Ferdinand starts off shy, but once he gets to know you turns into a fuzzy purring ball of affection. With Ferdinand about you can expect to have your hand nudged with a kitty nose if you stop petting him too soon; and he'll then express his thanks for the petting by holding your hand between his paws while he licks your fingers. If you happen to be sitting down or standing still and Ferdinand is next to you, he'll sit up on his haunches like a little meerkat and balance his paws against your leg, looking up hopefully. And not only is this spotted boy affectionate, he's helpful too! Ferdinand will let you know when it's bedtime by heading up to the bed to help warm it up for you, and then cuddling with you as you fall asleep.
