One of the best series of books I have ever read is the Sholan Alliance series by Lisanne Norman. A Human girl telepathically bonds with a young Sholan, a telepathic felid alien from the planet Shola, altering the course of her life, and the lives of both species. A very good seires, and I highly recommend it. This is a fairly old drawing, from a year or two ago. I thought it looked more feminine, so instead of making it Kusac or Kaid, one of the big male Sholans, I decided it would be Physician Vanna Kijyshi, the Sholan medic, and quite a prominent character in the book.
