Lou works when he feels like it, sleeps all day long,and parties all
night! He is a very nocturnal beast. Lou doesn't run, trot,
gallop, or RUSH to do anything at all. If you call him over to get
him a pat on the head, he may or may not acknowledge your existence.
It may completely depend on how desperate he might be at that moment
in time for a diversion in his day, or simply how far away you are
from his current spot on the barn floor. He may look at you, as if
too say, “You want ME to come over THERE? Are you kidding me?”
Unless you are a mouse or other vermin, he just can't be bothered.

groceries from the truck. Then he is quick to coil in between your
legs, rubbing up against you, suddenly needing affection.
a little devilish, but great at catching mice! You've got to admire a
man that is good at his job, even if he is a bit eccentric.
