One of the protagonists of Zoo City is Sloth, the animal symbiote that accompanies Zinzi everywhere. He may be just a sloth or a guardian angel or a demon parasite or a lost ancestor spirit, a scientology thetan or broken-off part of a reincarnated soul warped by toxic plastics in the environment, Zinzi’s Jiminy Cricket or the devil on her shoulder.

What is certain is that he’s cute as hell (just don’t get on the wrong side of those claws).

Witness: the marvel of slothitude.
