Member of the Board of Directors

Email: koakako@yahoo.com

Second Life Name: KO Okey

KO's been a tabby cat since he was a 3 years old, though he's only known about this "Furry" thing since 2000. (And yes, he IS much older than he looks!) He used to herd these wild critters on Staff, but they just wanted to kill him with stress. So he told them to go kill Shiro instead. He had many broken bones and concussions when he was much younger, so be mindful of the brain damage and speak slowly. He and PITA are happily married, so no hitting on the Unicorns! Overheard last year: "We're paying HOW MUCH for running credit cards!?" Current motto: "Smaller hotels are better, because WE will be the normal ones around here!". If he's about to have (another) nervous breakdown, please give lots of hugs...

Generally found running around the Dealers' Den making sure everything is ok and that the network hasn't crashed, again. He's a Lynx by nature, personality and traits aside, he's just a big 'ol friendly kitty. Give him a hug and a scritch and he's your friend forever.

As he works in the music business and has run sound professionally, as well as being able to fill in on lead guitar, drums or what have you, the stripy meow can be most helpful, and can be seen typically walking somewhere very fast in his signature white shirts, beige jeans and tiger tail, tracking down lost instruments or delivering love and scoldings to stray artists, depending how stray they are at the moment. His goal- best furry music track of any con, ever, each year :D

Kamau is a Barbary lion with the typical tawny brown coat fur and black mane. He has white fur on his lower muzzle which forms somewhat of a pointed beard. His eyes are orange and he has a slight boarder of blond fur that frames his face before the black of his mane starts. Kamau's upbringing is very country and he is most at home out in the wild or rural areas. He is fun loving but in moderation. He believes work comes first but will also try to find some enjoyment in the work he is doing. He is easy to crack a smile and usually has a very pleasant disposition (unless he's under pressure). He can take a joke and will give as good as he gets in puns. He likes to listen to music mostly of folk, country or 60's rock. He enjoys a good party but is not a party animal preferring just sharing some good conversation with friends over a beer or as he prefers English cider. When it comes time to work or when there is an emergency he is single minded in doing what needs to be done.
