Sparticas and I thank-you for your compliments. I tell people that Sparticas is our *mentally challenged* kitty, he isn't dumb but is definately very slow to figure things out. I sometimes wonder if he isn't deaf because he reacts more to the other cats responses to things going on around them. He also has the wimpiest meow that you have ever heard. Sometimes when the other cats are sleeping somewhere and he is awake and prowling he just squeeks out the most hilarious meows while walking around on the search of his companions. He is the *peace-maker* in the house and doesn't have a mean bone in his body. When we acquired our other kittens he is the one that takes the newcomer under his wing and makes sure that the transition is a smooth one.
