Actually, looks like what any tabby looks like when they're wet. I'll bet he looks like any other domestic tabby when he's dry.

Sure, just like Agent Orange is really my president.

No, someone did not mistake a mountain lion for a lost cat

(I do have an orange cat, fwiw, shown somewhere in these 64 pages.)

So where was Fritz while this was going on?

My money has him up in the rafters preparing to pounce upon that inviting fur covered combination pillow/scratching post.

You're probably close. Interesting (and funny) thing is that, judging by their behavior, Felix seems to perceive Drinka as someone to play with, Fritz treats her more like something to play with:
