My Furry Family: Zack
Aliases and Bio
Zack's name history is a little messed up. At first I thought he was a she, so I named her (him) Zhora, from Blade Runner. When I learned he was a he, instead of naming him Leon, which would have been much more appropriate given the theme, for reasons entirely unknown I went with the "Z" alliteration, and so he became Zack. I've often thought about renaming him, but Zack stuck. Go figure. And about the "Orange Tank" thing... the battering ram is his head (he loves to head-butt), and the two pile drivers are his front feet (he kneads like he's hitting a punching bag); he's actually aggressively affectionate, and will come at you like a tank, with no care as to what may be in the way—I confess that I lose a fair amount of sleep thanks to him. And "Jabba the Gut" is in response to how that enormous belly of his looks when he's reclining—I can just picture C-3PO standing next to him translating his gibberish. Zack is paunchy, loveably dimwitted, and best characterized as the "big dumb kid" you knew in grade school.
