Its time for another Frootbat Friday where I showcase my rather large (OK, HUGE) ears. I've found that while you all know me rather well there are certain nuances about myself that may be less understood. Like the thwapping sound my ears make when I shake my head. Or how I can loose an entire hind paw practically up to the hock when I scratch an ear. Or how they really are like radar dishes and I can hear what's going on downstairs when I'm upstairs as you can see my one ear "tune in" on what's going on. My ears themselves have a "thumbprint" which is light tan in color while the rest is darker and more black. This is part of being a lynx point.
Also remember that because I'm an Oriental Shorthair I'm actually not a meezer. In fact since I'm meezer colored I can't be a show quality OSH even though many of my siblings (even from the same litter) are allowed to show. My fur color does not match that of the CFA allowed patterns for OSH. Sure my relatives were meezers 30 years ago and some of my siblings are pointed but I'm a full blooded Oriental Shorthair. Apparently the meezers at the shows were competing against some of us meezer colored OSHs and they didn't like that so they changed the rules. My mother is actually a dark dark brown color, almost black, while my dad a tabby. But both have huge ears and long bodies and are very "meezy". So there's a little bit more on me!
