bwahahahahah i love this! i mean really, even from the thumb i literally lol'd. i had a long hair black cat named leonard (i am suck a DORK it was leonard after leonard nimoy!)when i was a kid and i can totally picture him looking like this. he looked kind of like this when he was wet. i remember a photo of him sitting on top of the fridge like a meatloaf with his two front paws hanging over the front. he was black with white paws. we brushed him all the time but his fur still got super tangled, like above painted kitty) and we had to cut knots out of his fur. when my parents split up they gave him to one of my high school friends's dads. yeah, she had two dads and now her son has two moms. they loved leonard so much! one time they told me they were hot for my dad! and that was over 20 years ago! my dad was just like wtf??? i'm glad he was open minded! oops, long long trip down memory lane!
