So in the end we all decided that Melvin was going to become a Siamese cat. This was a nice interesting breed but also had a simple coat so it wouldn't take Sarah very long to texture him, where as if we had chosen a tabby Sarah might have been texturing the cat for longer than we needed.
Now this is where I'm going to geek out a little, I found it amusing (and Im probably the only one who does and ever will find it amusing) but our cat Melvin reminded me of another Siamese cat...called Melvin. Except this Melvin has far less polygons.... and lives in a game.
For a while now I've been watching a guy on YouTube by the name of "Chimneyswift11", he mainly does Gaming videos, one of his most popular videos are his Minecraft ones. He has a series on his channel called the Minecraft Files, where he builds stuff every week and goes out adventuring in his Minecraft world. One day he went out and got a cat. This cat was a little Siamese cat which he (after a few episodes) names Melvin.
I know this is completely irrelevant but I thought it was cool that he had a Siamese cat called Melvin and then we ended up picking a Siamese cat called Melvin.
