Ever wondered what it's like to be here in Huntsville for Rocket City FurMeet? Our Treasurercat Brody put together an animutation to show you!

You'd think it would be exaggerated or something, but this is what it was *really* like at RCFM this last May. It's a documentary! These furs are all crazy!

Missing Kentucky Snow Leopard

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)

Attempts to capture a declawed snow leopard that escaped its owner's home in Shepherdsville, Kentucky this week have been unsuccessful, and the owner says he is afraid someone will hurt the endangered animal.

The 2-year-old leopard, owned by Tim Peveler, is white with black spots. Being declawed lessens the chance that it would harm people or other animals, said Mark Marraccini, a spokesman for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife.

"Men Charged for Taping Explosive to Bunny
Two Calififornia Men Charged for Taping Explosive to Pet Rabbit"

It seemed like luck had run out for Lucky the rabbit. Strapped to a powerful explosive with a lit fuse, she was tossed into a lake. But Lucky lived up to her name. The explosive didn't blow up, and the rabbit was pulled out of the water.

Now Lucky's college-bound owner and his friend face misdemeanor charges of animal cruelty after photos of the July 13 incident surfaced on the Internet.

Tigger Acquitted of Molestation

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

Tigger fursuiter Michael Chartrand was found not guilty on the molestation charges brought against him. The charges occurred while he was working as Tigger at Walt Disney World, a role he considered a "dream". Today, he wants his job back. Disney declines comment.

Tigger's defense attorney is also a professional fursuiter. The DA's argument included an illustration of the hampered mobility of wearing a fursuit, which the attorney demonstrated in court by donning a Tigger fursuit himself.

The jury deliberated for less than an hour before returning the verdict. They said the fursuit defense had nothing to do with the verdict. It was the lack of evidence that decided the case, including the prosecution's inability to prove that Michael was even the Tigger in the photo. Click here for the full story.

Our theme for this year is "Growing Pains". Come help us celebrate many kinds of "growth" in the fandom: the personal, the physical, the social, and the spiritual. Our programming will include free food festivities, several performance events, and panels aimed at a wide array of furry interests--on issues ranging from spirituality to lifestyle to living with disabilities.

Check us out online at for more information about the convention, or to register online. See you next May!
