Yep, that ear is awesome!
Well, I can't argue with that! Of course, I may be biased. The woman who first opened his cage for us said, "Some people are turned off by his ear."
"That ear is part of his great personality!" Here's a shot I took today...
No photo manipulation, just some good light coming from the side, and a bit of light from behind (in our motorhome).
While we do think he is a handsome boy, this is what hooked me...
He is a snuggly boy - seems to know just what "his people" need.
Not ready to take him out on the scoots, though. Yet.
Take your time! The cat is amazing. The ear is a big plus in my book. :)
Are both ears functional? I had a dog with only one working, he could never find any noises. Other dogs would bark but he never knew where they were.
Yep, he seems to hear fine with both ears, but can't "rotate" the wonky ear. Very alert.
Nothing to do with the question, I just like the, "Hey - let me in!" attitude.
Circumnavigating the White Tank Mountains today...
No twisties. Desert scenery. A 4-lane. You'd think it wouldn't be my thing, but we enjoyed it... like having the Sun Valley Parkway all to ourselves...
No, we didn't take Rufus. But...
25 degrees and slick spots here. Ugh. I should have stayed in Florida longer.
I get that. When we used to divide our time between SD and TX, it didn't seem to matter when we came back north in the spring - there would be another snow storm in the Black Hills. When grousing about it one time, a friend said to me, "You think it's bad for you coming back from the warmth? We've been here all winter and we're tired of this shit!" While not eloquent, it did drive the point home.
Yeah, I put my snow shovels away and it snowed the next day. They are back in the shed and staying there no matter what!!!
I knew we were living in the right place when the local hardware stores don't carry snow shovels. A friend once told me: "Strap a snow shovel to the front of your motorhome; drive south until someone asks "What is that thing?" You're home."
The second winter I was in Houston I had gone to a Christmas party on the opposite side of town which put me about 30 miles from home. So I stayed at a friend's house near the party afterwards only to wake up to a couple of inches of snow on the ground. So I pulled out my Key Map to find a way to get home without going through downtown (I'd already seen enough to know there was no way I wanted use the Pierce Elevated with idiots who slam on their brakes when they feel a loss of traction). Once I'd plotted my route and after the defroster had a chance to loosen the ice/snow on the windshield I reached in the back and pulled out my ice scraper. As I cleared my windshield a guy came out of the condo complex and watched for a moment. Then said "that's really cool, what it it?"
My reply "an ice scraper".
His reponse "where would I get something like that".
Me "Walmart, any auto store but if you have a Teflon coated pancake turner you can use it."
Him "cool, thanks I was going to use hot water" as he turned to go back into his unit.
I quickly finished and got the hell out of that parking lot before he returned because I sure didn't want to be on the road with that guy.
Another day, another direction - out past the racetrack that used to be called PIR...
Another nice day in the desert...
Last full day of winter. I have been thinking about some time on the water... getting itchy feet, I guess.
