Here's a stray thought for you Katfans (and fanfic writers) out there:

None of the Kats in the SK series, to the best of my knowledge, have
been tattooed...  tho the tough guys could easily have them done.  Of
course, this raises a furgonomics (katgonomics?) question as to *how*
something like this would be done.  If it were done on the skin, the
fur would likely cover it up very quickly.  If fur dye were added, that
would also run out after a while, and the tattoo (kattoo?) would fade.

Any thoughts?

   In "The Watcher Files of Chance Furlong" fanfic (coming soon!) Chance
*does* get a tatoo (a watcher tatoo--but that explanation'll have to wait).
First they shave the fur and apply it. The fur takes over a week to grow
back, so it gives time for the other characters in the story (Jake and
Angus, mainly) to notice it. Once the fur is grown back, I assume that the
layer is pretty light (and so's his fur color) so it's still visible, you
just have to look for it.
