BamBam was an extremely pretty cat, with a great coat, and though he was rather large, he didn't have weight trouble until later in life. He also developed feline diabetes, but less was known about treatment and alternative diets at the time, than with another cat I had.
BamBam was my childhood cat, and he lived a good long life. As a kitten he loved getting viciously playful, we all have scars from him, but loved him anyway. He was a black and white tuxedo cat, and very regal. He had single white hairs interspersed in the white, which I haven't seen in another cat. I'm sure he was pretty typical in personality, though he rarely meowed. Litter box issues were a struggle later in life, after his diabetes started. He was also neutered, which I think left him pretty susceptible to urinary tract infections.
A very catly cat. Aloof or friendly on his terms. Curious as could be!
