Rachel posted her cats and I feel I’d be depriving the world of a prime opportunity to meet my cat.
This handsome beast is my cat, Fëanor (Fay-ah-nor). He is five years old – born Valentine’s Day 2010. He is named after Fëanor, once High King of the Noldor and creator of the Silmarils. He is one of the principal characters of JRR Tolkien’s The Silmarillion. His full name is Fëanor Airwë (Fëanor the Orange), High King of the Back Yard.
He’s enormous – 16 pounds and almost two feet long. Like his namesake, he is stubborn, doesn’t have a lot of common sense, and is noisy. His favorite things are spooning under the covers like a stuffed animal, making noise, knocking things over and watching MotoGP with me (seriously, he loves it).
He’s the best cat in the world.
