  A common pet in the kingdom of arsavela, these long, slinky felines are known trouble-makers with bounding personality. Though they are always seeming to be out for mischief, they are exceptional mousers and are known as well to keep pests at bay, making their mischief worth the management and headache. Oh, and they're also extremely lovable, which certainly helps.   The domesticated variety of these creatures have been kept in Savelan homes for hundreds of years, with numerous breeds popping up in that timeframe. Some with longer or shorter tails are preferred for different tasks, as longer tails are often seen as a symbol of elegance and status, while shorter tails tend to be more practical for those which are kept to hunt in barns. Though the longer tails tend to have practical applications for wild varieties, selective breeding has made these tails more of a burden than an asset.   Likewise, these creatures are sometimes bred to have shorter legs and snouts, both of which are seen as frivolous and sometimes harmful traits, though these have not been proven to cause any issues with physical health the way it might in canines. The physiology of these creatures seems to allow for the squishing with minimal, if any, detriment.   It is uncommon to keep these pets as fully indoor animals, as they will get incredibly restless if left indoors with nothing to hunt or without others to socialize with, though they will seldom turn down a warm hearth in the winter or a cuddle after a long day out. Many argue that these creatures were never fully domesticated, judging by their temperament. Despite this, they can become deeply affectionate companions, so long as one remembers to give them space when they demand it. Though they are loving and loyal creatures, they are still rather large felines with highly efficient teeth and claws.

Extremely lovable and big teeth you say! Sounds like some dangerous cuddles, but cute all the same!

When have humans ever let a couple sharp points stop them from giving a cute beast a snuggle? Probably never. :D

I am very curious to know...on the scale of, say, Kitten to...Tiger....   How boop-able are their widdle noses? And how smush their beans? Finally...how tickly are their whiskers?

Given that even tigers have incredibly boopable noses, I find it hard to place them on the scale! :D Think of the largest cat you know, then add a little more to that, and you'll have the average brushcat!   11/10, very boopable, very squishable.
