Cat Profile: Francisco
I thought I’d start a new series of posts here to give this blog a little life. I’m going to profile some of our cats with the most colorful personalities. First, meet Francisco!
- Name: Francisco
- Breed: Long-haired Tortoiseshell
- Favorite Hangout: Grizzly Peak across from Taste Pilot’s Grill at DCA
- Hobbies: Sleeping, Hiking, Gardening
- Favorite Ride: Soarin’ Over California
- Interesting Fact: Dreams of piloting his own glider aircraft
If you have never seen a Disneyland Cat at the parks before, it probably means you’re not looking hard enough. We are everywhere. But if you need a little help finding your first kitty, Francisco is your best bet. He spends almost every day in the same place: the lower hills of Grizzly Peak right across from Taste Pilot’s Grill. He loves this area because he can blend in with the surrounding colors but can also keep an eye on his favorite attraction, Soarin’ Over California. An aviator at heart, Francisco is content to rough it in the deserts of Condor Flats with the hopes that he will one day have learned enough about flying to pilot a plane, even for a short flight. He pays keen attention to every performance of Minnie’s Fly Girls Charter Airline to perfect his knowledge of aviation lingo. Several times a day, he’ll sneak into Soarin’ and ride to his heart’s content in an under-seat compartment.
Francisco knows the old wives tale that Tortoiseshell Cats (Torties) are supposed to be lucky, so he loves pretending to hide in plain sight and getting spotted by passing guests. He can bring you luck too, but don’t try to pet him or you may find your luck has run out.Share
