Tricky by Lhuin Tricky by Lhuin
Ha! Finally got a good photo of him :D
This is one of the things I mentioned in my journal that has kept me busy lately.

Meet Tricky! He's a 5 years old domestic shorthair me and my boyfriend ~megamisfit recently adopted from a local cat shelter where I've been working (taking photos of the cats on their website, it's great fun and also great to be able to help!)
We had already been thinking about getting a cat some day, and surprisingly enough got a permission from our landlord to get one. I met Tricky a few months ago, and he just seemed... well, you know that feeling when you feel like this dog/cat/animal has something special in them! And he was quite funny too and followed me around in his pod all the time when I was taking photos of the other cats : D One time I was trying to take photos of another cat, heard a loud MEOW, turned around and he was there like this: i.imgur.com/aR0nCIYl.jpg I think that made us like him even more haha!

We got him here about a month ago and he's settled in really well. He loves his attention but is also happy to just sit on the bed and watch us : D and he likes staring at you like OvO especially in the morning and rolling over because tummy petting is the best. And headbutting and nosebeeping people. He's a bit silly and crazy sometimes.
And also what's funny, our hamster likes him but he's a bit scared of the hamster! (I don't let them be with each other without any hamster ball/cage anyway but hamster's always like 8DDD HI FRIEND and cat is not too sure what to make of it and runs away). So much for being worried about him being a bit too interested in the hamster...!

He was a stray before we got him, and before that someone apparently owned him and ended up deserting him, not sure why.
Because of this he's got a few cuts in his ears and he also had no tail as he had injured it and it had to be amputated. But that all adds to his character! And he looks like a little bobcat/lynx sometimes the way he's walking around the house. :aww:
It's nice to have a cat anyway and he's a really cool cat too!

oops wall of text. But here's a little picture I drew of him too! i.imgur.com/NnqZdFe.jpg
Also this photo is not the best but the best I got at the moment!

I also have a cat with an amputated tail. We have a doberman at the house too and I think it's cute how they match now with their little stub tails! <3 Great pic.

Naww!! What a cutie!! His eye colour is just stunning!! My Meka looks very similar, but he a expected Siamese x shorthair moggie - we are definitely sure of the Siamese!! He was thrown out of a car going down a highway when he was nearly a year old - he and his littermate were uninjured and then rescued. A couple days later we adopted him, and 14 years later you wouldn't tell how old he is except for the grey hairs in his coat. All our cats have been rescues and strays - in my opinion they are much more affectionate and loving, as they are so thankful for a second chance at life :heart: My boy-->fav.me/d45xpba

Aww, what a cutie~ He's lucky to have you!

We took in an abandoned cat a few years ago that was literally on death's door. My mom took her in to the vet and no one expected her to survive, but they gave her a chance anyways. We slowly nursed her back to health and soon we had one of the feistiest little witches of a cat ever, hahaha. She adored my mom and would snuggle up next to her in the chair, but she hated me and all the other cats. She was quite terrible sometimes, but she was very amusing. Eventually she tamed down enough to like me and tolerated the other cats (minus two we had to keep her separate from). Not even a full year after taking her in and getting her spayed and everything she goes out one day and comes back with a broken tail. We think she got run over, but we were never certain. She had to have the tail amputated, which is what your story reminded me of. XD Sadly, she had medical issues ever since the amputation, probably damaged nerves. So just a couple years ago she got really bad and had to be put down... Even though the cats are a lot happier without little "Queen Cleo" around, we miss her a lot. She was a real character. I'm just glad to see another kitty like her getting a second chance and I bet Tricky will be a very happy companion for you for many years to come. X3

Aw  thanks for sharing your story! Sure sounds like a cat with a lot of character XD and ha wonder if our cat lost his tail the same way too! Could be possible. 
Sorry to hear that she passed though :( I'm sure she really appreciated everything you did for her too ♥ :aww:

Aww that's actually a funny coincidence what happened with that cat, he was originally in the cat place where I work and he was one of my favourite cats, but one day he was gone and Tricky had replaced him, I actually thought Tricky was that cat at first but then I noticed the 'beard'.
We adopted Tricky and I later found out that the cats had been swapped, our cat was from another cat place about 1hr away from the other one, so Tricky came from that place and that cat I drew went there. 

It's funny cos they look very similar apart from the beard, and if he hadn't been gone before we were able to adopt a cat and they wouldn't have gotten Tricky there I think I might have wanted to adopt that one XD both nice cats and quite similar personalities.
(But very happy with our cat anyway ofc! :aww:)
