Awww! He looked like a nice kitty. Love the "Coup De Lion" cut on him by the way! I never heard of a cat that liked to be held upside down before, a real rarity!
My cat Elliot used to like me using him as a machine gun...... I would pick him up by holding his two front legs together, and his two back legs in the other hands, and his body would be slung underneath.... I'd make machine guns noises and judder him with recoil. He'd purr his head off before I used his tail to reload and started juddering him again... such a funny cat. He was a real punch bag (and I don't mean that in the hurt sense, I wasn't rough!
) - you could just push him over and he'd fall and submit, letting you do whatever you want with him. He made a good brush on our hard floors sometimes too.....
he liked letting you slide him around like a brush and would just purr the more you did it. It's true, they're raritys cats like that. I've never found one since that let me handle him that way, but then, when Elliot was born, he was in a litter of kittens from a cat we owned, and the day he opened his eyes, his mum was out of the basket and I just happened to be stood there. He followed me everywhere that cat. I miss him desperately
Still, I just feel fortunate to have had an animal friend like him.... they change you, animals with personalities so strong.
Munchkin looks like one of those cats too....
