Here she's doing her curled up shrimp imitation, and you can see a little of her curly legs and tummy!
You know, if you're going to say I'm like a shrimp, you could at least give me a shrimp! Just sayin'..
When Star was in her previous home, when she was a young lady of two years, a male cat broke into her house through a screen window. The humans weren't home so he was in there all day. And Star and her sister were in heat. Many kittens resulted and so did those scars.
They don't bother her at all. But the funny thing about them, when she gets her spring and fall allergies, those scars get rash on them too. I didn't think scar tissue could get rash!
Star has one other injury from her previous home, but it's not obvious to the eye. The last few bones in her tail are fused. I think it must have gotten slammed in a door. Now that did bother her for a while when she was new here but we couldn't locate the problem. We kept thinking it was her leg that would cause her to spin and have fits like she was in pain. Now that the bones are completely fused, though, they don't bother her in the least.
I think she's much happier here with us, even if she must share her home with Leo.
