Your cat loves interacting with humans and other cats. He never meets a stranger and would leave any party with a dozen or more new friends.
Your cat would attend any gathering with one thing on his mind: food. Frequently found near the snack table, this kitty wouldn’t be shy about wrapping pawfuls of treats in napkins to bring home with him.
Your kitty is shy and avoids situations where there may be new people or animals. He’d spend the entire party under the coffee table, hoping someone would open the front door so he could make a break for it.
Your cat is a beast when it comes to parties. Always up for a good time and never short on catnip and silly party gags, he can whoop it up for several hours at a time. And then he needs to nap because, well, he’s a cat.
