Using the word, “Traversty”.
This photo was taken a very long time ago. My husband was very lucky Tinteretto was lying on the couch.
Traversty a distortion of things. Never underestimate what a cat will or won’t do. He looks innocent but Tinteretto or Tinta for short was a devil in cat form.
He walked around with all 4 paws in halo blue paint, he turned himself upside down and slid down the net curtains as he went down. He often got me up at 5am and turned down anything I gave him to eat. Sometimes he played silly and meowed on the front door came in and jumped out the back window and did it all over again. Yet he was a lovely cat.
Tinteretto had the innocent eyes of an angel but often left Warwick in sticking plaster. Yet despite his antics and his tendencies to scratch furniture and people and just about murder any other cat, I loved this cat. He lived until 11 years and died of liver failure.
