The Queenie Princess Turns 18 This Week

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.

  1. Happy birthday, Ms. Queenie Mimi Josefina!!! πŸ‘‘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 ;).

  2. Happy birthday! She is a beauty!

  3. Happy Birthday, Queenie! You sure know how to work it for the camera!!

  4. Happy birthday! The pearls are perfect!

  5. Love it! Happy birthday, Queenie Princess!

  6. You’ve celebrated her well! Wish we had a photos of you capturing pictures of her.

  7. Happy Birthday to your darling cat! Beyond adorable photos!!!

  8. Happy Birthday, Queenie! You are a beautiful cat indeed. Greetings from Vivian and me. πŸ’•

  9. Happy birthday, your highness! You look adorable! Your eyes, your tail, your little white paws, and everything in between. πŸ˜ΊπŸ’—

  10. Happy Birthday, my Queen Princess. You are stunningly beautiful and don’t look a day over 13! πŸŽ‚

    • 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).

  11. Happy Birthday Queenie Mimi Josefina!!!

    What a sweetie! I can’t believe she lets you dress her in pearls. No cat of mine would allow that! πŸ™‚

  13. Happy Birthday your highness!!!!!! Looking good!

  14. She is beautiful! May there be many more birthdays for her πŸ™‚

  15. She has definitely mastered the regal look. I guess as a true Queen, someone else is holding her handbag?

  16. Very regal indeed, Happy Birthday Your Majesty πŸ™‚

    • 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).

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. She sure looks young! Beautiful cat. How lovely that she has such a great life and home!

  20. What beautiful shots of a very beautiful cat.

  21. OMG, she’s so gorgeous! Happy belated birthday to Queenie Princess, and please apologize to her on my behalf for my tardiness! πŸ˜…
