Actually, all you can see here is his dirty nose. This is my only cat that has huge muscles. His nape and shoulders are pure muscle. His forelegs are bigger too compared to his siblings.
Well, he is a Manx so that explains the legs but the rest of his body, I don’t know how he got that. His mom is ChaCha, by the way (also a Manx).
I couldn’t take a decent photo of him because he was too fidgety. He’s dirty because he just got back from making his usual rounds in the neighborhood (inside the confines of our gate).
I was finally able to take a quick shot of his muscles:
If you touch those parts that I’ve encircled, you’ll feel that they are hard, like touching a huge bicep. I have no idea if this cat does weights at nights…
He may be a bad boy on the outside but Ponchi is a very sweet cat. He likes snuggling up to me and likes to be hugged (just not in front of his siblings. He has to maintain the tough guy look). He acts like a baby whenever I play with him. He yells a lot (he likes the sound of his voice) when he wants to get my attention. Every morning, during his rounds, he yells a few meows. When he hears me call out his name, he stops. Then he yells again then I call him again. It’s a never ending thing until mom lets him in. Yeah, that’s Ponchi!
