Boris Ulysses Rice

What is the breed of your pet?
Cat

How was your pet’s name chosen?
When he showed up on our doorstep 2.5 years ago, he had this kind of wonky eye and somewhat droopy lower lip. He reminded me of a Russian mobster. Boris just seemed to fit. The middle name…I just thought it would be hilarious to have a cat with a middle name of Ulysses.

What is a fun or quirky fact about your pup?
Despite his “tough” exterior, he’s so loving. He sleeps in the nook of my arm every night, and wraps his paws around my arm. And he drools…A LOT.

Do you have a favorite walking route, etc.? What is it and why?
He’s indoor/outdoor (he was a neighborhood stray for about 2 years). He likes to sit in our Adirondack chairs in the backyard a lot.

Does your pet have a special talent? If so, what is it?
Mole assassin. He’s killed 4 and will sit on top of a mole mound for hours if he senses movement.

If your pet was a famous human, who would they be?
Barack Obama. 1. He’s cool as hell. 2. He’s persistent- he doesn’t give up. 3. He’s fun, but never forget, he’s the president and he can have you murdered in your sleep.
