I've always felt a bit of a draw to Shango, what with all the circling and all, but the leopard saber skin never did anything for me. (Except for you, Azzy. <3<3) But then Cataclysm came and he had a stunning new tiger coat.
It was over for me then. But I didn't know it yet.
After all, I had no room for said tiger. Kalliope's stable is packed and I don't have "doubles" of pets on her. Kallimon already had two cats, which was far more than enough. I don't see myself leveling any more hunters that high either.
In a recent Petopian forum thread discussing Hawkbane, the missing white tiger from Terokkar, I suggested that he might return with a new skin, hopefully something wonderful like the dawnsaber skin. I felt bad putting that out there, since there was no way I'd tame him for that skin myself, unless I tamed Shango too and made a pair of them on Kallimon, even though he doesn't have room.
That was meant to be a joke, but there was the ring of truth in it. Regardless of what will happen with Hawkbane, I knew that I had to have Shango. On Kallimon. Now.
So, meet Jalapeno, Jambalaya's relation in some capacity.
Friggin' cats. They boss me around like no other....
