Toulouse Is Bishus (Director’s Cut)

My ginger bebe Toulouse is a rescue kitten.  Snatched to safety in the nick of time from underneath an 18-wheeler.My cousin was behind the big rig at a busy intersection during the red light.  Just a 4 week old bit of orange fluff, it became very obvious he had a personality extraordinaire.  In this, his first appearance on video, he shows just how vicious (bishus) he can be.  Yes, Toulouse has a bit of a lisp.  We are working on that.
