Dodo looks weird

From summer 1995 to June 1996 we had 2 cats, Maggie and Maestro Dodo. Unfortunately Maggie disappeared (never came home again) so now we only have Dodo left. They were brother (Dodo) and sister (Maggie), born on May 22, 1995 by Dirkje.
Maggie was a pussy-cat (the smart type) and Dodo is an ex-tom-cat (type very dumb; nomen est omen).

Dodo does this sometimes...

A short history.

Just before the summer of 1995 our previous cat (Margo(t)) was sadly put to sleep, because her breast-cancer was now getting so big she was definately in pain and it was getting difficult for her to get through the cat-door.
(On two previous occasions we had asked the vet to remove the cancer, once in 1991 and 3 years later in 1994, but this time he said it was probably spread through her whole body)

In the mean time, in another student flat Calslaan 11-1 Dirkje, their cat, was had given birth to a nest of kittens (on monday 22 May 1995). Dodo and Maggie were part of that nest, just as Dirk (son of Dirkje) who is their current cat. I (Simon) was lucky to be at the birth of the last 2 kittens (both black, so they were probably Dodo and either Dirk or their brother), who were born while I petted Dirkje to encourage her. Dirkje took very good care of her nest, getting them nice juicy mice and other little critters from the entire campus (well, almost), but one day she didn't return from her hunting <Sniff>. At first we only wanted one cat (the cost of cat-food and vet-costs is quite a burden for poor students) so we took Maggie (then we still thought Maggie was a tom-cat), but later the to-be owner of Dodo didn't want him because he was a HE so we took him as well. Looking back, we are very glad we got Dodo as well, because these cats were VERY happy together, they sometimes slept like one big ball of Cat and they fought and played together like no ever human could. Now Dodo is the only one left and he appears not to be planning to go away soon.

If you have a soundcard you can even hear them !
