What makes Ace so mean?
Ace is definitely a mean kitty. Though just a kitten he has a really mean streak. He took over as shop cat from Rufus who sadly passed away last spring and was a nice friendly kitty. Ace was hired as a replacement and he seemed to be a nice gentle kitten….
Until he grew up a bit.
He used to rest on his kitty slave’s bosom and purr away. Now he lies in wait for customers to come into the shop. Pet him and he’ll turn around and grab your hand and bite you! Hard! It makes no difference if you are male or female, employee or customer. Pet him and you suffer. He also likes to nibble on his meankitty slave, Christy. She is the one who saved him from the local kill shelter and does he show appreciation? NO! She suffers with the rest of us. He tears up toys in no time flat. I used to take him a toy from time to time, but why waste money? It’s in pieces before you leave the office. He tore up one rather largeish mouse toy in 20 minutes. So, if you need machine work on something, call first and see if Ace is in the office; if he is go directly to the shop.
As Ace grows, we all wonder what he’ll be like. A terror no doubt! He doesn’t do touchy-feely, he does ouchy-bleedy!
