My mom had a friend who had 4 tail less cats...they had little stubs. One of them had kittens and the kittens had little stub tails. She had a term that she used for tail less cats cant remember what the term was.
I believe the term is “Manx,” BH.
I think "Target" is the word you're looking for.
My wife and I have this “conversation” all the time . . .
Troglodytes, the both of you. I'll never forget the day one of the fellows with permission to hunt our land proudly showed me my own, freshly killed pet like he was going to get a reward for it. I was about seven at the time, and I still remember it as one of the most brutal, classless things I've ever witnessed.
I hope your 'outrage' is in the same vein as my teasing. If it's not, then
Lighten up Francis. You remind me of Dan and that other guy who get so worked up when I bash cObs.
Strange how memory works. My reaction reminded you of guys that don't get your humor. You reminded me of the guy that shot my cat. Lets not try to create new ones.
We’re cloning cats on CPS now?

This place is %fraking amaze-balls.

Manx was the term, thanks DP. I am a dog guy although in my time on this earth there have been a couple of cats that I liked a lot...they had personalities like a dog...must be what I liked about them.

I used to work with a woman who took her cats so seriously that she was offended at the slightest negative comment...like "I prefer dogs over cats" She took it as a personal attack on her cats. SO....I came up with a list of "Thought's about cats"...mostly off the internet but many from the old TV show ALF...like Tabby Pot Pie, So many cats...so few good recipes.

For Christmas one year I drew her name as Secret Office Santa...I got her a t-shirt that said. "A cat will almost always blink if you hit it in the head with a ball-peen hammer" She didn't speak to me for a week. No sense of humor. Like I said...there have been a few cats that I liked a lot over the years.

My Chartreux Cat, Lucy. She will be 2 years on April 1st. Isn't she adorable? The history of this breed is that the Crusaders on their way back to Europe found these wild, all grey cats in the mountains of Syria, captured some of them and brought them to a Monastery in France. One of their many charming characteristics is that they are silly.

"Iggy" is progressing wonderfully.
He's off leash now and free to roam the yard!

Oh, those soulful setter eyes!

On the lawn.
Image

In the front yard at the edge of the meadow.
Image

On point.

That's not a training collar. We have an invisible fence. Iggy now has around two acres to run around in with mixed mowed lawn, wild meadow and stands of aspen, elm and a few ornamental trees near the house.

My wife and I are smitten.

A magnificent looking Setter. I can see how he is bringing great joy. He is thinking, "Yes! I can stay here!"

When my wife and I found this piece of land 22 years ago, we sat in the meadow slack jawed mute and just stared.
We stayed like that for a couple of hours.

The year after we bought it (barely could afford it then - I was a full-time fishing guide and struggling writer and Debbie was a nurse) the price of land in this valley tripled, and building costs doubled. Now it’s even more expensive.

No way we’d have been able to do it a year later.
No way we could do it now.

We know how blessed we’ve been and never take any of it for granted for a single second.
