Author’s Note: Many thanks to Miss Catherine for letting me ask her questions about her famous freckled feline. Pictures used with permission.
How old is Cheezle?
He will turn 16 Wednesday June 21.
How did he come to live with you?
Cheezle’s mother was a stray cat, and pregnant. My sister’s took her in and she took to me even though i wasn’t a cat person at the time. A few weeks later, we had kittens.
How did he get those awesome freckles?
Orange cats can get freckles as they get older. This article explains it a little more http://www.catster.com/lifestyle/5-remarkable-facts-about-your-cats-nose-freckles
He just got more and more freckles, the older he got
He is so expressive, was it always like that?
I think Cheezle has always had an expressive face. Maybe more so now since I am constantly photographing him
When he was younger and lived with my parents he was an indoor outdoor cat. He loved eating rabbits. In the summer he could catch one every day. When he came to live with me, my parents said the rabbit population exploded!
Right now he is the only pet. He doesn’t like other cats. I would love to get another cat but Cheezle won’t allow it. I don’t want to stress him out.
Yeah. He isn’t big on sharing
Anything else you want to share about Cheezle?
Well… He is very vocal. He does not have a normal meow, it’s more of a howl. Even though he looks angry all the time, he is actually a very sweet cat. He doesn’t bite or scratch and is quite social, at least with me. He hates when I leave him. He greets me everyday at the door when I get home from work.
