I like sleeping, waking someone up with my choked meow, and being pampered like there’s no tomorrow. we’ll see each other often on these screens, now I’ll meow in the face of my brother Legolas and my sister Bidet regardless of their perplexity…”.

(…) Mattia also had a special feature: two eyes of different colors and one of these eyes blinded him… “.
