Imber describes themself as a masculine enby, demon puppy-goat! Curious about petplay for many years, Imber started getting into the petplay community when Covid hit. Luckily, they were still able to find ways to participate and make some meaningful connections! They're passionate about their work as a pharmacy assistant, where the majority of their experience has been with addictions and vulnerable populations.
Imber enjoys writing, painting figures, and learning new things. They also enjoy folklore and the supernatural, as well as anything cute and spooky. They can be a shy creature, but are also friendly, promise! Feel free to come say hi at any Calpah events!
You wanted Chaotic Good? You found the right PuppyCat. Self proclaimed as the original PuppyCat, a nickname his dad gave him when he was just a teen, it’s part of his petplay-sona now in memory of his dad. He is just a big silly sweetheart most of the time, but when Keety is not causing light chaos for amusement, he can be found enjoying the company of his friends, photographing or hiding away playing Endless hours of Stardew Valley.
If you want to talk about Rubber/latex, he is more than happy to partake in the conversation, or if you wanna add/switch to shibari/rope play, you are pandering to his interests!
Come say hi, Ask for a hug, they are rated 4.8 stars on Yelp!
