Here's Ripple~~


Ripple says Hello!

I realized I've never properly introduced my cat before! He's my trusty little co-blogger and book model~

First off, his named is Ripple. He's named after ripple chips, my mom's favourite. We were just joking around at first but it had a nice ring to it so we decided to keep it. About four years ago, we adopted him from our local SPCA. He was just the friendliest and most adorable little thing we've ever met. We took him home the next day!

He's different from other cats because he doesn't have a tail. The SPCA told us he'd been seen wandering the streets for six months. It wasn't until someone noticed he was hurt that he was brought in to the SPCA. Apparently his tail was mangled and rotting. They don't know exactly what happened to him but their best guess was it got caught on some fences. In the end they had to amputate it. Now he just has this little stump he waggles but even without a tail, he jumps and climbs just fine~

When he first came home with us, he was a little shy. He sniffed around, found a place and laid down to sleep. After four years, he runs around like a wild child and meows nonstop for food. We have endless nicknames for him like Po, Ripopo QPo, LilFatty and FatPo lol. He's pretty much the center of all our attentions and my parents spoil him silly!
 
Some of the things he enjoy doing include sleeping, eating, bird-watching, sleeping some more, staring, playing, eating some more and sleeping like there's no tomorrow. That about sums up his daily routine but here's a picture for you to visualize it better ;)

Thank you for reading Ripple's story! If you'd like to see more pictures of him, he's on Instagram! My sister tries to share pictures of him on there from time to time~ I'm also thinking of doing a post every Sunday just to share more of him with you guys. What do you think?

  1. Yay, we finally get to meet Ripple! He's so adorable, and always, photogenic. I think doing that every Sunday would be a great idea actually. Maybe you could combine it with something like Stacking the Shelves (and rename it or something). I'm sure you can work it out just fine. It'll be fun getting to know your co-blogger. LOVELY post!

  6. I never had a cat before due to allergies and you are one lucky person to have such an adorable kitten! I'm sorry about his tail but it's a relief to hear that he has no problem navigating without it.

    And I enjoyed how he got his name. It's a bit weird but I love it!
