We surprise no one when we say Frankie is a cuddler. He snuggles for hours and never wants it to end. And he loves being brushed, though he has a slight quirk. He wants his chest and belly brushed. Nowhere else. He doesn’t mind the rest, but he prefers—strongly—the chest and belly. Thus, brushing sessions always look like this as Hu-Dad attempts to negotiate.

Hu-Dad has a challenge for all the humans out there. Imagine calling Typhoon and advising him it’s time to come inside. Then imagine that the look in today’s photo is the entire response.
