Gizmo is the most laid back cat in the world. He doesn't move unless forced and the kids can do anything to him. Honestly - if i stuck a broom handle behind him people would mistake him for a mop. One day we went grocery shopping our Giz was lying on the steps. When we got back 3 hours latter he was in the exact same spot, the exact same position. I could have drawn a chalk out line around him. We love our Gizzy!
