If my cat was from an RPG

Yes, it’s totally gaming-nerd humor, deal with it. This morning, my idiot cat was more psychotic than usual, and the thought randomly popped into my head that he was spamming his skill bar. That, of course, led to an absolute need to quantify what that skill bar consisted of. Naturally, that led to another absolute need to figure out what the skill icons would look like and then generate them. This is the result of a Saturday afternoon’s silliness; enjoy.
