Tabbicus is a member of the furry fandom. He was introduced to it by A.G. Silver Shepherd in December of 2005. He has been mated to Khortl Wolf since October of 2006.

The character[edit]

Tabbicus Polydactyl Domesticus (commonly shortened to Tabbi or Tabs) has adopted the avatar of a polydactyl cat. His fur is royal blue with yellow markings. He has medium-length maroon hair and green eyes. He is usually depicted wearing his distinguishing purple sunglasses. Tabbicus has a fun-loving personality. He is very friendly and is always willing to lend an ear.

Origins[edit]

The main inspiration for the Tabbicus fursona is one of Tabbi's cats in real life, Paws. He is a polydactyl Maine Coon. Like the character, Paws has twenty-six toes.

The name, Tabbicus Domesticus, has no real-life significance. It was coined to sound like a taxonomic classification.

Tabbi's main colors (blue, gold, and maroon) were inspired by the colors of the Arizona State Flag.

Con attendance and activity[edit]

Tabbicus has attended the following conventions:

Poker Tournaments[edit]

Since 2010, Tabbi has directed poker tournaments at Califur and Rocky Mountain Fur Con. As of 2014, he is also in charge of Further Confusion's tournament.

Phoenix Furness[edit]

Tabbicus is credited with coining the name Phoenix Furness. Before the convention idea was abandoned, he was a member of the convention's board and served in the capacity of Guest of Honor Relations.
