Though by now a thoroughly domesticated cat, Dave remains an outdoorscat by nature. Even though his current life presents few opportunities, he still finds ways to keep his clawing skills sharp. Below you can see him tearing up a very conveniently shaped furniture-type object.

Sometimes a cat simply wants to be a cat and not have to worry about anything else. In times like these, it should not be surprising if a cat makes a face such as this in response to an approaching body in motion. This is a face that says, "What now?"

One of the best times in the day to take a nap is the afternoon. By then, many hours have past since the regretful arrival of the morn, and yet there are also many hours to go before bedtime.
Other good times for naps are the late morning, high noon, and the early evening.

Even in the summer, when the windows come between Dave and the great outdoors, Dave spends time peering outside from his perch. During this time, when the weather is vomitous, he sits and ponders how grateful he is to no longer be on the mean streets of Iowa, where temperatures can often exceed 100 degrees.

No stranger to making a mess, here you can see Dave digging through his basket of toys, trying to find the best one. He tends to play with a certain toy for a week or so, then display ambivalence towards it. But today he had a hankering for a toy he used to play with, so he was searching for it.

It is well-known that the average cat does not approach Dave's greatness when it comes to napping, or to investigations. But there is another area of life where Dave surpasses the great majority of other felines - robustness.
This provides Dave with certain advantages. For example, Dave wrestling skills are top-notch. However, Dave's robustness also presents certain disadvantages. Anyone familiar with the ways of cats understands that cats enjoy enclosed spaces. Dave's colleague Jack is known for his fondness of boxes. While Dave is a fearless cat who enjoys the open air, he also enjoys napping in a defined space. Below, you can see that Dave has squeezed himself into a space designed for a less robust cat. And he does so quite successfully.
