Mirror Mirror on the Wall...

Hey! Rolz here! Since this magnificent image is of ME, who better to talk about it than myself?! This guy, Fernand Mery, sure knew his stuff. Cats and lions, yeah, we kinda go together and I think my handsome and regal profile really shows off my resemblance to the King of the Jungle. If I could read, I’d tell you more about this brilliant guy. Actually, that’s not true. I’m quite a lazy boy by nature and I have no aspirations to learn how to read whatsoever. Feed me, touch me occasionally, admire me always, and let me nap in peace. The human can tell you about this guy if she wants to enlighten you with her ability to grab information from Wikipedia.

Okay, Deb here! Since Rolz has made his point clear, here is just a bit about Fernand Mery. Fernand Mery (1897 – 1983) was a world renowned veterinarian, author, and animal advocate from France. He wrote many books about pets, including these on cats – “The Life, History and Magic of the Cat,” “The Cat,” and “Her Majesty the Cat.” He helped to pass many laws in France for the better treatment of animals and founded several organizations such as The National Council for Animal Protection.  (Wikipedia)

    Rolz you are regal. Male lions actually do sound a lot like you with your carefree way of life. We think you’re more handsome than a lion though! And yes, we vote for you and your other siblings every day…

    Some of us house panthers are still concerned about all those odd markings you have, but our mom says you are beautiful, and Kelly has spots and she is beautiful, so we guess she’s right!
