Fictional Animals

Animals portrayed in fiction that you either wish were real, or are just plain fascinated by. In this context, only things that fail the Harkness Test and are organic may qualify. Cryptids are also welcome.

My indoor cat, very timid, escaped outside again. Now she's hiding beneath the house. I almost lured her inside with food but she runs immediately at any small movement. I know I can probably eventually get her in but I wanted to know if anyone has any tips or tricks that aren't obvious which would make it easy; every time I've done this I eventually just bait the entryway and tie a string to the door and around a nail outside so I can pull it and shut her in, but I usually have to wait a while for her to actually fall for it.

Anyone else get really fucking depressed about land clearing / suburban sprawl/ habitat loss? The woods behind my house are being turned into a strip mall and car wash, which will drain into the nearby stream
I told the builders they were leeches and pimps at town hall meetings but it still breaks my heart

Dogs and Pets aren't fucking worth it bros. I loved my fucking dog so much and he died from bone cancer this year. I'm fucking heart broken he was my only friend and he died suffering from some bullshit disease he didn't deserve. And now I'm left here to fucking think about him every goddamn day and dream about him when I go to bed every night. I love those 4 years I spend with him but it's not worht living with the pain of losing him and not having him with me anymore. I wish I never got him in the first place I know it sounds selfish. FUcking shit man why did I get a dog,.
