Felis demicaudatus

I opened the front door to my block this morning to find a lovely fluffy black-and-white cat with fine curly whiskers sitting on the doorstep.

"Hello puss," said I, "whose puss are you?", and proceeded to initiate friendly relations.

As I approached, I was startled to notice that puss had lost more than half his/her tail. There were a couple of inches of fluffy tail, then several further inches which had obviously been completely baldified in whatever incident caused the loss and were covered in soft, short new fur. Weirdest thing I've ever seen on a feline, especially when I was administering strokage and the thin fuzzy stump was wiggling about.

Still a cute puddy tat, though.
