As in the Handsomest Prince!
This is Cornelius.
He is the Original Handsomest Prince. He’s 14 years old, HUGE and he’s also a bit of a dick. As all cats are. No surprise there. He’s afraid of ALL THE THINGS except my grandchildren which is most strange but much appreciated and respected. He still plays like a kitten and can be found yowling every morning at 4am and sleeping all day on my bed upon which he leaves a layer of orange fur that makes me sneeze. Yes I could close my bedroom door but then he wouldn’t be able to lay in the sun and then what kind of cat mum would I be?!
This is Mooshum. The second Handsomest Prince.
He too is 14 years old, acts like a puppy and is exceptional with the grandkids. He’s also very naughty and does a bad thing every day but he’s endlessly amusing and has the biggest, sweetest heart so I don’t mind!
We’ve had Corny since he was a kitten. He was the runt of the litter and now he’s 24 lbs! Solid muscle that cat. He’s my second long lived cat and I hope we get a few more good years out of him. He shows no signs of aging!
We’ve had Mooshy for 4 years, adopting him as a senior dog from SCARS. He was a community dog who someone loved very, very much. It shows in his behavior and in the way he was given up. ( The other dogs were beating him up and his owners were afraid he was going to be killed, so he was taken in by a rescue group doing spays and neuters for a second chance at life. Don’t feel too sad for him. He’s a bit of a dick in that his mouth writes cheques his ass can’t cash! ) He transitioned from being free range to being a house dog in no time and it’s an honor to be his last home. Mooshum is definitely old in body but not in spirit. I hope he lives forever but since I cant have that, I hope he lives well until the end, then dies quick, in his sleep.
