Soosh ears are for listening, of course! They're also used for communication and are very expressive, standing tall when on alert and laying flat when distressed. Ears are typically small and slightly rounded, and are positioned more towards the sides of the head than on top.
Tails are often used for communication as well, but oftentimes aren't very suited to it. Soosh tails come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, and each one has its own use. Floral tails may have a pleasant and calming aroma, aquatic tails may be helpful in swimming, and other tails may just be nice to look at.
Gourmet Tail Traits
Most gourmet tails can be considered to be "object tails," and the rest are tails which belong to other creatures. This includes floral tails, edible tails, lion tails, aquatic tails, devil tails, feather tails, and living tails (living tails technically count as two traits combined: gourmet tail + creature companion).
Rule of thumb: if you wouldn't see it on a domestic dog or cat in the real world, it's probably gourmet!
