This is Pooka, The cat of the main character of my current comic. Pooka is great for a mascot because it is probbly thre most unmagical pet for character, but is also based apon the fey creatures called the pooka who are creatures of the night and are always up to creating mischeif, and sometimes they have a habbit of befriendsing little childeren for life, guarding them from the real terrors of the outside world, of things scaryier than they are. they are sometimes refered to as bogey man, but in some folklaw they are a sign of propacy and good fortune. Pooka is a sign of good fortune and mischeif (like most cats) but is also like a guardian to the soul of the main character, a small but innocent representation of a childhood lost and of the characters decessed mother.
Pooka is a very small grey spooted cat that has no specific gender and it always refered to as an "it" rather than a pronoun, as refereing to it as such brings up alot5 more unanswered questions about the creature, it' origians and why it has chosen it's owner.
