Our new manx kitty arrived today original.gif

He is a rumpy which means he has no tail at all not even a stump.

He is also an amputee as he's missing his back foot which was due to mum being a bit over keen on the cleaning dept when the kittens were born.
His name is tripod laughing2.gif

Our oriental type kitten is 14 weeks old and this little man is already on his way to being much bigger.
She is over the top trying to muscle him and he's a little spooked by it.

Now he's crashed out on the ouch beside me original.gif




And our other girl PC original.gif she claimed the new bed straight away

Thank you original.gif
PC is from a friends relative. Their new cat ( just wandered in a week before) dropped 5 kittens.

I can't wait until Tripod works out that PC is a good playmate and they start playing original.gif
So far he comes out of the kitty hut and growls at her ewrs some food then back in.

She's a bit confused.

He's such a chunky fella compared to her and he has huge feet!

and at the litter box?

He kind of shuffles I've seen him tip sideways a few times but he seems to get around ok.
I've seen him trying to use his leg to scratch his ear lol

No dramas so far with the litter tray which is good.

Thank you we are pretty stoked with them.
We also have out old puss who we found while out 4x4ing a few years ago.
She's is not tolerate of kittens so she steers clear of them.

Sensible and wise older cat.

She may tolerate them when they grow into more sensible beings. laugh.gif

Patches does not suffer fools laughing2.gif

She belted our staffy pup up when we first got her and it taught the puppy to submit to the cats.

She loves to be toted around by the kids and some adults, others she won't have a bar off.
It's sad seeing her looking aged sad.gif but as east she got more years than she should have in the bush.

Congrats on your 1.6 new cats! wink.gif

The oriental reminds me very much of my oriental-ish moggie thing. I love the ears and the slim elf shape.

The manx is super-cute too.

Your old girl may yet come to like them, I have brought kittens in to older grumpier cats and in one case they became friendliest with each other years later. Your old girl sounds like a character. She may decide she likes the others just when its cold out and she can share bodyheat or convince them to wash her so she doesn't have to bother. original.gif

My laptop is being very shoddy at colours, please clear one thing up for me: Is one lilac and one orange, or is one cream, or are they actually the same colour and my laptop is just giving me the double bird because it can? roll2.gif

The top one is orange and white I guess ginger.
And the bottom one is a ginger like champagne. But with darker stripes.
Her mum was a tortie and dad was a rascal laughing2.gif
She's a moggy but seems to have an oriental type build and head.


#15 la di dah

Posted 04 February 2013 - 06:57 AM

They're both so very cute. And I love ginger kitties.

#16 Mama8

Posted 04 February 2013 - 07:01 AM

Because of his foot I can hear every move he makes in the house with his bell lol
The other girl can sneak around but not him

They are both gorgeous original.gif

Day 3 and happy to report they are now friends original.gif


And Tripod is exploring more now and even climbed the kitty gym this morning while I was putting the washing in the machine ( kitties sleep in the laundry at night so no midnight wrestling matches)



A glad he's feeling at home here and coming out of his shell.
Such a sweet boy original.gif
