A bit snappy towards any one but me who tried to pick him up , very much disliked men (history) except Johnny who he took to very quickly (like, overnight), very loving , loved having tickles and headbumps , would often hop onto the sofa next to us – and curl up for a snoozey hug or watch films / tv with us - except he had a pure hatred for Top Gear and would (honestly!) try to turn the channel over or turn the tv off with a flick of his paw.
Would not tolerate anyone but me touching his lower back , back ankles , paw pads and especially belly! . This would result in being kicked, bitten or smacked with a paw. he wasnt agressive – he just feared more pain (wouldnt you with all those illnesses and hurts?)
Abilities: Even in his later years , he was very smart , he could open things and reach things on tippytoe that shouldnt be possibly. He could talk but due to his throat problems (forgot to write that above!) and operations ,he was barely audible to anyone but me (mamma’s can always tell their childrens cry in a crowded area and all that). He used to be a “good”(bad boy!”) rabbit and bird hunter in the fields out the back of the house , but often came home with lumps and bumps as if the wildlife were chasing him rather than vise versa!
Special Needs: This section is too much to write currently (its taken me months to have the strength to write this far , please bear with me…… :[ ...) the "hurts" are too much right now
Coat description: short slinky shiny black coat with "tuxedo" white markings and white "socks"
(pure black paw pads too until he was hit by the car and the vets thought he could loose the foot / pad and all.
With my care it healed well , and skin grew back in just 2 weeks but in a pink tone forever to be known as "the pinkypaw" when tickling him and him purring like a loon at me.... )
Breed Detail: British Shorthair Tuxedo [and darn proud of it!]
