On Friday, April 1, (or thereabouts) Tiger Queenie Princess Mimi Josefina turns 18 years old. Her feistiness has calmed down, but she’s still pretty agile. She lies on the back of the recliner, for instance.
The other day we had a little pearl-draped photoshoot for the Queenie Princess. Here is our resident royalty on her throne.
And here she is looking so adorable on the fake fur on the piano.The fur that matches her green eyes.
And, finally, here she is at rest after a grueling modeling shoot.

Happy birthday, Ms. Queenie Mimi Josefina!!! 👑Such a fun idea
Hah, she had a big bow on her head for birthday a few years ago, but when she was younger she didn’t like getting dressed up. Now she’s resigned to it ;).
Happy birthday! She is a beauty!
She knows it hah!
Happy Birthday, Queenie! You sure know how to work it for the camera!!
She does! Although she is one of those cats who prefers not to look straight at the camera. So getting her face on in the middle pic was quite the accomplishment. She’s become more amenable to mom’s fun and games in her old age.
A coy diva, then. The photos are adorable.
Happy birthday! The pearls are perfect!
Haha, aren’t they?! I found them in the back of a closet. They were in a bunch of old Mardi Gras beads :).
Love it! Happy birthday, Queenie Princess!
She says “thank you,” but she says it with a little “of course” tone. hahaha
Of course she does. 😏
We used to have a princess cat. Then she became the Crotchety Old Lady Princess Cat.
Hahaha, luckily for us, Tigeez the Queenie girl (yes we have all kinds of names for her) is more mellow than when she was younger.
You’ve celebrated her well! Wish we had a photos of you capturing pictures of her.
Oh hahaha. Yes, that would be funny! A video maybe?
Happy Birthday to your darling cat! Beyond adorable photos!!!
Thank you, Linda! She is a cutie, I know :)!
Happy Birthday, Queenie! You are a beautiful cat indeed. Greetings from Vivian and me. 💕
She says Hi to Vivian and to you, too! She’s got her chin in my laptop right now!
Happy birthday, your highness! You look adorable! Your eyes, your tail, your little white paws, and everything in between. 😺💗
Yes, all of that!!! And her sass and her sweetness :).
Aw, yes, many hearts!!!
Happy Birthday, my Queen Princess. You are stunningly beautiful and don’t look a day over 13! 🎂
Aw, that is so sweet. I will tell her right away . . . ok, she just read it herself as she’s sitting on my lap now. Even if I’m in a different room if I sit or lie down she is there, climbing on me. Sometimes it puts Perry’s nose out of joint as he thinks he is the Cute Cat in the house (he is).
Happy Birthday Queenie Mimi Josefina!!!
She says, “Thank you, Uncle John!!!! Say hi to the doggos!” (She likes dogs better than cats).
They say “Hi” back.
What a sweetie! I can’t believe she lets you dress her in pearls. No cat of mine would allow that! 🙂
Hehe, I can’t believe it either. Many many years ago, daughter attempted to put a Hanukkah sweater on her, and she freaked out. She absolutely hated D for years afterward. This kitty holds a grudge! Now they are friends. She’s really mellowed.
Well, by her age she’d better be mellow!
Hehe, I’m so glad she is. Love having her lying on my chest, drooling over me hahaha.
Happy Birthday your highness!!!!!! Looking good!
Thank you. Yes, I am the most beautiful queenie princess in the universe. My mama says so.
She is beautiful! May there be many more birthdays for her 🙂
Thank you, Marie. She has a vet appointment on Friday. There are a couple of things the vet needs to check over. Fingers crossed.
I’m crossing all my fingers and toes!
Thanks! Leaving soon.
She has definitely mastered the regal look. I guess as a true Queen, someone else is holding her handbag?
Hahaha. That would be me, as usual!
Very regal indeed, Happy Birthday Your Majesty 🙂
We thank for your royal good wishes, commoner! (Andrea, if she were a British cat she might have a better idea how to speak to you. Alas, she’s American, and she has to make it up as she goes).
Luanne, I LOVE these photos of your resident Queen – how lucky you are to have had her these years! The pearls are a definite perfect touch! She is beautiful. Celebrate.
We are so lucky. She now has a skin growth that we don’t know about–is it benign or not? Our vet froze it off and will freeze again in two weeks because she’s really too old for surgery. Cats do not handle anesthesia all that well.
I just admire the fact that you can get her to the vet!
Bless her heart.
I love the photos…they made me want to get a cat. And start wearing my own pearls.
Hahaha, I know what you mean! I actually have some nice pearls and never wear them! Need to figure out a way to jazz them up somehow.
She sure looks young! Beautiful cat. How lovely that she has such a great life and home!
What beautiful shots of a very beautiful cat.
Aw, thank you, Carol! She’s a dear!
OMG, she’s so gorgeous! Happy belated birthday to Queenie Princess, and please apologize to her on my behalf for my tardiness! 😅
I will tell her. I’m afraid her health is starting to become “complicated.” So sad watching that happen.
Oh, sad to see… 😥
Very sad. We lost so many cats this past year.
