Surely all those drawings of scantily clad female felines are missing about four mammary glands, each?

Take an idea from one person and twist or modify it in a different way as a return suggestion so another person can see a part of it that can apply to the oxp they are working on.

I went for tiger-sized. I assume as all the 'races' around the eight use the same ships, stations etc, they are probably roughly similar in size to each other (and us). So leopard to tiger size.

on the feline subject, i always fancined doing some of the Kilrathi ships for Oolite, there were some stonking asymmetrical designs over the various episodes.

I think you may be underestimating the size of a tiger.

I have an uninvited mouse living under my refrigerator. It gets around the house using the same doorways I use.

It's roughly twice as big as a person:

Ah, but does the mouse drive your car?

And yes, Tigers are big, which is why I said leopard to tiger. Somewhere between the two. You could only vote for one. :)

I come in peace. That tone you hear is definitely not a missile lock-on. I guarantee it.

That's why I originally voted for leopard. However, later I saw the "roughly human size" option which suit me better. And—wonder of wonders—I was able to re-cast my vote. It was subtracted from the leopards and added to the last option.

I didn't know about this option before. I think in former times all polls used to be one-time-and-no-rethinking only.
