very close to a natural snow leopard and not anthropomorphized much, i prefer to walk on all four paws if i don't carry anything in my hands, and usually wear no clothes, as my thick fur protects me from coldness and wind, and also covers the parts of my body that i consider private . well padded and warmed by good blood circulation, my paws feel most comfortable in deep powder snow .
as all snow leopards, i love the highest mountains, where i can feel the power of nature most directly . if you ever saw the reflection on millions of ice particles floating in the air, forming a second sun, or experienced the sunrise on a clear winter morning from a summit; if you could feel the eternal strength of the stars in the infinite universe on a calm summer night; if you woke up after a stormy night outside your cave and saw the jagged rocks laying peacefully under a metre of deep white powder sparkling in the morning sun; if you heard the first drops of the awakening waterfall tinkle inside its frozen shape in early spring; if you warmed your white fur in warm sunbeams on a fresh flower meadow where snow just melted - then you would never want to live elsewhere !
i was solitary for most of my life, alone with myself, my thoughts and the great nature - but i also found good friends, and learned something new, the culture of cuddling . it is a really great feeling to snug to a good friend's furry body, to share each other's warmth and trust, to purr gently and form a general atmosphere of peace and comfort, wherever you are . i might appear reserved at first, but i can be extremely playful and silly too, just catch me in the right mood .
however, when it comes to my sexuality, i tend to be very shy, and if you are too nosy there, you might even feel my sharp claws digging deeply in your flesh . you must be a really good friend, and show how gentle you are, first . in general, i have no preference of gender or species . to most, it is impossible to find out my sex, as this is generally well-hidden in snow leopards .
my greatest value is certainly my own freedom, and the one of everyone else and the whole nature . i am equal to all other beings, and no one can dominate me, as i dominate no one else . i would rather live alone than integrate into a society that tries to limit my freedom . however, i believe that a society without violence or domination is possible . freedom and equality go with each other, one cannot be imagined without the other . it is hard to imagine that, as a predator, i regard my prey as equal, but when hunting, i am in danger too, and in most cases, they escape anyway - so it's a game of equal chances .
on mucks, i am mostly out of character, using them as a way to maintain my contacts to furry friends all over the world . i try to never regard anyone as inferior - but i regard no-one as superior either; while freedom and equality are both important, they should never overshadow each other .
