Having spent a year wearing suction cups at Sam’s insistence, Furrari declared that they sucked worse than not wearing them. Every cat, large or small, wants to be thought of as graceful and elegant, and she had become a laughingstock. Pride matters more to a cat than success. So she now takes pride in her magnificent coloration and competes fairly. As a result, she has become the face of Kitten D’Or, and can afford to lose gracefully on the few occasions she gets beaten.
