    With all this Scout Doggeral and Cattery, it just occurred to me:

    We're still missing Llamas for the Inca.

    Modders! 2K! This has to be corrected by tonight!

    Well, while not all Civs are equal, that's still not the same as adding OP content for $$. Firaxis have wisely stayed away from that!

    Nope, you can get them still :)

    What I would like to see are Scouts accompanied by Spider Monkeys riding on the backs of fully armored Battle Koalas.

    Either there's a cultural reference there I'm missing, or Browd's a fun chaperone on school trips to the zoo. :hmm:

    I'll stick with the historically accurate dog, a.k.a man's best friend.
    Everyone knows that realistically cat's won't listen and not follow the scouts. :p

    I see it more as the scout is following the cats, trying to get them to come in at night.

    No,no: if we must have pigs, they have the be the "more Equal Than Others" pigs from Orwell's Animal Farm: in this case, one big Porker leading a bunch of smaller animals . . .

    The scouts trying to chase the cats and keep them in line is how the map gets explored. Perhaps you can excuse it this way.

    This is a toss up for me. There is some humor for the cats. The dog with the scout makes much sense. I would like it more if only the human player had the cats and barbarians had dogs, but the way it is now is all scouts have cats and barbarians with scouts and cats is wimpy.

    Does your scout cat meoww? Mine doesn't. Thought they were supposed to while the scouts are fighting

    (i want my cat to hear them while he is sitting next to me as I play. The expression on his face when he hears other cats meow = priceless)

    Cat scouts should be put on auto-explore by default, to reflect the independent exploration agenda of the cats, as it has been mentioned in a few posts above :D

    Don't underestimate the power of Cats.

    Spoiler Compare this rare documented evidence of a Dog scout on explore mode encoutering a Cat scout, presumably on rest&repair mode :

    It was fun to have it in one game, but it doesn't personally do it for me so I disabled it. They didn't make a sound which was a bummer too.

    It would be fun, though, if our great modding community would introduce other animated creatures.
