Punkin is an odd cat. He is the best cat we've ever had. He is calm, friendly, gentle, undemanding, and clean. He is still very playful, although he's six years old. He has tolerated every new cat here very well. Even Sterling, who harasses Punkin all the time, just gets wrestled with.
The funny thing is that Punkin is NOT a lap cat. He wants to be near us, and he follows everywhere in the house, but he won't cuddle up. He rode about 400,000 miles in our truck, riding on the dashboard, passenger seat, or map basket by the driver's seat, so we could pet him whenever we wanted to.
He also has a funny, wiggling walk that has sometimes prompted us to call him "Swivelbutt."
He has almost no voice at all, and the tiniest little purr.
