Where's the rest of your tail?

I found this paper at Hardy's called Kertas Pembungkus Makanan which means wrapping paper for food. I have noticed many people on the beach eating rice dishes off sheets of this brown kraft type paper. One side has a coating to keep the Bumbu and Sambal sauces from leaking through. I am using the non-coated side to sketch with pens and colored pencils. I then collaged this beach cat  sketch into my small moleskine. 
So far, there is no sign of any cat in Bali with a normal length tail...

Humm, bob cats of some sort- charming kitty and the paper (collaged), such a wealth of information from your adventure - and Hardy's like the Hardy's we have or had in US?? I am enjoy ing your insites tremendously and hope you have DSL now to make it all easier.

Your Bali sketches are wonderful. I'm enjoying your record of your stay there. Funny how you love those dogs, and now cats.

Ubud Village Hotel has always had ginger cats with normal length tails.

I have a 22 year old muted calico Manx cat. She is a free spirit, and so cute when she walks and runs, without that tail. I just found out that she has renal failure, so we don't know how much longer she will be with us. The vet is giving her "old kitty meds" that should make her feel better.
I also raised Olde English Sheepdogs, some years ago. They, too, were so cute with their bobbed tails!
Love reading about your adventures!

I noticed this in Bali myself, many years ago. I asked someone and they laughed and said 'Unlucky accident' - it's become one of my stock answers to anything I don't know.

Very much enjoying your life in Bali, Jennifer.
