Believe it or not I know people that are scared of that cat. Why? He's not mean, ferocious, dangerous or any of that (so long as his humans are around). They're merely scared of him because of his size.
I think Dante or Rumbles needs to come visit to show these wimps what a REAL big kitty is.
I will give a pass to those who didn't grow up with anything bigger than a bird LOL.
