Huck the Cat Somersaulting!

At long last: the acrobatic skills of the Miniature Golden Tiger* of Broad Ripple, captured on video!

How about that!
* Tam: "If that tomcat was half again as big, I would be concerned about having him as a housepet." If it wasn't that he purrs, I'd wonder if he was one of the bigger-type cats and had more growing yet to do.

Many textbooks state that only small cats, members of the Felix genus, can purr. However, it appears that cats in the genus Panthera, such as lions, tigers, leopards, and jaguars, also purr. It also believed these big cats may not be able to purr while meowing, growling, or eating, unlike smaller cats.

Maybe he's part Bobcat?

Rooster, the cat whom I serve and looks a lot like Huck, does that in the tub. Does Huck do a lot of running around thundering on his paws for the sound effect? Rooster loves that - so much for "the stealthy predator."

Huck's quite the galumpher, yes indeed -- and (see above) he may actually be a very small, very pale tiger. He certainly thinks so.

What a cool cat! And he plays clarinet well, too...

He looks nearly identical to a friend's cat. Similar weight too. This cat is named lil' bit. If you scratch him in just the right spot, he will lick the air.
Orangies are hilarious. I love them.
