Got tuna?

It is only by drawing often, drawing everything, drawing incessantly, that one fine day you discover to your surprise that you have rendered something in its true character.
(Camille Pissarro)

Tripod's favourite food is tuna. People tuna at that. Or dry catfood which he had to learn to eat as he'd never eaten it before judging by how he tried to gulp down mouthfuls of it without crunching it up first.

His gets his fix of tuna twice a day and is VERY vocal about it if you're not prompt enough serving it up. Tuna, with additional 'fresh' morsels that he catches and proudly leaves for me in the grass by the front step. Mice, shrews, rabbit, muskrat and something with a long furry tail - that was all that was left. Disability obviously doesn't cause many problems for this guy.

i just love to see Tripod! i never get tired of this fella and have come to feel like i know him almost as one of my own. looks like you have him well spoiled, Jeanette. LOL i'd say after his life in the wild it's well deserved. he certainly found the right home.

Billie, he's a spoiled brat and quite the character. At times I truly think he's a reincarnation of the dog and cat I had who died a couple of years ago.

You have full Auntie Billie rights over Tripod. :)

it's funny that you say he's a reincarnation. my mother passed away in 1987 and when i got Raven i swore she was my mother come back to me as a cat. she had so many of the same moods, likes dislikes, etc. makes one wonder, doesn't it?

i'll gladly except the title of Auntie Billie to Tripod! i'm honored. LOL
