What is your pet’s name? Captain Francis Jasper Bandit, or just Bandit

What is the breed of your pet? American Shorthair

How was your pet’s name chosen? We adopted him from a shelter, and his original name was “Francis”. I had a lot of other name suggestions such as “Captain” from my brother and “Jasper” from my best friend. In the end, “Bandit” became his typical name because when we first met him, he had these weird yellow rings around his eyes that made it look like a mask.

Does your pet have a favorite walking route? What is it and why? Bandit loves to run up the stairs and and into my bedroom. He knows when I start heading for the steps after coming home from a long day that it’s time to relax and get some love from his momma.

What’s the most embarrassing thing your pet has ever done? Bandit was neutered as a kitten and had to wear one of those silly cones. He would bump into everyrhing and had the hardest time functioning. One evening, I find him in the laundry room with poop all ove the cone! How or why it was there is still a mystery 8 years later.

Does your pet have a pet peeve? NEVER scratch his “tickle spot”. Its a space located at the base of his tail and he will bat at you if you give it a scratch.

If your pet could answer any question, but just one, what would you ask? I would ask him why he’s so picky. He would probably respond with “I learned it from watching you, mom!”
