What is a Furcot?
Furcot's appear in several books by Alan Dean Foster.
The original book they appeared in was Midworld published in 1975.
Midworld is a green planet of stratisfied rainforest 3/4mile high with seven distinct levels. Humans live on level 3 and are all accompanied by a furcot.
Furcot's are green and furry and have 6 arms/legs and accompany their human for life.
The Midworld series was expanded in 1995 with Mid-Flynx.
Both are well worth a read!
So why Furcot for the website?
Well many years ago George played around with CB and his handle was Furcot.
When he was first asked to choose a name for his isp all the ones he & Jenny had agreed on were already taken so he chose Furcot and the name has stuck, even the house name follows on the furcot theme!
