Sentence: His name was Anfernee- loveable boob! Not really more than a fuzzy food tube. Out on a ledge, too fat to turn round… He sat there and cried, and hoped to be found. Chewed his way into a couple food sacks- Now he’s dozing away like a real PETULAX!

Please have all pets tutored and sprayed. Although some insist that they have the capacity to love, felinisaurs have very little use as "work animals".
