What’s something special about your pet’s personality?

He is our failed foster and FIV+ kitty, and is the worst hunter ever. He will wiggle his butt for 10 minutes waiting to pounce on a toy mouse, then run away in fear after his pounce missed the toy. And then he hides under the bed for another 10 minutes. We named him Elvis because Elvis in Chinese means “Cat King.” He is our scaredy cat king and we love him.
