I rescued him as a scrawny, abandoned farm kitten and he grew into a huge black male. He taught himself to defecate in the toilet. When I would sit in my chair to eat he would jump up on the back and walk down the arm toward my food. What was hilarious is that he would be looking away from my plate as he came down the arm. Guess he thought that I wouldn't figure out what he really was up to. LOL He passed away quite a number of years ago.
