Robyn

This is Robyn our Alpha cat. He's the one that intimidates interlopers - something made easier by the fact that he is a large cat by any standard.


My contribution to the Friday Ark and the current Carnival of the Cats

Oooooh, that's one ferocious looking beast. I hope you have "Beware Of Kitty" signs posted around your yard. On second thought though, it might be fun for would be mischief makers to cross his steely clawed path by surprise.

It would be but sadly he is a gentle giant (except for magpies and anittruder cats then it's business!. It's jus s well given that he is 16-17lbs and is about Maine Coon size!

Yikes, I'm intimidated!

Sadly, I gave my daughter my "This House Protected By Attack Cat" sign, or I could send it to you.

ha ha elastic, so sweet of you and if this is a family cat; in a thousand years, the immense strength and proportions of Jams Castle (sorry I meant King Tutu's castle, coronation is coming up soon, or isnt it?) will be in all centres...it will be a home showcasing sets of pictures of the king and his beautiful pets living nice...

Hail king Tutu's cat!

I do poor beastie a disservice with this photo - he is a give gentle sweety and our 2 girl cats adore hime (he weighs more than the two of them together!)

Sadly he ain't much of a guard cat flying he wouldn't stop someone taking the foundations! As for dominios, King Tutu's mansion is in dire need of a new roof let alone expansopn into lands far and near!

Looks like a bit of Forest Cat in his genes at some point. They are the size of Maine Coons, but have really long coats.

From a cat's point of view, it's tough to tangle with a long hair, because you can't judge what's hair and what's cat. You add the fluffing to a cat that big, and there aren't many toms who would take the chance.

we know his mum is a small black and white cat. It is believed his dad was a scrawny tabby. His brother Fluff is as big and fluffy as Robyn but jet black. We don't know how he came to look like he did but we are glad he did!

Very true about fluffy cats. If I was an interloper I would not want to tangle with one, especially if they are solid cat under the fur. I have seen Robyn in the "set piece" displays and he seems scare the living bejesus out of the few intruders foolhardy to set paw on his patch! Very rare does he actually fight
