I love cats. I used to have 9, but now have six since 3 died of old age. But I can’t believe Free Republic has a genuine interest in Grumpy.
I believe! Hallelujah!
Yay! Grumpy cat!!!! You are the best for posting.
Long live Tardar!
I am but a humble servant of Ceiling Cat.
I would suspect a Siamese mix. Look at pics of Snowshoe cats, which were an effort to breed Siamese with white feet and tuxedo markings. I have a pet quality Snowshoe and he is a darling.
I wonder if there are actually more dwarf cats being born, or if there is just more attention to them because of the internet.
I luv Grumpy but I think his Mommy has issues.
We all are. They have us wrapped around their little paws.
Even mean old humblegunner loves Grumpy Cat.
I watched some of the videos involving that little dwarf cat, and they were hilarious.
Awwww.... I love Grumpy Cat!
You raise a good point there. Issues/items/events which would have had only local attention before the internet now go world wide in minutes/hours/days.
