Zoey the Cool Cat’s ancestry
Zoey the Cool Cat is a ginger tabby-colored American Shorthair, sometimes called a Domestic Shorthair.
I think back when I was growing up in Kingsville, Texas, they were called “alley cats.”
Zoey the Cool Cat has huge hind legs and haunches, leading us to believe that daddy might have been a jackrabbit.
A recent picture that Jim captured on his smartypants phone seems to indicate that mommy might have been a ring-tailed lemur.
My pictures of the ring-tailed lemurs at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park are poor — they never cooperate with me — so I had to borrow that picture from Wikipedia.
It was there that I found out that the scientific name for the ring-tailed lemur is Lemur catta.
Ah-ha! The proof is in the pudding.
