He's one of those cats that doesn't like to be held or touched. I was afraid of how he would react to children because he has a nasty streak. But I'm happy to say.....four kids and two dogs later, he has learned to adjust. He still won't let me hold or pet him for more than a few seconds, but he sleeps curled up next to me every night.
This picture always cracked me up because he was wedged in next to my fish tank and looks like he is smiling for the camera! Cheeeeeeez!
And here is a more recent picture of "Kitty".
