"Shadow" is a black cat and is usually whining about something. He is nervous around strangers and spends cold nights under the PK building. He loves his food bowl and is hoping the hamster will escape into the courtyard one day.

Description from Wikipedia

The domestic cat (Felis catus or Felis silvestris catus) is a small, usually furry, domesticated, and carnivorous mammal. It is often called the housecat when kept as an indoor pet, or simply the cat when there is no need to distinguish it from other felids and felines. Cats are often valued by humans for companionship and their ability to hunt vermin and household pests.
