Doesn't have to be your cat.

We should have a virtual cat ... as a member.

And it could prowl along the forums, jumping from literary ledges to ledges in an attempt to create a much more relaxed environment. Cats are good for inspiration, and they might even be good critters. Just imagine the scene.

You're in real life and it's raining and there's no feline in sight. You switch on your computer and you're greeted by the wonders that is YWO, yet there's something missing. And that something is a cat. And then everything is okay again because you spot its waving tail as it disappears into the poetry only section, jumping onto the words and playing with the poems like string.

We can find a pre-existing cat and give it a virtual identity (Descartes would be pleased), and we can let it press on the keys as if it were speaking. It would be hilarious to see something like:

Tsuki: I agree with Spacey completely. But Coco, could you please clarify your point a little bit better.
CocoTheCat:sssssssssssssssssaiodjejoiadijefwd mkcgwruh4ew98
Shaun: I agree with Coco.
The possibilities (like Skittles) would be endless.

Cats are also fun.

And newbs will love them.

Oh, and we can make her (tabby, and called Coco, and it'll smell of chocolate) cough fur-balls onto trolls or the "bad people". Yes, it might poop a lot but we can get mods to clean it up. Isn't that what they're for? I jest about that part. I jest. Our lives would be so much more complete.

Spoiler:



I rest my case. Who's with me?! *rawr*



EDIT: If we were going to have a virtual cat, we'd need massive virtual windows and a burning hydrogen star. Win.

EDIT2: Oh, and if you don't comply, I'll bring my cat army and take you all on! You'll make this cat ever more sad.

Yes, well go suggest names for the cat and stop clogging this thread with spam.
