My cat Avalon has become quite popular since his appearance in the film adaptation of my book The Strangers Outside. After being a movie star, he has now also a weekly cat cartoon at http://avalon-lion.blogspot.com/. His fun, lighthearted stories about life as a cat will delight readers young and old. "Garfield was a phenomenon in the seventies and eighties," Avalon says. "I believe cat lovers are ready for the feline star of the new millennium and that's me."
*Name: He was named after the Mamoru Oshii movie Avalon; close friends and family members may also call him Lion
*Breed: He believes he's a Turkish Van, but there's no proof of that whatsoever
*Favorite food: Almo Nature, chicken
*Favorite movies: Avalon, The Strangers Outside, The Cat From Outer Space, Nekonade, The Uncanny, Uninvited, The Cat Returns
*Particularities: Roars like a lion after using his litter box, shows absolutely no signs of independent behaviour, knows which DVD boxes are the most expensive ones when it comes to getting attention, has two distinct personalities (turns to his Infernicus-mode around 5 o'clock in the morning)
