My absolute favourite cat ever. This is a manul, or pallas cat. Found in the Afghan mountains, they’re one of the oldest pure-blood cousins of our own goggies.
they look like fat balls of rage
Just gonna leave this here
That last picture looks so much like how I imagined the Cheshire cat. I didn’t know that expression was possible on a real cat. Whoa.
I have no idea if it’s the nostalgia speaking, but I have so many fond memories of Outlands zones and quests and none of Cata :(. (I did not experience Wrath content, can’t say anything about it)
I found Classic big and intimidating and full of strange little things to explore. Lots of it was so dangerous to get near at the time, and there were a ton of quests that were really difficult if not impossible alone. BC had a lot of similar pieces, exchanging some of the danger for a really endless sense of wonder at the strange locations and beautiful vistas. Wrath was lovely in a different way, generally less flashy but well-grounded in fantasy tropes.
Cata had none of those things and I don’t think I’ll go back.
