Louis the cat


What you call them every day other than their name: Louie Bear when he's being a good boy and Lucifer when he's not!
A favorite quirk in their behavior: Louis loves going out on the porch in the morning, but only when someone else goes out with him. If no one takes him up on his porch plans, he'll just start meowing until someone comes out or we let him back in.
Favorite sleeping spot: He loves sleeping on the top of the sofa, in particular on the left hand side. I leave a blanket on that spot for him in the winter.
Can they do a trick? He can actually fetch! He's so good and talented!
