Rusty doesn’t *do* a true “cat loaf” – I’ve been watching with a critical eye ever since I learned the term on my favorite blog.
As I understand it a true cat loaf has the front paws tucked out of sight. I’ve had kitties that sat that way – but not him; he’s barely got one paw tucked slightly under. I guess he’s quite happy to sit the way that makes him feel comfy regardless of terms.
I think he’s got the right idea – relax into who you really are, not what others say you should be. If I was going to name it I’d call it the partial or half-sphinx. He’s certainly working on the aloof “gazing right through you” expression…
(Check out Three Chatty Cats for some fun articles and some great stories – don’t worry they weren’t telling him how to sit/lay it was simply some terms I didn’t know how to use.)
