When they brought him out, he was pretty docile, but they told us to watch our hands because he might try to bite us. Here he is during our visit.
We left with all our fingers and he didn't even attempt to fight with us. And there were 4 of us all up in his face and he took it like a champ!!!
And as a friend said, soon we will have a band of pirate cats sailing the living room seas, pillaging Ella.
