Oh, dearest Gypsy, what a stunning Australian beauty you are! ..so sweet and clean and silky after your bath here. We are so glad your Purrrson and her friends found you and your litter-mates when they were cleaning the cabin and took you all to safety. You got a wonderful home with her and her family, didn't you! (We hope all your litter-mates got wonderful homes too.)
Congratulations, darling Gypsy, on being selected today's Cat of the Day! We hope you and your whole family are enjoying a wonderful day of celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite treats and games.

"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
