You're thinking "that's not a dog, it's a cat".
And you'd be right.
Except SWMBO has said frequently "that cat follows you around like a dog."
And he does.
The other one doesn't like me coming near her except when she's relaxing on the bed and I come into the room.
Then she sets up a caterwauling until I sit down and give her a good pet.
When I stop, she voices a "quack" sound, like a duck.
But she (Muggles) is more my wife's cat then mine.
But Blackwell loves only me and wants to be where-ever I am.
If I'm at the computer he comes in, jumps up on the armchair and stays there as long as I remain in the room.
When I get up to go to another part of the house, he wakes up and follows me.
If I sit down in the recliner in the living room, he jumps into my lap.
If I go outside, he sits by the slider where he can watch me.
Or waits patiently by the front door until I come back in.
You may have noticed his two somewhat imperfect ears.
The right one has a notch in it which I suspect he got in a neighborhood brawl with another dog or cat when he was young.
He was a feral cat when we took him in and had been in some fierce scraps that left an open wound around his neck.
Then when I took him to the animal center to have him "fixed", the young lady who took him asked if he had been feral and would I like them to notch his ear to let people know that was so if he got away from us.
Anticipating a small notch as in the other ear I assented and then was shocked when I picked him up and saw that they had lopped off the tip of his left ear.
So my aging prizefighter has a rugged look.
Not picture perfect.
But he is loyal to me.
Like a dog.
My dog Blackwell.
