The Ultimate Pet by chalicothere The Ultimate Pet by chalicothere
This is a mix of animals that was created to be the ultimate pet. It's part cat, horse, and dog (doberman pinscher) and is genetically enhanced with all the best features of each animal. From a tabby cat, it inhereted agility, cleanliness, and the distinct markings. From a Quarter Horse, it inherited size and strength (it can be ridden), and from a Doberman, it inherited loyalty, intellingence, and protectiveness. It has many uses, from a family companion, to service, farm and military work.

Cool name! Good luck getting one this century. This creature was designed to resemble some prehistoric animals, although the stripes are those of a tabby cat with inversed colors.

The mix reminds me of andresarchus,( prehistoric animal, look it up on google images) it had hooves but was a predator and looked canine-ish, pretty awesome your mix.

:iconchalicothere:
chalicothere Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2011  Professional General Artist
Thank you. Actually, Andrewsarchus is one of my favorite prehistoric animals, and was a big part of the inspiration for this. It was also based on an animal called phenacodus, which was basically an omnivorous horse relative. I applaud your cleverness for picking that up.

I hope there's enough horse/dog in there... I would not want a cat that more than half my weight anywhere near me :P One morning you forget to mix the wet food and treats in with the dry stuff and then... POW it slaughters you when you come home from work/school.

You make a very good point. I've often thought that the reason why domstic cats are so small is because they don't see us as prey (usually). This critter is supposed to have the best personality qualities from each species, and wouldn't attack without good reason.

So cool! Definitely the ultimate pet. :D I love how you mixed horses, cats, and dogs, and the thought you put into it. It also looks like a very natural mixture, which is definitely one of my main pet peeves when it comes to created species. :+fav:!
