Dearest Franklin, what an utterly gorgeous example of a Persian kitty you are! Your white fluffy fur is so beautiful, I just wish I could reach all the way to Smithville, Missouri to pet you and skritch you and brush your fur and rub your tummy! You are so cute in your belly-up naps, and you have the sweetest face with the wisest, most friendly expressions in your straight-on shots.

And not only are you so handsome, you have the sweetest Purrrsonality! No wonder your family love you so very much. You helped to ease their hearts after they lost their earlier Persians from old age and disease. And you have a delightful sister, Butterscotch, who is your best friend now. What a sweet video of you loving on her! You have your own little quirks of energy and affection, that keep your family smiling. They love you so very much, and you love them in return. What a wonderful Furrrever home you and they all share!

Congratulations, darling Franklin, on being selected today's Cat of the Day! We hope you and Butterscotch and your family and friends are all enjoying a fine day of celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.
