for us because it necessitated redoing virtually every photo on this site. You read that correctly: every. Single. Photo. It was not fun but the end result speaks for itself. COOL CATS will now be more easily viewed on your smartphone no matter where you are.
Also, we wanted a blog-style feel to the site so more room has been given to text, more so than any other time in the past. The font is more legible and modern, and thanks to newer standards, the old late-1980s bold font used in Mercury ads has been incorporated throughout the site. We've even added a resizable text option on the upper righthand corner of every page, so that you can view the text at your own comfort level. We hope that you find the site more enjoyable to read now.
New information has also been added, of course, and a lot of older information is updated, corrected, and current. A few previous sections are moved, and a couple have been removed completely, but most of the pages and sections that you've used over the past years remain where they are, only with better functionality. And we've added lots of new, snazzy photos to better illustrate points in the articles (we'll continue to work on those in the future, as time and circumstances permit).
We'd like to give an extra-special thanks to Alex for helping with some of the technical upgrades. Without his help, this site revamp couldn't have gone as smoothly as it did.
Finally, if you have any suggestions for articles or can help expand upon an existing page or section, let us know! We'd like to thank you for being a loyal COOL CATS visitor, because without you the site is meaningless. From the bottoms of our hearts, we hope you enjoy the experience and welcome your feedback.
P.S. To answer what you're probably thinking, no...we're still not officially on social media. We honestly don't see the point in joining them because, frankly, there are already quite a few other resources out there that can better help you (see the Discuss list below). Besides, we feel that it would be a little self-serving and just isn't our style. Perhaps sometime in the future we'll make an official account somewhere, but for now we believe that the links below will be of greater use to you.
