Recent Adorableness: Toffeepot


Is he not glorious — handsome, wise, dapper, dignified? He's always been the scientist* among our five cats, risking his life to perform experiments to discover what happens when a cat jumps up on a hot stove or swallows a series of Christmas light bulbs or various types of string. 

For this reason, I have taken to calling him Wallace Clement Sabine, after the hard-working and self-effacing physicist who founded the science of acoustic engineering at Harvard at the turn of the 20th century — while living in our house. 

I'm pretty sure Toffee likes this. Just look at him.



* Possum is artsy and literary, obviously. Lion is a diplomat, winning everyone's heart. Harris is an engineer — "What happens if I knock this on the floor, or this, or this?" And poor Wendy just lives perpetually in Fear of Death.
