is it a raphael cat ?
I purchased a pictus cat ? It is black with white dots, its dorsal fin is a checkerboard. As i posted once it RIBBITS ! Reluctantly i tell you it has hind legs YEP ! after he fell oin the sink i put him on a lotus leaf to get a look at him well he jumped twice to get off the big leaf, is it really a r. cat ? Sorry i am unable to post a picture.

Sorry i got a call. Well his mouth is really wide and his head looks like a catfish and short whiskers. MY GOD what do i have ? I swear i'll have my friend upload a pic for me within a couple of days. This thread is not closed. Gee i wish he hadnt fallen out of that log so often, perhaps this is a unique hybrid.
Oh forgot to mention that he is elusive like i mean i've seen this joker 3 times and its only because i rinsed him out of the log.

The original post "pictus" was a typo ,sorry. I do have a Spotted Raphael cat, they "grunt" and have large dorsal fins that almost appear as if they're legs: he walked off of the lotus leaf, grunting all the way, ha ha ha. They attach themselves to driftwood and begin eating thier way thru to a tight fitting nook, where they stay until they've eaten straight through, hence i may see only the back of him for quite some time. They are very attractive until they dissappear.
