That is Tolstoy, a.k.a., Big Red, who conveys unto us today the reason that earlier civilizations worshipped your common-garden house kitty. Look at those eyes. Tolstoy, with the blood of Africa flowing through his veins (trans: he’s mostly Abyssinian) is the most unique and fabulous-looking feline I’ve ever seen, a great big beautiful cat with haunting eyes and a curiously piercing stare. Have a look for yourself. Marie took the Mystery Cat picture where he looks like a feline Kilroy; earlier today I photographed the cat dozing on the windowsill in the kitchen. Awesome animal!
