I'll be continuing the story later, but I thought I'd do this sketch of BJ's species (both uncle and nephew) with a kind of generic uninvolved third party. I've been thinking of them as ringtails, but they're not quite. They're their own thing that's partway between a lot of mammals in a kind of feline/procyonid/mustelid hybrid way. If you look up "sand cats", they've got that same coloration, but they're not cats.
Maybe I could just call them "ringoids".
