tryna work out kona anatomy and colours. bottom left is Classic Jade™ but some of the others might feel better? the anatomy is closer to arboreal slinky things like ringtailed cats and linsangs and margays than housecats or big cats but im not sure what the exact balance is!!
I’ve been seeing a few mini-fics floating around involving Thor and Loki as dogs/cats and… I just wanted to write them as kitties too.
But I was writing for a few hours before this so it’s like…. nothing.
Hit by one of those damn cars the night before, Loki had spent hours
howling out in pain, his hope dwindling as the night moved in to day.
Until a blessed woman pulled over.
She spoke softly, cooing
and making kissy noises at him as she crouched down and carefully
reached out to pet him. Loki liked her voice and the fact that she
wasn’t in those ugly pants or wielding a net like those infernal animal
catchers. He dragged himself closer, yowling pitifully as one of his
hind legs dragged behind him.
She had scooped him up at once,
taking him away from that wretched patch of dirt and gravel - only to
take him somewhere that smelled like death and medicine. He hated her
for that. Well, for the few moments before he was poked with something
and fell in to a very heavy nap.
He woke sometime later with
his mind in a fog and his face buried in fluff. The fluff was purring,
he realized as the fog lifted a bit. The fluff was also licking him.
He shoved himself back, blinking as his vision doubled. Another cat
was stretched out beside him, a big orange thing with blue eyes, pink
tongue hanging from his mouth.
“What do you think you’re
doing? Who are you?” He glanced around the room. It was, well, a room.
He couldn’t remember if he’d been in one before. “Where am I?”
“Home,” the other cat purred, “and you smelled like the vet, so I’d thought I give you a bath.”
looked down at himself, finding that his hurt leg had been put in
something hard and bright green. At least it didn’t hurt so much
“What’s this on my neck?” He asked next, giving his head a shake and feeling something around his throat.
collar!” The other cat chirped. “I have one too,” he added, lifting his
chin so Loki could catch a glimpse of red that parted the thick fur on
“So, what’s your name?” the other cat asked when he brought his chin back down.
“Loki,” he said, suddenly feeling exhausted. “You never told me your name.”
“Oh, I’m Thor,” he said as he sat up. “I always wanted a brother.”
Loki let out a hmmph, letting his head drop down. “Lovely.”
Two baby and one awkward teenage manticore(s)! I never draw them with wings because I hate ruining the lines of slinky cat monsters with bulky old wings. Plus the wings are a late addition to the lore, so if anyone asks, I can pretend that I REALLY REALLY CARE about maintaining Pliny the Elder’s grand vision.
Slinky update: Just went to see him at the hospital and he is still having seizures, just less severe. They are trying to get it so we can take him home soon but it turns out that to drop his meds he is getting for assisting with the high red blood cells and the low sugar it has to be done slowly and the soonest he could come home is likely to be Friday night and will all the medication they have given him the cost to take him home Friday (tomorrow) night is now close to $5,000. 😰
I will draw anyone anything for any cost.
I have no idea how else to come up with enough to bring him home safely.
