Mr. Virtue is a frequent visitor at the Duck Feeder. He was sighted many times before he was named on March 10th, but his appearance on that day was what made him stand out. He was seen sadly waiting in front of the empty feeder for 5 minutes, before leaving right after someone fed him. He waited very patiently, giving him his name (due to the phrase "patience is a virtue".) His name also comes from the black spot on his back that resembles a heart.

As of around July, Mr. Virtue has developed a tooth condition which makes it painful for him to eat. Sometimes, he may yowl in pain and quickly run away while eating. The Caretaker is aware of his condition.

Behavior

Mr. Virtue may be patient in retrieving food, but not so much with other cats. He is very wary of them and has attacked them on occasion. He seems friendly with humans, as when the caretaker came around he happily approached and was given food by them.

He likes to watch others eat, be it cats, ducks, chickens, dogs, and even humans, not interested in the food but instead just keeping a watchful eye.

Appearance

Mr. Virtue can be seen quite often at the Duck Feeder, usually waiting in front of the feeder for kibble. Sometimes he looks quite sad while he's waiting. He is white, with black spots near his rear and one on his head. He has one big, black spot on his butt resembling a heart.
