The Beautiful Walmart Cat
There is something very appropriate about this photograph by Joyce Sammons of the now well known Furby in a Walmart bag. A feral cat who initially thought he was a Turkish Angora (TA) cat. He does have a bit of a look of a TA. Still, he is better being a beautiful feral cat now domesticated and loved.
Furby has been digging around with his nose – see the little indentation on the end of his nose. A stray that I named Timmy has the same slightly scuffed up nose. It’s all that nosing around checking up on stuff.
Where did Furby get “ear furnishings” as glamorous as that? A lot of cat breeders spend ages getting ear hair like that (
for the right cat breed of course – think Maine Coon as an example). Maybe he thinks he is a Maine Coon? Nah, he is too little.
All I know is that he looks fantastic and he is loved. The latter is more important than the former.
And it’s another great picture of a cat, just the right place for it on Pictures-of-Cats.org.
