Named Romeo Because He is a Lover Boy, But Very High Maintenance

Romeo is a truly magnificent cat and I would never trade him for anything even though he is high maintenance and wants attention most of the time.

He honestly, is a lot like a dog, besides sometimes where he can completely avoid people. (But aren't all cats like that? haha)

Either way, he is a lot like a dog because...
1. I can rub him on the tummy for an extended amount of time without getting my face clawed off
2. He fetches toys that I throw
3. He comes to me roughly 80% when I call his name (which is pretty darn good)

On top of that he is just the best cat that I have ever had, and arguably one of the best animals I have owned because of how sweet and playful he is.
He loves to cuddle and lay on people, and curl up next to you.
Whenever I come home he runs to me and practically jumps on me, and rubs up against me. (Now he could want food, but he does this all of the time.)

But the downside of him is that he is VERY vocal when he wants attention. (It's like he is talking to me.)
And on top of that he is high maintenance, meaning he wants to be stroked a lot, and fed the right food (long story) and taken care of all of the time. He loves to be pampered.

Either way, I wouldn't trade him for the world. :)
Not to mention, he always smells like flowers most of the time. Idk how... haha
