    I came across these 'real life' tribbles and had to stick them up on the website for which I write.

    What do you think... close?

    Huh. I always thought Tribbles were the hairballs coughed up by really big cats.

    ^They are. It's just that those really big cats apparently had Angora Rabbits for lunch before coughing up the hairball... :p

    I always thought (neutered) tribbles would make the perfect pet for a kid. Love getting stroked, purrs, and apparently doesn't need to eat that much.

    I've always felt that long haired guinea pigs looked an awful lot like tribbles considering that you can't see their faces at all.
