Love makes up for a lot.

Our cat is annoying.

He bothers us while we sleep.
He bothers us while we are awake.
He eats plastic and cashmere.
He bites when over-stimulated.
He throws constantly (though admittedly less often).
He refuses to jump up on the counter for his food, even though he is perfectly capable.

His one saving grace is that our children love him, and he somehow knows enough not to bother them in any way.

My daughter calls him “the big, handsome boy.”

Our son would appear to agree.
