Unique traits: Hmmm. Unique traits? Let's see. Throwing 50 pound bales of hay? No. Lots of people can do that. Giving medicine to a cat? Maybe. Not many can do that without gloves and a towel in which to contain the cat. Haven't bathed one, though. I was going to say a penchant for nonsense, but then too many of my theatre friends have the same issue, so that is not very unique.
