This is my cat, Miles. Miles loves to cuddle, purr, eat and relax. He is a very chill cat but he does not like to be messed with! He also thinks he's playing when he starts to bite me.

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.
