Latte is a seal point Siamese who was adopted from his breeder in November of 2005 when he was 9 weeks old. It took him about three days to get used to his new home, but he took to Chase right away. He turned out to be quite a handful, tearing around the house and getting into everything and driving Chase nuts. It didn't take long for the people to decide that Latte needed a young cat companion and that is how they came to adopt Kaze. The two of them love playing together and wrestling. Latte has always held his tail in a curl. The day of his wedding to Cheysuli, his Mom and Dad noticed that he was not holding his tail up as usual. He had a huge lump at the base of the tail and it was painful. Off he went to the vet, who determined that the tail was not broken, but it had suffered some sort of trauma. The best guess is that Kaze opened a cabinet door and Latte went inside to investigate. The door then closed on his tail. Fortunately the tail is all better now, as you can see in the picture.

                                           Latte likes to hold his tail in a curl.
                                           It means he is happy; all is right with his world.
                                                   When it was hurt
                                                    It dragged in the dirt,
                                           But now it is back in its happy curl.

I sure am glad Latte's tail is better! Now that he is better I can tell you that I laughed at the funny line about how when it was hurt it dragged in the dirt. Poor Latte! I think Latte and Kaze like to play rough together. Playing rough is fun (until somecat gets hurt!).

Oh wow, what a great limerick for me! Thanks Karen Jo!!

Its true, my tail is probably the most expressive part of my body. It is mostly healed now but it still hurts when it gets bent the wrong way.

We do play REALLY rough together. I love it though!

That was a heck of a way to start his honeymoon, with a big lump in his tail that hurt. Sure hope your tail is a lot better Latte. It's so good to have someone to wrestle around with.
