About Hal: My name is Hal. I am five years old. On October 31, 2009, my family was lucky enough to have me join them as a member. I am named Hal because of Halloween (my favorite day of the year… Hal-o-ween, get it?). Here’s my claim to fame: there are a lot of non-cat people who like me and think I am cool. My moms’ contractor says he does not like cats, but he is now thinking about getting a cat because he likes me so much. I try to be humble, but let’s face it, it’s hard. Sometimes people say I am like a “dog-cat” since I like riding in cars, playing fetch, getting belly rubs, greeting my moms at the door when they come home, and eating anything I can get my paws on. Plus, I am really very sweet and I love to give kisses, just like a dog. Here is one thing I do really well: supervise. Whether it is telling contractors how to do a job, telling my moms how to cook or make a bed, I have a gift for management. While I like playing different games, hide-and-seek (also known as “Where’s Mr. Hal?”) is my favorite. I am very good at it. In fact, here’s a video of me in action in “Where’s Mr Hal.”
I suspect this video very well may lead to a Hollywood contract for me. Did I mention how good I am at opening doors? I could talk about myself all day, but I need to find a box and take a nap now.
