Here are the deets on Itchy, submitted by VIA reader GKL!

Name: Itchy

Breed/Colouring: Itchy has silky black fur with a little flourish of white on her neck.

Hood:  West End 

Habits: Itchy proves that cats are creatures of habit and strictly follows her everyday routine: playing in the wee hours of the morning, waking up her human at 6am with head nuzzles and deep purring, playing with her person before she goes to work, watching the birds and the world on the windowsill, napping, bugging her person to play with her as soon as she comes home, asking for belly rubs while her humans relax on the couch while watching TV, napping. Repeat every day, forever. 

Hangouts: The window (where she spies on crows) and the bookshelf in the bedroom (where she can watch people sleep.) She also loves napping and chilling on a footstool which doubles as her scratching post.

Favorite Things: Her toy wand, a coke zero box, a toilet paper tube, her dollarstore rollback toy mouse and lots of belly rubs!

Other Info:  Itchy was adopted from VOKRA when she was 11 months old and was originally called Mimi. Her name was changed to Marquise de Meow soon after but responds most to her nickname “Itchy”. Three adjectives that completely describe Itchy are funny, curious, and affectionate.
