Meet Chase, a three-year-old rescue cat that enjoys performing. He actually excels at drama, especially if it makes him the center of attention rather than his sisters Skye and Millie.
Chase’s mother just attempted to brush him, like she does every day, and his response was all that honorable performers strive for (and more).

If Chase senses that something is wrong, he will immediately hug his mom for comfort. In fact, Chase will do anything to get a hug from Mom — even if he’s not really that upset or scared.

As the smallest kitten in the litter, Chase is used to getting his own way, including sleeping alone and being held like a baby. Being the center of attention is his favorite thing in the world — but Fifi doesn’t mind.
