Basil does have a split personality. He's either the biggest mushface you ever saw. Drooling, purring and pawing, running meowing to greet me when I get home. Or he's an absolute terror, attacking legs, ambushing from the chairs under the table.
He has pink paw pads (loves to have his feet tickled). He does though, have an underlying striping through his coat, that can only be seen at certain angles. He also has a kink at the end of his tail. It's weird, when I stroke another cat, even Tasha, the smooth tail feels strange to me. :laughing:
