(Find information on how to submit your own pet's profile at the bottom of this profile. Read more about this new series on Dal News.)

Name: Officially named “Camden” after the Reverend Camden Farebrother in Middlemarch, because he reminded me of a 19th century curate when we first got him.

Nickname: The Dude. It’s not a Big Lebowski reference, actually, but just because he’s sooooo chill.

Species/breed: Definitely pussycat, as in “he’s just an ol’ pussycat."

Age: 12

Fave food: Sardines, or anything in a cereal bowl that he can put his paw in and smear all over the place.

Special tricks: Loudest purr, a total inability to recognize mice as prey, and a talent for eliciting belly rubs.

Best quality: Most affectionate cat of all time.

Social media platform or handle, if available:  The Dude prioritizes sleep over social media, but he’d love for you to read this article as he’s FIV+ and proud.
