Good morning, my liege
Shredder is one of those cats you just know is a “person”. I get that uncanny feeling looking at him sometimes that he knows exactly what’s going on, and that he thinks in full, complete English sentences.
Leaving aside sentimental anthropomorphization, he’s as much a king among cats as he looks. Neighborhood bruiser who defends his territory (and tries to claim that all other-cat-base-are-belong-to-him), expert hunter who brings home the bacon to the back step (OK, shrews), and comes home to his papa and his smol kitty.
Every morning is coffee-cuddle. He comes to my lap, looks up for his head strokes and kisses, sniffs my coffee, and keeps me company.

Just a couple of gentlemen enjoying their morning coffee. ❤️
Off the subject of kitty but could you who pray please put in a word for success in the Texas Senate State Affairs committee hearing on a bill to prohibit mutilating surgery and puberty blocking treatment of minors tomorrow(Thursday). It is the next step in protecting Texas kids and we are up against a pack of evil ideologies that come out of the woodwork and scream bloody murder every time anyone suggests such protections. If you are in the Austin area, come to the Capitol and register your opinion on the kiosk.
