How do you feel about catgirls/nekos?

by
They're kind of pointless now that there's furry, wouldn't you say?
I'm still exploring the idea of going on a 'furry hiatus' and as a result I have considered resorting to putting ears and tails on humans just like in the good ol' japanese pics I'm still obsessed with. But it occurred to me that it would be really be a compromise --that by putting ears/tails on humans I'd be 'wanting' them to be furry but arbitrarily holding back, and settling on character designs that are neither this nor that.

That said there is another in-between worth exploring-- Examples include satyrs, and Katt from Breath of Fire. In other words, human from the waist up and furry from the waist down. I always felt this as being totally different from furry and catgirl, and in its own way better than both. (Do you agree?) Technically the furry half defeats the purpose of a 'furry hiatus' (since the legs still involve animal anatomy) but I could avoid that by exploring TF themes where the legs are still are primarily human and have 5 toes. (which makes sense, in the sense that I honestly don't see why a toe would fall off or regress, and because it would explain why they are half-and-half. And because TF is very exciting, whereas being born like that would be a bit boring, and perhaps a wasted opportunity.)

So I pose this question. Can a catgirl/neko have its own unique charm in a way that justifies it being not furry, but not human either? How so? And do you know of any pics which you feel exemplify this?

I do not mind 'em some of em can be nice, some people mark -mimi characters as Furry, however they do are closer to Humans than to Animal, I wuld not mind to see some Nekomimi or Inumimi around even if they will not be able to do as youre Deers do (say hallo to Mireille for me ^.^).
How ever you asked if -mimi characters have theyre own Unique charm that is not Furry, Human or Ferral...my answer is yes they do. How so? They are not Animals (yes I am seeing Furryes as Highly Evolved Animals, basicly Humans are Ape Furryes....but that is a discusion for Other time) nor Human.

''even if they will not be able to do as youre Deers do'' I was going to ask what you mean by that. But I agree that putting tail/ears on a human will not be able to do the job as well as a furry.

site policy do not allow Human in Adult situations, even if Nekomimi (or any other -mimi) are not humans local site polici is counting em as Humans so you will not be able to display em in +16 (Nude) or +18 (Adult) situations, as you did displayed with youre deers

For me -mimis with ears an tail are not furry, but not human either. But they are close to humans. They have a unique charm, most in a cute an cheering way. Hybrids/Half-beeings like Katt/Rinpoo or Felicia from Darkstalkers have another charm. They are more like furries, but not the same. When I think about -mimis, I can think of them in normal modern human situations, like shopping or anything. When I think about anthro-furries, I can do this, too. Of course, not with every anthro. But when I think about the half-beeings it is rather difficulty. Thinking of Katt going shopping in a mall is... weired. In this way, even if they have less furr than "real" furries, their charm is more animalistic to me.

I like all of them and don't want to miss any kind.
