Let me introduce you to Toulouse, our tuxedo cat. In truth she is our daughter's, adopted from a friend whose cat found herself "in the family way". She has the softest fur you've ever touched, if you can get a chance to touch it that is.
They say "Dogs have owners, cats have staff." We're here to feed her, water her, let her out, let her in, let her out, let her in, let her out...no...in.... and clean up various excretions. And when she's in the mood...if you're lucky, she'll climb into your lap, press her soft white paws against your chest and rub her face against yours while a deep purr rumbles within her. Us humans may think she's expressing love and gratitude, but in the cat world she's saying: "You're mine, beyotch!"
