Software Santa's personal note: Maukie was my favorite ShockWave Flash Animated Kitty Cat!

(To see which version you have, of the Flash browser plugin, or to Install the latest versions: )

There are standalone programs to play Flash files ...
For Windows get Swiff Player:,1203.0.html
For Mac get iSwiff:,187.0.html

For the longest time "Maukie" was a file hosted by a popular web site. My personal Thanks to Anneke of the Netherlands: for finding Maukie and hosting her for SO LONG! 

Maukie was so Popular that Everybody (Including Santa .... sorry about that) linked directly to her .... causing an Extreme server load for the hosting site .  So, she was removed from Cyberspace ...

But she's available once again! A restaurant in Rochester, NH - The Remember When Diner - has made Available instructions for DOWNLOADING Maukie to your Computer!

About Maukie

Maukie is back in cyberspace! It was down because of too much traffic. That means too many people linking to Maukie. If this doesn't change, I'm afraid I'll have to take the Maukie pages down for all time. Please read the note below.    Thank you!    Anneke

There are a lot of questions about Maukie.  Some of the answers are here.
First we need to tell you that  WE DID NOT CREATE MAUKIE!   We don't know who did!

Q: Can I use Maukie on my own website?
A: Yes you can, we did too! But remember you can't ask anyone for permission, because it's unknown who the creator of Maukie is. So if one day the owner walks in, and claims the copyright on the cat, it's possible you'll have to take it down.

Q: Why can my friend see Maukie on her computer, and I can't? We both use PC's with Internet Explorer.
A: It's very likely that your friend installed the Macromedia Flash Player on her computer and you haven't. You can download  Macromedia Flash Player  here for free.

Q: I have installed the Macromedia Flash player, but I still can't see Maukie. I am using a Mac and/or a browser different from Internet Explorer.
A: This is because the file is being served as text/plain, when it should be served as application/x-shockwave-flash. (We didn't know this at first; Thanks to the kind people who informed us of this.) However, we can't personally change the settings of our site so that SWF files are automatically recognized as ShockwaveFlash. The only thing we can do is put the flash file on a webpage, and have this webpage tell your computer that it is a Flash file. So try viewing the  Maukie desktop pages  instead of the actual maukie.swf file, and see if that helps.

Q: I am so fond of Maukie. Do you have any more art like Maukie?
A: We are sorry to say, but no we haven't. Of course you can  Search Google  for more Flash Artwork.

Q: What does Maukie's name tag say?
A: Here is an enlargement of the tag.

There used to be a website with this name (
 (Some think Wotch may have been the creator(s) of Maukie.)

Q: Who is Anneke?
A: Anneke is a very talented artist with a website who happened to find Maukie and put her on the website. Maukie became so popular that Anneke made several pages of information to help people all over the world with their questions about Maukie. We are extremely grateful to Anneke for all of her hard work and research! She has given Maukie a good home. Here is a link that will tell you more about Anneke.
