I want you to meet my friend, Snakie. I've had him for about 10 years. He sometimes gets very dirty so I have to clean him.
He doesn't do or say much but I love him. He makes me feel good when I get to play with him because he is full of catnip.
If my big-cats forget to put Snakie away, I've been know to clean him all day. When that happens, Snakie gets covered in cat spit and no-one wants to touch him.
If you come over, remember to ask my permission to touch Snakie or I will swat you with my paws.
