Hey, I have a Selkirk Rex. He's a cameo red, and very curly. They're called "the cat in sheep's clothing". I can't post a pic; I don't have a digital camera. But he's gorgeous! (Of course, I'm not at all biased. )

I've posted these before, but I'll post them again.

Here's my lil' Gordon. He's the one that sighs and burps and snores like an old man:


This pic was taken a few years ago. He's a pound or two fatter now.


And this is lil' Boris who is quite a pain in the ass. But she's cute.



Here they both are:


Boris is actually a normal sized cat at about 9.5 lbs. Gordon is just a giant moose of a cat. He was at 18.5 lbs 2 years ago, I'm sure he's more than that now.

I want to ask you a dumb question. Can you feel the end of your cat's tail and see if he has a kink in the end, about an inch from the tip? Siamese apparently have one.

We have a Himalayan and she has Siamese, as all her breed does. She's awesome. Her name is Zoe. I'll dig around for some pics later. And Abby too, the skank Chinchilla.

My cat Willis has a kink at the end of his tail. He's a tabby though.

How weird! Must be many breeds and moggys as well with the kink. I've heard a story that it was linked to the ancient Egyptians who used the cats tails to put their jewellry and rings on, and would snap the tail so the rings didn't slide off. But that sounds like a load of bull and kind of evolution defying.
But anyway. We had a big old fat cat called Matty who weighed about um...10 kilos in his prime . We had him put down aged 18. He was a huge cat. He just kept on living, too. Never sick until old age woes caught him in the end. He had a kink as well.

My Loki has a tiny kink at the very end of his tail. It's only about the last 1/8 inch.

My lil' Gordy cat has a kink as well. It's about the last inch of the tip. It's really kind of more like a hook.

Samnang has a kink as well. I'd never noticed it before? He scared me the other day! He came inside (from our screened in back porch) and he was growling and whining. Then he suddenly kept jumping high in the air and slapping at his face, then he started drooling really bad. He managed to chew up and swallow whatever he had, I think he got hold of a wasp or some other stinging insect.

This thread (AKA "Larry's Worst Nightmare") is giving me a serious case of the woodgie coos. You all have such adorable fur babies! And seeing them really makes me miss my sweet but sassy tabby, Dickens. I really need to adopt a new cat.
