Like ushimimi, their ears are on the side of their head instead of at the top. Their hair is typically incredibly poofy, because it’s actually wool. Which means that they should probably be sheared at regular intervals. Hitsujimimi wool is a large part of their culture, and many pride themselves on taking good care of it (and having it cut is a Big Deal in hitsujimimi communities).
Hitsujimimi have incredible memory, and can kick and headbutt very effectively. They’re often mistaken for helpless, but don’t be fooled.
