By the way, Rockcat, tell me how many legs Tripod has and if the answer is what I think, SHAME on you ! ! ! !
My sweet kitty has 3 legs, but only 1 good foot. The other 2 feet are not formed correctly. It took 3 grown men to catch him when he was a teeny kitten. He was starving and filthy dirty. They put him in a box and brought him into my office. I fed him and gave him some time to adjust before attempting to pet him. He had been hissing and acted quite wild. As soon as I touched him, he began to purr. We didn't even realize that his legs weren't "right" until I took him out of the box. One of the guys who caught him named him Tripod.
Because he purrs so often and so loudly, I almost changed his name to "Lionel" after the train set. I had a lot of opposition and kept his original name.
I don't think he minds. He is a totally happy, well adjusted, loving cat. He has no idea there is anything "wrong" with him. In all reality, there isn't.
