Scratch is a cat. He is frequently crabby. That's why his name's Scratch. He can also be extremely insecure. As you read, you might notice he is a magical mixture of arrogance and low self esteem. But don't worry, he's also an eternal optimist. He's the office cat at DuPage County Animal Care and Control. He also wears hats. And he can type, oh, yes he can.
