My cat is beautiful. Let me start there! He was a rescue so I have no information on him. The vet said that he is approx. 2yrs old as of April 2015. He is solid black. Deep dark rich black. No markings of any kind. His most notable physical feature is his tail. It’s poofy.
I have seen cats when they are angered or annoyed & their tails puff or swell for lack of a proper term. His tail is like that all the time. It resembles the tail of a fox. A black fox tail. His coat is sleek and smooth.
I would say its medium to long with no undercoat. His personality is unique, I think. He is more like a dog than a cat. He follows me and my husband around the house. He wants to be near us when we are having meals or watching TV.
He will drop to the floor with a loud “thud” when we go to pet him, it’s too cute. Whenever you reach down to pet him he drops like a sack of potatoes and lies there enjoying the attention. He’s very affectionate. From everything I have read about cats they aren’t supposed to be that affectionate. He does not purr loudly at all. As a matter of fact I have to place my ear on his back to even tell if he’s purring.
He “chatters”. Yup, you heard me he chatters at the window while watching birds. I looked it up on YouTube and it is refereed to as chattering or chirping. He talks to me throughout the day, not incessantly just enough to keep me company.
The fur around his neck is thick almost like a mane. His ears are regular cat ears,nothing remarkable. They stick straight up not too big or small they look like they “fit him” just fine. His eyes are a greenish/gold.
The pupils get totally round when he is excited or we’ve given him catnip (so much fun to watch). Other than his eyes the only other color on his body is his little pink tongue. Even the pads of his feet are all black with thick tufts of fur in between his toes. He weighs 12 lbs.
