It's been a while since my last Templeton-themed post, so I thought it was about time that I devoted some space on my blog to him.
My parents love him. Even my dad feels the need to cuddle with him at least once a day, which is unusual for a man who is normally immune to feline charms.
And here he is posing with one of his biggest fans. Not surprisingly, my mother adores Templeton. We've even had some somewhat serious conversations about who would have custody of him if I was to move out. I love the expression on his face in this picture... or maybe it's his lack of expression.
He hasn't shown himself to be a very affectionate cat, but there's just something about him that fills all who see him with an overwhelming urge to pick him up. My parents and I are hoping that as the weather gets cooler, he might start sitting with us for warmth... but since he has such a thick coat, I'm not sure if that kind of mutualistic relationship would really be beneficial for him.
