Cooper, AKA "International Winner, Supreme Grand Champion, Lunarcoons' Copernicus"
Cooper and Al, who are related (Cooper is Al's nephew)
New reader Sherwood kindly sent me photos of his two giantic plushy buddies, Cooper and Al. They live with Sherwood and his wife in California. Cooper is a retired showcat, which accounts for his hilarious long name. Sherwood reports that, "Cooper is actually something of a celebrity; he was TICA International Longhaired Cat of the Year in the 2003-2004 season." The cattery that showed him went out of the cat breeding business and wanted to keep Cooper as a pet, but he didn't get along with the other male cat in the house.
Now he's living a life of ease and luxury, lording over the household and the three dogs in the home.
