Answer #13

There is a white tomcat living in my house. (We got him from an animal shelter and he decided to stay with us and annex the place. He calls me “tin can opener” and he occasionally allows me to sit on his sofa.)

He always rubs against people who wear black pants. Ha also sleeps on dark pillows only. So he must be doing it on purpose, in order to leave white cat hair on our dark clothes.
