Edmund

Sir Edmund P. Hillary (Edmund the Rotund) is 6, and too laid-back to worry about who's boss, unless he decides to "sumo" Nitro into submission by falling flat on him. Ed got his name because he climbed all over me when he was tiny, and frequently perched on my head. He was one of a litter born to a semi-feral sheltered by some family friends. Born on my birthday, he just HAD to come home with me. He's very affectionate, and is convinced that the world is his oyster, especially viewed from a perch on my frontal appendages. He sits beside me and stares just above my left shoulder with frightening intensity, edging closer the while. I shove him away. He stares and edges some more. I shove him again. etc. etc. Eventually he creeps me out enough with the staring that I let him climb aboard and we have a quality cuddle. He loves to knead my hair and will pester until i unloose it or swing it over a shoulder to him. Despite his 23 lbs, he is healthy and active, for those who wonder. Online, he is sort of a jovial Falstaffian character with a penchant for Fat Cat ale (and absolutely no head for it)! -Cheryl P. (Meowers from missouri)

Good Morning Fuzz Family!
Hope everyone is doing well.

Edmund does sound like a love bug like Jess said. I just think that is the cutest expression on his face. Does he do that att the time or just when you take his picture.
Umm, those are some big MK's. How does he eat with those, heheh

Not only is Edmund one good looking boy, but also he writes beautiful poetry to his lady-love; and he knows how to address royalty correctly!

On a totally different subject:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAT!! We hope you have a wonderful day and a happy and blessed year ahead.

It's gorgeous fluffy Ed - my Midnight's online boyfurrendkitty! What we need here is a picture showing that big floofy tail. As a fluffaholic, I love big floofy tails! I wish I could cuddle 23 pounds of fluff. Midnight and Cocoa cuddle with me at the same time, but both of them together are a little under 23. What an armload of cuddle Ed would be.

Happy Birthday Kat!!!!!!!

Hi all, Sir Edmund sure is a handsome boy!Sounds like a big ball of fluffy love! I wouldn't mind cuddling with him, since my two don't seem to be the cuddling type.

Happy Birthday Kat! I didn't know your Birthday was in December too! We just did something on Ella's blog this weekend for all the December Birthdays. Hope you have a great Birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KAT. You got a great present with Dante being adopted before Christmas.

And here is the gorgeous, handsome Ed. I remember Missy and KC taking on over him after a party, where KC danced with him. She just fell madly in love with him, too.

And Rosie's right...would you look at the size of those FB's...MK's. Whoa Momma.

He is a doll, and Cheryl, you cracked me up with the part about the staring. Too funny.

It is very important to understand the kitty law: The kitty is supreme! What the kitty wants, the kitty gets!

lol

Also putting this on all the blogs I visit today:
Just wanted to leave a quick note to spread the word...let everyone know they need to come to my blog today (12/18/06) to vote for the name of the new kitty.
