Plush buddies

Al snoozing
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.

Teh plushy!!

I think so!

His markings on his face make him look like he's up to something.

Heh. That guy has quite the mug on him! ;)

They're good looking guys, and I hate to be so, uh, "partisan," but these guys don't hold a candle to Maxx Teh Plushy. Maxx is the handsomest kitty I have ever seen. And that's a tough admission for one who adores the Bandicoot.

He does have him some big feeties, eh?

I loves big feeties.

ThePoliticalCat said...

Yes, big feeties are definitely in evidence here. Soon, you'll have four new ones to smooch. I love kissing the kitty feeties (when they're clean). The scent glands in their paws have a delightful, faint fresh bread sort of odor.

I'm sure Arthur will forgive me for mentioning it, but that's his scent as well. Slightly scorched Niagara spray starch. Very manly.

ThePoliticalCat said...

Dr. Barmpot, Arthur J. looks like the manly kind of dude who would forgive you anything. Be sure to remind him that he must take the budding new physicist in paw.

These guys must be Maxx's distant cousins.
Truly an elite family of felines.

Teh plush. Hope there's plenty of hairball medicine in the house.

I used to rub my nose against my Keiki's ears after he'd been sitting in the sun -- delicious!

Just looked at the pedigreed feline agin -- he reminds me of Uncle Fester on The Munsters.

His markings are so heavy they almost look painted on artificially.

No offense meanst to Cooper, by the way -- he's a beauty -- but his markings are so distinctive they jump out at you!
