But hey, there are Khajiit in Skyrim, and Minecraft 1.2 introduced cats! They’re pet-like, but they scare Creepers.
Game Dev: And now we'll take questions from the audience. Little blue ewok, you're up first.
Bink: Thank you. I was wondering if you could comment on the game industry's portrayal of feline characters.
Game dev: Do you mean "female?"
Bink: No sir. I mean feline. The dearth of non-housepet feline characters in modern games is appalling.
Panel 3: Game dev: Cats are stinky, anti-social hairballs.
Audience: Hear, hear! Kick the ewok out!
Bink is flying through the air, having just been booted out of the panel room.
Little girl: Daddy! Can you take my picture with the flying blue ewok?
