Joyce is a Siamese cat featured in Ruthless Bunny's Bed and Breakfast Man. Joyce is based upon a cat owned by a former roommate. Siamese are noted for their chattiness and intelligence. Joyce, the real cat, used to enjoy sitting in laundry baskets, eating tuna while standing on the dining room table and performing her "dead kitty" trick. Joyce the character is similar, and a focal point in the story, just as Siamese cats are focal points in their owner's lives. Joyce is the reason that Quinn buys the house that Trent and Daria live in. Ostensibly the reason Trent and Daria are living in Quinn's house is to take care of Joyce.
