    • "It just doesn't get any better than this!"
    • "Terr-riffic" (sarcastically)
    • "MY BODY MY BODY MY BODYYYYAAAGH!!!"
    • A deep-voiced "Ohhh MOMMA" when he's feeling greedy.

  • Cats Are Snarkers: And how! He gets it from his dad.
  • The Chew Toy: Poor guy can't seem to catch a break.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Just like Dog, he's a Cat named Cat.

  • Happily Adopted
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He can be mean at times, but he does care about his brother.

  • Small Name, Big Ego

    Cat: Fishy...fishy...FISH!!!!! (scarfs down as much sushi as he can)
