Have I ever told you about D’s little tiny cat? She is old, and very, very tiny. She weighs maybe 4 lbs, and she has no tail (well, she does have a “stub”). We don’t know if she was born that way or if she lost part of her tail before she came to live with D. She also has always had a bum paw, but it doesn’t seem to bother her, she just holds it off the ground when she walks; we think she must have gotten in a fight with a bigger animal before finding her way home.
Anyway, she is a really sweet cat, she is a little skittish with people she doesn’t know, but she loves to be petted and snuggled. Last night D and I were sitting on the couch with Smitty, and she happily sat on my lap and purred for the longest time. She had to sit on a towel though, because she loved “kneading” my legs with her razor-sharp claws and my purple lounge pants weren’t enough protection.
Enjoy some gratuitous pictures of the cute kitty:
