Romeo is my huge gray and white tuxedo cat. Very stocky and has stomach flab. He is 18 pounds and loves to eat! I got him at age 4 months, and he had been returned to the shelter by the first adoptees. I think it may be that he was a biter, but at 4 months it would have been hard to tell. But Romeo is not a lap cat, does not like to be picked up and is not a cuddler. He purrs loud and clear on being petted, but leave him on the ground. A mixed breed, he looks to have some british shorthair in him, and that is how they are...very grounded breed. He is almost 8 now and I have my other cat who is a cuddler, so the two together is all I need. Romeo is very handsome as you will see in the picture.He was a biter though up until the last couple years when I got the other cat and started leaving him alone more. He gets overstimulated with too much attention and petting and would just bite so quick before you even knew it was coming...draw blood too. good thing he is more mellow now and I have another cat too.
