I did a Google image search for billy-bumblers and nothing there came close to what I imagined Oy would look like. King makes several references to Oy's unusually long neck but no image I've seen portrays Oy with such a neck.
When this comes out on film, I am looking forward to seeing how Oy looks!

Probably something like a red panda I'm guessing
Maybe they could digitally elongate the neck

I always pictured a cross between a mink and a raccoon but with a more pleasant disposition.
I don't know a lot about minks but the raccoons that were on our deck recently seemed to be somewhat tame (of course they were scarfing down a large quantity of bread and there was a lot to go around). It was a mother raccoon with four babies.

Only saw them that one time and then they never came back.

Raccoons are visious. Gosh, I've seen them attacking. Not me, but a crate of kittens that a neighbor was saving. It was horrible to hear and see. They look cute, but do not go near.
Okay thanks - I will be more careful in future - my Siamese cat was staring at them through the screen door when I was throwing food scraps out onto the deck (this was tonight).

I was quite surprised to see them come back as they had been gone for quite a while.

They could easily have charged toward Bailey and attacked if they were quick, but luckily they seemed more interested in the goodies that they were scarfing down!
