His tail is curled at the tip a bit, he fathered a litter of two before I caught him and one of his kittens had his short tail as well.

Norachan in Japan says her bunch of short-tailed cats really have regular sized tails but they are deformed into these short or bobtails, she says you can feel the crumpled-up tails through the skin of their tails. I wonder if Gray's tail and that of his kitten's are like that?

Thanks. I think blue and lilac points are especially pretty.   She's laying in her usual spot... on my bed on top of a comforter.  Sometimes she sleeps under it, but she really likes the new comforter(because it has a cover with a high thread count, no doubt.. My kitten is a little spoiled... :lol3: )

@segelkatt
Yeah grays tail is a bit like that, so was his kittens! At the tip of his tail you can feel a kind of knobby part, like it is crumpled or compacted. His kittens were beautiful. The bobtail one was black with blueish eyes and in the sun you could see brownish red spots. He was adopted almost instantly. his other kitten was an adorable gray tabby. She had a regular tail but it was shorter than normal, and she had a bad wound on her back leg, she was missing her paw but it healed nicely. The mother was a very tiny Brown tabby, like 5 lbs. They were all adopted within about a week, thankfully. I just wish i could find Gray a home. I was wondering if he was a regular DSH With just an abnormal tail or if he was a Manx, because His back legs are a bit longer than his front so he looks a bit like a rabbit when he runs.

@parisinthe30sx  Are Gray's forelegs significantly shorter than his hind legs, and / or bowed?   This can be an indication of an inherited bone deformity which affects bone and cartilege. Known as Osteochondroplasia, it usually affects long bone growth - I don't know if it can also affect tails  (I'm more familiar about how it presents in humans but it happens in dogs and cats too).    If there is some chance Gray has this condition it is important in terms of how he might age, and any breeding because it can cause other problems such as arthritis as cats age, and any kittens can inherit the condition - which can include difficulties such as spine deformities, jaw deformities, and shortened limbs.  

 

How interesting that bones can be felt in the tail but it is shorter in length.

@MServant his front legs look to be about regular length not bowed at all thankfully, and his back legs seems to be just a little bit longer. He's a really unique looking cat, and extremely smart. I think someone might have caught him once before because it doesn't matter how hungry he is or what I tempt him with, he won't come within five feet of a trap. He used to Get the food out without tripping it, but now he won't come close. I even tried getting him in my front door, nope. It's like he knows lol

I'm glad he seems healthy.    What a shame - he seems to be too smart for his own good.  :sigh:    I hope you can keep him reasonably well cared for out there, and manage to get more pictures to share with us.  :bigthumb:

Here's one from about a week ago. I think I'm Going to contact a rescue group for some tips, maybe they can help me catch him.

Rescue groups love when people care enough to try to help feral and stray cats. I'm sure they'd be glad to help you set up traps to lure him in.

Great idea about contacting a rescue group if there's one near by.  Good luck.  :vibes:

I finally got round to uploading a few recent photos of the Mouse today.  :catguy:

 

  Staring at me in the hope I will feed him some biscuits....

 

  Staring at said biscuit tin in the hope it will open itself when I fail to do what I'm being told.  :lol3:

 

  Snuggling up on the fleece, next to me on the sofa despite my not giving in to his pleading for biscuits.  heart-on.gif

Griff and me.  He doesn't look terribly impressed by my 'photo-bombing'!

He looks as if he was saying  " And what do YOU want?, Can't you see I'm busy?"

post #1758 of 1776

@segelkatt I know!  He's a very prim pussycat.  :cat:

 

"Hey, you, get off of my cloud!  Don't hang around because two's a crowd...."  storm.gif

 

 

He's charming though, very characterful.  He was a walk-in at my mum's.  We know the people he used to live with, he just upped sticks and moved house.  Quite embarrassing really!  He's the sort who will suddenly run up and jump on your knee, then if you move a muscle he'll savage you.  You can tell that deep down he wants to be fussed, but he just can't hack it.  It's best to give him a swift pat on the head and leave it at that. :bat:

This is Grey, he was a stray I had been taking care of outside for the last couple years[IMG], but was time to bring him in in December, he seems to love it inside!!
post #1760 of 1776

He's gorgeous @David's Steph He looks a bit like Gin kun, the one in my avatar. He was a stray that moved in with us too. Sadly not here anymore. :sigh:

What happened to Gin kun?
Grey is an FIV cat, he was in so many fights outside before I was able to take him in and get neutered. The wounds I saw on him were unbelievable , so horrid in the years he was living outside. I felt helpless for him. But now all of that is in past, he will spend his final years indoors and loving it!!

P. S. The vet told me he is FIV positive, and asked me if I am ready with what that might entail, and I said, yup, I understand I might have him a few months only, OR years yet

I adopted a cat once from a shelter before FIV was readily known. I had him for a year, he was a black smoke, so beautiful, I called him Teddy. When he started to get sick the vet told me he was FIV positive and he lived just a few weeks more.  I have no pictures of him but he will always live in my heart.

Gin was an outside cat too. He first turned up about 5 years ago. looking very skinny and battle scarred. He'd obviously been fending for himself for a while but I think he'd either been someone's pet or someone's feral because he allowed me to pet him and eventually put him in a carrier after just a few weeks. He had infected bite marks on his back legs and his ear had been badly torn. Intact males have a really rough time outside, don't they?

 

The first few trips to the vet involved stitches and antibiotics, then he needed a dental to remove a broken tooth and treat an ulcer. Finally got him neutered after that.

 

He was FIV+ too, but it didn't seem to make a lot of difference to him. He was always very healthy and ate like a horse.

 

He was an indoor/enclosure only cat for the last few years. He managed to charge out the front door last summer and I haven't seen him since. I always hope he'll come back one day. I live in the middle of a forest so it's a pretty good place to be a cat.

 

This is one of the last pictures I took of him.

wow.gif  @Norachan Grey really does look like Gin Kun doesn't he!     Such stunning and beautiful colouring and facial features.  Very dignified.

 

I like to think that Gin Kun is roaming his area of forest enjoying the wilderness and keeping healthy, but remembers his loving home and will one day return (if only to saunter by letting you see how handsome and well he is).  Hope is good.  :vibes:

Wow, such a wonderful collection of gray tabbies.  :heart3:    Indy, Grey and Gin Kun are so gorgeous.   I don't think I even knew gray tabbies existed before I joined TCS. thud.gif
