The Characher / Fursona
MidwestCougar, also sometimes known as "Jaycee", is an anthromorphic cougar that was created in 1999 as a character for a small furry MUCK community. Since 1999, Midwest has become much more of a personal avatar rather than just a character.

Midwest has a Bachelor's degree in Art (emphasis in graphic design) and is a professional in-house and freelance graphic design artist in the northern suburbs of Chicago,IL.
Midwest discovered the furry fandom in 1999 on a small furry MUCK community. In 2004, she was invited by Kenket and another friend to Midwest Furfest. She has attended several conventions since then. At MFF 2008 she ran her first panel in Adobe Illustrator CS3 and debuted her Hops fursuit.
