The last two panels were invented as part of this to try and give you readers an idea when this story is set. The idea hitting me before actually writing a date on a newspaper. ... I have never looked at so many reference images before to get a character right even if for a single panel. My reasons for research is Socks was real and not fictitious. Also no single photo gives a good broad idea of the first fuzzball's coat markings. With all the photos I had to view just for the heck of it, I read up on the little guy beyond what I remember from back in the day. I knew he had to be dead by now but was shocked to learn when he passed, born 1989 died 2009. I can only hope Theta has that luck. ... Er, yeah Socks met his end in pain. ... Don't want the pain bit for Theta in the end. Also among the interesting tidbits I learned, I discovered there was meant to be an SNES game with his basis. Thanks to a programmer or programmers who got a hold of the source code for the unfinished game, they finished it and it's available for free download. You will need an SNES emulator if you want to play it. I've had snes9x instilled for quite a while and have a good opinion of it.
