He's a pretty funky cat. He sucks at grooming himself so he gets armpit mats all the time. and he's got pretty long fur between his toes so he can't walk on anything smooth or jump onto stuff, not that he's coordinated enough for that anyway. He's by far the nicest and least creepy cat in this family.

I think Ratchet will win if they're ever pitted against each other.

Haha, it sounds like it. Poor Darko and his armpit mats. He did kind of have a bewildered look on his face in the video.

That's his regular face. It's full of a childish wonder about everything.

Open a door, flush the toilet, turn on the sink, etc and you're a wizard to him.

I love your descriptions of him, Pata. You really bring him to life. It's like I've even met him before.

After 4 months of not updating, I'd like to announce that Ratchet's ~1 year birthday is coming up in 7 days. I'll have had him for a year on the 30th.

He's doing well at the new apartment and has even been building extravagant bubblenests every week.

What an incredible and sad story! Glad to hear he is doing better!

I've so enjoyed reading this story. Ratchet seems a lot like my poor wee bloke, in the too-small-for-his-fins way, though Demyx is on the other end of the aggression scale, so far that we sort of consider him the ultimate milquetoast of the betta world.. LOL at Ratchet's plant assassin antics. And congrats to both of you for the 1 year milepost!
