Wild cat

Here's Tripod, the feral cat that adopted me two weeks ago. He as turned from a timid, nervous cat who bolted food and bolted from humans, into a wuss.

He loves to be held twice a day, morning and evening. Not on your lap as a regular cat would, but literally held, like a baby. He lies there motionless and purrs while staring into my eyes. Its so odd. He's a very unusual cat who seems to have adapted to the indoor life seamlessly.

At the risk of having a cat and dog in the same post, I'll add the update to the coloured pencil drawing that I am doing of the black lab. Its slowly coming together. I'm building colour layers in the background and on the dog. But still a lot more to go yet.

thanks anne-julie. Yes he does have three legs, he obviously had an accident at some point in his life and lost most of his front left leg.

I'm glad he found you. You two seem to be very comfy together.
