Cat OC Design by Aquiavel
Cat OC Design
For Lew-LapinGris's contest^^

Meet Amynne, the Seal Point/Tabby cross 
Amynne is oldest daughter in a litter of four. Her mother, Amii, is a feral tabby cat and her father, Timpto, is a seal pointed Siamese. Amii and Timpto's romance was indeed an odd one. No cat around town could believe that the sleek independent she-cat would ever fall for a tame pet. But for whatever reason, their love endured for over a year. Eventually, Amii became pregnant and gave birth to four small kits. Each one had some of their mother's stripes, but only one had their father's luxurious long fur. Though Amii and Timpto adored each other for who they were, they argued over which life the kittens would live. Amii felt fierce pride to be a wild, self-sufficient predator while Timpto knew that the kittens would be healthier and safer inside a human's home. For their first few weeks of life the kittens lived in both worlds (the forest and the home) for brief intervals of time. After some time, however, Amii dealt an ultimatum; she knew that her kits would never truly rely on their own hint if they knew that food would be presented to them in a bowl a few days later. Timpto felt the same, because the kits spent so much time away from people during their time in the forest, they would never accept the loving touch of a human owner. Because the kittens lived two lives, they couldn't really fit into either. The parents let their children decide which life they would lead. Two of the kits chose to go with their mother to a clan of others like them: "true cats". Another chose to live with Timpto and his family, who were planning on moving away soon. So, Amii and her two sons would never be able to see Timpto and his daughter again. 
Amynne was the only kitten in the litter who didn't choose a side. She was so pained by the fact that her family was getting torn in two, and she felt powerless to stop it. Amii and Timpto still loved each other, yet seemed resigned to the fact the two worlds, wild and domestic, could ever come together again. Deeply saddened, young Amynne rejected both the life of a feral cat and the life as a pet. Amynne became a rogue cat. She would wonder into the forest and watch her brothers hunt along side Amii. Miles away, she would visit Timpto and her sister and see how they would sit in their human's laps and purred contentedly. Amynne didn't believe that these lives had to be so separated, so she made it her mission to prove that a cat could be both a hunter and a companion without compromising either.
For years Amynne wandered in and out of town, sometimes hunting her own prey and sometimes spending the night inside a human home (many people in town would often care for "stray" cats). 
Despite her success in both worlds, her family remained in two halves. After a few years Timpto's family moved much closer to Amii's forest. Amii and Timpto were very old now, with silver fur lining both of their muzzle's. The entire family was together once more, just like they had been all those years ago. When they saw Amynne they were all astonished. This she-cat had boldly chosen to not align with either "faction" of cats, yet she looked so happy and healthy. Her siblings admired her courage to love not two very different worlds. Amynne had proven to her parents that a cat could be a pet without losing all of their wild heritage and ability. Amii and Timpto were very proud of their daughter, and were glad to have learned so much from her. That night Amii and Timpto laid beside each other in the yard, not quite in the house yet not quite in the forest either. Beneath the moonlight, the two lovers passed away together.
After their parents' death, Amynne's wild brothers began to approach people as well, and were delighted by some of the comforts that they never would have had if they were solely wild. Her pampered sister began to experiment with hunting in the forest and returned to her human home every night. With her mission complete and the cat world changed forever, Amynne felt empty for the first time in her life. Her parents had left her, but were together again. Her siblings had learned to build a bridge across both worlds. What was she supposed to do now? That's when she decide to wander the world and teach other cats and kits her findings. A cat can choose what life it wanted to love, and that choice did not have the power to tear apart families. A cat could devote its life to a human, devote its life to hunting and claiming territory or, as Amynne proved for the first time, a cat could do both.

Amynne spends her days wandering around towns and forests, sharing her findings with other cats. She tells them of the joy her brothers had being wild cats, the luxury her sister had being a pet and how her and her siblings now experienced the best of both worlds. Amynne is known far and wide. She has saved families from splitting like hers did.
She is respected as a wild cat and welcomed into the homes of many different people. She has never joined a clan or worn a collar. Amynne continues to prove that a cat doesnt have to belong to a human or a wild clan to be happy and to belong.

Dear Mom,
   You should be aware by now that I'm *slightly* socially anxious. I only ask that you remember this if we go shopping together. Therefore, when we're in a quiet pharmacy (in the card section) please REFRAIN FROM TESTING OUT EVERY CARD THAT SINGS OR MAKES LOUD NOISES THAT MAKE PEOPLE STARE AT US. Thank you.
 you daughter (who is now having heart palpitations)

Hello All^^
Im an 18 year old only child from New York, though I do have DA siblings:3
My favorite thing to draw is anthro/furry wolves, though I assure you, everything in my gallery is clean, and always will be^^
I also do other 'furry' species and realistic art/ still lives
I've been drawing "seriously" for about four years, and I hope that I improve with every picture, but thats a matter of opinion^^ my favorite media are colored pencils, markers and water colors (though I have been known to use acrylic, pen and crayon)
I really hope that you find something you like in my gallery
If you have any other questions about me or have any suggestions on how I can improve artistically please comment or note! :'D

Hi Aqui,

I need another idea for the final hybrid. The lemur drake isn't working out. X'D

We have something finny and something fluffy--perhaps something else?
(Spam me with a bunch of ideas ahaha~)
Aquiavel Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hello my good sir! :D

no problem, lemurs do that to me too >< 
hmmm...I'm trying to think of something without fins or excess fluff XD

*alltherandom* X'D 
FlameKurosei Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
