THAT THING WITH EIGHT ARMS

The newest member of the household will undoubtedly be pleased that there is a "Cephalopod Appreciation Society" on the interwebs, sharing cephalopodic joy and videos with its members.

A full armload.
The newest resident. Otto. Otto Da Fe.

As you would expect, he likes hugs. You will also kindly note that he is trying to blend in, with colouration that approximated the hues of the chair upon which he sits. Octopodal Americans have chromatophores (colour-changing cells) just below the dermis, which allows them to take on the appearance of their back ground or reflect their mood and mental state appropriately. Consequently they pay scant attention to the dictates of fashion, and if female tend to eschew eye shadow and other make-up. Because it does not reflect the real "them".
Or the "them" they wish to be at that moment.

Sometimes we don't know where he is.
