Dearest Lando, aren't you the sweetest young man, with your grey Tuxedo markings and your pale-golden eyes! We're so glad you were rescued but sorry your siblings did not survive. You are a very smart young fellow, aren't you, responding to your name and playing Fetch! You're a growing boy, full of energy, and love to play with toys and with your doggie roommate Ruby. What a wonderful home full of love you and your family share!
Congratulations, darling Lando, on being selected today's Cat of the Day! We hope you and Ruby and your whole family are all enjoying a fine day of celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.

Death thought about it.
"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
