Trunks the cat {Perth Pet Photography}

A few weeks ago, I dropped by Russell’s house and took some photographs of his cat, Trunks! Trunks is a beautiful ginger tabby with the softest fur and a friendly, talkative nature.

Russell inherited Trunks from a friend who was moving in with a cat-allergic partner.

He was named Trunks because it was the name of a character on Dragonball Z and his original owner was a huge fan of the show.

I thought Trunks was a young cat due to the agile way he moved around and his friendly, kitten-like temperament, but he is actually 12 human years old, which means he is 70 in cat years!

Russell’s favourite thing about Trunks is when he sits on Russell’s belly with his tongue sticking out, purring, a picture of contentment.

Russell’s least favourite thing about Trunks is when he wakes Russell up at 3am because he’s hungry and he’s forgotten where his biscuits are.

Russell and his housemate joke that even though Trunks is old and scrawny, he beats up all the strays in the neighbourhood when they venture onto his turf.

Trunks doesn’t like to be picked up like a baby, but he will tolerate it for a very short while.

Trunks’ eyes look a little different because he has had eye surgery – it’s a hereditary condition in his family that cause his eyelashes to grow into his eyes. He is fine now, though!

Russell describes Trunks as “affectionate, unpretentious and an adorable dork.”

This is where Trunks likes to sleep during the day; on a comfy bean bag in his housemate’s room next to the blinds.

At night time, Trunks likes to curl up with Russell!

Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed playing with Trunks while the boys were playing Pokemon on the 3DS! It had been newly released that day ;) Thank you for having me over Russell!
