No, not Cowboy BeeBop.
Rather, this. The cat you are seeing in this creature is a wild/stray who we’ve fed over the ages, and who I’ve gradually… befriended isn’t the right word, but we get along… and she does like her skritches…. in spite of herself. Meet BeeBop.
Yes, this IS a stray cat… and no, she’s not trying to escape in the picture, but rather she’s pillowing furiously.
She’s got the potential to be an Official Mitchell Cat. In this spectacularly unflattering picture, the hyper-relaxed look on my face is only partially for kitty’s sake…. she’s got the “put you to sleep” vibe pretty down. (Requirement #3 for Official Mitchell Cat-dom).
