Oh, Duke Rufus, what an utterly gorgeous Maine Coon follow you are.. and at only five months old, you are still a growing boy! It's hard to imagine just how huge you will grow to be! Just look at those great big paws, and those long, LOOOOOONG whiskers, and those eyes with the look of knowing just what you want and how to get it. Your fur is beautifully colored and tabby-patterned. I wish I could reach through the screen all the way to Italy and pet you!
You and your humans love each other very much, don't you! You are such fun to live with, sometimes playing fetch, sometimes requesting a water source be opened, sometimes licking them to show your affection. You are a kind and gentle ruler of your household, aren't you! What a wonderful home full of love you all share.
Congratulations, darling Rufus, on being selected today's Cat of the Day! We hope you and your humans are enjoying a delightful day of celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.
I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
