Favourite quote: “Where’s the food?”

Pastimes: “I love to sleep, and I could play with my toys and roll them around on the floor all day long. I also love to lick and paw people, getting them to focus all of their attention on me. Also, don’t be surprised or scared if I decide to lean on you – I just love having somewhere to rest my head.”

Most ambitious goal: “To get everyone in the office to pet and hug me! I expect a LOT of attention – what can I say?!”

What does the future look like? “To be honest, I would love to pursue a career in acting one day. Modelling would be fun, I suppose… my family always says I’m really photogenic, but I’m too modest to agree!”

Tell us a little more about yourself: “I am a natural-born hunter, blessed with a keen and observant nose and an undeniable love for chasing birds and small rodents. People tell me I run like a horse, but I don’t notice anything strange about the way I run! Other qualities? I guess I am energetic, gentle, super-affectionate and very sensitive. Oh yeah, I love peanut butter… a lot. So, if you see me around the office, don’t hesitate to sneak me a spoonful or two!”

Philosophy: “Never stop loving”
