Polecats are part of the mustelidae family, along with otters, weasels, badgers, and other animals like them.

Percy himself is a common polecat, a subsepecies of the european polecat. Essentially an undomesticated relative of the ferret.

Here’s a fun fact though: Percy and Hugh share a superfamily of musteloidea, and in some places skunks have been called ‘polecats’ as well, even if it’s not exactly accurate.

It’s like they’re super distant relatives!

But not really. They’re actually just pals.
