When I was a child, we watched cartoons like Looney Tunes, GI Joe and Gummi Bears... My favorite was Looney Tunes, especially the black and white kitten with the big bulldog, and Bugs Bunny when he'd make the sweet angel face. You know the look, with those watermelon size eyes, dilated pupils, ears tucked back and quivering lip?
My Japanese White-Eye doesn't have the long bunny ears or the quivering lips, but his big liquid eyes surely get the job done. If you look away, you can still feel those begging eyes coaxing you back! Must...look...away...
