(As a Humane Society volunteer, I always like to test the relative softness of all the cats. Right now, the champion softie seems to be Thomas, a long-haired marmalade kitty. Congrats, Thomas!)

We are now doing IMPORTANT Cat Softness Testing chez moi. The Timid Tweed Tabby seems to be winning, though it helps that she looks like a soft cat.

Hehe. Science needs to establish how to quantify a cat's softness, with Brillo Pad being one extreme and Heavenly Bliss the other.
