Here, then, is Bogart, third of the four cats:

He has irresistable soft fur. He's adorable. But also evil. Never mind that when I was driving him from SLO to Las Vegas he howled continuously for the first four hours. He is still vocal, particularly at night, but nothing like that. What really sets him apart are his teeth. He can be so sweet but he gets a little moody from time to time and if one picks him up at the wrong time he bites. It isn't play-biting, like with most other cats. He's serious. He draws blood.

Fortunately, the biting episodes have lessened over time. I suspect they'll never go away completely. He has a long memory and he had a bad beginning. I'm just glad he's got a good thing now.

He even has the "You want some of THIS?" look about him.

He sounds a lot like my parent's cat, Leonardo (aka Heavy D). He used to "sing" at night while playing with his toys. And he liked to be stroked, but when he was done you'd get a warning tail whip and if you didn't stop RIGHT THAT SECOND, you'd get bit.

He does indeed get that look. And you'd better be paying attention. I actually think it isn't so much that he has mellowed as that his people have learned to read him well.

Bogart has the softest fur I've ever felt. He really is irresistible. That fur is like heaven.

He'll put up with some stroking and affection for a while. But suddenly, out of the blue, he'll snap and go into attack mode. He cannot be touched when he's like that and you're just out of luck if he happens to be sitting on your lap. You'll have to wait it out patiently or risk a nasty bite. There is simply nothing you can do.

He's got a thing for paper, too. He likes to shred things. Last month we pulled the bed away from the wall and cleaned underneath. We found an entire magazine shredded to bits under there. Shredding is one of Bogart's passions.

Thanks again for watching them :)

I did not realize Bogie was The Shredder.
