“Snowbébé, you've probably forgotten by now, but... Once, you looked at my body—my hairless body—and said it was pretty. So you see, your words made me so very happy. I always thought I was unattractive...”
Taiyo Matsumoto, Cats of the Louvre

“That's right, Snowbébé. This world—it's cold and smelly.”
Taiyo Matsumoto, Cats of the Louvre
