percy (for the love of animals series)

Percy is my parent’s cat. Rescued from a flood (as a tiny kitten) by my mother, he has lived many of his “nine lives” very fully. He is as independent as he looks (except for his daily cuddle time with dad, and dad alone!) His presence in the farmhouse is a great source of companionship to my parents. Feared by most of the grandkids, however, (many of which are now adults), he has set his boundaries and made his place known in the family. Percy, like many cats, makes no bones about anything. What you see is what you get! :) Aren’t his eyes exquisite.
