(Pause) He is sitting sideways towards the binding but has turned his head so that he is looking straight at us. (Pause) Did you stroke his textured fur? (Pause) He is a baby, about six months old. Have you ever stroked a cat? Our cub is about the same size and just as cuddly. Find the tufts of fur on top of his head. (Pause) Then his two round, fluffy ears. (Pause) Can you find his tiny little eyes? They are full of mischief. (Pause) And what about his huge flat nose? It is the colour of strawberry pink ice cream. (
