The World of Animus

The many, merry adventures of Baron von Meowhausen, Time-Traveller and Culinary Explorer extraordinaire

Like Baron von Munchausen, Meowhausen the cat lives in fantasy. He meets talking animals & has many Puss in Boots like adventures on the fantasy world of Animus.

Meet Raven

Meet Raven the dog, another real-world pet, who won the Animus Characters' Casting Competition of April 2014.

Hailing from a wealthy family, Raven was plagued by uncertainty. On the one paw—she had everything she could possibly want: the best recreation, education and a guaranteed cushy future and yet… something was amiss.

She found out that she possessed the power to feel the moods of others and even locate folks through their feelings. The reason why, since puppyhood, she could not shake the feeling that something was wrong, was because something WAS very wrong. Her uncle had corrupted her father’s once-noble clockwork toy factory and elevated himself, by trampling on the rights of others.

Having run out of options, but determined to make a change, she sets off on a defiant quest to Angelholm, to bring justice to her home town of Frisbee. She does just that, but not at all in the way that she had expected.

Meet Fabio

Meet Fabio the cat — one of the real-world pets who won the Animus Characters' Casting Competition of April 2014 and who will be the hero of his own story!

Fabio’s alter ego on Animus, starts out life as a vain princeling. Although this Fabio refuses to follow in the paw-tracks of his belligerent father and become a warlord, he remains an aloof and narcissistic playboy. Eventually, he falls for an unusual girl and must learn the meanings of love and honour, to keep his young family safe from his father’s ever-waxing wrath.
