I'm afraid that I can't pass along your tummy scratches. Norman is NOT a fan of having his tummy scratched. I think he's sensitive of his "spare tire!"
I really do adore this cat. The cat I had when I was last living at home lived to be 17. She passed away several years after I moved out. I always tell Norman, "I hope you live to be 17." Then I tell Sarah, "You better not live past 10!"
Norman just has such an incredible personality. I think he may have spoiled me for cats forever. I am willing to take his brattiness as a part of the package because he's really a very sweet boy. I've never had a cat like him before. I've never even met a cat like him before.
Thanks for admiring my little guy!
