About: Adds a cute kitten on the congrats screen after a deck is finished. *Few sample images are provided. Feel free to add your own. Update Note: This addon was originally written for 2.0. On 2.1, addon updates delete custom files first and this addon was written before the user_files folder was put in place. So if you have any custom images added in the kittens folder, make sure to back them up now. The next update will make use of the user_files folder for images. Screenshots: Changes: v0.0.2 - 11/10/2018: added support for other media types. License: This addon is a labor of love and licensed under the GPL. If you find it useful, consider paying something forward by supporting some charitable endeavors. Suggestions: https://iccf-holland.org/ https://www.vim.org/sponsor/index.php Derivative works or forks published with no added values should also include the above statement.


As add-ons are programs downloaded from the internet, they are potentially malicious. You should only download add-ons you trust.

It's a great add-on, but unfortunately the Github fix doesn't seem to be working on 2.1.42 🥲
Comment from author
This 2.0 addon is too old and requires a complete rewrite for security reasons. I'm afraid things will keep changing, so there's no reason to support 2.1 at this time.

The add-on itself doesn't work, but a fix is posted here: https://github.com/dannyreilman/KittenRewards/blob/master/src21/kittenRewards.py

Just download the Kitten Rewards Add-on through THIS Ankiweb Add-on page that you are on right now, then go to Tools > Add-ons > Select Kitten Rewards Gamification > Click View Files -> Open kittenRewards.py -> erase everything there and paste the code from the link above ^

Not sure why the author of the add-on just post fix that himself, but he sent me that link when I told him I was having issues with KR
Comment from author
As stated, there are security issues involved. But I am not against others using this version, I just don't want to be responsible for any issues that may result.

The idea is excellent! Congratulations! I like to gamify my studies.
But, unfortunately, the addon does not work! Could you please resolve it?

New Edit: Please fix :( it doesn't work with the new Anki 2.1.35 and this was my favorite addon. Switched to downvote only to get the author's attention to fix. I wish I could fix but I don't know how...

Who doesn't love adorable cats every time we finish a deck? This is an adorable and well made add on. Thanks for brightening my study :)

Edit: Your add on has made me smile every time I study :D

It is what it is...

Wish it worked for 2.1 :(
on 1593562441
It's an interesting add on, thanks!
on 1591515975
Simple but reliable and fun. Other commenters have complained about the pictures not being interspersed throughout the deck but I would find that distracting--the single picture after you finish the deck is great. My one complaint is that the pictures are not obviously sourced--proper attribution is important!
Comment from author
I agree, so feel free to source it for me.

Love this
on 1588203852
you can add gifs too people!
I have a set of sponge bob gifs that insult me every time I finish a deck, it's wonderful!
on 1588016469
very cool

For those wondering, yes you can have both kittens and the puppy reinforcement add on at the same time

This is great thank you!
on 1583102687
Great add on! I love the cute little motivation it provides :) Don't know if its possible but perhaps to make it easier and provide more novel picture you could implement https://thesecatsdonotexist.com/ , it provides AI generated images of cats so we can have an endless amount of new pics :D
Comment from author
Anything is possible, just a matter of time and dollar.

https://thesecatsdonotexist.com looks like an interesting site, but I don't think they like anki users abusing their service. Going by their instructions, setting up a separate notebook/server would cost about $2 per hour, so such a project is not feasible given the few users.

Works perfectly! Replace with pics of quokkas and babyyodas. Go to Tools> Add ons>View Files and then fill the folder with your jpgs.

AMAZING!!! Brings joy and giggles to my heart and brain after every review! Thank you SO MUCH for your time and investment in this!

I would love to have a feature to make them display a little smaller if they are in portrait mode (I included some new pictures, but then the portrait ones are getting displayed way too large). Love the addon! <3

Addon is insanely effective!

more people will use this addon, if add a name 'cute dog new version'

muito bom!
on 1542690367
Cool, but why not do it like the old puppy reinforcement, and get reinforced after a few cards? I have 1000 reviews/day, it will take me a lot of time to see the kittens x)
Comment from author
Update: Please try Anki Fanfare which has the features you want with audio and visual feedback. https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/2073603704

It's amazing!

very nice. I actually prefer this over puppy reinforcement because I see pictures less often and (by default) bigger.

it doesn't work for me in 2.0. I even deleted all other add-ons to rule out interference from other add-ons. But this is not really important since I mostly switched to 2.1.

I would change the filter so that more than jpg files are included. I mean instead of <code>if i.endswith(".jpg")]</code> to something like <code>os.path.splitext(i)[1].lower() in [".jpg",'.jpeg','.png','.gif']</code>. (I haven't tested gifs on all plattforms.)

maybe change the description? You already have a variable RES_DIR. The user could create additional directories so that it becomes a universal "Image Rewards with kittens etc." add-on. Actually I use family photos. Maybe a puppy mode (just the images from puppy reinforcement) or an xkcd-mode (isn't xkcd under a free license?)? The high number of positive reviews for puppy reinforcement demonstrates that there is a "need" for such an add-on and currently the substitute is not available for 2.1 and who knows when glutanimate will find time for this between his 50+ other add-ons ...
Comment from author
thx. Added support for other media formats. On 2.1 you could copy the script folder, one for each subject, and use the addon manager to toggle them on/off.

something I didn't know I needed until now
