[edit] Fursona

Electric Keet is not a fursona but merely a creative, slightly absurdist pseudonym that has gradually become both her business and personal name. While the name is not intended to connote any particular species, the "Keet" portion does originate as a variant of the word "parakeet."

In specifically furry contexts, Jessie is most often portrayed as a large, moderately anthropomorphic snow leopard with completely greyscale fur, a modified species. Frequently, this portrayal will include accessories or even the full appearance of being of a similar style to the programs in the film TRON (Disney, 1982) complete with violet glow.
