I have a handsome black DLH kitty cat boy named Oscar.
His favorite hobbies include wrestling with our 40lbs dog, and eating chunky wet cat food
(never the pâté kind, he hates pâté wet food).
We started off fostering him when he was a 3 week old baby
(volunteering with an animal organization that fosters and adopts out cats and dogs).
He was separated from his mother far too soon. We bottle fed him and his tabby colored brother
until they were fully weaned. We got his brother adopted out,
but just couldn't give Oscar himself up, as he fit into our home like a glove.
Unfortunately, he seems not to be unaware that he needs to regularly groom himself,
so he has a rather dirty back end. I think kittens learn about grooming from their mothers, among other things.
After attempting to wash him up ourselves,
(and having my poor mother get the business end of his slashing claws in her hand and wrist)
we've decided to look for a local pet grooming service that does cats.
Anyways, here's Oscar, the handsome devil.
(ETA: Why is this thread all stretched out and weird looking?
It makes it hard to read the longer posts.)
