March Update

Hi Kickstarter,

Quick update - our manufacturer is populating the printed circuit boards this week. All of the plastic parts are manufactured and will be painted by the end of next week and all of the component parts (Wi-Fi modules, servo motors, lasers, cameras etc.) are either at our factory or will be shipped there next week.

This still puts us on track to complete the assembly process and ship the container from our factory in China to our fulfillment house in the U.S. by the end of April.

As always, we will keep you updated on our progress.

Cheers,

Team Kittyo

      @Andrew Myers - we are on track to ship the container of Kittyos from our factory in China to our fulfillment house in the U.S. by the end of April. From there they will be sent to all of our backers. Thanks for your patience.

      @ Dino Ignacio - we will send out a survey next month where you can update your address in Kickstarter's system. In the meantime, feel free to email it to us at info@kittyo.com.

      Any news on oversea backer I'm based in UK and must admit now that this is dragging out

      Hey Lee,
      I don't know if you guys have my address I moved since this campaign started.
      We moved from SF to Seattle last September.
      Is there a survey to update our address?

      @ Lisa Bailey @ Debra Pokrywka - As we’ve already spent the Kickstarter money (and more) on development costs we're not offering refunds. As stated above we're weeks away from shipping and thank you for your patience.

      @ carol waronek - You can send us your updated mailing address at info@kittyo.com. Once our first batch ships from our factory we will send out a survey where all the backers can update their address within Kickstarter's database.

      I would like a refund. Maybe you're not *mandated* to provide refunds, but at this point I think it is the right thing to do.

      Considering that about a month before shipping to the backers they normally send out a link to update shipping addresses, and the fact I don't see that link, I'd say beginning shipping to us at around the end of April isn't even on the table. Heck, I've moved twice while waiting for this. With in information provided I'd assume best case they'd send the link out at the beginning of May and ship the beginning for June. The fact they're not saying that is a strong indicator that that's probably optimistic. Considering the track record I'd say add two months to that. At this point we should have a projected ship date and we should be being updated the instant when that date shifts. Every other Kickstarter I've done has worked that way. The fact that's not happening has me wondering if it will ship at all.

      You're killing me smalls. Chinese new year, expectations missed more than 5 times. Every month we are very close. How much closer is this to getting in my hands???

      This has been very disappointing. Since tying my money up with you, other products have gone to market that do the exact same things. Seriously, how about a refund so I can buy one of those and play with my kitties next week? Please respond.
