lucca.  we got him from a rescue organization about 4 years ago. he was a “teen” with a beautiful temperament.  he reminds me a lot of my son in how calm and open he is.  he was born with a sort of stubby tail.  he’s not a manx.  i suspect it just never really grew.  when he’s feeling proud his tail curls up and flares out like a shaggy pom pom.  i suspect maybe he wasn’t adopted as a kitten because of this.  one summer i was pulling burrs out of his tail when it hit me i could just grab some scissors and trim it into a REAL pom pom.  i was very careful not to get too close to the flesh of his tail.  i’ve been shaping his tail ever since.  when he struts now it looks fantastic.
