Hey @sixpenceee I though you might find this interesting… A few years ago my husband brought home a stray kitten with only half a tale, he thought her grandfather had been a bobtale cat but others said she must’ve gotten it chopped off somehow because of the way her tale crooks at the end (that’s her in the last pic). Recently she had kittens of her own and she does have bobtale genes! She had 6 kittens altogether: 2 with full, long tales; 2 with half-tales; and 2 with no tales
so i saw this pic of mace hiding a kitten in his robes and thought, the world needs more mace-secret-animal-lover or not so secret as the case may be. everyone always blames qui-gon for strays but what if its not his fault, at least this time
“And that’s why we decided t-”
The soft mewing sound had the entire Council chamber silenced in
seconds and everyone looked to Qui-Gon as the man stood there and
They could be forgiven for believing the sound had come from the tall
master’s robe, considering the mans rather infamous inclination to
picking up pathetic lifeforms everywhere he went and Obi-Wan inwardly
sighed as he wondered what kind of feline his master had picked up
this time and how much of their quarters it might shred before it was
Only, Qui-Gon looked as puzzled as the rest of them, blinking at them
and then looked at Obi-Wan.
‘Its not him. He doesn’t have the feline.’ The young padawan
suddenly realized as he felt the confusion and slight humor through
But that would mean…
Obi-Wan looked around at the council members who were also starting
to look at each other, catching onto the same thought process as
“…Master Windu, did your robes just mew at us?” Qui-Gon
offered, a grin threatening to break out over his face.
“They did no such thing I can assure you Master Jinn.” The Korun
Obi-Wan’s jaw was threatening to drop.
Mace Windu was the culprit?!
“No, no I’m pretty sure your robes just mewed at us Master
“It did no such thi-”
This time the soft sound was accompanied by a tiny furry head
sticking its way out of Mace tunic, the soft little creature’s eyes
wide as it peered around, ears twitching before it crawled out of the
Korun’s tunic. Mace quickly moved his hands to catch it and cup it
carefully to him, stroking between the ears with care.
“…That is to say…my robes did not mew.” He acknowledge
“You got a kitten, in your robe, in the council chambers, at a
meeting.” Qui-Gon sounded thrilled and Obi-Wan’s jaw was hanging
Several council members looked shocked while others were covering
“…He was cold and his mother was no where in sight.” Mace
huffed as the little shape in his hands started to purr like a motor
as it was petted. “I wasn’t about to leave it to die.”
Was Mace Windu blushing!?
“And you all complain about me!” Qui-Gon guffawed and Mace
grumbled loudly before giving the furry little creature a soft smile
and poking it on its pink nose.
‘…That’s kind of cute…’ Obi-Wan grinned to himself.
“Tiny creatures do not belong in the council chambers.” Yoda
snorted before cackling. “Cute it is though.”
Mace grumbled and carefully hid the kitten in the folds of his tunic
again, giving it soft pets until it was asleep again.
The meeting resumed as normal after that though Qui-Gon couldn’t
keep the grin of his face.
Obi-Wan had a feeling he was doing it on purpose to rile Master Windu
