Wanted to come up with an original hybrid that could make an awesome character. Didn't prepare, so as usual I improvised. Here is one that would walk on and jump to and fro between, and blend into, trees.
A mortherly orange Turkish angora tabby, encounters a mouse. Or is it a mouse? A very small chinchilla? Do they climb trees? Hmm.
So I came up with Molikh, a chameleonic nocturnal Jerboa chipmunk of her having migrated from the desert of Middle East, coming into selective dry forests, such as those in camping grounds, national parks, or those surrounded by highway pavement for a perfect shelter. She's happily bouncing to and fro between trees close to a beach in the Dunes, where the curious she-cat Uma stands. The she -cat tried many times as she can to trap her, not for lunch (oh no she has her proper diet from her owner, a full-time obstentrician and occasional yoga instructor in part to advocate for employment equality), but just to see what sort of rodent it is. She's no ordinary mouse, no ordinary squirrel, not even a chinchilla can reside under sandy surface! The cat fretted, but her intrigue had heightened. She's seen a variety of rodents with her owner through Animal Planet e-subscription magazines. This kind she had never seen. In fact no rodent have.
Molikh is part of a group of her type of hybrids that escaped from a lab harbored by a radical group of animal scientist for a perfect potentially multi-evolution adaptive, an experiment supposedly gone wrong as they multiplied and started to plague the deserts where most animals, be it gophers, cats, monkeys, etc. That is if the group of these rodent hybrids are the experimental group. Many scientists turned down the project, and proposed that they hunt them down. A selective group of scientists, some of them religious, some of them formerly from that lab group, attempt to save the population of the hybrids, for now there is that of a population reaching to the Least Concerned category. The experimental half must be captured but rehabilitated to a regular limited evolutionary stages, so they don't plague homes either. Luckily, the control group of the hybrids, Molikh, is discovered to exist, and as usual these hybrids are stable. While the experimental group are tested to stay in one place of environment, be it a desert, a forest, but unfortunately they won't migrate, the control group, on the other hand, will migrate and correspond well to their environmental adaptive stages (they establish that the blood flowing through their veins or genetics although mixed shall choose for them where exactly they can find food or hibernate (if at all in case of a winter). A set of such beliefs of evolution they will call Jina'muktahr (chosen gene). This is where Molikh comes in. She's found a perfect spot of climate, miles closer to the Dunes but for the time being, where she seeks acorns and several kinds of pine nuts. She can be a little mischievous, for she stays up late to noon at most for some left overs (a whiff of cheese and bread could drive her craving to a full stomach) as she faces against raccoons.
What do you think? It's a prototype by the way.
