Here's my cat 'Chip'. I call him Chip the Cat. Chip is 15 years old and I got him from a relatives farm in Illinois. He's extremely intelligent. He doesn't use a litter box and will just meow at you to let him outside. One oddity about him is that he loves to watch James Bond movies. He will sit and watch an entire Bond flick and then leave when the movie is over.
He's quite a badass, he is declawed but still hunts critters and leaves them on the front porch. The other day he got into a fight with another cat in the front yard. The skirmish drifted away from our residence and I was concerned about him. Ten minutes later he was strutting with a very confident gait toward the door.
Unlike a lot of other cats I've met, Chip isn't shy and loves meeting new people. He's really a kind hearted soul who just wants to be liked. He's getting up there in age but I think he's going to be around for a while. I can't really imagine him not being around. That'll be a sad day.
