Our outside, still somewhat feral cat, who nonetheless enjoys being around people (on his terms) has displayed a jerkiness the past week. Even when lying in his bed, his tail
and body twitch.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: His name is Noodle. I have no idea how old he is. We live in the country and he appeared on our porch in April while we were sitting there with guests. He had this habit of licking feet / ankles. If the person of interest sat still it was fine but if they jumped it startled him and he bit.
JA: Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the veterinarian can help you. How old is Noodle?
Customer: Another "twist" is that I know he was male, as his "equipment" was visible sometimes while grooming. Then, he disappeared for almost 3 weeks. We were sure he had succumbed to a coyote or something. Eventually he reappeared, smaller, scruffier, and WITHOUT his testicles! That was about 4 months ago.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Noodle?
Customer: Only that he is sweet, shares his food
with another cat when it shows up.
