So sweet! You might consider getting the fur on his back end trimmed or a hygiene shave. Is he old?

The forum looks fine to me, but I've had times when it freaks out.

Well, he is only a year old, so it might be that he never learned to groom properly, with no other cat to pick it up from.

Yeah, we are going to look around and see about having his behind shaved, or at least washed.

Oh okay. Poor thing, but I'm glad he has a loving furever home now!

We had a long haired white dog for 10 yrs (she died from heart disease a few yrs ago) and we had to keep her back end trimmed. I can't imagine animals in the wild. Blech!

(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?

He's CUTE and he reminds me of my black cat from many years ago!

Love the pictures of the cats and dogs. Our springer, Dougal died several years ago but we haven't gotten another dog. Definitely need to find one with a sense of humor in my house.

Here are my boys, Brutus is a lab/ a shar-pei mix (black), and Tensai is a Puggle (beagle/ pug). Here, Tensai doesn't care that I'm trying to knit, he just brought me his toy. Brutus just wants loved on.

Ah, a fellow puggle owner. I have a female puggle named Annabelle (Annie for short) that is just adorable!!!




Her favorite things include taking as many naps as possible throughout the day (and snoring loudly while doing so), and eating. She'll wake up from being in a deep sleep and look at you with great interest if the words "Are you hungry?" are merely uttered.

She also begs with the biggest puppy dog eyes you've ever seen. She is really good at begging, and also getting out of trouble. You just can't stay mad at her. Especially when you come home to find she's been in the peanut butter jar.

She is ADORABLE!!!!! My son and I had a good laugh of her stuck in the PB jar. Our dogs really enjoy their PB jars too, but their heads are way too big to get stuck in them

Your puggle is so cute, and so much more Puggish than Tensai! He got mostly beagle. He's a butthead too. Lol!
