The Lebeau Clan’s Four-Legged Family Members
Oliver a.k.a. THE ASSHOLE
There’s no way around it, Oliver’s a fucking awful cat. He’s learned to put up with Rogue and the children, but he’ll only ever truly love Remy. He issued a silent protest when Anna moved in by peeing on every surface of the apartment. Rogue, in retaliation, kept scaring him with a cucumber as soon as she confirmed he’s one of the cats that hate them. He has rare moments when he’ll play nice, most of the time, though, he’s ornery and unpleasant as hell, and Rogue can’t help but think that that’d be exactly how she’d be if she were a cat. In Oliver’s universe, He is at the very center of it, Remy as a distant second, and miles away, Rogue and their young, which to his credit is still light years closer than everyone else.
Lucifer a.k.a THE MORON
Lucifer’s exhausting. He is an unbearably sweet cat, when he’s not fucking shit up, especially next to the gray demon spawn, but he breaks everything he touches, and 93% of the time he’ll just look at you in the wake of his disaster with a face that just lets you know he’s truly stupid. He spazzy and playful, and everyone reluctantly adores him.
Figaro a.k.a THE ATTENTION WHORE
Figaro is an uber chill cat. He sleeps like twenty hours a day. He’s not particularly affectionate or ill-mannered. He likes to feel important though, and he’s super convenient with his affections. It goes something like this: Food? purr Attention? On someone that’s not me? PURR
If you try to ignore him in an effort to ‘teach him’ a ‘lesson’ he’ll throw up in your shoes.
AND A FEW YEARS LATER COMES:
Thibodeaux: The deaf Pitbull
Never mind the fact that she’s a female pitbull, Thibodeaux’s name stems from the occasion, many years before, when Rogue was told by Gambit that while he’d never want the “white picket fence or a dog named Thibodeaux”, he did want a future with her.
Remy finds it hilarious that he’d essentially ended up getting it. Or at least, as close a version of it a man like him would ever get. Rogue wanted to call her Daisy, but Gambit insisted.
They got her because Oli really, really wanted a puppy, and Anna had always been more of a dog person. The minute they saw her at the pound and learned about her background, well, Rogue related to the sweet pup, and that was that.
Tibby is a shy rescue dog. She was intended to become a fight dog, but she was really bad at it. She’s got scars all over her muzzel to prove it. She was also born deaf. She’s timid and sweet. The cats were wary of her at first, but she had no problem submitting to the little shits, so they allowed her to stay. She cries during storms, is terrified of balloons, and weirdly enough pineapples.
