Hammie Wash

Hammie the bobtail orange cat, bathing
Our miniature bobcat Hammie, enjoying an after-brunch bath. Hammie is friendly to a sufficient degree to be all over this blog. You'll find many Hamster "Hammie" Cat pictures. He's a little nervous and shy around strangers but but for me he'll pose with ease.

Hammie was abandoned when he was about 4 weeks old. I rescued him and bottle-fed him. One interesting side effect of all that is that he likes having a "binky" of some kind when I pet him. Typically he'll find a convenient fold in my top and latch on to it. It's a comfort thing.

I tried to find him his own home back when he was a kitten in 2006, but you know how it is with finding homes - unfortunately. However, Hammie is contented to be here, and very used to his life at this point.

Hammie was raised with another abandoned bobtail kitten, Lucy - and she became my personal companion.
