There are millions of tails in this naked world, and this is one of them. Reader Cale entered Hamlet, an all black rescue cat with huge fangs and mismatched eyes. His story:
This handsome devil is Hamlet. We rescued him from the Omaha Animal shelter as a three year old in May 2000. He’s been an indispensable member of our family since the first day we brought him home. He has a serene almost Zen personality most of the time. He will coo and trill rather insistently to be picked up. He will also simply headbutt and force his way into sleeping in or on the spot you’ve already chosen on the bed for yourself; without fail he will sleep every night pasted to my wife with his head on her pillow. Some number of years ago his left eye changed color so he now has orange and yellow eyes to go with his vampire fangs. Unlike most cats, he cannot seem to purr but instead does this sort of snore/rattle thing and will knead the air or your arm when he’s happy.
