This is Reno of Forty Paws. He is about three years old and is a perfectly symmetrical tuxie. He was born to a feral mother with Feline Herpes1 and has a very badly scarred cornea on his right eye. He was kept in a cage in a garage, along with his littermates, by a crazy lady, whose idea of taking care of these kitties was to deny them medical treatment. His littermates developed very bad diarrhea and the crazy lady gave them to Maw, but she kept Reno for another month. This means that the damage to his eye is much worse than that of his littermates. Maw thinks that he is mostly blind in his right eye, which may explain why he is the most skittish of the Forty Paws. Reno runs when he sees anyone coming toward him and he hates having his claws clipped. This means that Maw has to find him deeply asleep before she can grab him and clip his claws. He protests each clip. If he sees Maw coming with the clippers, he hides for three weeks. Reno likes to watch the rain and found out that he could push the cat flap open with his head and use it for an umbrella to watch the rain coming down. Unfortunately, there has been so much rain at Forty Paws recently that he has become bored with this and doesn't do it any more. I thought it was worth a limerick anyway. The (whap) is the noise the cat flap makes whenever it is opened or closes.
There is a perfect tuxie named Reno
Who watches the rain in a way that is keen-o.
He pushes the flap
Up with his head (whap)
And watches the rain with the flap on his bean-o.
