While some cats gain human friends and fans through active and energetic campaigning, there are others who need to do little more than pose.
This mystery tabby caught our attention through this signature pose:
Kim first sent me this photo for inclusion in Graceless Kitties, but I thought he or she just looked too cool to be lumped in with a bunch of goofballs. Then, when I tried to find out the name of this cat, I discovered that nobody knew.
As “unknown tabby” lacks the personal touch, Leslie invited me to make up a new name for this one, a task I offered in turn to Kim, who’d been the one to introduce me. And so we arrived at the name “Nutmeg.”
Until Nutmeg decides whether being called a particular name is a good enough incentive to let us get closer than safe peering distance from the top of the cages, we’ll just have to continue being treated to the signature pose.
