Meows You Can Use: Citizen Correspondent to Tell Cat Tales
"He tends to drink my water," Señor tells PEOPLEPets.com. "But I need my water as well, so the thing that I ended up having to do is put a lid on my water glass and set out another little water thing for him."
Soon, Señor won't just be telling his cat stories – as the newly-annointed, first-ever Purina Cat Chow correspondent, he'll be reporting on the unique relationships people share with their cats from all across the country.
Señor, who serves as an assistant director for an Off-Broadway production of Rent, and Buster have cultivated a closeness in their New York City apartment.
"We play a lot. We're mischievous," he says. "I'm very involved and engaged in my relationship with him."
That relationship is what helped Señor land the correspondent gig, for which he was selected out of nearly 3,000 applicants. The year-long position will see him travel the country reporting on cat-related topics for catchow.com and Purina Cat Chow's Facebook and Flickr accounts, where Señor hopes to focus on "a lot that has to do with people's relationships with their cats."
Buster – who earned his name after spending the ride home from the breeder's trying to bust out of his cage – leaped into the spotlight along with Señor, but not before taking over his Greenwich Village neighborhood.
"He's become the community cat," Señor says. "All my friends take care of him. They come over and take naps with him. He bullies his way into your life. 'I'm going to sit on your lap and you're going to like it. You're going to love me.' That kind of bully."
