The Pawless Pawrate by hoschie The Pawless Pawrate by hoschie
I love ALL cats. All kind of cats but some of them shine brighter than the other :aww: Ritchie is one of them. He has an bad infection so his leg has to be removed to safe his life. Now he is a pawless Pawrate ;-) It is incredible how fast cats recover and be able to life with such an handicap. He is very shy and fearful (I think he made bad experiences with humans in his life) and when a human shows he disappears into the smallest edge try to be unseen. In the cathouse I always have my girlfriend on my side and she is such a cat-whisperer :inlove: She is always able to connect to those uber-shy cats and made them pose for me. She always uses the instinct of hunting and playing all cats have. So if you have a very shy cat try to play with them. The success in hunting and playing gives your cat more self confidence and this can help to built up a trustful relationship to their owner. AND it is so much fun :aww:

For me it is a special picture because I take it in the moment when the curiosity wins against the fear and he comes out of his box....

Infos
Name: Ritchie
Gender: boy

What a gorgeous little guy!!! I wish I could give him a home, but I am on a completely different continent and am already owned by two cats.
