Yeah, okay, he's a feline. With whiskers, and a tail, and a furry bum, and the like. But.
He also plays Fetch. And waits by the door for his Daddy to come in. And he lies in the most unglamorous of poses*.

MM is now watching him like a hawk. She informed me this morning that robins were teasing him, unaware that Softy-Ptol: friend to man and beast alike, had been replaced by Nimro-Ptol: Mighty Hunter before the Lord.
