Maybe I'm strange, but I have always been drawn to the nose fur on cats. I think it may be the fact that I find it so odd that they have fur on the tops of their noses.

The enchantment of pussycat noses extends to all cats for me. Every time I see a big cat I have a strong desire to pat its nose. It was a wonderful moment when I actually could, while holding a lion cub at Lion Country Safari.

A few years ago, I found that I was not alone in my fixation. My secretary, Mary, had the same feeling about dog noses. I could always tell she had arrived in the morning when Handsome appeared wearing fresh lipstick prints on his nose fur.
