Dearest Nipsu, aka "Sniff" (in Finland) or "Cat," what a handsome young Tuxedo gentleman you are! I love the markings of your beautiful fur and wish I could reach down to Toledo to pet you! (I hope your Purrrson will give you some pets for me .) The picture of you in your top hat, sitting up with your paws in front of you, is great, and your baby picture is adorable! What a sweet face you have!
You and your family love each other dearly, don't you. When your special Purrrson and Mom went to the shelter, you made it clear to them that you were The One, and you and they adopted each other that day! You make them smile with your antics, taking your collar off, putting your paws in your dish to let them know when you want food, knocking your dishes off the counter... And how nice that you have a doggie pal, Dora, to hang out with, even if you don't always feel like it. What a delightful love-filled home you all share!
Congratulations, darling Nipsu, on being selected today's Cat of the Day! We hope you and Dora and your humans are all enjoying a fine day of celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats, maybe even some tuna!
I've been Frosted (thanks, Elyse and Karen!).
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."
