Yow Yow


Yow Yow is back. He's eating at Tam's house and from the look of him, he's the father of Tam's sister Snow's kittens.

Although Yow Yow is a big bruiser of a tomcat, those kittens shove him out of the way fearlessly. Mind you, Yow Yow is a bit of a softy with little cats.

Here he is, taking a closer look at the camera. Yow Yow looks like hell but he's being fed properly at Tam's and he also eats round the back of our house with the stray girls.

For more stories about Yow Yow, from his earliest appearance as The Cat With The Dirty Face onwards, check out these links to old posts:

Poor Yow Yow! Wish I could adopt him -- clean him up, vaccinate him and have him neutered. With some good food, Vitapet conditioning oil and Cat-Pep vitamins, he'd look simply gorgeous. Say.... now this post has given me an idea. Why not? Why don't we 'adopt' Yow Yow? Any good reason why not?

I can touch Yow Yow but I'm not sure how he'll react in the vet's office - or even if I can get a box strong enough to hold him in. Let me discuss it with Tom. First thing to do is to get Tam to the vet for the Big Snip next week and then to take his sis and mum for their shots.

Oh god! Look at Yow Yow! He looks like those tough guys (cat version) in a Hong Kong movie ... (with scars on his nose to prove it!) ....

Quick, get him snipped! He looks like a "cat"sonova .....

Yow-Yow does look like he'd be a grouchy cat, but I am glad that he is just a big softie.
I think it is great the way you care for stray cats.
Our house must have an invisible sign outside it that says, "Dump your unwanted cats here." We have spent so much time taking care of cats that were thrown out and looking for homes for them.

That's a great pic of Yow Yow and I enjoyed reading about his past with the links you provided. :)

Thanks for helping take care of Yow Yow! We really liked the story about how he lets the kittens eat.

P.S. Dobby says he indeed has "target" markings - on both sides (he also has a heart on his shoulder - sort of like a tattoo!) I have never been able to get a really good photo of his targets, though! I had wondered before if that was how Target got his name.
