Note: The fur and hair that cover the body of a Don Sphynx is very unstable and may change with time. It depends on the time of year and on the hormonal status of the animal. These animals are like rubber to the touchsticky.
I enjoy reading shifter stories. However, I tend to stick to the "normal" shifters -- wolves and big cats mostly. My engineering brain has a hard time suspending disbelief for large mammal shifters.
Seth McDaniel wasn't raised among a shifter passel and has no idea what it's like to turn furry once a month. An orphan, torn from his father's family at an early age, he scarcely remembers Great-aunt Irene. Now her passing brings him back to Possum Kingdom, Georgia, to take up a legacy he doesn't understand and reconnect with a friend he's never forgotten.

As we walk in to take our seats, there is an accordion player playing without much accomplishment on the set strewn with crumpled balls of newspaper. The five main cast members enter dressed as roadsweepers in bright high visibility overalls and give us a comic rendition of a song, complete with bicycle horns for percussion. It feels like a vaudeville show from past days; Benny Hill springs to mind.
Whenever you find that you are on the side of the majority, it is time to reform. The kangaroo tail is an extremely powerful catalyst. It is an obvious clue to the naked trader that the market has gone too far.
A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:.
