This is the sister-in-law’s jungle cat Sugarfoot. He actually is the “sweetest” of her batch. Still, no petting. When SIL and her husband moved from Arizona to Chicago, they had problems finding a vet who would do home visits. The cats are big and don’t do well in cages. You also don’t want to be hauling them through the hallways and foyers of Chicago condo buildings.
The Iowan says it is spooky to spend the night there. You have to lock the bedroom doors because one of the cats can twist open the doorknob. Then, when you leave the room at night, “their glowing eyes follow you. Like they’re looking at their midnight snack.”
