  1. Our good buddy Fluff.
    A number of years ago he sneaked outside when it was just too cold. After 20 minutes or so he came back with a shivering right ear that lay flat on his head - FROZEN :Shocked:
    Over the next few days it gradually turned black, scarred and then just fell off. Since then he has a lovely profile of 1 1/2 ears :biggrin: :biggrin: (no ill sequences to it at all).

    Here he is taking in some fresh winter air after being caught inside for some time during a blizzard:

    Is he an outside kitty still Frits,

    He is just so pretty. I love fluffy B/W kitties.

    I never noticed his ear. It does not look real pronounced.

    Nice shot .....Big yellow eyes sure intense looking at something.
     
  3. Thanks Gale!
    Oh yes, he is outside a lot when the weather is OK. In winter he stays in when there is lots of snow and when it gets real cold. He is a great guy, very sociable and never hurts anyone. He's a big guy too, but all muscle - very strong! Outside the real hunter in him comes out - catches and kills lots of field mice!
