A water-dwelling mammal who typically feeds on crustaceans but isn’t above making a meal out of a small animal it can catch on the banks of the river. The otter is, however, uncomfortable with people and rather rare in the cats’ world.
|Social Organization :||
Small family groups; pairs raising their young are common.
|Approval Level :||Mod; Otters create holts and settle in an area. They are also difficult for cats to drive off, thus meaning that the local moderator needs to be made aware of them appearing in RP.|
|Danger Level :||Medium (Very young and very old are vulnerable);
Very small or very weak cats should take care while fishing, otters may choose to grab a cat and pull them under to their doom.
