Hello! I have 3 wonderful kitties. A 3 year old black DSH named Axel, a 1 year old black &awhile DSH a named Pickle, and his all white sister Provolone. They are all very different but get along perfectly! Axel is the snuggle bug, Pickle is the feisty one, and Provolone is a "scaredy cat". She is also what I believe to be (or at least what the Internet tells me) a "ringtail". She lies her tail flat on her back all the time. I've never seen anything like it, and neither has anyone who works at the vet office I work for (including doctors!). They are all special in their own way, however, Provolone is truly one of a kind.

I'm sure we'd all like to see a photo especially of "Provolone" with her tail on her back.....never seen that before.

Hi CatsRidiculous! I think heterochromia is fairly common in white cats - or at least, cats who have heterochromia are usually white. I know one kitty who often curves his tail over his back, but I've never seen a kitty with her tail completely flat to her back like that! It's always like that? I was curious, so I poked around a little. There really isn't much information, and I don't think I saw another quite like Provolone. But someone had an interesting observation about curly-tailed (ringtailed) cats and heterochromia. It's a random person in the Netherlands, so entirely not trustworthy, lol - still, it's interesting.

Looking forward to pics of the boys!

Thanks spirite! I'm really convinced miss provolone is one of a kind! Heterochromia may be common, but her "happy tail" is not. (That is what we call it in this house, since she always sports it and we'd like to assume she's always happy) If anyone else finds out anything please let me know! Now, as promised, here are the boys!

Aww.. so adorable. Lovely furbabies you have there!


It's called a hypermobile tail. Very much like "double jointed". Though I like the way you call it "happy Tail" !!!

Ooh they're cute! But I can only see the little thumbnail for Pickle. The pic of Axel opens larger when I click on it, but not the one of Pickle.

I love Axel's big round eyes. What's he wearing there? He seems sort of ....unsure about it. :D

LOL! He's got such a look of resignation on his face, like "Oh well, here we go again...me and a plastic bag..."
